Hitachi Ultravision Model# 46ux17k

Tv was gave to me. When you first turn it on it takes about 10 minutes to warm up and get focus. Then when it comes on the color is weak and fades to black and white at times, and tried to adjust color from menu but no matter what I do it stays the same.

    I have a Hitachi #46ux17k given to me. No matter what I do I cant get the color bright, I tried adjusting the knob at bottom of tubes and it helped very little. Also when I try and line up colors + line the verticle line is wider and fuzzy and some times its squiggley. And also the color goes black and white and back to color. I would like to fix this TV myself so any suggestions will help.
    ThankYou

This type of problem is mainly due to problems in the IC and hence the tv loses its focus and color patterns. You will need to check your tv IC and most likely get it replaced which shouldn't be too hard if you know how to solder.

Let me know what you think when you check this, if you need any help let me know, also be aware of the capacitors which can shock you with an enormous charge.

Depending on the age of the tv, other parts may be contributing to the problem.

    repair shops will not usually give a free estimate, it will be standard to charge at least $50 just to look at it.

    Here is a link of what one would look like

    They will be on the main board and should be labeled STK-150 or some other number, they are the first thing I would replace and shouldn't cost too much, they can be bought at an electronics store like Radio Shack.

If you can, take it to a shop where they will give a free estimate. Then ask them what exactly needs to be replaced. If you have trouble finding one, call the troubleshooting phone number. (You can probably find it online). Then I would suggest looking on ebay to find the part for a cheap price.

Your TV needs to get repaired. Take it to the nearest repair shop and get the lamp replaced. It can cost upwards of 150 dollars though.

Please let me know if this helps. Take care!

I think it would likely work if you trimmed it evenly around the sides in order to maintain the central position. Focus may have to be adjusted but thats all.

I Have a Hitachi Ultravision projetion TV Ned help to fix it.


This sounds like the solder joints on one of the convergence output IC's have cracked loose or the IC itself is defective and quitting when it warms up. The IC needs to be either resoldered or replaced.
