They are labeled 561K 2KV, stands for 560pF (pico Farad) 2000volt.

You can easily get replacements from Digi-key, Mouser Electronics, Allied Electronics, Newark Electronics, and many other places. (sorry, your local Radio Shack doesn't have them.) I suggest that you get 2500-3500 volt as replacements as that's probably what they should have been in the first place.
At Digi-Key I found part number 490-4141-ND, 3.15KV replacements at $0.33 ea., the shipping will be the biggest part of the cost!

The sides of the picture are cut off. It's like trying to watch a wide-screen movie on a regular tv.

Check that the Aspect Ratio settings aren't left in Zoom. Maybe set to Full or 4:3, depending on the picture format.

Zenith tv model #A32B41W

You probably need to get into the Menu > Tuner Setup and set it for "Cable" instead of "Off Air".

Hope that helps...

Zenith A32B41W Ground

The 1000pF 2KV caps in the Zenith sets are notorious for burning up. I have seen it many, many times. The ground "plate" you describe is a dual spark gap, between the tuner ground and each side of the AC line. This part literally does nothing until a bolt of lightning hits very close to your house. Even if it shows signs of arcing, it is still good and does not need to be replaced, unless it has melted into a blob of goo and that never happens. The silver part you describe is the degaussing thermistor. It only works for the first half-second when the set is turned on, demagnetizing the picture tube. If you do not replace the thermistor, it is possible that when you move the set you will see that the colors are not quite right in the corners of the picture. If you are careful you can solder the legs back onto the thermistor, but they love to crack when heated with a soldering iron. Bring the broken one to your local TV shop and they will most certainly have many new ones in stock.
