Zenith z56dc1d dlp tv picture works for about 1 minute then starts shaking and tv shuts off

You may want to get it in a rather warm room and or remove rear cover and use a hairdryer to warm everything up inside the Cabinet--with rear cover off look to see if the fans are dirty etc and if they all come on, if a DLP especially look at the lamp itself and the fan that cools it.

I got a Zenith Z56DC1D the bulb was replaced and its clean. I have blurry picture and it seems out of alignment there is a large black stripe on bottom and the top of the picture is cut off. How do I fix...

Without seeing a photo it sounds like the picture is letterbox with top and bottom black areas---if not that it sounds like a possible issue with the optical light engine the set uses to project the image on to the screen----most of this is not customer repairable.

How to replace lamp on Z56DC1D 56 inch television

as a tip Get it done professionally It is not just a matter of popping onhe out and another in. tHThe lamp has to be set up correctly and the hours reset on screen and at the lamp site as well on many models. Many on here have done the DIY option and found they have halos around the objects on the screnn, the lamp blew in 10 mis after installation and many other problems of not being able to set the lamp hours despite it seemingly being easy from the menu.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

My zenith z56dc1d will not turn on. I start the tv but the on light flickers than turns red.

sesshomaru69, Is your tv LCD or Plasma? How old iis it? Is it still covered by Warranty? Your symptom sounds like it could be a power supply problem internal to the set. You will need to have a service tech look at it. Probably the Switch-Mode-Power-Supply has sensed a failure with some other circuit or with itself and goes into what is known as SHUTDOWN mode to save itself from becoming a catastrophic failure. Your best shot will be to have someone look at it.
Zenith has a building somewhere in Lincolnshire, Illinois but they are owned by LG (Lucky Goldstar) Korea. Most likely everything in the tv is from the Far East and assembled in Mexico, but that's just a guess!!! I'm louie12fix on fixya or lmistyrel @ Bye for now.
