    I have a bow on the top left of the screen then last night it appears that the red light is no longer in focus all images are off by 2'' or more and it looks like the picture is in 3D. my serial # is V1G007195 any help would be great.

    Hi there- I finally got the convergenc ic's changed out, however one of the smaller resistors looks as though it is burnt. how do I know what size I need to replace? Ps- I havent put back together so still not sure if fixed. Thanks for all your help!! Marieke

  • macshoney Jun 13, 2008

    Wow! Thanks for being superfast!! The number is RK42, it isn't toning out, while most all the others are- however not sure if has to be replaced or since we havn't put back together aren't sure that it wouldn't work with it just the way it is- what would you suggest?? thanks so much!! Marieke

  • macshoney Jun 13, 2008

    Great - Thanks, it looks like: red

    maroon??

    gold (burnt)

    gold

    I wasnt sure where to look for the tag- Thanks, Marieke

    Hi there- I found a stamp that says DP14G/26 does that mean its a 3.3 OHM 1 watt resistor? The one in question is 2nd over from the left- Thanks a million, Marieke

  • macshoney Jun 14, 2008

    Hi there, replaced IC's and both 3.3 ohm resistors. Picture is better than before however still have pinkish and green shadows. I tried magic focus and resetting using small button inside front left and cannot get the grid to line up. along the top of grid and bottom its bowed out, and red and green do not align- any help?? Thanks again, Marieke

  • macshoney Jun 15, 2008

    After all replacemenrts, and picture off just a bit, I had a problem with the instructions for getting to the grid to align the red, blue and green in the diagostic mode. I kept searching the site and found someone else who could not get the dotted lines to move left or right, or up or down. He said he pressed tv-0-1 on remote first so I tried that, and it worked and allowed me to adjust grid. I saved all info to Rom and followed the directions to save magic focus, and the picture is PERFECT!! Thanks FIXYA****

    I have a Hitachi RPTV model # 53UWX10B. Recently, I turned on the TV and had a blue and yellow shadow on the screen. Very noticable when there's writing on the screen. Also, the picture seems to bow towards the top left of the screen. I tried the Magic Focus from the remote and the button on the TV itself, but did not correct the problem. I don't have a service manual, so, I don't know how to get the grid to appear on screen to line up the red, green, and blue. Should I go ahead and order a service manual, or do I need to replace these chips and resistors that macshoney replaced? Would the service manual be helpful in any way? I have the owners manual, but it tells you nothing about repairs. I don't want to spend $400 for a repair, I'd just as soon get a new LCD flat panel. This problem is very, very similar to what macshoney described.

You need to replace the convergence ICs. If you can verify the model number of your set I will post the IC numbers you need and post a link where you can get replacement ics with instalation instructions so you can do the repar yourself and save about 400 dollars

    Your model uses two Convergence ICs they will both need to be replaced they are STK392-110 you can get new replacements at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself which requires basic soldering ability.

    Heres the link.

    i will have to have the board location number for the resistor such as R321 then I can look up the information for you.

    Hitachi used two different resistors for RK42v depending on which chassis you have It should be marked on the rear tag A DP17 used a 2.2 ohm 1 watt metal oxide and the DP14G used a 3.3 ohm 1 watt metal oxide resistor. If youre not able to determine the chassis number let me know the color banding on the resistor and I can identify it by the colors.

  • Sonny Berry
    Sonny Berry Jun 13, 2008

    RED , RED, GOLD and GOLD would be 2.2 ohm 1 watt 5% tolerance metal oxide resistor. If it were brown , brown, gold gold it would be a 3.3 ohm 1 watt resistor

  • Sonny Berry
    Sonny Berry Jun 13, 2008

    If its a DP14G its a 3.3 ohm. Often the brown color bands can look red or maroon. But the DP14G uses 3.3 ohm for that resistor there should be numerous resistors identical to that one where you can compare color bands if you need to , but its a 3.3 ohm 1 watt metal oxide 5% tolerance resistor

  • Sonny Berry
    Sonny Berry Jun 15, 2008

    i would check the rest of the 3.3 ohm resistors as its nit un common for quite a few to be open and they wont always show any sign of being burnt.

The hitachi 46f510 has went out of foucs how to fix it loos as if u watch through wax paper


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

My son has pushed the wrong button and now my tv looks 3d. I've went through all the menu setting and can't fix it


Your son did not cause the problem. The convergence integrated circuit(s) have failed and requires an authorized Hitachi servicer to correct.

Did you try to physically unplug the TV? Leave it unplugged for a few minutes then plug it back in.

We have a 50 inch Hitachi tv. Last night when we turned it on the lamp light and the temp light started blinking red and the tv would never come on. What do we need to do to fix it?


Probably needs the bulb replaced. Look in your manual for a bulb replacement number, surf the net, there is a lot out there to choose from. But.... make sure you buy a original hitachi replacement bulb. Hope this is helpful.

This is a problem with the convergence circuit. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These ICs are large and black, attached to a heat sink and are marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted on your progress.
