Question about Zenith R49W36 49" Rear Projection HDTV

Auto Convergence not working

My problem is that my TV was working properly until I tried to use the auto convergence button. Since then, the picture looks basically like a 3-d picture. The picture is concaved at the top and bottom of the screen and the colors are not matching resulting in double vision images, especially on the outside of the screen. I have been advised to unplug the TV and sometimes it will reset itself. This resulted in no improvement. Are there any other suggestions out there that I can try to correct this problem. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated.

I'm assuming you were having picture quality problems prior to pressing the auto convergence button. If not then there could be a problem in that circuit. More likely I believe is a problem on the convergence board assembly or in the pincushion circuits. Also, check your owners manual to see if there is a manual convergence adjustment you can do.

Tv out of foucs

These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

How do i start auto convergence

Press your MENU button on the remote. Move to SETUP and press OK. Then choose Convergence. You should wait until your TV has been on for at least 1 hour before you run the auto convergence. Once the auto convergence has run, you can do your own fine tuning. There will be separate adjustments for Red convergence and Blue convergence. You will use the arrow keys to line up two sets of lines. The instructions will show up on the screen. Good luck, and I hope this takes care of your issue.

3d looking screen

If the auto convergence didnt adjust the picture back to normal, you will need a new convergence power supply board.
