The set isn't fully tuned into the channel the satellite receiver is outputting on (should be channel 3 or 4). If this set is old enough it may have a fine tuning adjustment that needs to be tweaked a little to clear up the problem. Some Zenith TV's also had a switch to select different tuning systems. If set incorrectly this might happen. If yours has such a switch, make sure it's set to "normal" or "air". It may also be that just due to age the turner isn't working properly.

It might be time to consider replacing that set. A new one would give you all the picture and sound quality your satellite can give you. Right now you're paying for quality you can't appreciate.

someone needs to open it but it sounds like a part arcing which was not uncommon in those sets====you would have to decide if you want to attempt to have it repaired----some shops will not repair a set that old and unless you really want it done---I would replace it.

Loud pop, black screen, Turned TV off unplugged, then restarted power light comes on for a couple seconds then turns red. TV is about 4 yrs. old.


That loud pop you heard was a capacitor on the power supply - if you have electronic experience - pull the rear panel and look for bulged/busted or leaking caps replace them if you have component level repair experience or replace the board if you do not - also dont kill yourself- tvs have enough voltage/amperage to kill humans.

Thanks,
Michael

Try turning off different lights near the room or in the room that it is in. Our tv does that if the overhead light in our bedroom is on, it's a room right next to our living room.
