In that set its usually a bad picture tube. The lines you are seeing are called retrace lines. You can take it to a shop and they may be able to rejuvenate the tube

When I turn my TV on, I have sound but only a horizontal white/color line across the screen. My TV is an old Zenith 25" floor model.


You can buy a new one for less than 200 bucks. I'd advise you do this. It sounds like you need a new

Color sudden change


Good day.
Your unit is still worth. It may be a caused of loose contacts along the circuitry. It can be remedied by resoldering the terminals particularly the chroma section and the crt circuit.

Tube set zenith tv


This is very typical of a Zenith set.Your picture tube will have to be replaced.One of your 3 primary colors (red,green,&blue) have turned off leaving you with the color of the dominant color.I would heave it.

Color Adjustments....


well it all depends on where the tv is located to, if it is in a room with little or no light( windows, lamps) you will want you brightness to be a lil lighter hince not makin the picture as dark, and vise versa for light rooms, u'll wanna turn the brightness down a lil bit to accomidate this room, as for the others i'd say a lil over 50% on them, thats how my office tv is set up, hope this helps, jason

Blueand dark when picture should be yellow and gold bright


Well there are many causes for this. In the back of your tv there are three different color projectors. One red, one green, one blue. One or more of them seems to be out of alignment. They can be adjusted but it is recommended to be done by a professional as there are transformers in the back near that area that create the high voltage current needed to run the color guns.

Green wave-like color distortion over reds


do you happen to have any speakers of any size within about 3 feet in any direction of the tv?? move them if so, I have large speakers about 5 feet from my tv at home and i still get some distortion once in a while with red and dark green streaks.
