Replacing The power cord for Zenith H3242DT

Okay so this girl i know has this TV and the power cable is cut on it. I told her to go and get a replacement plug real easy right? Well she buys a 3 pronged cable like you would use for an external HD cut off the female end and hands it to me to fix. Money is tight so this is what we have to work with.

Out of the TV the cable has blue, brown, green w/white striped wires and there's also what looks like a bare wire just hangin out in there. the wire she gave me to use to fix it has green, brown, and black wires and that's it. Which wires go to which ones? And if it's not possible would i be able to hooke the wires up directly in the back of the TV. then comes finding out how to connect it there as well.

Hey, Just follow the colors. Green goes with green Striped wire, Brown with Brown, and Blue with Black. The bare wire is called "Earthing wire, and can be ignored.

How do i turn the television on i just bought it from the store


Either by your remote or manual. Some models have a master rocker switch close to the ac input where your cord plugs into. That kills all power to the set for vacation purposes.

Unable to record from tv


I have the same problem and I called Zenith for support. I was told that the ZBR716 does NOT have a "tuner", so the only way you can record what is on TV is if, and only if, the TV has OUTPUTS (3 connectors), which could be connected to the ZBR716's inputs. But then you could only record what is currently being watched on TV. You could not record and watch something else, or set up to record something at a particular time on a particular channel, because the TV has to be on.

Unfortunately, I didn't look into this until some time after I bought the unit, so I can't return it. I was told to get a VCR/DVD recorder WITH a tuner.

I, too, had a VCR with a separate coax connection for the incoming cable tv,and it worked like your other one did.

My fault for not looking into it sooner, Circuit City's fault for selling me something when I was very specific about what I wanted and what I wanted to do with it.

you can call zenith yourself, go to www.zenith.com and hit the support page and eventually you'll find the phone number.

good luck.

AV Out cable for portable Zenith (DVP-615) dvd.


I lost the AV cord to my Zenith DVP-615 portable DVD player too. I bought a standard RCA AV but it did not work. I found my cord so I was able to compare.
The standard RCA AV cable has a 4-part mini-plug. The tip is white, next is yellow, next is ground and the base is red. For the Zenith DVP-615, the tip is yellow, next is white, next is red and the base is ground.I never found where to purchase a replacement but perhaps this will help someone make their own.

TV's on. No Picture...No Sound


Have a problem with Zenith 37 HDTV. Medel number: Z37LZ5D As wathcing TV, along with 'pop' sound, TV went dead. LG service center gave an advice to unplug the power cord and press ON/OFF power switch about 1 min. Then plug power back and turn on the TV. Well, the green light blink for a while and solid green, but still no screen, no audio. Search the Web and someone suggested to replace Power Supply Board which will fix the problem. Again, search the Web and came out with Power Supply Board. LG Electronics/Zenith 'Power Supply Assembl' with $124.95 from PartStore.com. Is it the right solution? Do I have to replace entire Assembly Board? not just replacing some fuse? Any cheaper way to do? If I have to replce PSA board, any suggestion to how? Comment posted on Apr 22, 2009 I have a basic knowledge of electric and electronics, such as rewiring entire house for renovation and assemble entire computer from scratch.
Actually, the TV belongs to my father and the problem that I stated was based on what he told me.
So the question is based on the symptom that I posted, how sure are you that the problem is the Power Supply Board?
Is it good to order PSB? Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Purchased 2 and half years ago. Expired one year warranty. Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Zohail,
This is LCD TV.
There is no problem with the wall socket nor current.
I put other appliances on same wall socket and worked.
It has to be internal problem.
As I mentioned on the main post, there was a 'pop' sound while watching and TV went dead.
Turn on remote control, there is blink green light and then green stays on, but no sound, no screen.
Turn off remote control, light turns red. Comment posted on May 14, 2009 I fixed the TV.
Orderd power supply board which cost me $136.51 total.
Replacing was simple.
Just removed the rear panel cover then electronic board housing cover.
Took power supply board with all the connector cables and replaced with new one.
Problem was a transformer connector which got burned and blow up the plastic cover.
But no problem with fuse and capacitors.

Thanks all for advises.

Zenith xbr716


ALL cable is digital.
What type of TV do you have? Does it have any scart conections on it? If not connect the Cable box with a scart lead to your VCR select the AV channel on your VCR, connect your VCR to your TV via the RF connection, (if it has not got one, its not a TV, its a monitor). Tune your TV in to the video channel.
You do not need an RF modulator for a home TV setup, whoever told you that is a fool.
