Re: 1988 zenith t.v.

At almost 20 years old, you are best off replacing it. Parts may be scarce for an almost 20 year old unit.

How do I remove and replace a Picture tube in a Zenith Tv.

a picture tube you may be able to get from Zenith. Honestly this tube would probly cost you the same as sending the tv to a E-waste event and picking up another. may just not be worth the money to replace.

I have a 15 year old Zenith console, SL2737RK, lost vertical defl

You need to resolder the vertical IC and replace any electrolytic caps in the same immediate area. If you can find someone with electronics experience they know what I'm saying....It can be repaired.

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.

Blurred picture and it's also dark rear projection zenith Z52Z95D

I'd get the lamp replaced for sure. If it has a ballast - change that at the same time. However, a Zenith repair center should be able to tell you whether it's worth doing or not.

I do not have a Zenith B25A02Z TV. What I do have is a 1988 Zenith Color TV SE2517P. I called a local tv repairman and discussed the problem over the phone. He can take a look at it if we bring it in (service call to the home cost $100 just to show up). He said it was worth fixing since he thought it was only the sound. We have a great picture. He charges $20 to look at it but we have to leave it. He lives 20 minutes away one way. We think it is worth the trip if we can get it loaded into our minivan. We live in western NY where the weather can get pretty ugly many days. I will post the solution later when I know. FYI

Picture is dark

Does not seem like a bad tube alone. Could also be that the Video output Transistors Supply Filter capacitor having dried out. It is a 100mfd 160V capacitor, which on replacement will improve the brightness of the immage. And yes, you could also try increasing the heater voltage (Filament Voltage)of the Pictuire tube, this will definitely increase brightness, but will reduce the life of the Picture tube. You gotta think - 10 year old TV, should I repair or exchange and get a new one???
