Converge off a little and screen has green tint

I have a Zenith tv. I think it is a 52 inch. The tv has a green tint, but it shows some colors. Also the converge is off. It sits slightly to the right bottom. I don't know anything about tv's. What does this mean and how can I fix it? Thanks so much!

If you have the remote, go to the setup screen and move the picture. Converge has nothing to do with where the picture sits but, where the red, blue & green dots land. All you should see are pure white dots. There should be absolutely NO color ghost anywhere on the screen. If so, you need a bar / dot generator to set the convergence to center the dots.

How can you tell if the bulb is burned out on a RCA 52 inch projection


If you are missing one of the colors but still have an image (red, green or blue). Real simple, turn on the TV and see if there are any colors missing from those. Most rear projections have a color bar you can put up or a converge feature which is used for aligning the colors for a clear picture.

Someone from my townhouse put his 52 inch zenith to be toossed out. i brought it in the house-plugged it in but got no pic or sound. the little green light blinks on and off but thats it. is this fixable...


usually that means the bulb for the projector is out there usually around 100 dollars! it could also mean the color board is out. so open it up look for the bulb if it looks blown then just buy the bulb and you got a nice tv if not junk it!

Tv out of foucs


These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

Screen has green tint, it is an LCD 42 inch


First of all, that is not an LCD tv. It is DLP, which is a common mistake because the picture is very similar. DLP tv's use a high-power lamp that reflects light off of thousands of tiny mirrors into a spinning color wheel which gives the reflections color. Each little mirror is one pixel, which can be any color depending on the hole that it goes through on the color wheel. The color wheel may be spinning slower than normal, which could make all of the light go through the green filter on the color wheel, and give your screen a green tint. Have a trusted mechanic take your tv apart and dust the inside. If that doesn't fix it, you may need a new color wheel or bearings for it (that help it spin). You should not pay more than $200 for a bearing replacement on this tv.

Thanks for asking.

Zenith Model SY2551S 1996 27" - Green Tint


The core problem with the green tint is the aging of the picture tube, and can be compensated a bit by using either the green drive control usually located on a printed circuit board on the neck of the picture tube or on the main chassis. There will be 3 main controls which will adjust the red and blue as well. If these controls are not present then you will need to get into the service menu and adjust it from there. Don't adjust anything else as you can make the set much worse. Also remember that in order to make these internal adjustments while watching a black and white picture (turn the color all the way down) you will have your hands and arms near live circuits that could shock you and cause injury to yourself as well as break parts inside the set when you pull back after being zapped (voice of experience here) Of course if you can do all this by the service menu then you won't even have to remove the back of the TV.

Orange projection lamp on. Picture is a bluish green, no true white.


If you are in warranty contact Lg electronics since they own Zenith. I was having similar difficulties and they are sending me a replacement tv even though I am out of warranty by 3 years.

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
