Question about Hitachi 53SBX01B 53" Rear Projection Television
Colors are offset and need to be adjusted so they all show up as one color
Your HItachi has an automatic color convergence (color beam alignment) feature called "Magic Focus" which can be accessed from the set-up menu. When selected, you will be prompted to push the front panel "Magic Focus" button... do so only one time and do not hold the button in more than three seconds to enter this mode. The process takes about 90 seconds to complete, but a second push of the button will stop the process with no change.
If the convergence is still bad after the auto-correction process, then the guns are misaligned beyond its corrective capabilities, and would require manual convergence.
A service manual detailing how to do this is available for a nominal charge at http://www.how2files.com/bykey.php/hitachi.
If you don't have one, a free download of the user's manual is available at https://merchant.satisfusion.com/sf/WarrantyCenter/registration/secure/Hitachi/Manuals/ModelNumberManualLinks.jsp?masterModelOID=SF-990486114-595&random=1213688278588.
Hope this is helpful, let us know if you have any other questions, and good luck!
