How to fix a Hitachi Projection 46F500 auto focus

by raynjoeyd / May 26, 2008 8:22 AM PDT

Hi, we have a 46 inch Hitachi Projection color TV model 46F500 for about 5 years now and had not had a problem with it until now. We have major out of alignment problems so the screen looks like a double or triple image. We used the auto Magic Focus, and the bars that tell you how far it is going along only goes halfway. That did not work... When we went to manually use the auto focus, it will not work. Do you have any other suggestions that we can try ourselves before calling a repairman? THANKS! ~J in WI
