It could be that the video heads are just clogged.
Get a known good video tape and put it in the unit and let it just play and play and play. Quality video tapes have head cleaning substances built into the tape. If this does not work, get a Scotch Black Watch tape head cleaner. If that does not work the the heads are bad or some other problem.

Dvd picture ok, but when i try vcr the screen on my tv come out green . good audio but no picture.


make sure you plug your video into the correct ports of the TV... if you have 3 plug (red, white, yellow) make sure you have them plugged into those and not the Red/White/yellow/cyan/blue (i think) because those are composite and won't work with vid out

I have some distored blue color across the screen


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Can't turn off progressive scan on my dvd/vcr player.


Page 18 of the operating manual cites this, to reset to default viewing mode:

1) Remove any disc from the unit and close the disc
tray. See that “dISC” is displayed on the display
window.
2) Press STOP and hold it for more then five
seconds before releasing it. The video output will be
restored to the standard setting and a picture will
once again be visible on a conventional analog TV or
monitor.

If that doesn't work, please let me know.

27" Zenith Television


Assuming the picture tube lights up and you have snow when selecting the tuner function, I would first hook up a working VCR with a good tape and play it while the set is on channel 3 (if that is what your VCR is set to). If no sound or picture is displayed while the tape is playing,it could indicate a defective tuner. If you don't even get snow with no antenna connected (unless your set is designed to go to a blue screen with no signal present) then you could have a problem in the video processing circuits which would explain no picture with the RCA connections as well. This would probably make the set beyone economical repair.

Video noise at bottom of screen


Try adjusting the tracking on your VCR. This symptom would typically be caused by a slight tracking error in your VCR or video heads that need to be cleaned. Your Zenith TV may be a little more sensitive to video synchronization problems than your other TV is.

If VCR tracking adjustments have no effect on the symptom, then the problem could be in the TV, but I'll need more details to assist you with troubleshooting. For example, how do you connect the VCR to the TV?

Diagonal lines across picture


do you have a dvd or vcr hooked up to this? Is it hooked up with the a/v cables (yellow, red and white). double check the cable hookup make sure audio cord is not in the video jack, from what you are saying this will do that if it is. Also there is a capacitor on the main board believe it to be C3412 which intermittenly gives horz. lines but haven't had a audio tone with that.
