The 3 color guns seem to be out of alignment and the magic focus button doesn't fix it. Any suggestions?


The Convergence Circuit has failed. Replacing the two Convergence IC's and possibly one or two low ohm value resisters should fix the problem. I do recommend a professional to do the job since there may be adjustments in the factory mode needed after the repair to align it properly.
I hope this helps,

I have a convergence and audio problem


You will need to replace the convergence output IC's both are STK392-110's. They are located at the right side of the chassis with the back off. The sound problem is the surround board and is a common issues with those models of Hitachis. The board sometimes has to be pulled and sent away for rebuilding as they are not commonly in stock.

Hitachi 61swx10B digital rear project


Yes it certainly sounds like you have the old convergence outpuyt IC's that have gone bad in this TV set. If you have the soldering skills, and know how to work on printed circuit boards, you can repolace both of the STK convergence IC's. If you do not, you can get the complete convergence board at http://www.ptscorp.com, and the Hitachi board number is JT22056. Good Luck
