Question about Zenith Z36H96R 36" TV
36-inch console ~12 years old. Have been experiencing wave patterns on screen for the last week. Turned it off Friday night. Turned on Saturday morning. No picture, no sound, power light on. Black screen. Menus will appear on black screen, change channel, satellite etc.
Satellite and DVD work on 2nd TV with no problem. Same surge protector used, no fuse or breaker issue.
Thanks for your time.
Invest in a long poking stick....... Either the Infrared receiver or controller it blew out. The high amount of static electricity formed and must of jumped off by the infrared receiver causing a momentary short in the circuit board. Safety's shut the tv down before frying, but damage looks to be done. It can be fixed, but only cheap if only the infrared receiver was damaged, anything else and it's going to be pricey.

SOURCE: Zenith TV won't turn on
Not really a solution but i have the problem with mine< opened it up and it's part number 38-102 or ex3401 which appears to be a open fuse by the AC in on the board. When I bridged the open, melted gap it turned on, smoked, and melted again with a spark so be that as it may there's got to be something going on here that can't be too hard to fix but the repair man will make more on the sale of a new tv than fixing the old.
