Lit up pixels on zenith crt tv when turned off

I recently grabbed an old zenith crt tv off of the curb to use with my atari and i am having an issue. the tv works fine but sometimes when it is turned off, some of the pixels in the center of the screen are illuminated and it will spread to surrounding pixels until i turn it on again. Even when it leave it unplugged, they stay illuminated. as of now it isn't much of an issue but i am curious about why this happens. thank you for any answers you can give me

Switch OFF SPOT; is the problem. The most probable cause to this is with the smoothing capacitor used at the Video Output supply voltage. Contact any service technician to locate and replace this capacitor. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts.

Samsung LCD seperated pixels


Though this is evidently a problem within the TV, just try changing the input device to some other like a DVD player and see. Look for any loose contacts in RC jack, cable and socket, as intermittent contacts can bring such funny looking problems, as the TV does not get time to recover from the making/breaking time. If problem persists, I recommend you call in a qualified service technician, as opening the back cover by others is not advisable.

Try switching to a different channel. The Atari 2600 supports channels 2 and 3, you want to pick the one that is not broadcasting in your area. If your TV has "auto-tuning" you may need to manually add channel 2 or 3 (whichever you pick) to see it on the TV.

Bought an atari 2600 and an adaptor for my tv still no picture. also it turned my tv to blk and white. where should i start?


If you are using a digital tv you need the lastest up dated rf switch for atari2600
and plug it into a VCR or A DVD player and it will work that way but if its on a CRT tv style just use the rf switch then no special set ups on CRT style tvs.

There is a 99% chance that your TV does have remote control capability but it could be broken. You might try using the codes from another brand of TV such as RCA, Magnavox, Funai to see if those codes work, otherwise it might be time for a new TV.

Samsung HD tv help


Is it a Plasma Television? I recently had a customer have the same issue with a 2 year old model Samsung 50" plasma TV. In his case one Of the computer panels failed. He didn't have a service plan and the warrenty was out, so i directed him to Samsungs help line. They inturn directed him to a authorized repair center. Repairs were roughly $800. Thats a possibility but it may not be the same as your issue. Try leaving your TV running for a little while when it has the issue, and see if it eventually goes away. Some older plasma models have started to require a warm up time for the pixel cells. This has been a down fall of plasma that for the most part no longer exists on newer models.
I hope eveything works out.

Have a great day
