Zenith picture problems

I have a 27in Zenith, has always been a good tv my problem now is that there is about a 2in black space on the top and it seem like the picture that should be there is reflected down and makes the top appear backwards. If that makes any sense. It looks lighter and if there are words they are backwards.

I took the back cover out and cleaned it, tons of dust made no difference. But as I was dusting and wiping I moved some adjustments in front of the tube. There are 6 of them and they rotate around, seems to be color-tint-up-down.
Now I have created another problem, when I use the guide the words are blurry and try as I may I can not get it just right again. Other than that the picture looks right.

Your TV is showing signs of age. It's displaying something called "vertical foldover" which is due to capacitors in the set's vertical output section that need to be replaced. These failed parts can stress the vertical output integrated circuit, and if that goes bad your picture will collapse to a thin horizontal line. The capacitors themselves (usually 3 or 4 need to be replaced) are pretty cheap. A TV shop in your area (if there are any still around!) could fix it and the repair should be under $100.

By moving those rings on the tube's neck (which is actually the back) you have messed up the set's convergence. Those rings are magnets which adjust the electron beams in the tube so the red, green and blue images line up correctly on the tube face. The rings are often marked with a stripe after adjustment to show how they were lined up. Look carefully at them and see if there are any marks you can go by to reset them. To properly converge the set some equipment is needed to generate the adjustment test pattern. Again, a shop could do it for you.

All things considered, at this point you might seriously consider replacing the set. Not because the troubles aren't fixable, but because other parts can start failing because of age, and by now your picture tube is on borrowed time as well.

Zenith 44" LCD TV


The yellow spot is due to the BLUE LCD and/or lens assy cracked, reason, to much HEAT! The blue is the darkest color and hold the most heat, so it goes first, always! In some cases it’s only the lens, however most of the time LCD is damage to. Parts are available, however install and alignment is timely. Quick fix is the complete light engine, which for model# E44W46LCD is part# 3141VSN916C, which customer cost is $1,449.27, wholesale for about $1,065.21. Rebuilt, if you can find it around 850.00 to 950.00. However the rebuilt does not always look as good as factory. My advice, TRASH set. This part will fail again in about 3 to 4 years, unless you watch a lot of white video. Remember, on a black or dark picture, all three LCD are blocking 100% of the light, causing extreme heat within the light engine. It’s a bad design.

Black Shapes Encountered on TV Screen


your problem is in the horizontal sweep and its called blanking. it happens on mostly zeniths sets as Ive seen it a few times and the only waty to fix it is to replace the entire chassis as there are no parts for zenith available just the module as a complete assy. Basicly, The blanking is suppose to only blank the top and the bottom of the fields of the screen that you don't see but it misfires and causes all sorts of lines, squares, and boxes on the screen. When i first was told of this problem i thought the same exact thing?? About the closed caption but the set came into the shop and didnt do the problem. I thought the customer was seeing things. Then finally on night late I CAME BACK TO THE SHOP TURNED ON THE BENCH AND THERE IT WAS!!! i SAW IT WITH MY OWN EYES!! I replace the Module and all was good. Thge repair was about 175 bucks. Good Luck in your repair. Oh this should not be attemted by a handi person, as there is dangerous high voltage inside these sets.
