Question about Zenith Televison & Video

1 Answer

1960 (approx.) b & w floor model TV sound suddenly doesn't work.

This TV has a vertical volume wheel, and the sound was fine until a few weeks ago, when I unhooked the VCR from it (the VCR wouldn't eject a videocassette tape). Maybe this was a coincidence, or maybe I inadvertently loosened some internal wires when moving the TV a little bit. How can I get the sound back? It's extremely faint now! Thanks.

What you're describing is common when the center LED has failed / gone out. If you're really good at taking a unit like this apart and putting it back together - and not too bad with a solder stick you could attempt this one yourself... It is a pretty intensive repair but not difficult for a good shop just time consuming. The part isn't too expensive either, just an infared LED... In fact, we've run a bit short on stock once in awhile and bought one of the off the shelf versions from Radio Shack which worked just fine. Good Luck Bill

The remote has an input button that will switch it to video mode. Most stores sell the rca / ge replacement remotes.

SOURCE: TV shuts off after few minutes

tap it on its side then try to turn it on and see if it stays on if it does bad solder connections

TV Picture reduces to a narrow horizontal bar


The vertical sweep output section circuit to your TV has the fault. Might be an IC failure, or with some loose solder points at the solder terminals to this IC. As it will be very difficult to detect the exact dry-solder point, it will be best to resolder all the suspected solder terminals to this vertical output section, by applying a little more solder to each terminals, without making any solder bridge short in between adjacent solder terminals.

I have Onida TV Model 21 inch , I accidentally enable the features of volume lock, hotel mode and channel lock and I cannot reset the same. Due to this, I cannot increase volume of telivision


MIGHT WORK IF YOU:
Turn off tv with remote, that is standby, then turn off tv with switch or unplug from wall. Wait a few minutes until led lights go off on tv. plug tv back in. try pushing vt on remote and power button on tv at same time.
If this doesn't work try contacting a local retailer, they always have a list of codes for their salesmen.

Sounds like you got a tank of bad gas. That would easily cause your issues. Start by draining as much as you can, put a can of Seafoam in there, add a few gallons of fresh gas, drive to the gas station and tank up, and run that tank down until your gas light comes on before adding more. You may end up needing a fuel filter or plugs again, but with minimal run time on the bad gas, you'll probably be fine.

Audio volume level


Hi, I'm guessing your turning up the volume on the TV box to control the volume of your speakers. By doing this your only controling the audio strength coming out from the TV box.

What you should be doing is turning up the volume on your TV or amp feeding your speakers rather than the direrct TV box. The level of the speakers may have been reduced form last week (other people messing about with your equipment?) which is the reason why you have to turn it up to 30 rather than 10.

Another problem could be a loose audio connection from you direct TV box to your amp or TV. Have you tried a different source such as a DVD player, and does the sound on that seem alot quiter than before? If the volume of this is alot quiter also it could be a problem with your speakers.

Hope this helps.

Audio fade


if there is no problem with the surround sound, you have a problem with the volume regulation circuit or with the main amp of this TV set, But to say the least is you have a backup to fix your problem, with the sound system, you said it works fine. this could run ya about 250 to 400 to repair. Good luck.
