Question about Zenith R56W28 56" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Adjust color convergence automaticly

We need to reset our color convergence on our Zenith R56W28 rear projection tv. according to the owners manual by going to the hd focus in the setup menu the color convergence should edjust automatically. This did not happen. I somwhat figured it out manually but the blue will not move far enough on 7 of the 9 + and i can only figure out how to move the red and blue haven't found a way to change it to green (or can't you). So my question is : Is the something that tells me remote buttons to use to do this manually and/or shy won't it adjust automatically like the book says? HELP!

I hate to tell you but if the colors are not aligning the way they used to is because the set has developed a problem know as a convergence problem,you should be able to align the colors (red,Blue)but if they are not going in is because the covergence IC's are going bad,If you are familiar with electronic service you can do some of the work yourself but sometimes still does require the help of a servicer to do the aligments from the inside,if you are not too familiar be safe and call for assistance.

I think my convergence is off. Just the green and red seem to look off. I do not know how to adjust each color. When you go into the convergence setting under the menu and it just does like an automatic...


You will need to know How to Enter the Service Menu to bring up the Convergence Pattern in order to adjust the Convergence,another thing is it depends on which chassis you have RCA had bought the right to use the name Zenith, when in fact these TVs had RCA Chassis and not Zenith Chassis
Remove the back to Tv, Make sure TV is unpluged and look to see if you have on a board Located on the right hand side
2 Big Black ICs they will have Part number on them example STK392-570 these are your convergence ICs that need to be replaced.You can exchange this board for new board at Zenith exchange moduels 1-800-632-6637
But if you have the RCA Chassis then you will have 2 bottom boards one on the Left hand side will be the Deflection board it will have the FBT flyback transfomer on it and their is 2 Ribbons that connect to the board on the right handside which is the ssb board that has your cable/AV input jacks on it.and their will be 2 boards above the 2 bottom boards if these are the boards you have then you can with Tv Off Press and Hold vol- and ch- wait untill TV comes on,release buttons and then you should be in the service menu to adjust convergence manually. R/G/B
For these chassis PTS rebuilts boards 1-800-844-7871

Zenith rear projection tv, left 1/3 of screen has color shadowing like colors are not aligning...tried adjusting with setup menu, but didn't work


Projection sets have two very common problems listed below. bb0cf99.pngYou can see some more examples and find a fix using this link on Fixya http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

The first common problem is convergence

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....
•Screen looks 3D
•Colors don't line up
•One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
•Screen is bowed or warped.
•TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.

Hi my TV is ghosting and I cannot change the blue on my convergence. It will allow me to go horizontal but not vertical to adjust. Is there a reset on the TV? Zenith IQB56W10 56 in.


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu.

Auto Convergence not working


I'm assuming you were having picture quality problems prior to pressing the auto convergence button. If not then there could be a problem in that circuit. More likely I believe is a problem on the convergence board assembly or in the pincushion circuits. Also, check your owners manual to see if there is a manual convergence adjustment you can do.
