Question about Zenith IQB32B42W 32" TV

1 Answer

Zenith IQB32B42W 32" TV works sometimes but looses picture. Top half of picture goes blank (dark) and the bottom half scrambles into horizontal lines. I hear a pop or click right before this happens. The TV will go off if it happens for too long of a time. Some times unplugging and plugging the TV in again will cause the TV to work again. Any idea as to what is happening and is it worth fixing?

Capacitors can be deformed or some solderings on active components can be bad.
Amplitude change and image geometry want change when warming up, buy a canister cold spray and spray some components, Be careful when working at high voltages in the fly-back (horizontal) circuit by crt television, and tripler and Focusing voltage.

SOURCE: Auxiliary button on tv remote (I believe) needs off and I can't get figure out how...

The remote should have TV, VCR, AUX and maybe CABLE buttons at the top, one of which will light up when any button is pressed. Since it is a universal remote, the button at top lights up to let you know what mode it is in. If the AUX button lights up when any button is pressed, it means the remote is currently set to the AUX mode. To set it back to TV, simply press the TV button at the top. This puts the remote back in the TV mode and the TV button should now light up when any button is pressed. If that works and you are using a cable box with that set, then make sure the TV is on channel 3 by pressing 3 ENTER.

SOURCE: Horizontal lines across TV screen Panasonic CT-31SF13U

The problem sounds like a vertical deflection issue form what you describe.
On average they are usually in the simple repair categories. On average they would run in the $50 range if you take it to a reputable repair shop.
There are several possibilities
Bad capacitor (s)
Bad vertical IC
resistor in the power supply to the vertical circuit changing value

I have a Westinghouse SK-32H240S 32" flat screen


First when tapping changes the picture you have somewhere a bad connection; in electrical board or wiring.
When the screen goes blank after a while means some capacitor is bad/old.

Half screen picture


This is commonly caused by failing capacitors in the vertical deflection amp area and sometimes with the output drive devices.

An experienced TV tech can troubleshoot your set and service it for you.

Zenith Z25X22S 25" TV can't read scores at top or bottom


On the inside of the TV, there will be a knob with a RED cap on it, labeled vertial position. (it actually looks like a variable inductor)

With an allen wrench (possible 1/4) give it a half turn in either direction and see what happens. On the Z25x22S model, the vertical and horizontal position adjustments should be right next to eachother, but on the model i worked on, there was no variable pot for the horizontal position.

Hope this helps!

Sound and no picture


Hi, if your getting half a picture AND the other half is black the vertical circuit is failing, either solder is broken or vertical IC needs to be replaced, not a pricey fix, BMW Rider

1/3 of picture becomes partially scrambled


sounds like you have a frame fold-over fault, does banging the tv have any effect (slightly bang the set on the sides), if it does then its more than likely a dry joint, check all around the frame output chip, hope this is of some help to you
