Accessing Service menu to fix convergence

How far off are the colors misaligned such that you need to enter the service mode to fox them? If one or more of your colors has taken a dramatic shift in position, especially on any edge, then do not attempt to correct through the menu. If one of your convergence IC's has failed then the colors will not align on the screen. If you try to correct this in the menu, you will only be screwing up all the settings and making the set worse. When the IC is replaced with a new one your colors will still be way off, not because the new IC is not working, but because now the menu settings are too far off. I have been to many houses and spent 45 minutes replacing a burned out convergence IC followed by more than an hour realigning everything the customer messed up.

The 3 colors are not ligned up and the picture is out of focus. We tried the flash focus and that did not work. we tried the convergence but are unsure on how to use it.

I have a zenith pvr5263dt projection television.when I turn it on the color is out of alignment, I go to the menu and in one section of setup cross hairs come up with the colors misaligned but it does not...

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.

Alighnment off

The alignment you need to do to realign your TV is called "setting the convergence". All projection TV's have 3 color guns (one red, one blue and one green). When you move a TV or josstle it, these guns can get misaligned and need realignment. This is definitely something an average user can do (you don't need a TV repair man to do it for you). It is a very simple procedure (most TV's have an option in the menu to do this, just look for convergence adjustment). What you want to do is use the remote to get all 3 colors to overlap completely (you can only move one color at a time). Some TV's have squares on the screen that you must align, others have plus signs. If you can't find it in the menu on your TV or if you can't figure it out on your own, you can look for a manual at Hitachi's website that will walk you throught the process for your TV.
