My hitachi 55fx20b has a shift in color. red, blue
It sounds like what is called a "convergence" problem; 3d looking with colors out of place etc.
Most of these sets use two of the STK-392-150 chips for this (see photo) and you can look inside to see which are in your set.
A pair of the chips on EBAY sells for about 13 dollars and the only other parts usually involved may be a resistor damaged when the chips failed----this is the exception rather than the norm.
If you or someone you know can solder, etc I can tell you the best way to get at the parts and everything you will need to do the repair; for me----I have repaired over 1,000 sets with this kind of problem.
I am attaching photo of typical convergence problem and what one of the STK chips looks like (chip is 2 1/2 wide/ 1 1/2 tall with 18 pins).
If the photos and this information told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

My hitachi tv keep turning off after 5 minuted of
I just got done putting my panasonic 50 projection back together. There is a thermal cut off relay on top of your bulb box, can normally be seen after removing the back of the tv. With the tv unplugged make sure the area around this relay is clean of dust. If the simple fix dosn't work make sure your cooling fan is coming on with the tv.

Low voltage power supply problem
Hi, I agree that the regulator IC is probably toast but you`ll need a service manual to figure the rest because none of the leds are on which means NONE of the secondary supplies are running, check the chemical fuses and I`m sure some will be open. you can go to encompass parts on the internet to order the sm, trust me you`ll fix it a lot faster, gl, video-tek

Hitachi rear proj tv Channel Manager says " This Function is not available". How do I do a channel rescan?
First make sure that the current Source or Input is set to TV. This is usually the only reason for the error message you see. To select the source, look for a Source or Input button on the original remote. If you have an universal remote with a button with the Source/Input label, you may need to try alternative codes to make the button work. (Power and channel controls will often match across multiple codes for the TV manufacturer.) Alternatively, check if there is a Source/Input button on the TV or a section of the menu system with the function. Once you set this source, try again.
Note: there was a period when manufacturers sold some TVs without tuners. They were labeled HD-ready sets. These can't do a channel scan and do not have an RF antenna jack on the set.
I hope this helps. Please add a comment with the model number of your Hitachi TV for more information on setting the source on your set.
