A32B43W Power Problem

I have a 32" Zenith A32B43W set. When Power is pressed either on the remote or on the set itself, the relay clicks on then off immediately. This happens most of the time with the set never coming on. Every once in a while the relay stays on and the set works fine. We think this happened during a lightning storm... Is it a relay problem or something bigger?

Re: A32B43W Power Problem

The relay is part of the overcurrent circuit. This denotes a problem in the HV power supply. Try to resolder the relay just in case the it has a cold solder joint. If this does not help get a schematic and a multimeter and check to see if the voltages around the power supply seciton of in order. If you do not have a background in electronics please take the set to a TV repair shop.

Need remote control code for dish network along with how to instructions. I can't locate my manual for my Zenith

Try this...1) turn on your tv set manually.2) on you dish and hold the "TV" mode button next to the "SAT" button.when all of the other mode buttons light up, let the "TV" button should be flashing.3) Press the blank power button(The top red button in the top center of the remote).4) press the UP or DOWN button at the rate of about 1 per second until the tv turns off.4) When the tv turns the # key on the bottom right of the remote...this stores the code and you should be ready to go...please try this first..It should work.If the scan doesn't work...The only code for Orion is "694".I hope this was helpful....

The TV will not power on at all

Is the set completely dead? if so you should see no indicator lights and hear no "click' when the power button is pressed. If so than the only thing wrong with the set ic the main Fuse (6.3A 250VAC) has blown.

Zenith A32B43W color problem

Classic symptoms! Most of the last TV's made by the old, original Zenith company (Rauland division) had bad picture tubes even when new. This probably had something to do with their going out of business and being taken over by a much better Korean company (LG Electronics AKA Goldstar). Another lovely thing they did before biting the big one was to only sell a complete chassis as a repair part. If your TV is older and has a small white paper tag inside somewhere on the picture tube (usually near the larger brand and type number label) with the code "EIA 1101" on it, discard it. I have NEVER seen one of these work correctly! If the CRT is made by someone else, there may be slight hope. Even if the TV is not very old, if it was really made by Zenith, and not LG, the possibility of repair is slim simply because of the change of ownership. I was sad to see Zenith die such a horrible death. They used to be fairly good, but somehow never made the transition to color TV. After 1954 they were essentially moribund.

Power button

No, you cannot disconnect the power switch. A defective power switch will not make the set turn on and off by itself, because the power relay is actually controlled by the microprocessor. The microprocessor in your set is trying to start the set but immediately detects a fault somewhere and shuts the set back off. This can be a difficult problem to solve and the set should be serviced by a qualified tech.

My tv will not turn on.

First of all, forget about the remote and see if the TV functions normally using the buttons on the front of the set itself. If the TV will not power on with the power button on the set itself, then something is wrong inside the TV. If the set works fine from the front buttons but no longer responds to that remote, then the remote has either gone bad or was accidently set to a different brand. In this case, look for the original book that came with the remote (or TV if it is the original remote) and follow the instructions for setting the remote back to Zenith. Try that and post your results here.
