Question about Hitachi 46F500 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

We have a 46" Hitachi TV that suddenly after the cable man hooked up a new receiver box has gone funky! The top left of the screen is wavy down about a third of the screen and the wording is blurred...almost like a double image in red. Could this be the TV or something to do with the new receiver???

What you just described is a convergence issue, Now most tv's have a auto focus button on them or the remote try giving that a push (if your tv has it) I cannot go by the model above because fixya has categorization errors or people select the wrong tv.

But this is a convergence issue if the focus button does not take care of it your going to need repair.

thanks for using fixya.com , please do leave positive feedback or ratings, Thanks

I'm assuming you have a cable converter box (set-top box) that you have hooked to your receiver. Check the box volume using the cable company's remote control. These boxes frequently have variable audio output, and if you turn the volume down on the box you'll have the symptom you're describing. When you press the volume up or down buttons on the remote, you'll usually see a volume bar on the TV screen. As you raise the volume, there may be a point marked by an arrow, which is where you should set the volume. On some boxes, when you get to a certain level the words "best stereo" appear, and that's where to set it. If your box doesn't have some indication like this just leave the volume set 3/4 or full up. Then the volume on the receiver should function properly with the cable TV input.

The tv says no signal new out of box


It's kind of hard to answer your question with not knowing how your hooking up your TV. If you are hooking up a antenna or cable to your RF in you need to make sure you have your input set to TV and autoprogram your channels. If your using a cable box hooked to your RF in then you need make sure it is on and autoprogram your channels. If you are using a cable box, satellite receiver, or DVD player hooked up to your component, composite, or HDMI.input then you need to make sure you have you input set for that. Hope that helps.

Hitachi ultravision model number 42hds69 cable problem.


Usually you need a decoder to receive "Cable" With your "Cable" usually you connect the Cable antenna, to the Cable "Box" form the "Box" to the Audio Visual EXTERNAL inputs, in the back of the TV. Now IF your TV can receive the "Cable" directly, then you would have to connect the Antenna, into the rear of the TV, now you would go to the "Tuning" section, and, the TV, would automatically "Search" for any available channels. They would then, be displayed at the end of the scan. Please find a user manual below, this will help you tune in, IF you can. If you cannot, you will have to get a cab;e "Box" and a remote. Hookup to the TV, from the "Box" to the TV, via, Audio and Video cables. You use the "Box's" remote to change channels and volume. You first must set the TV's Volume, & picture setting, the TV, is basically just used as a "Monitor" for the "Box". Hope this helps..

Picture is wavy and double vision


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Was playing around with the TV's menu and changed the Tuning Band from "HRC cable" to "IRC cable". Suddenly I have colour again. No one had adjusted any of the controls, so still not sure why one day it was fine and the next day it had gone to black and white, but changing the Tuning Band fixed the colour problem for me.
