SOURCE: rear projection tv picture is horrible!

You need to reset the convergence. That should fix it if nothing is seriously wrong.

You have a problem MOST LIKLY!!, that happens to almost if, not to all projection tube sets ever made. Its the old bad convergence IC falure. It's not something you can do unless you have had exstensive electronic training and soldering skills. There are no user replaceable parts inside of this set so please call out a pro to repalce the convergence IC for yop! A repair such as this should cost around 250 to 400 bucks, depending where you live..Good Luck

SOURCE: I have a zenith pvr5263dt

This is a convergence problem and is either bad connections at the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Please let me know if you wish to do this and I'll provide more detailed instructions.

It probably needs the convergence circuit repaired by a qualified technician.

Factory setting will not cure a convergence problem---in customer menu look for convergence and see if it will adjust---if not and looks 3d etc parts have to be replaced and set adjusted.

There are kits for this available on the internet by brand and model number.

May or may not be a do it yourself repair depending on what skills you have.

My zenith big screen tv is out of focus and we cant find any master focus control. How do we fix the focus?


It is unusual for a rear projection to be out of focus since the projectors are fixed. But, it is common for the projectors to be out of alignment, in which case the picture will look like a bad 3D movie of yesteryear.

Go to the setup options / menu, look for the ALIGN option, follow instructions on screen.

My tv is blurry, showing green and red waves...zenith d61w25


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

Blurry tv


there is a focus control in the front of the set behind the front grill there is a door in the middle attached by screws take this off and it should be right behind it. There are six controls on a little box one row says focus and the other says screen don't adjust the screen controls. In some cases these are in the back of the set.

Picture is blurry


it sounds like the focus block or flyback is bad.sometimes you can put nail polish on the adjustments controls to make it stay.usually they are marked from the factory with white marks check and see if they are aligned.but be sure somebody with tech-skills help you.the flyback usually has a screen & focus control.(the big red wire to the tubes or block)
