1993 Zenith AVI 36" TV

When I turn on the tv, the screen goes green (with some horizontal lines) for a few seconds ( very quickly) and then the green merges to the center into vertical line and the screen then goes blank. Meanwhile all other functions are fine, sound, tuner, etc.

Is this something that could be repaired or this set destined for the electronic recovery yard?

Most likely the fly-back transformer is failing, you can take it in and get an estimate to decide if it's worth the cost of the part and labor.

but my guess is that you may be better off getting a new TV

Hope this helps
thanks for the rating

When I switch my tv to the HDMI input it appears to be normal for a few seconds but the screen stays black and I get a thin pink line running horizontally across the bottom right corner of the screen then...


You did not mention what you are connecting with HDMI but I have had problems with my PS3 and it is copy protection related. On a PS3, you have to connect it to HDMI1 otherwise some BlurRay movies will not play.
You might have a bad HDMI cable. I have heard the quality of cable does not matter these days but I still have had issues with the really cheap cables. I still do not buy the really expensive HDMI cables though.

Zenith tube tv has thin white lines but no picture and I can hear audio


Hello jreese, Hi, Most definitely its a horizontal output problem, your tv has no horizontal deflection to pull the screen vertically, the power transistor that produces the high voltage is bad, this needs to be replaced. definitely you always have sound, the audio section is a separate block from the high voltage block, go look for a technician to have this checked.

TV turns on with a green screen with curved horizontal lines.


It seems you may have a serious problem with your video board. That's why you are getting those symptoms. It's better if you replace it asap!

RCA F36674ET - Only beeps when turned on


Clearly shows problem in deflection area both horizontal and vertical section. Horizontal lines is due to vertical section problem and making bbzzzz is due to horizontal output transistor short and sometimes LOT SHORT.
