Question about Zenith R56W36 56" Rear Projection Television

Zenith 50" R56W36

I recently purchased a new rear projection TV from a guy. Once I got to my apartment and hooked up the TV it worked fine. A few minutes later, I pressed the auto convergence button, and ever since then, the screen is bowed in from the top and bottom middle. I've tried shutting it down for hours and pressing the auto convergence button again, nothing works. The picture also has red, green, and blue ghost lines. I have no idea how to fix it.

Maybe on your remote press menu and find converence and use the keys to move the red first over the green then move the blue over the yellow standing back and just using the remote....should end up with white lines. and dont hit that button again once set. a tech should do this quickly and charge you minium.

Zenith R56W36 Screen rolls constantly with cable hooked to antenna input; works fine on all video inputs

Tuner or a sync problem----using the video inputs bypasses the tuner and front end of the set's signal circuits---consider using a box with audio and video outs to a rear input and bypass the problem.

Hi, you can order it here or 1-866-925-7278 be prepared they are not cheap, if you do this yourself make SURE you mark ALL of your plugs as you pull them from the old board if you put a plug in the wrong place you can destroy the new board and they will NOT take it back once you purchase it, good luck , BMW Rider
