20 Most Recent Hitachi 53UWX10B 53" Rear Projection Television Questions & Answers

You need to have a set top box.

By law, as of March 1, 2007, almost all televisions should include a built-in tuner (called HDTV, digital, or ATSC tuners) that can receive high-definition programs over the air by simply connecting an antenna. Your HDTV doesn't have such a tuner, you'll need to connect an external tuner (or cable or satellite box) to watch high-definition programming. External over-the-air HDTV tuners currently cost at least $150.

you can unscrew the large back plastic section to make the tv a bit narrower...but be careful as this is the piece the mirror is mounted to on the other side...just make sure you have someone help you do it.

If the picture is 3d looking in some way----it is a convergence problem; many of these sets have "magic focus" and if it will not correct the problem the two convergence chips need to be replaced---this model should use either STK-392-110 OR -150 CHIPS.

This can be a do it yourself repair if you have some skill and total parts cost on Ebay would be under 25 dollars.

Let me know your skill level here and I will instruct you how to do the fix.

based on model listed here visit the Hitachi site or Google the model number with "manual" to locate a owner manual for this set.

On that model the conv IC is usually not the solution. I believe its the blown capacitor problem with is an easy fix. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com for a repair kit.

Sounds like the convergence has failed which is a common problem with rear projection TV sets. This video has more details on this and info on how to fix it,

Hitachi 53UWX10B... | Answered on Apr 13, 2012

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
