Question about Zenith Z27H41D 27" TV

1 Answer

Herring-bone pattern I have audio mixing with the picture. To clear the problem I select TV/VCR source and then back to TV and the problem goes away until I change channel and the herring-bone pattern comes back. The TV was made in 1997. Many thanks

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.

My ten year old sony plasma tv has vertical herring bone lines no picture just color lines. Is my picture tube gone.


If its 10 years old boards and or parts will likely not be available--average life on Plasma and LCD sets is 3-5 years.

I would retire it--recycle it and buy a new set.

How To Connect A VCR


Hello,

your question is not clear enough. Do you mean "How to connect VCR to your TV?" If yes, then the below solution is the answer to your question. But if that's not your question, please rephrase your question for proper and accurate solution.

Connecting the VCR to a TV is not a big deal. There are two methods by which you can connect the VCR to our TV.

1. You can use a RF cord.
2. You can use a RCA cord.

I would suggest you use the RCA cord because the RCA connection has a better sound and display quality than the RF. So I would direct you on how to use the RCA connection method.

Here is a picture of what the RCA cord looks like for quick identification;

elect_comp_3.jpg

As you can see from the above picture that there are three cords. The Yellow cord is for display (video), while the with and red is for sound (audio Left & Right).

Turn of the VCR and the TV.

Look at the back of the VCR, connect the yellow to 'video out' and the white and red to 'audio out'. Note that the VCR might have only one audio out, that doesn't matter, just connect any of the red and white.

Now connect the other end of the cord to the back of the TV this way; Yellow will go to 'Video in' while the red & white will go to 'Audio in'.

Turn on the TV and VCR.

Select the TV to Source/AV and the display of the VCR should appear on the TV. Or better still, you can insert a cassette into the VCR, press play before selecting Source/AV on the TV.

By now the connection should be Okay.

If you any more questions or clarifications, please let me know as I would be glad to respond.....

Yours sincerely.

How do I re-connect a VCR/DVD player to a Bravia? I have (!) video output and (1) audio output wire from the VCR unit and have tried a number of combinations without success connecting to the back of the...


The DVD/VCR player should have video (Y) plus right (R) and left (?) outputs that connect to corresponding inputs on the rear of the Bravia TV. You should be able to press the TV/VCR button on the remote to select that device as the input source.

Humming noise through Tv speakers. Goes away if I mute sound?


If the noise is coming in through the onboard tuner then repair may the only option. If you have a DVD or VCR and can connect the line level inputs (look like stereo connections) then do so and use that input, if the sound persists there then it is likely the audio circuitry - also a repair item.
Bypassing the TV sound system involves connecting your cable box, DVD or VCR (using the tuner from that unit select channels) audio output to a stereo system and then the TV becomes a big monitor (picture only)

Check if it has a scrambled image on all sources ie - DVD- VCR - cable/satellite box. Since the PIP is normal it sounds like the signal source is bad.

Lost manual...I cannot get DVD or VCR to record


You need to decide which set of inputs or outputs you want to use. To record, and watch what you have recorded on your TV, you will need TWO sets of audio/visual patch cords. One for recording and the other for playing. Let's start with the recording. Look for the Line in or video in plugs on your DVD-VCR unit. Some recorders have separate inputs for the VCR and DVD. Others let you select with the remote. Usually Line 1 is at the back and Line 2 is on the front. Your remote will have "recording source" to let you select, or sometimes you can use the channel up and down arrows to select your input source. Your remote will also allow you to select either the DVD or VCR for recording. Connect the Yellow plug to the Video In socket, and the red and white plugs to audio in., Connect the other end of the cord to the TV or cable box. Yellow goes to Video Out, red and white go to audio out. Recording from the cable box is much easier because you wiull always have a signal going into the DVD-VCR recorder no matter what happens at the TV.  Now look for the Video out connection on the DVD-VCR recorder. Connect the Yellow plug to video out and the red and white plugs to audio out. Ignore the other connections at this point. They are for RGB component video. Your DVD -VCR should have one output for both functions. Use that one.
Now connect that cord to a Video one or Video 2 input on your TV.
Test the set-up. Play a DVD or a VHS tape and try to bring it in using the TV remote.
Then turn on a program and try to record it on  the DVD-VCR, then play it back.
This sounds very complicated, but all that's involved are two patch cords with three plugs on each end - 12 connections in all and color-coded. YELLOW is always video.

VCR to TV setup needed


Doreen, it is a simple job. At the back of the VCR you will find two sockets mentioned Video Out and Audio Out. Put the yellow plug in Video Out of VCR and the other end of this cable will have another yellow plug, which you put in the Video IN (PUT) of the TV. Take the White plug of the cable and put it in AUDIO OUT of the VCR and put the other end in RED AUDIO IN(PUT) of the TV, (Older VCRs like yours did not have stereo sound capability, and so there is only ONE Audio OUT from the VCR. )
Now, put a tape in the VCR and hit PLAY. Switch onthe TV and select AV1 or AV2. You should be able to get Picture and sound.

Hi!

This sounds a lot like a setup problem. If you have connected more than one kind of cable to the unit (say, coax and RCA, or RCA and S-video), the unit needs to be told what cables to use. I'm not familiar with this particular unit, but I would bet there is a place in the setup utility where you can tell it which connection to use. Tell it to use the highest quality one you have connected and see if this fixes your problem.

Good luck and let me know if this helps!
