Zenith Projection TV PVY5265RK hourglass

I have a Zenith Projection Television. Worked just fine! Once in a while I would get a hourglass from the sides of the picture...then it would go away...now it came today and it just wont go away...
Ive read people talking about convergance or a pincushion....
Im not a TV repair person...so Im not sure if this is something that I can fix myself....any ideas???

    Its all fixed! I called a repair facilty. Turned out that something on my board was cracked. He fixed the board, retuned everything and gave it a good cleaning. He was at my house for about 3 hours, cost be around $200.00.

Tv wont turn on... light blinks yellow as if its going to power on.. and just shuts off... for my zenith dlp 52 inch tv


I had this same problem. The Zenith rep told me to unplug the TV, hold the power button down for 30 seconds, plug it back in and then turn it on. It worked and I haven't had a problem with it since. I hope this helps. Good Luck!

Sony 53 inch projection screen with hourglass picture


If you are familiar with TV repair, have electronics basic knowledge, good soldering skills and tools then check dry (cold) soldering joints at D board of this TV. Resold all lose connections there and check picture.
Still no joy then you need to replace D board.

ZENITH D52WLCD


I just found the solution on another model of Zenith TV. Hold the enter button down on the TV and the MUTE button on the remote. In approx. 5-7 seconds a screen will pop up asking if you want to reset the lamp timer. Hit the bullseye button in the middle of the arrows and it will reset. Worked perfectly.

Zenith 50" R56W36


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 ..by 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.
