Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

Zenith TV I have a Zenith 27" color TV made in 1989, model #SF5765H. Recently, the picture started to shrink and expand from the sides of the screen. It is intermittent, but happens often. Can it be fixed without too much cost, or should I buy a new one?

Screen is cutting off the sides

That is an ITC008 chassis and the problem you're referring to is called a breathing picture. One fault I am aware of in this chassis/model is the connector Bl103. I have seen a couple where the connector failed and had to be replaced. Could open it up and locate the conntector and see if it's vibration sensitive.

Since you can bang it to heal it some, try checking for cold solder joints. Caps and IC's next. Careful TV's store up to 3000 K volts unplugged. Enuff to kill.
