The TV, keeps turning on & off by itself.. I can hear a clicking inside.. Kind of sounds like 2 wires are hitting, so I took off the back, & had a look.. It kept doing it.. I tried to trace the sound.. Sounded like it cam off of the electronic board that attatches to the end of the tube.. But no 2 wires were touching each other..
The sound is like, if you touck +/- speaker wires together.. just a zap,or a click then the sound doesn't come out..
Any easy solutions?

Re: TV turns on & off by itself
You can check the board where the components are mounted and resolder any that look bad. a brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet.
In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer.
all can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace
If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced.

Hi, TV needs lamp replacement as existing lamp got weak or has been reached to end of its working life, please note that lamp is not dead or broken so that is why lamp lit is not lit at tv front. Hope these info will help you. Thanks.
Are you tightening the grill to the point that it is pulling itself up to touch the fan or is it pulling something down to touch the fan?
I would take the grill off and with the fan running, pull and push on the points that hold the grill in place and see if that action causes the fan to click.
If it does, you need to trouble shoot from there.
If not, an exorcisim might be in order.

I had the same problem with my tv, same make and model. I first continuously turn on and off my tv manually until I could get some kind of picture. This procedure took maybe five minutes. I was able to get a fine picture and sound, as if it was brand new! Other things to keep in mind, try to eliminate dust build up as much as possible.. Hope this helps out...
hello..i think you have very big problems inside on you're TV you need a Electronics Technician to see inside the real problem.my tips is located in Power Supply Regulator..Can i know what kind TV Model???thanks
I need to know how long do you have the tv?In the other word,approx. how many hours you have put into it? Secondly,did you wall mounted the tv or setting it close the the area which there is not much room for the back of your tv to breath? solutiondoct
First of all, forget about the remote and see if the TV functions normally using the buttons on the front of the set itself. If the TV will not power on with the power button on the set itself, then something is wrong inside the TV. If the set works fine from the front buttons but no longer responds to that remote, then the remote has either gone bad or was accidently set to a different brand. In this case, look for the original book that came with the remote (or TV if it is the original remote) and follow the instructions for setting the remote back to Zenith. Try that and post your results here.
I have been dealing with the same problem with the identical set. I'm pretty handy so rather than junk the set, I took off the rear panel and stuck a small fan in the back to cool down the inside of the cabinet. I love the picture on this TV so I'm doing all I can to save it. Sometimes it doesn't turn on so I have now taken off the front panel (speaker cover) and also the front access panel. I carefully reach inside and have to wrap on the part (with a long wooden spoon) that I hear clicking from when I hit the power button. I used to just give the cabinet a swift kick and it usually would turn on, sometimes after several kicks. Kick it, then hit the power button. So whatever the problem(s), it's not keeping me from watching a gerat picture. I have a feeling that if I took my air compressor and blew out all of the dust from all over the components, it'd probably solve the problem of it shutting itself off after an hour or so. Why it doesn't always turn on is anyone's guess, but a good tap or two with my wooden spoon here and there and it turns on eventually.
