Question about Hitachi 61SWX10B 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

How can I fix the convergence on a hitachi 61swx10b? I had a similar Issue with a sony rear projection, and I simply put in a code with the remote and brought up a grid to adjust the convergence. Is there a way to do this with this tv? If it does turn out to be the convergence ICs, where could I get them to replace them myself?

Hi, i'm a technician in florida.
The cost for me to referb a deflection assy is
289.50 plus tax.
i'll give you a nice tip...sometimes the convergence circuit temps to load the power supply...try to fix the convergence circuit first...then see if that fixed it.

Maybe converrgance

If the magic focus doesnt correct the issue you will need to install the Convergence repair kit for your model. You should be able to get one at the following link. Leave them a email or call if you dont see your model as they add new kits everyday or two.

The 3 color guns seem to be out of alignment and the magic focus button doesn't fix it. Any suggestions?

The Convergence Circuit has failed. Replacing the two Convergence IC's and possibly one or two low ohm value resisters should fix the problem. I do recommend a professional to do the job since there may be adjustments in the factory mode needed after the repair to align it properly.
I hope this helps,

My color is off real green you do not see colors like purple and i see blue spots tv hitachi model 61swx10b v1k004865


Your TV has a convergence problem. Here are some of the most common symptoms.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.

Try to adjust the convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.

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, and the Hitachi board number is JT22056. Good Luck
