I have a zenith R56W36. Convergence is bad. I replaced the 2 convergence ic's. I still have bad convergence. Is there a cap or two that maybe the culprit?

Make sure both convergence ICs getting +26V and -26V supplies and if these volts are not available, check in power supply for fuses that might open/ blew off due to old bad ICs.
Hope this info will help you.

Zenith tv turns itself off after convergence IC were replaced

It will be good to check once again on the work that was done as there is a possibility that the pins are bridged with solder when the rework was done.
So if you are able to use a magnification glass to inspecct it will be good and if so there is also a possibility that the IC was damaged.
Finally int he first place the identification of the fault of the convergence IC must be established with your test other wise a board replacement might confirm.

R56w36 convergence problem. color misaligned. Ghosts.

Dear Sir:

Thank you for contacting fixya.

Please follow the steps below.

green is fixed so you have to move red and blue to green.
by using the remote you may find a simple converge function and open this and using arrow keys move the blue or red first to center of screen, repeat for other color you should see the lines moving toward a a white center point.

if the lines do not move with remote try manual on the set. if still no movement you have a problem on the convergence board and need a tech to fix.

A service manual will explain complex convergence to the detail .
but this might take hours to get it right.

Please feel free to get back to me If you need any further assistance.

We moved the TV and it now has color shadows, blue,red and yellwow. It looks llike 3D. In the past I did auto convergance and it fixed itself. This time it will not adjust itself. is this something I can...

You need to Change out the Convergence ICs they are Big Black ICs and will have the part number on them STK392-570s I think is what they use in this model.
Mats Electronics has ICs 1-800-628-1118
You can ship the Convergence board to PTS and let them rebuilt the board 1-800-844-7871
Zenith Exchange Moduels 1-800-632-6637
If you plan on Fixing this ,then you also need to check the Low ohm resisotrs 1ohm and Capaciotrs 1000uf 35v near the STK ICs

yes the convergence needs to be repaired. You can get a kit for your model which includes both convergence ICs and all the feed resistors . the kit also includes free instructions so you can do the repair yourself. Heres the link to the proper repair kit for your model.

If the resistor doesnt read its open and needs replacing. I have no idea on what your origional symptoms were. If it was convergence just the large feed resistors need checking.

If you replaced the convergence ICs did you check the convergence resistors as well, as often the old ICs will take out a few resistors in the Convergence feed circuits or at least increase their values and that can give those symptoms youre describing after new ICs are instaleed.
