Is the TV connected to cable? Is there a cable box? Is it connected to a satellite box? How is the signal connecting to the TV - the F connector, the red,white,yellow, red,white,,s-video or component RCA jacks? If you can see the onscreen menu then it usually indicates that the TV is working fine and the problem is with the signal into the TV.

    The next thing to try is to go into the TV's menu and make sure that the brightness and contrast are set normally. If those are set too low then you might have no video but the on-screen menu will work. If the brightness and contrast settings are normal but you get no picture at all, there is something wrong with the video processor circuits, and that must be repaired by a qualified tech familiar with projection TVs.

Vertical position does not work on remote. Magic focus on green goes half way stops then number five comes on screen. Hitachi 51inch rear projection tv


Magic focus on a Hitachi only adjusts at 16 points on the screen and needs to be done in a dimly lit room. Frankly its a sales gimmick, the number 5 means one of the sensors inside the screen for the Magic focus is not connected or bad.

Go into the tech mode for convergence with the original remote (that menu is called the Decam mode) and see if convergence will adjust there. There are close to 120 points that can be adjusted there as opposed to less than twenty in the magic focus mode.

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
  • Red/Orange looking picture

I have a hitachi 60UX58B. It went pow.


If it is totally dead, then this is likely a power supply issue. If the front panel LED comes on, but nothing else, perhaps there is a problem on the deflection board, or perhaps the convergence chips died and shut down the set.

No picture, have sound


Dude, you dont have the same problem thanks for junking up my post.

Ok, so I have replaced the SUB power assembly and the SUB Defconvergence board, picture looks decent however magic focus just blanks the screen out and cannot adjust manually does the same thing.

Is there a way to enter the service menu and initialize the magic focus functions after servicing.

It must be using the saved ROM settings, but it wont let me adjust anything convergence wise.

Thanks,

Joe

Loss of color picture


I have a blue-ish yellow ghost tint which just appeared on my 51" 51SWX20B made July 2002. Did the magic focus got a number 5 at the end. Did you get a number when you did the magic focus?

Won't turn off


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.

Horizontal hour glass picture


The convergence Ics need replaced. In Hitachi, resistors and sometimes a coil needs replaced as well. The convergence/deflection PCB is available, but, the cost of that board is higher than having a servicer come to your home and repair the unit to component level. If you are not familar with this circuit, then call a servicer. Have them replace both ICs not just one. Make sure they are repairing to component level and not replacing the board. Hope this helps.
