TV has multiple images and flickers, images are not centered and different sizes? What is wrong?
Subject: Zenith B31A24Z 32'' TV
So it was made in 2000 and has been fine for the most part. Currently when you turn it on, the image will be flickering three overlapping images. Then it will "warm" up and start acting normal. But change it to another channel and it does that flicker thing again. It's now to the point will it will never go normal or rarely does,
Does anyone know how to fix this or know what the problem could be/cost?

Re: TV has multiple images and flickers, images are not...
Multiple image is usually a result of transmission problem. The signal from your local station gets transmitted two ways, by tower and cable. If the tv receives them both at seperate times it will create an overlap or shadow effect. I would try a small power booster on it, if not a service man may have to adjust the internal circuits.

In general, for best image quality and bestexperience you need 32 inches TV for every three meters. For example if in yourliving room your distance from the screen is 6 meters the recommended foryou is 64 inches. I've attached a table with exact s and ranges for yourconvenience Screen Viewing distance range 26" 3.25 - 5.5 feet 32" 4.0 - 6.66 feet 37" 4.63 - 7.71 feet 40" 5.0 - 8.33 feet 42" 5.25 - 8.75 feet 46" 5.75 - 9.5 feet 50" 6.25 - 10.5 feet 52" 6.5 - 10.8 feet 55" 6.9 - 11.5 feet 58" 7.25 - 12 feet 65" 8.13 - 13.5 feet 70" 8.75 - 14.75 feet
The continuous advance speed is approximately 2 fps (frame per second), but actual speed may vary depending on the subject or according to the selected image size. The maximum number of images that the camera can capture continuously is as below.
Super Fine, RAW: Not available
(Image size: 2560x1920 / 1600x1200 / 1280x960 / 640x480)
On the other hand, the UHS (Ultra High Speed) achieves up to 7fps continuous capturing. The maximum number of images that the camera can capture continuously is as below.
- Image Size is 1280x960 (SXGA) only.
- AF, AE and White Balance are locked for the first frame in the series.
- 1/8s or faster shutter speed is automatically selected.
- Digital subject program is unavailable.
When the camera is at an angle to a business card, document, whiteboard, or other rectangular subject, one side of the subject in the recorded image may appear longer than the side opposite from it. This is called "keystoning," which is caused by the difference in distance from the camera lens to each side of the subject. The side of the subject that is closer to the camera looks longer and the side further from the camera looks shorter. Using the camera's Business Shot Mode automatically eliminates keystoning and gives a normal shape to rectangular subjects. Though the Business Shot Mode is able to eliminate the effects of moderate keystoning, certain conditions may make automatic keystone correction impossible.
Also note that the maximum Business Shot Mode image size is 1600 x 1200 pixels. If you have the camera configured to record larger size images, recording with the Business Shot Mode will produce a 1600 x 1200 size image. When the camera is configured to record images smaller than 1600 x 1200 pixels, the Business Shot Mode will produce images in accordance with the currently specified image size.
