Question about Hitachi Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a Hitachi TV Model # SP50W - 120V 60 HZ - the problem is the color - a few weeks ago, all of a suddent the tv colors disappeared and became very bright - no crispness to the picture at all - it's almost like a bulb blew out or something. The color is all reds, yellows, and oranges - they kind of run together and are very shiny and glimmery - my email address is: crp@nashobawinery.com

SOURCE: How long does a lamp/bulb of a Toshiba DLP 46HM95 46 in last?

Your bulb may be blowing because of airflow issues or power cycling issues, first does your outlet get switched off at any point in time? if so you may be killing the bulb before it cools, if you turn the set on/off alot and or restart it after off quickly this could lead to permature bulb failure, if the original lamp was not replaced with a proper lamp to match the ballast it could blow the bulb. If your tv is too near a heat vent or the airflow thru the set is not adequate it could blow the bulb.

Reset tv to factory settings refer to your owners manual. If still no picture attach a DVD or video player and test. If still no pic refer to tech.

IT IS A COSTLY REPAIR IF YOU HAVE TO PAY A TECHNICIAN

SOURCE: 65" Mitsubishi projection tv, my colors are not matching up.

If red or blue will not adjust in some direction--you have a Convergence circuit problem---

This model (WS-65809) uses two of the STK-392-570 Convergence IC's---

Green for a good reason is not adjustable in the customer mode---it is only adjusted for the Geometry or straightness of the picture and then red and blue are adjusted to it.

If you are able to do this repair yourself you can save the set and a lot of money---most shops charge 300-400 for this type of repair in this set.

You can buy both chips for about 14 dollars on Ebay- and I have step by step---start to finish instructions for this repair in this set--they tell also everything you will need to do and what you need.

If you want the instructions let me know---I am not allowed to post MY email here.....but you.....

Not everyone can do this repair---Let me know if you have any questions or need advice----

If you get someone else to do the repair make sure BOTH chips get replaced or the set will have the same problem again in a few months.

How do I fix horizontal thin lines across the screen?


Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

Will a LG LED TV model 42LV3500 bought in Canada work in India


I'm sorry to inform you that the TV is not directly compatible with the power and color system available in India. The TV is only designed to work with 120V/60 Hz and NTSC color System. The power specification in India is 230V/50Hz. The color system is PAL.

However, you can use a Voltage converter and PAL to NTSC converter to make use of the TV in India.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if you require any clarifications.

Sounds like your TV needs new convergence chips.

Go to this web site.

If you can handle a soldering iron and solder fairly well, then you can do the repair.

Hope this helps.

Sounds like Calibration is needed on the projection internals. Your TV uses a rear-projection system and the problem is either in the imaging LCD Unit or the light filter. I see in a previous thread you have changed the bulb. You can invest in a voltage regulator to keep the hardware in factory condition.
Also you can burn a DVD of a stuck pixel remedy video and run it on the screen with full brightness and full contrast. This is used for plasma burns and stuck pixels on conventional Flat panel TVs but can repair color issues with projection systems. This therapy is focused on the imaging unit between the projector and the main drop of your tv.
please feel free to post a more in-depth description or any changes
