Question about Zenith B36A24Z 36" TV

2 Answers

Powering On You must hold the power button down for several minutes before the TV will power on. Once it does come on the screen will go in several times on both sides toward the center until the TV warms up. After that it will do the same thing every now and then. Some times it will click off a few minutes after coming on. Does it have a picture tude and could it be going out? What do I need to do to correct the problem or is it a lost cause?

Pix tube has nothing to do with set powering on or off. Bad advise! If sides are sucking in it is a horizontal power problem and power supply must be checked by professional. Stop looking for a "broken wire etc"

You'll need a new picture tube. It is dieing out, and it likely about to die for good.

Unplugged it. After looking for a new tv online I decided to try getting it to work. So, plugged it back in and held down the power button, a red light came on, held down the power button again and an orange light came on, held down power button again and green light came on and tv powered on. This was simply a case of trial and success!

Factory Reset for Tungsten T5 handhelds

If you've set a password on your device, any hard reset will automatically become a Factory Reset. With this method, you'll enter a password and then perform a hard reset.

1.On your handheld, launch the Prefs application. From the list that appears, under General, select Security.
2.If the Password box says "Unassigned," tap the box and create a password for your handheld.
3.Once the password has been set, hold down the Power (on/off) button on your device.
4.While holding down the Power button, turn over your device so that you can see the back of it. Still holding the Power button, use an unfolded paper clip or a similar small object to gently press the RESET hole (where?). Keep holding the Power button throughout.
5.While still holding the Power button, the screen will show the Palm logo and a progress bar will appear at the bottom. Then the circular Palm Powered logo will appear. Release the power button when you see the Palm Powered logo.

Keep holding the Power button during this screen. When you see this screen, you can release the Power button.
6.A message will appear warning that you are about to erase all the data stored on your handheld. Press UP.
7.You may see a screen that says "Reformatting in progress. This may take several minutes." This screen will remain for several minutes (up to 10 minutes). Don't do anything while this is happening.
8.If you performed this reset correctly, the screen of your device will go blank after several minutes, and you will not be able to turn on your handheld. The charging LED will not light up. (any other activity - such as the Palm OS logo and then the Applications launcher appearing - means the reset was performed incorrectly; try again)
9.Your device will appear "dead." To wake up your handheld, perform a soft reset.

Shuts down after 5 minutes blinks green

Once the set shuts down, wait for the unit to stop blinking. Once it stops hold in the input and menu buttons for 5 seconds. The TV will then give you an error code. A 6-1 or a 1-8 error code would indicate a bad Color wheel. Which I think is the problem you have.

Try to Initialize the Spool Disk: NOTE: Initializing the spool disk will delete all jobs in all queues. This procedure can be used when a corrupt job has caused the printer to stop printing. This procedure can also be used to correct certain machine faults.
  1. Press the ON / OFF switch. The power switch is located on the front right side of the machine under the Control Panel.

  2. Wait until the Touch Screen goes blank (this may take several minutes).

    CAUTION: Make sure to press the correct buttons all at the same time. An incorrect button combination may delete all customized printer settings.

  3. Press and hold down the [6] button on the numeric keypad, the [Energy Saver] and the [Stop] buttons simultaneously while powering ON the machine. Continue to hold down the three buttons until the Touch Screen displays several lines, goes blank and then displays lines again.
  4. Release the buttons. The machine will continue its normal boot up procedure to initialize the spool disk.

I have to hold the power on button down for several minutes to get the monitor to turn on, it attempts to but only for a split second.

Capacitors failing to hold charge, pressing the power button allows flow of current to the capacitors on the power board, which are then leaking the current rather than "storing" it, there is therefore insufficient charge to power the inverter with the jiuce it needs to light the screen.

Check capacitors for bulging or leaking ( better still get someone who is comptent to do it) . remember do not touch capacitors until 24 hours after powering off, as the can still retain a charge

Must press power button several times to power on,butwhen turned off again must press button several times to turn on again.

Could be a loose power button or problem with relay/circuitry. Recommend you get a professional to take a look.
Also try a hard reset:
Unplug from mains, remove all cabling from TV. Wait 10 mins. After 10-15mins, hold down the power button and replug TV to mains. Now redo all cabling and try powering on the TV.

Should it still not work, you'll have to call in a pro..

That unit does not have a touch screen so holding the screen while powering up wont do anything. I'm not sure which key it is on that model, but to do a reset you hold down one of the keys while powering up. Try holding down the enter key while you power up. If that doesn't work, try again with the other keys until you find it. If it doesn't reset, you may have a dead keypad.
