use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.

Sounds like a convergence promblem.

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

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.

The problem is called green geometry.There is nothing wrong w/the green pix tube.It is critical to get the green geometry

accurate because the red and blue convergence overlays on

the green.If you have more than an alignment issue,that will need

repair before adjustments are attempted.

Can you find out what Led is not on or which comes up and goes out? Most of these sets have convergence problems. Or Power Regulators.

Excellent visual acuity technique!! I try to teach that procedure.

IC F6629B is probably shorted and at least one other part will

be open, possibly a zener diode,a fuse,a resistor or combo.

The service diagram would help.Be sure to use OEM first quality

parts.Let me know if you need more help.

I had this same problem and unplugged the TV from the a power strip and plugged it directly into the wall... problem solved.

I read elsewhere that this is called a "ground loop."

Most likely the power supply. In most models, if the lamp goes out you will still get sound. However, the power supply is not a single piece swap. I would suggest getting a voltmeter, and check the voltage where the power cord meets the power supply. Then follow the circuit pathways, checking after each component, until you find a break in power. You are getting power to that light, so some power is getting through. However, the light works on much less voltage than the rest of the television, so probably there is a capacitor or transformer that's gone out.

Check your powercord. Unplug it overnight, then plug the power cord back in the morning. If that doesnt help, it means that something is going on with your set. Sometimes your power cord has shorted out and needs to be replaced. Generally you can find them under $100 depending upon your set...

Sounds like the blue convergence circuit still not working.

Assuming both IC's are good, look for open soldered-in pico fuse.

Once bowing problem is solved,then convergence should adjust ok.
