Burning smell usually signals that a part burned. This is a major malfunction, the power source of the tv was literally fried. Replacing it will be quite expensive - around $250 - and definitely a job for a pro - who know what else was damaged in there, the tv must be tested by someone who knows this very well.

The color went green all of a sudden on my 51F500, and the autofocus won't fix it.


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 Sony2_bing.gif,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer2_bing.gif, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms

  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a 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

How do i set up surround sound on a hitachi big screen tv model 51f510


On your jack panel in the rear of the set look for the Audio Output Jacks. They will be Red and White. Just run the cables from there to your Aux Audio Input of your surround sound receiver.

Hitachi 51G500A and the screen when blank


Hi I am vortash I have just looked at the service manual for this set and it actually does not use a bulb as it is not an Lcd or DLP projection TV . It actually employs three CRT based tubes that produce the picture with automatic focus and convergence systems . If you do not have the manual for this set you can download it from http://www.safemanuals.com free of charge It says that if you have sound and no picture turn the set off and unplug it for 3o seconds then replace plug and turn on from switch on set not from the wall plug switch .. as this may reset the tv and cure the problem .. hope this helps regrads Vortash

Picture on track


The problem is an assembly called the "Flex Converter". This is not available from Hitachi, even though the set is relatively new. The converter must be removed from the set and sent out to Hitachi for repair.
