Question about Zenith B25A02Z TV

1 Answer

Sound We were watching a program and the sound became distorted (words were slow and the voices had a real deep sound). I tried different channels. The voices seemed a little different on the higher channels (22 and 33) than on channels 8, 10 and 13. We have Time Warner Cable. Our other tv, connected to the cable line, works fine so we are thinking it is something with the tv itself. The Zenith Color TV handles the HD signal thru the cable and we really enjoy the sound and picture on this old tv. The TV is a 1998 Zenith Color TV - serial number =SE2517P. It is a console with speakers along the side of the picture tube. It has been in the family for years. My brother-in-law bought in 1988 and now we have it. We have had it in our home for 11 years. In that 11 years, only once did it need repair (something burned out like a tube but not the picture tube). Can you help? Sandi J

I do not have a Zenith B25A02Z TV. What I do have is a 1988 Zenith Color TV SE2517P. I called a local tv repairman and discussed the problem over the phone. He can take a look at it if we bring it in (service call to the home cost $100 just to show up). He said it was worth fixing since he thought it was only the sound. We have a great picture. He charges $20 to look at it but we have to leave it. He lives 20 minutes away one way. We think it is worth the trip if we can get it loaded into our minivan. We live in western NY where the weather can get pretty ugly many days. I will post the solution later when I know. FYI

Distorted sound on pc deep voice sound


Sounds like you've got a virus if you are not playing music or looking at a video. If the voice is coming on by itself run a virus scan.

Then try this:
Go to www.google.com and in the search box type:"Download cnet Malwarebytes" (without the quotes). Download andinstall malwarebytes from the sites download.cnet/malwarebytes. When thesite opens up click on the Green Download button on the left. Do notclick the Red Download button, that's junk. When it finishes installing the GuiInterface will open up with an offer to Accept a Trial Version orDecline. CLICK DECLINE you want the totally free version. Run aQUICK SCAN. As it scans, if it finds infections the number will be inred. When it finishes scanning, click SHOW RESULTS. A notepad textdocument will open up showing you the results. You can close the textdocument and go back to the Gui Interface where you will click REMOVE SELECTEDRESULTS. The objects will already be selected for you. When itfinishes removing the objects click ok and it will sometimes reboot yourmachine.

Maybe your speakers are bad. How does it sound when you play a music cd or when you watch a music video on Youtube.com?

The sound is distorted and overwhelmed by static


Depends what the real problem is.

Is it related to certain sources only - try new or reseated cables,swap it to a different input; single channel - swap to isolate; or certain controls that have become noisy? A shop might be able to get some tuner cleaner into them.

No sound of voice, only surround sound


If you do not have a center channel speaker connected, then in the reciever setup menu for speakers, there should be a selection for center channel that says something like either yes or no. I'm guessing it says yes. Then you need to select "no" so that the circuitry will direct sound specified for the center channel to be reproduced through your front speakers.

Center Speaker sound just not right


If the optical cable was bad, the sound would be distorted period. The optical cable (whether coax or fiber) just simply carries the coded audio to the receiver which in turn decodes it. I have never heard of a signal just screwing up the center channel, and I've been at this better than 30 years. Not to say it's impossible, but very unlikely.

Did you try swapping speakers? Move the left one to the center and the center to the left. Does the center remain "distorted"? Does the left become "distorted"? If the center remains distorted, the receiver's center channel has something wrong with it. If the left is distorted, the speaker has a problem.

For the future. it is un-neceaasy to purchase expensive cables. In fact it could make things worse. The claim to fame of most expensive cable manufacturers is the gold plating on the connectors. Unless the bioth sides have gold plating (receiver, cable box) this actually creates a capacitive reactance between the different metal types. FYI-capacitive and inductive capacitances are the basis for designeing cross-overs, filters, etc. So basically, an undesired filtering effect is created. This applies to speaker cables, audio, video, etc....

Center speaker


I had the exact same problem. In order to "almost" balance the center with the other channels I had to give the center +12db gain and the other channels -12db. So after I got that far with level calibration I tried some tv sound, well the center although was playing sounded like the highs were missing and a bit distorted. This is the good part, I turned the volume all the way up real fast, somewhere near max something fixed itself, the center became very loud. Now it works just like new. Hope this helps. BTW, the problem existed the same for sub channel, so when the center started working so did the sub.
