Question about Zenith A32B43W 32" TV

1 Answer

Watching TV and then POP!

We were watching TV just a half hour ago and a big white, vertical light came onto the screen and then a pop. A whining sound proceeded and then clicking occurred. Thin white smoke appeared from the top of the TV and an acrid electrical smell filled the house. The TV did not respond to the power off on the remote. If the TV is plugged in again, the whine and clicking occur. I have had the TV for 8 years.

Is it time for a new one or repair?

Also, does home owner's insurance cover incidences like this?

Thank you,
Mike

I have white lines at the top half of screen


If a regular set this is a vertical circuit problem---either a filter cap (called feedback cap) or the vertical output chip.

seems you have several issues which intail the vertical circuit as well as the vertical drivers or weak and usually you will have about 3 bad capacitor and 1 diode out in that set.. also your horizontal driver is weak !! and fixing to pop!

Vertical lines appear on the screen.


It appears like there is a bad capacitor in the horizontal circuit. Try to put a fan near the ventilation trap, just for a test.
the part cost almost nothing but having someone to your house is expensive.
Your decision.

Its is a cold solder joint on the board. The board is the one located at the bottom right of the tv when looking at the rear. Mine did the same thing. After refreshing mose of the large solder pints on the board, it stopped. Hope this helps!
