Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

2 Answers

Tv will not turn on

It has happened twice before. I go to turn it on and just hear a double click. Like it comes on for a sec then turns right back off. I can continually do this and before it has eventually came on. I have even unplugged it for 1/2 hour. Now it will not turn on at all. Still the double clicking, turns on then turns off immediately. And when it has turned on before, a message 'AC Line Failed' appears on screen.

Its the capacitor. Look for one that is bulged or seaping glur like substance and replace it.. U can buy them at radio shack or any electronics store fot cheap. 6 or so for a buck or 2. Ebay also has them. U will need a soldoring gun also, but it will be fixed for a few bucks in sted of a few hundred

'AC Line Failed'
That was generated when you pulled the AC plug. This is telling you that some custom settings you might have made could be lost.
The clicking you hear is a relay that repeatedly connects, then disconnects the AC to prevent fire or further damage. 
 
If it's failing to turn on, the main power supply is probably at fault and without some technical background and a couple of test instruments, you will not be able to do the repair yourself.

I hooked the ps3 to the philips tv. turned on the ps3, AV1 displays in the corner. Nothing else happens, I am expecting the ps3 logo


give this a try...

Leave the TV running, go over to your PS3 and turn it off.

Once its off, hold the power button down till you hear a beep, KEEP HOLDING THE POWER BUTTON till you hear a double beep. The PS3 will shut itself off.

Give the device a couple of seconds, then hit the power button one last time (just turn it on, you don't have to hold it).

If all went right, your baby is back up and running...

When I turn it on it goes right back off in like 2 seconds- I can hear it come one and start to hear the sounds but it clicks right back off


your high voltage protect circuit is working properly.
take the tv to a tv shop to have them find out the reason for excessive high voltage. Your tv is protecting you from a possible fire.

TV turned off by itself and now it won't turn back on


If the tv has nothing happening at all when you try and turn it back on including any noise, your power supply is broken. If it is still trying to turn on or does make noise, an internal component has come loose or been knocked off, most likely to your picture tube.

Good Day, Girl 1;
Hey, Girl 1, I have four girls not counting my wife . So, helping you may be difficult. Just kidding!
I would highly suspect that you have fluid on your TV's PCB's (printed circuit boards).
So, at this point that you should call an Authorized Service Center and have them give you an estimate before any repairs are performed.
If you want to try repair on your own e me at mmrkcar@yahoo.com.

Thanks you and Good Luck, big IRISH.

Clicking noise+horizontal flashes


What you are hearing is the high voltage arcing a bit. This is often caused by dust buildup on the high voltage components, & is not harmful. A good cleaning with compressed air will cure it, but this is not a do it yourself job, because dangerous voltages are present inside any TV.
