Question about Zenith R49W36 49" Rear Projection HDTV
On screen converge will not converge the red cross hair.
Advnced converge screen will not converge mostly right angles. The red
lines are deformed and will not adjust (move). Picture looks about like that when viewing too - left side of screen looks registered but the right side is all all doubled in the blue and the red.
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.
