Question about Zenith IQB36B42W TV

1 Answer

TV won't turn on.

Hello, I am hoping that you can help us. After working just fine, yesterday the tv wouldn't come on. We unplugged it which normally worked after a storm or something like that, but this time it didn't work. It will not turn on either by remote or on the tv itself. A couple of times, after unplugging it, it clicked like it was coming on and then clicked right back off. When hitting the power button on the remote it feels like there is just nothing there. We also pushed a lot of buttons on the remote because it seemed like it was "locked up". Which did nothing. Can you help us? Thank you very much. Mary Kay

Re: TV won't turn on.

It sounds like you have problem with the switch on the tv itself. try opening the front panel where switch is located and check wiring or maybe change the switch which you can get it online.

TV won't come back after pushing wrong button on remote.

Try unplugging the TV.. After you plug it back in it may be OK. I had a similar problem were I could not turn on the TV (JVC). The owners manual specified in the troubleshooting section to unplug for 1/2 hour. I left it unplugged overnight and the next day plugged it in and it was fine.

When turned on it sort of made a brief "crack" then a slight picture, and it wouldn't turn off without unplugging. Replugged in and hit "on" the hum returned, no picture , wouldn't turn off again...

upon realizing that no one would give me any suggestions without charging me, I solved the problem by lugging this huge TV out to the dumpster and throwing it in.

TV will not stay on

You have done everything that a consumer can do. The problem is most likly in the horizontal section of the tv. This will be something for a repair shop to fix.

Tv wont come on

i think it's the built-in power surge/failure sensor.  Plug the TV into the wall and press RESET on the remote twice.

Unplug the TV for 4 hours or more. This is called a 'Hard Reset'. Then plug it back in, turn it on and let the TV do it's thing. It will set itself up. Just follow the TV setup prompts. Guide Plus is a feature on the TV. Much like a TV guide showing all channels, shows, description of shows, times, etc..
