Magic Focus on Hitachi Ultravision 51"
I am also having a problem with the Magic Focus on my Hitachi. We only purchased it Sept. 2003. I noticed the other day that one side (left) was all blurry and when I put the menu up I can see the words only on one side were blurry and the screen looked warped. reading all of your inquiries, I didnt see anyone say anything about only one side being out of focus or a warped screen. It was like my TV had a stroke and it affected the left side only. We had a repair man out and he was determined it was just the chips, he replaced the chips and realized it wasnt the problem. So he did something else but was vague on what he found. Hmmmmm. My husband noticed he was fooling around with the Manual Focus. So later that night when I had got home, I checked the TV myself and still noticed the warped screen. I called the repair man, unfortunately he will be on vacation for a week and wont be able to come back out til he returns. He didnt say much when I told him about the warped screen and why he didnt notice it was still having a problem. I told him from the beginning it was warped and blurry. So do these repair men (Hitachi) really know what they are doing?????? I also said to my husband maybe it was still out of focus, so we did our Magic Focus on Auto and it screwed up again. We were able to Manual focus it and got it back in focus, but realized we can't use our Auto Focus anymore (or until we figure out what is goin on) 'cause it scews up and makes it blurry. Anyways, if anyone else has a simliar problem, please let me know. Also, I am wondering if I will need a whole new Convergence kit. I was told they go for like $500-$600, plus labor of around $250-$300 to install.
