Question about Zenith R57W46 57" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

Zenith inteq 60'' picture adjustment

The picture on the tv is zoomed in, and blurry in the corners. i don't have the original remote control, and a universal one is unable to work with it. is there something that can be done to adjust the zoom? its also tilted slightly on an angle. sounds like it could be a big issue?

its actually a 60 inch. i can get the exact serial number if this problem sounds to difficult to make clarity

I would check with LG/Zenith on this, there was a update sent out to add a collection cup in case this would happen. If leaked on the board it would be to costly on repair with the board is still available.

SOURCE: how do you fix shadowing on a zenith inteq

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton 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.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the button. If it fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

I have 60 inch zenith inteq projection TV no picture or sound it powers up fine took it to a repair shop tech guy said that a whole board need to be replaced but the board is a discontinued item said it...


May be you went to the wrong place, find another repair shop where they work that brand and type of tv. Doubtless, some parts are discontinued, but they will take parts of another equipment that are dismantled. Good luck.

Blurry tv


there is a focus control in the front of the set behind the front grill there is a door in the middle attached by screws take this off and it should be right behind it. There are six controls on a little box one row says focus and the other says screen don't adjust the screen controls. In some cases these are in the back of the set.

Zoom control


Use the menu key on the set it has a size selection in the menu set it on widescreen or 16:9 I suggest buying a new original remote as even a new RCA universal remote may not have the ZOOM or aspect control on them.

Zenith E44W46LCD 44 in. Rear Projection (Wont Turn on)


I bought an open box unit at Best Buy, it had no remote or manual. Go to http://www.zenithservice.com/, click on owner's manuals, answer the 4 questions using drop down menus and then you can download an owner's manual and save it to your computer/burn it to a CD/print it out. If you choose to print it out, beware, the manual is 60 pages. One of the 4 questions they ask is "Product", choose Projection TV, not LCD TV. The 4th question is "Model Number", mine is E44W46LCD, is guess everyone's here is the same, duh.
For the remote, I looked in the phone book for an authorized Zenith TV repair company. I called them and gave the model number and paid over the phone. I had the remote shipped to my home address. The total including tax and shipping was $50. The remote they sent is a large Zenith mulit-function #6710v00102k. I don't know if that is the remote that would have came with the TV, it worked without having to program it first. It can control TV/VCR/Cable/DVD/Sat. I t has controls for 6 inputs, SAP, mute, Surf, Video, Picture in Picture, Ratio (16:9, 4:3, Zoom, etc), CC, Freeze, Menu, and controls for DVD and VCR (rewind, play, etc). If you can't find a place in your area to get the remote, Email me at gregg@hillscabinet.com and I'll look up where I got mine from. It came from Palm Desert, CA.
I don't know about your TV not coming on, is it plugged in? If it is, that's about all I've got. Gregg

Your best bet is to get a Zenith universal remote control.
