    I have a Hitachi 51SWX20B that is approx 10 years old. While watching it, the picture became distorted and double with the images primarily green and red and bowed at the top and bottom. There was also a burning smell that stopped. The sound is normal.

Burning smell usually signals that a part burned. This is a major malfunction, the power source of the tv was literally fried. Replacing it will be quite expensive - around $250 - and definitely a job for a pro - who know what else was damaged in there, the tv must be tested by someone who knows this very well.

I used Hitachi TV convergence repair kit to fix tv


Check the Components received are compatible with manufacturers numbers or if they are generic the voltage,ohmage,ampage and resistance must be almost the same.

Using a multimeter take out and test each individual components.They could have sent you faulty parts.

Ensure you follow the instructions very carefully when soldering them onto the board.

Hope this helps you

The convergence going bad again on my Hitachi 51swx20b


Sounds like loose solder on the chips. Either that or they are failing. You can save money next time by doing it yourself with a kit from www.TvRepairKits.com
