Question about Zenith B25A02Z TV

Zenith model SM3587BT mostly blue

Picked up a very nice condition, case wise, used Zenith SM3587BT. But the receiver sensitivity seems low, not a major problem, but the picture has a blue tint to it and cannot seem to adjust color any way in menu to get normal color on things. Any ideas, I am a licensed radio tech and know my way around HV radio equipment but TV's are a real pass time for me and I am still a bit of a novice. I do know the HV parts inside the TV and how to take precautions. I am assuming since I can get redish and blue colors that possible the green(?) gun is weak or out, or some control in need of adjust inside?
Let me know please.

Re: Zenith model SM3587BT mostly blue

I'm not sure of the model but most Zeniths of the 1990's the picture tubes would burn out soon. However there is one that has a transistor short usually from emitter to collector on the main board. Just trace the wire ribbon that go close to the big chip on the main board. There close to the chip are three driver transistors in a row and one of them could be shorted from emitter to collector usually. Use the number on the transistor and put prefix 121 dash and the number to cross it out. I think not sure but it may be a NTE 159 PNP. I have changed many but the picture tube is not like new after changing. If this is not the model then you probably have weak green gun in tube. Hope this helps.

Lost my remote for my zenith tv model #H2530Y lists 2 remotes for the H2530Y. They do not have either of the original remotes in new condition. They have a used version of the Guest remote.

They also have the substitute remotes for both. The substitute Master remote (which will program the TV) is here: . The available guest remote is here: . The substitute remotes should match all of the functions of the original equivalent remote.

I hope this helps.

No picture, Horizontal line center of screen

Can be a case of vertical collapse. If this is the case, then the vertical oscillator and/or the vertical driver circuit are faulty. .

You can take you problem directly to zenith. They have a customer service post available here

Need remote code for zenith tv model c13a02d

remote code don't go by model, you get a list of codes and you just try them one at a time until one works, here are the most up to date remote codes for a Zenith are the three digit codes
101, 142, 149, 177, 241, 345.
remember all universal remotes have code search, so if none of these seem to work do the code search function, it is outlined in the user manual of your remote.

Blue menu screen stays on

Hi! the blue menu screen can be turned off by pressing the same button that caused it to appear. In most cases pressing the "Menu" button on the remote or TV-control will make the blue menu screen disappear..

Video noise at bottom of screen

Try adjusting the tracking on your VCR. This symptom would typically be caused by a slight tracking error in your VCR or video heads that need to be cleaned. Your Zenith TV may be a little more sensitive to video synchronization problems than your other TV is.

If VCR tracking adjustments have no effect on the symptom, then the problem could be in the TV, but I'll need more details to assist you with troubleshooting. For example, how do you connect the VCR to the TV?

Picture Shortens, Converges, eventually the set shuts off - $50 for Correct Solution

Open the TV amd turn it on in a position you can see the picture, possibly through a mirror. Now gently tap all of the metal heat sinks on the circuit board until you find the one that is sensitive it will have a small chip mounted vertically on it, with probably like 7-10 pins. The number on the chip will most likely be an "LA****" number. Now turn the circuit board (UNPLUG FIRST) over and resolder the pins. This is your problem 99% of the time. Be very careful there is High Voltage inside this TV.
