Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

1 Answer

Picture problems My 27' zenith suddenly started narrowing down to the point where there is only a small strip of picture in the middle of the TV. Sometimes if you shut it off it will come back to full screen but only for a very short time. I ahve had this TV for 10-12 years and I am wondering if it is worth fixing.

Re: Picture problems

If the line goes across the screen you have a loose solder joint on the vertical output IC. I've seen this happen many times in Zeniths and a lot of other sets. If the IC is not loose then there is a loose solder joint somewhere else in the vertical circuit. These IC's are 10 - 13 pin chips that operate the vertical deflection on your set. I feel like a drop of solder in the right place will fix it! Stargazer

The picture is jumping, sometimes the tv shows three of the picture.

The solder joints on the vertical output IC have cracked. This is a common problem in those sets and resoldering the pins of the vertical outpit IC will cure the problem.

The best way to diagnose is to unplug everything execpt pwr & ant & test & plug one wire in & test and ditto,untill you find the culprit.If this does not work check the pwr supply and any connecting leads in the tv.This way you narrow the possibilitys down(is it the tv or the input device.) regards Chook.

If this set uses a picture tube then your problem may be in the vertical deflection circuit. Also an unstable power supply will cause this problem. Stargazer
