Nope. You have a vertical problem. Please post the model number from the back of the set and I'll provide you with the part numbers and cost. I can also give you more details on what to change and how.

Thanks,
Dan

    The Ic you need is part number 221-992 and is available for around $8 from tritronicsinc.com. If you look on the board for the designation IC2100, that will be the one,.

    You will need to know how to solder. Look for the similar part inside the set. It should be attached to a heatsink. Unsolder the pins and remove the old IC. Replace it with the new one. Solder the pins and give 'er a try.



    Keep me posted.



    Dan



    Please note that the set should be off and unplugged. Also, there are high voltages floating around inside even when unplugged, so be careful.

I have a 1994 zenith big screen the picture is showing really dar


It could be that the picture tubes have gone down on emission, there is a prcedure that can be tried to bring up the overall brightness but it is just possible that you will loose some picture quality. If it's a 1994 projo tv i am thinking of the three crt system, a gray scale alignment would probably correct the dark condition in your picture, again depending on how far gone is the emission in your picture tubes, if your projo tv is the dlp system, the bad news is that you could be needing some light engine repair. The color adjustment is possible with the availability of a service manual or in the case of the dlp system, light engine repairs or replacement are available from some on line stores.

I'm trying to improve the picture- seems to be TOO DARK- tv is 10 yr old ser3 935351541- ihave tried color adj etc


Rca Screen Control These sets have screen control adjustment usually located behind the speaker grill(pops off -velcro or press tabs) and convergence front board. There are 6 contols on a black molded assembly about 31/2"x21/2" square. adjust only the top controls marked "Screen R G B" the bottom ones are focus
Method:
-turn on set and let warm up for 30 min at least
-switch tv to blank unused video input channel
-adjust each control in turn until you see the picture glow (with the corresponding color) and slightly back off the control - repeat for each color - this will increase screen brightness and ballance your color
Hope this helped.

Screen fades to blue.


The Blue SCREEN setting is too high. These adjustments are located inside the TV behind the front panel. There are two screws behind covers and then a wooden panel to remove to access the adjustments. The leftmost set are for BLUE, the middle are GREEN, and the right are RED. The top row are FOCUS and the bottom are SCREEN. Focus will focus/unfocus the tube and Screen will adjust the power of that tube (there are 3 tubes, one for each color). If Screen is adjusted too high, horizontal lines will appear (my TV had red lines, but I played around with the knobs and saw that it could happen on any of the colors). Additionally, if SCREEN is set even higher than that, the tube could go so high that it turns the whole screen that color (in your case, blue). If this happens the TV will shut down, probably due to either overheating or overvolting. To fix this issue, turn the appropriate SCREEN dial down until the lines go away. In your case, you want to turn the lower left dial down. Don't turn it too far down, if you turn it more than necessary the TV can give you an AKB error (noted by the STANDBY light flashing a sequence of 5 blinks).

We have a 25 year old zenith console, pretty old.. but still functional.. we noticed that the tv turns blank to a green screen... no picture just green color shown on the screen, then it will go back to...


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, your described problem indicates that one of 3 color drive transistors (for the green) has developed either a cold solder (most likely) or an intermittent internal fault (leak). These transistors (or in some cases a single power pack module/IC) are normally found on a small squarish PCB (printed circuit board) at the very rear of the picture tube (CRT). At times, the green blank screen would also have diagonal fine lines or would appear to be overly bright.

In some rare instances, it could be the chroma section (least likely) or in worst case scenario the CRT (cathode ray tube) itself that is faulty (hope not).

Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a 1985 Zenith Space Command Color TV. It has developed thin white lines at the top of the viewing screen. The rest of the screen is clear. Is it something small or am I looking at a new picture...


The picture tube is fine.
Those whites lines at the top of the screen are caused by a dry or leaky capacitor(s) nearby the vertical amplifier IC.
Let me know if you require further assistance.
