It certainly sounds like a drive problem in the set. It could be a bad connection on the CRT socket, a componet on the CRT driver board, a bad drive transistor, a connection between the CRT driver board and the RGB /video jungle IC, or the RGB/video jungle IC itself. If you know how to solder and or have some sort of solid state repair experience, you should be able to find this problem by simply probing around with a wooden or plastic tool tilll the problem arises. If you have no experience, there is no easy quick fix. You should find a local repair person to assist you with this repair. good luck PS Please dont forget to rate this thread.

16 yr old 25" Zenith..1st colors went yellow/lime now TV is dead

Absolutely not worth repair. You have described a classic symptom of Zenith picture tube failure, and about 99% of the time the main board in the TV is ruined as well. You've gotten good life from the set (manufacturers figure tube life is around 7 years these days), so it's time to replace it.

This is very typical of a Zenith set.Your picture tube will have to be replaced.One of your 3 primary colors (red,green,&blue) have turned off leaving you with the color of the dominant color.I would heave it.

No color / Zenith TV Model SJ2771W

You need to replace the color crystal (frquency is 3.579545 mhz) problem is I do not know which one it is... sorry. If you have the schematics for the TV it should be easy to locate but... you don't. See if the crystals in your TV are marked with a frequency. If not, try replacing one at a time... if the problem goes away your all set, if it does not or gets worse put the old crystal back and try it in the next. Do this at your own risk and watch out for that large red wire going to the picture tube!! Even when the TV is unplugged it can kill you!
