Is this a new television? Under warranty? You need a service call.

Vertical position does not work on remote. Magic focus on green goes half way stops then number five comes on screen. Hitachi 51inch rear projection tv


Magic focus on a Hitachi only adjusts at 16 points on the screen and needs to be done in a dimly lit room. Frankly its a sales gimmick, the number 5 means one of the sensors inside the screen for the Magic focus is not connected or bad.

Go into the tech mode for convergence with the original remote (that menu is called the Decam mode) and see if convergence will adjust there. There are close to 120 points that can be adjusted there as opposed to less than twenty in the magic focus mode.

Hitachi 51S700 won't turn off


Some kind of a problem likely in the magic focus area--is the set showing a error on screen if you engage the magic focus?

One thing not to do is disconnect the sensors inside the screen as that could make things worse......

My TV is the Hitachi model 51UWX20B and tried using magic focus to line up red color. Picture looks like 3D with red off center. When using magic focus it gets to the red phase and it shows the number 5...


You need to replace the STK ICs which are Convergence ICs STK392-110 use 120s or 150s
also check the small ohm resistors around ICs . They are Big Black ICs and will have part number on them ,should be located on the Right hand side of Chassis .

Magic Focus error green 5.


Here's a link to perform a DCAM convergence on your television and reset your magic focus. Instructions for the S series are halfway down but be sure to read the whole page. Best of luck.

Hitachi tv magic focus does not work


Your problem is the convergence circuit. This is very common in CRT projection sets like yours. There are a couple of IC's that need to be changed and possibly some resistors. A good repair shop will run you $400-$500 to do the repair.

Out of focus


Rach, if it doesn`t move from green to red to blue in Magic Focus then there is a problem with the convergence IC`s and probably one or more support resisters. These components will have to be replaced, questions? ask away, BMW Rider
