Question about Zenith R49W36 49" Rear Projection HDTV
I am not very practiced in fixing tv's, but our 49" Zenith is not converging right and I am in dire need to fix it right now 'cause a repair man just isnt fitting in the budget. When I turn the tv on it gives the effect that the image is being sucked into the center and all three lenses are off of alignment. you can see the 3 distinctive lense colors. I tried auto converge on it and it made it worse. I know it has to be the convergence chips my question is how can I eliminate certain ones as the problem, or basically how do i know which one is the culprit. I have the back off the tv and now I need to know where to go from here. Please help me ASAP
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, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.
