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

Re: Herring-bone pattern

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.

Blue screen. No audio or video through the cable hook up. RCA model #32V420T

What to do if you have an all snowy picture (blue screen or the TV displays unusable signal-no signal or no sync)
1 – If you are using a digital cable box or satellite receiver (make sure it’s on) and be sure your TV is set for either CH3 or CH4 (which ever you usually view it on). If you usually view it through video inputs (video1 or 2 etc.) make sure the appropriate input is selected.
If you still don’t get a signal see if you get picture using the DVD or VCR (if available) if you do than plug the satellite or Dig. Box temporarily into the place of the DVD (unplug DVD) you may have to use some A/V cables (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) to hook to the tv from the sat./dig. box. If you get a signal then the sat./dig box is ok. If not the Sat./dig box is not sending a signal and is either defective or needs to be rebooted (unplug wait 5 min try again).
2 – If you are using standard cable or antenna (source) if possible check that the source is good by connecting to another TV. Otherwise try running the source into a VCR and then out to the TV using video inputs (RCA yel./red/wht like the ones on the DVD) and then selecting the appropriate input. Try seeing if the VCR plays using standard CH3 (or CH4)
If the VCR plays on video input but not when connected to CH3 (CH4) then the tuner of the TV may be defective – see if you can use the VCR to change channel using the VCR remote.

I have heard of similar problems, but have not seen it happen first hand.
My first thought is that you should remove the batteries from your remote and see if the problem goes away, if it does then your remote is faulty or has sticky buttons, if not try...
Place a piece of tape (not clear) over the tv's IR sensor, this will block any ir signals that may be coming from another source. If this corrects the problem then you have something in the room that is generating a light source that the ir receiver is mistaking as a valid signal.
I find it hard to believe that the tv's circuitry is at fault, but it can happen. Make sure you have no sources of electromagnetic interference close to the tv, such as any external speakers, or any other electronic equipment. Unplug all other electronic devices that are near the tv and see if the problem goes away.
Hope this helps!

Where do i plug dvd vcr player into tv there r 3 sets of red yellow&white

Select an input set on the back (example "Video 2"), use the RCA cables to connect the video component player to the selected input. yellow is video signal, red & white are the audio. To view/listen, select with the remote using the button called "TV/Video" or something similar. Hit the button repeatedly until you are viewing the desired source.

I am assuming that your TV has Video IN source selection.

You need to use the Video/Audio OUTput of the VCR/CD and connect them to the Video/Audio INput of the TV. To do this you would have to use a 3-wire shielded cable with male RCA connectors color yellow, red & white.
c296912.jpg RCA male connectors, yellow is usually video, red/white is audio left/right.

599898c.jpg as shown OUT of VCR/CD to IN of TV.

Pnce done, play the VCR/CD with a good known CD or tape and set TV to Video mode.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

No Picture on TV

? What is the model # off the back ?

Does the video work on the RF coax cable input?

For instance,as a test,can you hook-up from VCR coax RF out

to TV coax in,put the TV on Chan. 3,play a tape and get audio and video?


Are you matching colors when trying the A/V inputs?Yellow,red,

and white out of DVD to yellow,red and white in on back of TV?

Then select video input on tv===dial "00" or use input button on

original RCA remote. Are you using original RCA remote that

came w/TV ? Do you have the owner/operator manual for the TV?

   Sorry to ask so many  ?????   Let me know how it goes!!  T.

Using a VCR with it.

Hi, Based on your post/description, a common installation/connection would be: 1. Ant/Cable in to the RF INput of the VCR (this is assuming that your cable TV is cable/F output and not the audio/video RCA output); 2. A short RG59 cable with F connectors at both ends should connect RF OUT of VCR to ANT/CABLE IN of TV. 3. With the VCR off, the cable would connect automatically to the TV and channel selection is thru your TV. 4. With the VCR on, The TV must be set to either 3 or 4, channel selection may be done on the VCR, TV programs can be recorded, video tapes can be played. A variation: Another would be to use the Audio/Video OUTput of the VCR to the Audio/Video INput of the TV (assuming it's got one). The TV must be set to Video to watch cable, VCR. Channel selection would be thru the VCR. Hope this be of some idea/help. Post back should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Perfect picture on TV, DVD and VCR, but no color means you have selected the wrong color system.Since you are in the UK, make sure that the VCR Color system is also set to PAL. Perhaps it is wrongly set to SECAM?

Sound Problem

If you are feeding the VCR signal into the antenna connector,then you could have a problem with the sound circuit drifting off frequency. If you are feeding the VCR signal into an "A-V" jack then you could have a problem with the audio amplifier inside your set. The circuit board would have to be tested to determine where the exact problem is located. Stargazer
