Without seeing a photo it sounds like the picture is letterbox with top and bottom black areas---if not that it sounds like a possible issue with the optical light engine the set uses to project the image on to the screen----most of this is not customer repairable.

    thank for the reply. No the picture just apperes as if it was moved up to where it vuts the top off and the botom is left black. on an old tv I would aligne the frame down and then pull focus, but I don't know how to do this on this TV because it is out of focus so I cant see where the adjustments could be made on the menue screen. I'd love to send you a photo of the simpthome, but dont know where or how to do that on this sight? going to try to do so. thanks again for your help. It is highly appretiated.

SOURCE: my zenith z56dc1d will not turn on. I start the tv

sesshomaru69, Is your tv LCD or Plasma? How old iis it? Is it still covered by Warranty? Your symptom sounds like it could be a power supply problem internal to the set. You will need to have a service tech look at it. Probably the Switch-Mode-Power-Supply has sensed a failure with some other circuit or with itself and goes into what is known as SHUTDOWN mode to save itself from becoming a catastrophic failure. Your best shot will be to have someone look at it.
Zenith has a building somewhere in Lincolnshire, Illinois but they are owned by LG (Lucky Goldstar) Korea. Most likely everything in the tv is from the Far East and assembled in Mexico, but that's just a guess!!! I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ aol.com Bye for now.

It sounds like the convergence drive circuit has gone bad. When that circuit goes the red, blue and green don't line up properly. Have a repair shop check it out. While they are in there have the shop clean the lenses and mirror.

Humming noise tv makes


The hum comes from a bad 60 cycle bleed into the audio circuit usually from a bad capacitor or other failed component. It will need to go to a television shop for service, but I would recommend replacement. $500 and you have a new TV verses $400 and you still have the same old worn out unit. The other cause could be you have the audio and video cables reversed on a video input.

How to replace lamp on Z56DC1D 56 inch television


as a tip Get it done professionally It is not just a matter of popping onhe out and another in. tHThe lamp has to be set up correctly and the hours reset on screen and at the lamp site as well on many models. Many on here have done the DIY option and found they have halos around the objects on the screnn, the lamp blew in 10 mis after installation and many other problems of not being able to set the lamp hours despite it seemingly being easy from the menu.

Zenith picture problems


Your TV is showing signs of age. It's displaying something called "vertical foldover" which is due to capacitors in the set's vertical output section that need to be replaced. These failed parts can stress the vertical output integrated circuit, and if that goes bad your picture will collapse to a thin horizontal line. The capacitors themselves (usually 3 or 4 need to be replaced) are pretty cheap. A TV shop in your area (if there are any still around!) could fix it and the repair should be under $100.

By moving those rings on the tube's neck (which is actually the back) you have messed up the set's convergence. Those rings are magnets which adjust the electron beams in the tube so the red, green and blue images line up correctly on the tube face. The rings are often marked with a stripe after adjustment to show how they were lined up. Look carefully at them and see if there are any marks you can go by to reset them. To properly converge the set some equipment is needed to generate the adjustment test pattern. Again, a shop could do it for you.

All things considered, at this point you might seriously consider replacing the set. Not because the troubles aren't fixable, but because other parts can start failing because of age, and by now your picture tube is on borrowed time as well.
