How did it get zoomed in without a remote? You will need a remote to perform the zoom function. Have you tried resetting the TV by unplugging it from the power source for at least an hour, then replugging? If that does not reset it you will need a remote to do it I am afraid.

Thanks

    You are going to need some remote then for sure, you may want to borrow it again from your friend, there is no other way to unzoom but with a remote.

    Thanks

What you will want to do is go into the users guide and find the reset factory defaults option usually it involves holding a button or two while starting the device however are sometimes very different


hope this helps

Hopefully you can adust the picture size with your cable remote. There should be an hdzoom(#) or aspect button on it.

If you are on the wrong input on the tv you can also experience this problem so make sure you are on the correct one.

You can also experience this problem if your cable box is set to the wrong resolution so make sure that it isn't.

    No. You need a remote unless there is a picture size option in the tvs menu and the tvs menu can be accessed without one. Are you sure there is no format button on the cable remote even?

How do i fix this dip line its model 57 uwx 20 b


Look like RG convergence is out , but it's hard to tell from the pic
if you can't correct it with the set up in " convergence " on the setup menu , then your Convergence chips are failing

if you handy with a screw driver and a soldering iron you can swap out the chip yourself since it's not worth taking to a repair shop
cost for the chips 65.00 -70 , you can get cheaper if you shop around

HITACHI 57UWX20B has blue ghost shadows how do I


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

First of all there is no light engine inside your set. Your model is CRT based. Can you better describe what you mean by the green only working occasionally? What exactly is the picture doing? Also, please confirm that your model is: 57UWX20B.

Thanks,
Dan

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
