Question about Televison & Video

4 Answers

I have a Hitachi TV model 43FDX01B where the red shifted left about 2" and cannot be adjusted with the convergence setup. This happened suddenly after hearing a snap in the TV so something fried. I have no schematic.

    yes I'm pretty good with electronics but only have a volt-ohmeter for trouble-shooting and no schematic of the TV. I saw another recommendation that it might be the STK-392-150 (3-Channel Convergence Correction Circuit) which looks like just one chip with about 18 legs out one side. I just don't want to go replacing parts at random and hope for the best but may not have much choice. I also don't want to send it to the shop for an expensive repair considering the new TVs on the market now.

    Another observation on the problem while trying to mess with the convergence adjustment. I can move the red up and down but I cannot move the red left or right and the red line is stuck about 1 in. (not 2 in.) to the left of center. When I switch to the blue I can move it up and down and to the right but I cannot get it to move to the left. So there certainly appears to be a problem with the convergence but I'm not sure if that explains why the red shifted so far left (beyond the normal convergence adjustment).

    I'm not sure I follow your answer. It sounds like I should replace the STK-392-150 for starters but what about the video control board that you mentioned? Does the problem I'm describing still point you in that direction and if so do you have any idea what the part number is for the video control board?

    I'm still trying to get an answer to my question on my Hitachi 43FDX01B TV. Thanks.

  • Keene Little Apr 27, 2008

    Thanks everyone for your answers. I'll replace the IC first (I'll order two of them in case the replacement fries from something that caused the problem). Since I have no schematic for the TV is there a recommended way to check the fuse resistors and/or micro/pico fuses? Can they be checked on the board or should I pull them out to check?

  • Keene Little Apr 28, 2008

    Follow-up question for someone please. Where is the STK-392-150 IC located on this TV? I see two STK-392-110s with a big heat sink but I don't see the -150. I've only pulled the back panel off so if it's behind the front panel I guess I'll have to completely remove the whole enclosure. Thanks for your help.

You can first try fixing it by going into Service Mode, but I believe you will need to replace the IC you mentioned which can be obtained at this website ->
http://www.partstore.com/Part/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/43FDX01B/Hitachi+Ltd/Hitachi/CZ00433/New.aspx
If that doesn't help, then we can explore further options, but I am confident that you will solve your problem with that replacement.

The following Directions are for getting into Service Mode


Important !
After you get to the item that needs adjusting
Write down the original setting
just in case you have to go back.

1. TV turned off
2. Press 'Power' and 'Input' buttons on the TV for more than 3 seconds..
You are now in the Adjustment mode
The letter P indicates picture and A indicates audio.
4. Use the 'Menu up or down' on the remote to select the item.
5. Write down the old value of the item before changing.
6. Use the 'Menu left or right' to change the data.


Thank you for using Fixya and have a good day

    you can check the fuses with an ohm meter with them still on the tv

    I believe that those two 110s are the problem and most likely you read about someone replacing them with the 150s, that's what I would do, I don't think you will find any 150s on the board, they would be next to those heatsinks if anywhere

I would suggest to replace the STK-392-150 first and check for open fuse resistors and or micro/pico fuses around the STK ICs.
In many occasions they burnt to protect the rest of the circuitry.
You can buy the parts from this website.

Replace the STK you will be fine this is very normal problem with the single IC. Replace this and tell me if it does not fix it. You can find that IC for less than 20 dollars.

Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Hitachi screen went blank?


1) Consult service manual for details.........procedure issues?
Sounds like the digital convergence unit got confused....
You may have to start all over again at default....
2) When converging a PTV, less is better ( adjustments) unless
you are positive adjustments will yield some improvement..
3) Info source = www.HitachiServiceUSA.com
