Hitachi 43fwx20b Convergence Problems


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. 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, 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 TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

Magic focus works briefly, then the tv is out of alignment


You need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some of the convergence resistors. You can buy the parts online from various sources or you can get a complete kit with instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

Will not show red color in picture, magic focus shows red though


You have a projection light element out. I had the green element go on mine. I had a service agreement so a repair tech changed it.

Yellow and blue color ruins total picture on 50" tv,can't get rid


lupe0112,

I'm no expert, but I think that you have a problem with the convergence of the 3 color guns. I've been working on a similar problem. As a first step, have you tried "Magic Focus?" The Magic Focus button for the Hitachi 53UDX10B is at the left of the small front panel controls that also include your RCA composite and SVideo connectors. Let the set warm up for about 20 minutes (as recommended by the user guide), and then press the Magic Focus button. When you press the Magic focus button, the set will auto align the 3 color guns. If this doesn't fix your problem, unplug the TV for at least 4 hours and try again.

One half of picture is distorted


to create the total geometry in the tv is needed a system called Convergence.Convergence amplifiers are damaged in this unit, magic focus cannot work because magic focus works to level computer and controls the amplifiers damaged. this repair is for a technician because an adjustment is needed after the amplifier's replacement.

53swx10b bowed picture


Double check your work for errors such as solder bridges or incorrect resistor placement. Look carefully anywhere solder could have dripped or splattered to cause the bowing. If you entered the digital convergence mode to touch it up, you will have to re initialize the magic focus for it to function. Good luck

Loss of color picture


I have a blue-ish yellow ghost tint which just appeared on my 51" 51SWX20B made July 2002. Did the magic focus got a number 5 at the end. Did you get a number when you did the magic focus?
