Zenith A25A23W tv - Powers up - Black screen, no sound

I was given a Zenith A25A23W tv. It powers on, but has a black screen and no sound. Tried both cable and video in rca connectors - no luck. All menu selections/choices do appear on screen in monochrome format and I can make menu changes (makes me think the CRT is getting power). When I perform auto channel scan, it comes back requesting to check cable connections! Can anyone provide any solutions or recommendations? Thanks, Ken B.

How to connect a 1999 zenith TV to a cable box and

Connet the output of the cable box to the DVD player and the TV out output of the DVD player to the TV (TV must be tuned to Channel 0, Chanel 3 or 4). You should be able to use the remote to switch between the DVD signal and the cable signal.

Hope it helps.

How can I make the picture size fit the screen? I loose picture around the edges. Seems like it is displaying at a larger size

The issue your having is aspect ratio. Some programs and commercials are broadcasting in a higher resolution so some fill the screen and some have black bars top and bottom. I suggest searching "aspect ratio for video". It would take me all night to type it out. But you need to know how the different resolutions change the size of your image. Also in the TV's menu you should see an aspect ratio option. Try the different settings to see if you can find the best.

Zenith 25" Color TV - Model A25A23W

Your problem is a bad connection on the CRT socket on the CRT driver board, a bad connection in the RGB driver supply from the video jungle IC or maybe even an intermittant Picture tube. the only way to tell would be to tap on the crt board while the sets playing with a non conductive insterment, and see if it changes. Now there is alot of HIGH VOLTAGE at this spot, so if you have no TV repoair experience Please stay safe and call in a pro to assist you. Good Luck Please dont forget to rate this thread.
