Question about Zenith IQB55M90W 55" Rear Projection Television
We have a model PVY5265DT manufactured Sept, 1996. Have NEVER had any probs until a few mos ago. The picture began getting really fuzzy (convergence doesn't help) and now the sound is becoming intermittent- about every 10-15 mins it seems to freeze for a minute w/o sound. Is there any hope for it? We've certainly gotten our money's worth, just hate to give it up.
This is just a sign that your TV is going to die soon. Happened with us too. You can get it temporarily fixed but it will last only like another year. The best idea would be to go buy a new TV. But if you don't want to buy a new one, go the Zenith support website. http://www.zenithservice.com/index_b2c.jsp To contact them click contact us on the top of the page. Hope this helps. :)

You are most likely getting bad capacitors in the main power supply as well as the sweep power supplies. Looking at the age of this unit, the cost to replace the power supply, it will cost you about 350 to 450 to repair this set. You MAY ALSO need to replace the High voltage/ sweep board as well. The best way to properly tell would be to call out a factory authorized Zenith repair center. They should have all the boards available to test the TV with. That would also be a bit more to repair. In my opinion, the cost would not justify the repair. Good Luck with your TV set.
