Go to the panel (on the tv set), hit magic focus on there....then hold power button for several seconds long. It should go off and fix your problem.

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......

Screen will not turn off

Model does not sound like Hitachi but if it is have you unplugged the set? The magic focus is a auto convergence circuit in the Hitachi sets.

Hitachi 43fwx20b Convergence Problems

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.
Your TV may have one or more of the following symptoms....
  • Dull looking picture
  • White looking picture
  • Halos around objects

Magic focus grid not straight.

i'm no expert by any means; but I wonder if it could be as simple as the reflective screening on the inside comming loose. I have a 65" and I took it apart to clean it. The reflective screening looked to me like it could be a weak point. Just a thought.

Power down malfunction

Before doing anything try upgrading the software first and see if that cures the problem. Call 1-800-HITACHI to get the latest version sent to you and then just follow the instructions. There is a port on the back of that unit where you will insert the MMC or SD card they send you and the update commands are available in the customer menu...
Good Luck!

Dark Blue Screen

You might've done this already, but first I would try the "Magic Focus" The button can be found all the way to the left of the buttons panel on the tv itself. If that has no effect, try playing around with the settings within the tv. Click menu on the remote and see what happens when you try settings like color, balance, and contrast. Report back.
