Question about Televison & Video
Thanks for the information about the need to replace the capaitor for our Zenith Presentation TVs at the schools. Are all universal 100uf 50 volt capacitors the same or do I need one specifically for this model of TV? I see they are very cheap but wanted to make sure I order the right ones? Any suggestions as to the best place for ordering them? Thanks again for the help!

Hello again! Sorry, I was not more exact... capacitors are not all alike...too long to go into...100uf 50volt Electrolytic Capacitors are what you need.
I always use the phone to order what I need and when you tell the parts person you need a 100uf 50 volt cap it's already understood that you want Electrolytic capacitors. It' s pretty rare to have to order the other types of capacitors as they are extremely long lived and are not in "high stress" circuits anyway.
Can you please tell me the model # of these sets. I will obtain (if I don't already have it) the service manual and make sure I am telling you 100% correctly what your problem is. Zenith tv's have always been notorius for this problem all through the '80s \ '90s \ early 2000s though. That's why I am telling you it is this same capacitor in all these sets
It makes me happy to help a school too! I am the single Dad of two elementary school age girls.
Is your school system in the USA? Just curious... Hope you have nice day!
