Zenith d65w25 65 in red green colors offset

This is a convergence problem and can be as simple as poor solder connections or defective convergence ICs. Please verify the model number and whether or not you wish to attempt the repair and I will provide additional details and instructions.

16 yr old 25" Zenith..1st colors went yellow/lime now TV is dead

Absolutely not worth repair. You have described a classic symptom of Zenith picture tube failure, and about 99% of the time the main board in the TV is ruined as well. You've gotten good life from the set (manufacturers figure tube life is around 7 years these days), so it's time to replace it.

Picture Problem

In that set its usually a bad picture tube. The lines you are seeing are called retrace lines. You can take it to a shop and they may be able to rejuvenate the tube

Green screen

No! that is difinitely not an easy fix. there is something wrong with the picture tube. it is the part that emits light and colors. you need to bring that to a local repair shop.

hope this helps.

Zenith A25A11D No Red Color

Hi, If you are comfortable working with a soldering iron, a continuity (VOM) multi tester and a fair knowledge of electronic components, then perhaps you can repair the missing color red. You have to open the unit, expose the small printed circuit board that is attached to the small end of the picture tube. There will be many components present but you will need to focus yourself on three (3) transistors that are bigger than the others sometimes with an aluminum heatsink. It is also possible that instead of 3 transistors you will have one power IC. In any case these control and provide the drive for the 3 colors of your picture tube: red, green and blue. One of them is either dead or suffers from cold solder to any or all of its pins/legs. You have to visually inspect the solder joints of these big transistors/IC and determine if any is dull in color, loose of simply not connected. You may even try the shotgun approach and solder each of the pins/terminals/legs just as long as you don't cross solder creating a short between pins/legs. If this works, you're set, if not: You have to check with the use of the VOM and determine which of the 3 transistor is defective. If you are familiar checking continuity of base to collector to emitter and reverse, again you're set, if not perhaps you check all three and compare which have the same reading from the same position and which is different. Pls keep in mind the transistors have forward and reverse bias readings. If able to determine defective component, desolder, replace and solder. If it were an IC, replace the entire pack. If the above would make you uncomfortable, pls ask for the services of a qualified TV repair man and explain your problem. Hope this works out for you and give you some ideas. Pls post again how things turn up, good luck and kind regards.

My T.V. has no color red

If your TV is the type that has a picture tube,the picture tube itself could have gone bad. Also one of the picture tube driver circuits may have messed up. A number of things can cause this to happen. You'd need to take it to a shop and get an estimate for repairs. Hopefully you can find a shop that will give you a free estimate. Stargazer

Loose Picture (Goes completely Black)

Nothing special about that board as I cant seem to find that # but If my memory serves me correctly it sounds like a crt board and its a simple soldering job on the crt socket?? Altough Im not there to see the set still 550.00 seems like an awfull lot to repair a set even if they have to replace the entire chassis. I think you should cal rca and take it to an authorized RCA repair center and if the shop you took it to was an rca authorized center I would also report that to them(RCA). Good Luck

Pink screen

Is your grey scale or Black and white programming pink?? Thats an indication that the green and blue grids on the picture tube are week or that the red is over driving. First thing is take off the back of the set. Find the end of the picture tube and look at the printed curcuit board there. see if you can find and red drive controls there. Put on a black and white pic and ever so slowly rock that red drive control a little at a time till the picture looks almost normal.. If you get it to be a little \less pink then stop right there but if it starts to get a bit green or blue then try rocking those controls all back and forth till you get the bese B&W picture you can BUT BE VERY CAREFULL as there is alot of voltage on this picture tube and if your not carefull it will bite ya. Now dont be too critical as the tube is a bit weak so you probably wont get a perfact grey scale so if after a while live with it or get a new set. Good Luck.
