This intermittent problem is very difficult to rectify. Just contact the authorised service center for Hitachi at your town. The work is really a skilled one, that a user cannot do it with ease.

If the loss of picture is either on top half or bottom half of screen. there are y buffer boards that go from top to bottom on left side of screen when looking at back that control those sections. when there is loss of half of picture then buffer associated with that area would be at fault and would need to be replaced. when i see a degrading symptom such as loss of picture on top half or bottom half leading to no picture issue normally you would check heat syncs on y sustain board and if not heating up after a few minutes of being turned on would recommend replacing y main and both y upper and lower y buffer boards as they complete a circuit

This is an indication of convergence issues. There are two ic chips that control this and there is a likely hood of there failure and need to be replaced. there possible other issues with ouput resistors and fuses. At my shop the cost to replace these chips are 200 to 350. not a too difficult repair.

Hitachi blue patch


I've had one for about a year and a half. This is the second time it happened to me. The first time they replaced it for free(warranty). Now my warranty is up and it is starting to happen again. I think that this must be a common problem in this model. I recommend contacting Hitachi and seeing what they have to say about it. I'm yet to call them again, but I will soon.

Blue Yellow Wave


I believe what you have is a convergence problem and it is usually caused by two Integrated Circuits going bad which also opens up one or two resistors associated with them. Replacing the Convergence Ic'S - (Ik04 & Ik05) and Resistor Rk62 a 1.8 Ohm .5w. Metal Film type should take care of the problem. As far as costs involved, I would guess about $350-$425 to get repaired. With it only being about 4 years old, it should have that many more years left of good use for you.
