Replacement capacitor for zenith model A32B86R

A capacitor just blew in my zenith model A32B86R. I'd like to replace it. It is #CX3231 on the circuit board. It was burnt too badly to read the numbers on the side of the capacitor. Any help?

The DM board is the one with the digital connectors on the back panel. If you already have it appart, you may as well check the caps on all of the boards. The caps that go bad are typically Jamicon brand caps in 1000 uF and 330 uF values. There are also a couple of 3300 uF caps in the PS that cause problems.

1. Try this - hold the menu button down for 10 seconds. TV should power up; you will have to turn off front panel buttons on menu.

2. You can also try plugging in the TV through the USB on its panel to a computer or USB charger, and it may work. However, this is only a temporary solution.

3. Powering down the set or putting it in standby may have allowed the power supply to cool. Weak capacitors often go out of spec when they cool, thus preventing a section of the power supply from firing up properly again. There is a simple trick...just warm the back of the TV with a hair dryer for 5-7 mins after you have unplugged the TV. Look for the little areas of holes in the back panel of TV. Use these as your guide at where to use the hairdryer, but don't hold the dryer too close (say 5-6inches away). (Make sure the dryer is on High heat). If the TV doesn't turn on after you have heated it up (like it tries to come on but then turns off) you need to unplug the TV again, this resets it. And repeat those steps till it works. Resetting the TV after it fails to turn on is the key. Also, just leave the TV on. Don't turn in off. Since it is LCD, it doesn't take much power...only a few bucks extra a month for your utility bill.

4. A circuit board may crack about some of the larger components mounted on it. You can inspect the PCB's for fractures, and then repair them. It may also be poor soldering that has failed. I would be checking for these things first.

5. If you want to go in for a long term solution, you can easily replace the whole power board or just change the faulty capacitors. You will have to open the back panel and take a look. You can make out which are faulty, because their caps will be swollen on top. Here's a sample pic (not same model):
d4dea15.jpg
Check the specifications of the faulty capacitors, and get the replacements from your local electronics shop. If you are comfortable with this, you can use a pair of needle nose pliers to G-E-N-T-L-Y pull out the defunct capacitors. Once that is done, solder in the new capacitors carefully. If are unsure how to do this, try to get a friend who knows how to do this kinda stuff do it for you, or get a qualified technician. Warning: If you do not have a background in electronics repair, or are inexperienced, get a qualified technician to do it for you.

REMEMBER there are very dangerous voltages inside a TV that can KILL. Be sure to work SAFE when dealing with electricity. DISCONNECT THE POWER BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING.

Hope that helps!

ok people lets not make this so difficult.

you need 3300 mfd/ 10 volt electrolytic capacitors.thes are general purpose capacitors. the 105 t C is temperature tolerance.no big deal 85 c or 105 c is fine. try google search for MCM electronics, or Pacific Coast electronics or anybody that sells electronic parts

The thermocouple burned out on my Mom's 32" Zenith A32B86R TV, it is a couple hundred miles away from me but my brother sent a picture of the board. Anyone know the part number of the thermocouple? It's...


You are talking about a thermistor. A small shiny disk, correct? You may use an RCA replacement part for your Zenith. A very common fix. And that part# is 207768. This replacement is a dark burgandy or dark orange and has a covering on it. Quite the contrast to the shiny silver disk you have. But I assure you this will work. If you have this board out, I suggest you change a few capacitors. There are some bad ones in there by now. Find someone with a capacitor checker to find them and replace them. Also resolder all grounds on power resistors and transistors, take note on anything fastened to a heatsink. This TV will give you a few more years of its time! You have the board out may as well check it out! Good Luck!

Zenith A32B41W 32


They are labeled 561K 2KV, stands for 560pF (pico Farad) 2000volt.

You can easily get replacements from Digi-key, Mouser Electronics, Allied Electronics, Newark Electronics, and many other places. (sorry, your local Radio Shack doesn't have them.) I suggest that you get 2500-3500 volt as replacements as that's probably what they should have been in the first place.
At Digi-Key I found part number 490-4141-ND, 3.15KV replacements at $0.33 ea., the shipping will be the biggest part of the cost!

I dont see this model number under PTS corp list of Zenith's modules. But a service manual is available from http://www.servicemanuals.net For a download. If you know how to work on solid state electronics, then you should have no problem with this repair. If your a handi person, a TV set is no place to be experimenting around inside of as it can seriously kill you. Find a trined tech to assist you with this. Good Luck
