Re: Zenith Advanced System 3 not working

Your tv is in EYE PROTECTION MODE... NO JOKING... You might have damaged capacitors inside near the tv CPU and in the main power supply. Pleasecontact a good service tech for repair Patrick

TV blacked out but I can still hear the tv's tube go on and off. What's the problem?

There should be loose solder terminals at the horizontal output section circuit. Check it. Re-solder all the suspected solder terminals by applying little more solder to each of the terminals. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact any experienced service technician, or the nearest service center.

No power when television is turned on

1) test the outlet box and plug a desk lamp if work, if does the circuit is o.k if NOT reset the c.breaker from your home
2) test the power cord for open or break
3) see for a blown fuse inside and replace, or c.breaker tripped reset.
4) test for short in transformer+coil+filter+diode+rectifier and ground chassin.
5) test the Horizontal output for +125vdc +HVREC+FLYBACK+vertical output for 80vdc+all they go to the CRT. measure the color circuite +12vdc+other circuite+12vdc+audio 24vdc. see the block diagram oTHERWISE you must to the repair shop TV

Zenith television no color except when in the menue screens

The onscreen menu does not rely on the color circuit to produce a color menu.
The most common issues with that symptom are bad color crystal on the main board or a shorted transistor on the main board next to the video jungle IC

This is usually caused by the tuner which loses the chrominance part of the NTSC signal. Your did not say how you have it connected but it you try using a composite video input (yellow jack) and get the color OK than it must be the tuner which is not cheap but is worth having replaced.
Hope Ya Fix it!

Zenith advanced system 3, can't access video 1 or 2

I just got the TV for free with no remote and had the same problem.  The solution I found is to connect two devices that are feeding live signal (a VCR, DVD player, or game console) to the RCA connector input on the back of TV for Video 1 and Video 2.  I then used the first menu option which I accessed by using the Menu key on the front of the TV and Adjust and Select buttons to scan for channels and detect the band for the reciever to use.  After doing this I changed the setting away from "Fixed" (I forget which setting) and turned the TV on and off.  I then found that by pressing Menu several times I would get new menus.  Before I had done that scan with more devices attached to the other ports I didn't get any other menus.  I also discovered that depending on which devices I had connected I would get a Picture in Picture feature.  It would have its own menu to select its source, but I would lose that feature if I changed the device topography of my setup.

Color not working

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.
