Dustinis,

While it may be true that your son hit the button on the quick focus, I doubt that he caused the problem. Why was he hitting it in the first place? Probably because the unit was not in focus, I would bet. The better answer would be that you have a problem with the focus on you unit.

It is the convergence circuit which needs reapaired, you need to replace the convergence ICs and your son did not cause the problem. To solve this problem go to my tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4220499-change_projection_tv_convergence_ics which will walk you through the precedure of changing the ICs as well as where to get the parts at the best prices.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the excellent rating. Great ratings will keep the experts solving problems.

We cannot get the color to align. It appears like there is a blue or yellow background around words


If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as www.TvRepairKits.com

My t.v.focus is like double vision and the color is not right.


convergence failure that tv has 3 CRTs-cathode ray tube- and it has a circuit that keeps each picture projected from the tubes aligned together called convergence. so if you have a picture that has 3 pictures of the same image in red green and blue then it is defintely a convergence failure. the part numbers of the parts causing the failure are STK394-160 and there also can be some burnt resistors in the same circuit.

When watchin tv there is a blur or double vision


I think that is a convergence error and/or a lens focus issue. A professional repair tech or equivalently experienced person can repair this rather inexpensively.

The picture is blurred (double vision) and the picture is also bowed. It appears the bulbs are out of focus. Is this fixable?


Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually charge between $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Hitachi Projection TV 57F500A red looks double.


You need to replace both of the convergence IC's and any bad resistors around them that protect them from damaging the power supply.

This repair can usually be done in the home and takes about an hour; I have done hundreds of them and now is a slow time of year for TV shops; look around if you are not able to do this repair; you can buy the chips on Ebay for less than 15 dollars for a pair plus shipping.

This is a very common problem in projection sets.

If this has helped you give me a vote here as I do this for free. If you have questions or need help:

You may have a bad convergance chip, a bad CRT( picture tube ), CRT Board ( board pluged into the picture tube),or a bad video chip. Although this is somwhat a common problem on this model of set, I have found many different fixes. Sorry I can't be of more help. Good Luck
