When I turn it on in sparks in the back on the right side and now it just looks bright green with lines. I can still see a picture vaguely. What should I do?

TV sparks then shuts off, whats the problem?


Check the EHT boot cap for damage. Contact any experienced service technician. Extra High Tension arcing is going on inside. Do not turn ON this TV, until the fault has been rectified. It might make more parts to get damaged.

When you turn on the TV it makes this buzzing sound like something is spinning inside the TV. After a while the TV cut off on its own. It has a new bulb in it.


check the fan that cools the bulb. if its rubbing something that would make the buzzing sound, and if its not cooling the bulb it will shut off when it over heats.

Colors going bad on my tv?


The picture tubes in Zenith sets (I assume it's a Zenith since you posted this with a Zenith heading, although it's also true for any set this old) were only expected to last around 7 years. Your description makes it sound like you are missing green, or that the green is just way low. This is a common sign of a bad picture tube. There are other possible causes, but tube failure is the most likely. The low replacement cost for small TV sets makes repairing this one uneconomical.

Get rid of the set and treat yourself to a new one.

High pitch buzzing.


Hi there
Let's make ur problem a bit clear. "white lines" how? where?
meaning retrace lines with full raster or a single vertical line?
buzzing sound? without even turning the power switch of the TV to "ON" or when u just plug the power cord?
I'll check for schema, mean while can u tell me where the resistor leads to? is it a fusible resistor? if so , to which area the resistor suppliers power?
Regards
Rifaa

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.

Picture is gone! :*(


the picture tube (what makes the TV picture work) has blown out. Just call you nearest tv reapair shop and purchase a new one. (these are kind of expensive!)

(Also, if it's fifteen years old, i think it's time to get a new T.V. hint. hint.)

Buzzing after 1 hour


Is the buzzing coming from the back of the TV, staying loud even when the volume is turned all the way down, or is it coming from the speakers?
