Blurry text on 27-inch Zenith "Sentry 2"

Just got a used Zenith off craigslist. Although the front panel is damaged (must use remote to turn off and on), the image looks fine ... EXCEPT ... any text from DirecTV (info screens, TV guide, etc.) is awfully blurry. Is there some way to get that into focus? Is it a DirecTV problem or a TV problem? Like I said, the image looks fine. Text from a TV screen looks OK.

    I have the same problem with an older Zenith (Z25X225) - blurry text on Directv menu. Otherwise seems fine.

    Money is tight these days - if I can make the TV last a little longer it would be great.

    How do I adjust the convergence?

I have had this problem before and restarting the reciever fixed it. Just push the red button under the front panel of your reciever, or unplug the reciever for a minute or so.

The dark rectangle appears because you have the closed captions on and set to TEXT. Closed captions set to CC1 puts the words on the screen and TEXT puts a black box on the screen. Go into the menu, navigate to the page with closed captions and set your captions to OFF.

I HAVE A 15 YEAR OLD ZENITH 27 INCH TELEVISION (MODEL- SE 2719P). THE ONLY WAY TO TURN IT ON IS WITH THE REMOTE. AFTER THE POWER WENT OUT FOR 20 SECONDS, I TRIED TO TURN THE TV BACK ON & NOTHING...


Yes it is definitely time for a new tv. If you live near a populated area just go on your local craigslist and you can get great used televisions for quite cheap. I have seen nice 36" tv's sell for 50$ and less.
Thank you and good luck,
Lee

You will need a Zenith remote with a menu button
There should be a "hidden" menu. Before you access it, I want to warn you, do NOT change any values of anything you don't understand what it is or does. You can PERMANENTLY DAMAGE YOUR TV. Also, write down the original values of anything you change before changing it!!!!!
If you still want to proceed(at your own risk), here ya go.
1. Press and hold the menu button until
the menu comes up on screen and then
times out (5 - 10 seconds)
2. Immediately press 9, 8, 7, 6, Enter.
3. The set should now be in the service menu
mode. To access most of the features
selection 00 needs to be toggled from 0 to 1
4. After your adjustments 00 needs to be
toggled from 1 to 0
5.Feature 16 unlocks the auto-program (change to 0)

this answer has given also to some one had the same problem.
"On your remote should be a button called TV caption or text. Turn off the closed caption as someone hit it and turned it on by accident. If its not on your remote, then it is in the menu." Good Luck
