Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

1 Answer

Zenith Model SR3238RK horizontal lines

My TV is about 10 years old. There are horizontal lines about 3 ins. down from the top of the screen. It seems that these lines go all the way up to the top of the screen and then fold back down for abut 3 ins. The picture and color is still there but somewhat distorted. Is this worth fixing or do I need a new tv? This was an expensive console when I bought it. If this is fixable I would appreciate a part number and where to purchase it if that would be possible. Thank you.

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

My Sony trinitron tube Tv 36" seems to be going (its 10 years old

no ....the tube will end up after 20 yrs in 10 yr old sony...
it is worth if u fix it. randomly going black means...horizontal driver trans former is the problem..or any loose contact with the 110 volt supply to that transformer,,or any loose contact with line o/p transformer.. (horizontal driver transformer may be gone
then tv behaves like this) if any other parts gone tv wont come back.... there may be a loose contact call a service pro..

White lines & inverted picture at top of CRT TV image

This problem is normally the Vertical filter capacitors. You need to have them changed before it burns out the Vertical Chip.

Good Luck

Horizontal lines across the top 2 - 3" of the screen

Sounds like you have some capacitors that are needing to be changed in the vertical circuit. The cost I cannot quote but, it probably won;t be worth the cost as replacement TV's are much cheaper now. Zeniths and other brands for the longest time have used not controls inside the TV, they are technician adjustments through a service menu only.
