Question about Hitachi 51S500 51" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Center of my T.V. is black.

I have an Hatachi 51inch rear projection HDtv. Recently my t.v. screen has started showing a black box in the center of the screen. It takes up about 3/4 of the entire screen. If I use the t.v. remote and click on any button the black box goes away. However it returns within 15 seconds. It does not do this when my ps2 is hooked up. Nor does this happen when i am watching a movie on the DVD player. Does any one know waht the problem might be?

Picture Bowed towards the center

It is a convergence problem, probably one of the convergence ICs has blown and must be replaced. Call the number in the last pages of your user manual to get repair service in your area.
