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!

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.

My projection tv lost its blue tint


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Usually this happens when the Light Engine has gone bad, and I should say this is a common issue with Projection TVs. There are three tubes/mini LCDs inside your TV- green/yellow, blue and red. When the set heats up over time of usage the screens tend to break resulting in leaking color everywhere. The cost to get this fixed by a professional should be around $300 depending on the parts that needs to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

Mitsubishi - cannot converge 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,Panasonic2_bing.gif,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...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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

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.

Hitachi 52 projection tv


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.
