Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Focus/alignment of cyan, magenta, and yellow creates 3 images that create a triple image. The Magic Focus button does not help. Is this something I can fix. I am unfamiliar with the parts and terms of a proj tv that i've been reading about in this forum, but I am very handy in tackling any problem that comes my way.

    I also have the 3 image problem that will not clear up. I've tried vacuuming the dust from the back of the tv but still same problem. Is there anything else I can do?

    My problem is similar. My picture looks like its in 3-D. I was told to say that the color is bleeding. Could someone suggest something to try. I am female and don't know much about it but I'm willing to try. (smile)

Good Day, y'll;
Sounds like bad convergence IC’s, chips. Hit recommends using STK392-150’s and replacing the bias resistors.
Good luck, Big Irish.

Remove purple haze around edges


The set needs to be focussed and reconverged. The red and blue images combined make a magenta/purple image. Adding green makes it white. Depending on the type of TV, if it's a CRT projection TV then there's an electronic focus control for each of the three tubes as well as the mechanical adjustment of the optical lenses. Given the description, then I'd have a look at the electronic focus first. A sudden shift in focus suggests that something in that circuit has given out. This would cause the red and blue images to go soft enough to create a halo around objects on screen.

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

How do I know I need a new projection lamp? My tv


This set does not have a lamp. It has 3 crt tubes that converge to create a color picture. The convergance is off a little causeing this affect. Go into the menu and look for convergence or magic focus. You can download the owners manual from Toshiba website to do this. You will need the remote that came with the set.

Replace the convergence Ic's with a kit that is available through your local parts distributor

You must replace all resistors in the kit
If you are not good at soldering and de- soldering have a local tv shop do it for you

Good luck

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.

I have a 3 year old mitsubishi wd-52526 lcd projector tv that is starting to have some focus/image alignment issues - in general picture is a little out of focus and there are rainbows around things at the...


the differnt guns are out of alignment. Your tv has 3 lcd screens, a red, green and blue one what overlay to form the image. Sometimes they move slightly for what ever reason and that causes the rainbow and out of focus picture. Its something that a trained pro should do but is a cheap fix and won't set you back too much
