Question about Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

3-D picture My picture suddenly without warning, looks like a 3-D picture. I tried the magic focus and it did'nt help. I posted on this web site and was told to adjust the focus knob on the inside of the tv on the left side but I can't seem to find it. I don't want to touch anything other than the knob for fear of getting shocked. Is there any other way to locate this knob? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Good Day, ladyluck5509;
It sounds like the TV is experiencing an auto focus problem. That in other words is a convergence problem, needing to replace the convergence IC's, chips. There is no known focus knob. If you are concern of shocking oneself, I would recommend that you seek a factory authorized service center for repair. Always, always get an estimate first.The normal/average cost for this repair should run between $350.00-450.00.
Good Luck, Big Irish.

I need to line up my colors and magic focus does not work.


If picture looks 3d in some way you have a convergence problem.

This set should use two of the STK-392-150 CHIPS FOR THIS.

The repair can be a do it yourself one if you have some skill. Magic focus only attempts to adjust at about 18 points on the screen.

Parts cost will be under 25 dollars. The repair consists of getting at the chips (2) and replacing both--on EBAY they will cost under 15 dollars (I fix sets and use a seller there).

Hitachi 43fwx20b Convergence Problems


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

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking picture

You can see some more examples and find a fix here

As per statement, "the magic focus works great, the colors are bright and aligned" it means the tubes are working ..you need feed a signal to see the picture...the tv video goes muted without signal

Poss. convergence problem with Hitachi 53UDX10B Ultravision


You have convergence problem. Either bad connections on ics, ics are bad or voltages to convergence circuit are missing. There are no bulbs in this set. 3 picture tubes,red,green and blue produce a picture than when alighned(converged) correctly on top of each other gives you a color picture.When not you get the effect you are describing. Frst you can try the magic focus in the menu.

Will not show red color in picture, magic focus shows red though


You have a projection light element out. I had the green element go on mine. I had a service agreement so a repair tech changed it.

Colors are separated on the top from the left to right


Probably the color convergence is off. I had a similar problem. Have you tried the magic focus button yet? That is located at left in the small front control panel. Power on TV, wait 20 min (according to user guide), then press the magic focus. If that doesn't fix the problem, you could try the service mode alignment procedure. But that's a little trickier. I don't have a link handy for that procedure right now, but will look for it if magic focus doesn't re-align your color convergence.

No picture, have sound


Dude, you dont have the same problem thanks for junking up my post.

Ok, so I have replaced the SUB power assembly and the SUB Defconvergence board, picture looks decent however magic focus just blanks the screen out and cannot adjust manually does the same thing.

Is there a way to enter the service menu and initialize the magic focus functions after servicing.

It must be using the saved ROM settings, but it wont let me adjust anything convergence wise.

Thanks,

Joe

Green and magenta colors offset in picture


Sounds like convergence problems, set may have been moved lately and this can cause it. Did you try Magic Focus when the set was warm or did you try it when you just turn on? Set needs to be warm, before you try it. If nothing works you will need convergence kit
