    I was having a convergence problem the colors in the corner would not line up. Then it started to lose the light of the pictrue getting darker and darker until one day i tried to turn the TV on and no picture at all. The red light comes on in front of the set and i hear a click but no picture. Do you think i have more than one problem?

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

When using majic focus the blue doesnt focus right


Simple answer for this question:

Magic focus is for Convergence and attempts to adjust at about 16 points on the screen---if it does not help the two convergence chips this set uses need to be replaced---small chance if either chip shorted you may have a bad resistor near them also.

See attached photos of convergence problems --no two look the same but you will now know if your problem.

I have replaced chips in hundreds of these Hitachi sets--about the only real issue the sets have--life span on the chips is 5-7 years.

If you can solder and are moderately handy this can be a do it yourself repair--Parts (see photo of chips) cost will be under 25 dollars and the fix for a first time person about one hour.

Happy to help and assist you if you decide to fix it yourself.

Chips look like these and may have the stk-392-150 number on them, a stronger version of the one seen in the photo

Press the Majic Focus button on the front. If that doesn't fix it then the convergence ICs may be bad.

Majic focus lines very broad


Undue the calibration! It sounds like the dynamic contrast is up too high.

Double picture on left side with red projector on Hitachi 55UX58B


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. This is called convergence.

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,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link 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 - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Majic focus code gave me a five


Barb, thats a code for convergence error, the convergence circuit has failed, the IC`s will have to be replaced and may have 1 or 2 resistors burnt, this is not a job for a "layperson", board has to be removed, IC`s and possibly resistors un-soldered , removed and new ones re-soldered in, requires accurate voltmeter, soldering equipment and the ability to solder very small joints, I`d advise you to call a tv tech for this one, hope this helped, BMW Rider
