Question about Zenith Z32LZ5R 32 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

1 Answer

The picture on the TV just starts rolling. It eventually resolves back but that is taking longer and longer each time. Audio is fine. Is this an issue with by cable box or TV? The TV is 4 years ol

Also, I've unplugged all of the cables, do I actually need to replace them? Before purchasing a new TV, I'd like to make sure it is the TV. Thanks.

Check all the inter-connection cables between TV and cable box. If there is any loose contacts to these cables, the problem you reports here can occur. Check them well first. If all of them found OK, the main board [digital section] to your TV should be checked. This is a skilled work, and cannot be done by user. Contact any experienced service technician in this case.

SOURCE: picture is snowy/dark

update: Well, we ended up calling the repair man and we had a bad Y-sustain board and also a bad Z-sustain board. According to the guy who fixed it, it was due to over use of the TV and using main power button instead of shutting off through the cable remote. 650.00 later and a few weeks later, we now have a fixed plasma. No real suggestions on how to get more life out of the new boards.

You will want to use an HDMI connection for you cable. Check your cable box, it will be marked HDMI and probably have a cover snapped over it. Depending on the available inputs on your set and outputs on your other devices you may have to use component connections for your dvd player. Those will be marked "Y, Pr, and Pb" and will be RCA type connectors. (like the old stereo speaker hook ups). Check you cable box for an optical audio output and your surround sound unit if any or TV for optical audio inputs. They will be marked appropriately and may have some type of cover over them. Use that for your sound if you can. All of these cables can be obtained at your local electronics store or Walmart. You will want to measure all of your distances to insure the cables you buy are long enough to make the connections. Also be very careful of the optical cable. Don't kink it or fold it, they can be damaged internally and are fairly expensive. Lastly make sure all of your equipment is plugged into a good Surge suppressor not just an ordinary plug strip. A $20 investment for power conditioning can save you a lot of headaches down the road. I hope this helps you, Good Luck.

SOURCE: DVD cables

You have to plug your DVD cables into the "input" connectors on your tv. Input audio and input video. Also there is either a switch on the back of your tv or in your menu where you have to choose "component video". Or it might be labled Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, etc. You might have both a switch on your TV and a choice in your menu. If so, both have to be set to "component Video. Sometimes on the back of your set, the switch is not labeled. It just has "arrowed" lines coming from the different switch positions and leading to the "outputs and inputs" on the back of the set. Set the switch so that the lines lead to the red, blue and green INPUTS on the back of your set. Your problem is not serious. It is just a matter of "telling" your TV that you are using "component video". Component video is when you are using the red, blue, and green inputs. It is also possible that your DVD has another output besides "component out" and also has a switch. Make sure this switch on the back of your DVD is in the "component OUT" position. Your DVD might also have a connector on the back that looks like connectors on the back of VCR's and most TVs. This is an "F" connector and the cable has to be screwed on. It's just like a cable tv cable. Screw a cable into the "out to tv" on the back of your DVD and screw the other end of the cable into the "RF" INPUT (or cable input) connector on the back of your tv. Be sure to look ALL through your TV menu and DVD menu. The DVD sets to "component OUT" and the TV sets to "component IN". Hope this helps.

The controller board for the screen is going bad. check shopjimmy.com for replacement parts. It's not a difficult job to do. Once the back of the TV is removed, you'll see it near the center of the screen.

TV video/audio problem


It may not need repair or replacement.
Unplug the set at least overnight; the CRT (picture tube) has voltages that may be as high as 30,000 volts and take time to bleed off. Believe me, it stings if it bites you.
Remove the rear housing of the set, then use a clean (preferably new) 2-3" paint brush to whisk away any dust deposits you see. This works best with the nozzle of your vacuum cleaner near the area you are cleaning.
The problem you describe can be caused by an accumulation of dust that is picking up moisture from the air and temporarily creating a path for high voltage to discharge which can cause all kinds of strange occurances such as you describe. The warmup of the set dries out this moisture removing the discharge path.    If you don't remove this dust buildup, it will eventually damage the high voltage circuit if not others as well. That high voltage is a healthy static charge and wasn't designed to supply a lot of current which it has to do when discharging.

Mitsubishi rear projection no picture and static sound


I assume you are using a cable input, such as a box or the main Cable line connected directly to the TV. examine the main Cable Coax, look at the copper wire that sticks out from the connecter, make sure it is long enough, if its to short, gently pull it with a long nose plier until it reaches the rim of the connector. Sometimes when connecting the coax to a source, the copper wire in the coax is to short to make contact, and as a result you get no signal. Hope this solved your problem.

Red picture


Assuming this is a TV with a picture tube and not plasma or LCD; I'm afraid that your picture tube is dying on you one electron gun at a time. From what you said your green electron gun is almost totally dead and the two remaining blue & green guns aren't far behind. Eventually you'll have no picture at all and I would estimate that to be about 6 more months but whatever the time eventually it will go totally black. These blackout periods will get longer and longer. The only way to fix your problem is a new picture tube but my will probably find it less expensive to just get a brand new TV set.

Picture is Rolling..stops after some warm-up


I have seen this many times. There is a 9 volt regulator on the small signal board that causes this. The regulator goes bad and the 9 volts starts dropping, especially at start-up when the regulator is cold. If the voltage is below 8 volts then the picture gets dark and the vertical becomes unstable, with the picture squeezing down and/or rolling. As the regulator warms up the voltage starts rising back towards 9 volts and the symptoms start clearing up. There are 3 regulators in a row on the board and the regulator in the middle is always the bad one. Replacing that regulator should cure your problems but it should be replaced by someone experienced in servicing Mitsubishi projection TV's because pulling the chassis out is quite tricky.
