My Zenith B25A11ZF HAs Lost all color!! My cables and connections are all fine... there's just no color.....but the kicker here is that the channel indicator in the corner is still in perfect color... i guess the problem is not with the picture tube but with the tuner somewhere... any ideas for a home fix...?

Turn off the TV then unplug it. Disconnect the cable connection and clean the terminals. If the stripes still exist, you have a bad TCP (tape carrier package). It is responsible in transmitting color information to the display panel from the X-Drive (A-Bus) Board. This is not an easy repair. Service of an experienced or a qualified technician is recommended.
Try unplugging it if color regains its the box and not the TV!! if it dont regain then the flyback needs to be looked at. I am sure its the box and not the TV and yes had problems with zenth boxes Thank you
I do not have a Zenith B25A02Z TV. What I do have is a 1988 Zenith Color TV SE2517P. I called a local tv repairman and discussed the problem over the phone. He can take a look at it if we bring it in (service call to the home cost $100 just to show up). He said it was worth fixing since he thought it was only the sound. We have a great picture. He charges $20 to look at it but we have to leave it. He lives 20 minutes away one way. We think it is worth the trip if we can get it loaded into our minivan. We live in western NY where the weather can get pretty ugly many days. I will post the solution later when I know. FYI
Norm, I am assuming you are using component cables. Check to make sure you have the lines ran into the TV in ports e.g. Video1, HDMI1, HDMI3. Also check to make sure the system is not on MUTE or that the internal speakers on the TV are not turned off. If that fails and all was well before the new set of cables try another set.
Press menu button on the TV if the on screen display is also distorted or no pic the TV is definetely defective. You can try unpluuging from wall for about 15 minutes and see if reset helps if not problem is either main p.c.b , LCD panel , LVDS cable or Power supply board. and would require service. most likely problem would be bad connection at or defective LVDS cable that connects main p.c.b to Panel (cheapest fix) or defective main p.c.b. If it is the panel it would probably not be worth repairing and you may want to sell as is on ebay.
If you are connected to cable TV with or without a cable box, I would first have the TV do an autoprogram again to verify that it is in the correct tuning mode for your cable system. If that doesn't dix it then there are many possibilities that can cause a loss of color.
There some thing that you had done to get black and white on your tv with the dvd ,check your connections.if the connections are properly connected then the tv could be having a problem in the video input, have a tech look at it.
