Question about Zenith B32A24Z 32" TV

Fried remote control receiver? (Zenith B32A24Z)

Good evening,

I've got a Zenith B32A24Z that I bought 7-8 years ago, and it's been great. About a year ago, a mylar (silver) balloon came into contact with the front of the TV (maybe bridging the area between the screen and the remote receiver / control buttons on the bottom front of the TV.) We heard a small zap sound as the TV suddenly turned off. "Uh oh."

We waited a couple minutes, then turned the TV on again. Since then it has worked perfectly, showing all menus, tuning all channels, volume is good, picture is good, except that it cannot be controlled by a remote. (Neither the TV's own remote nor the Comcast remote will control it at all any more.) This is fine, and it's a good TV, but we'd like to change channels / volume remotely again, you know? :)

I think I've found the part for sale on the internet (hmm - at least, I had found it...) a whole control board with the channel-changer buttons, etc., but of course am not about to poke around inside there. Any thoughts about whether I've got the right idea? Is a TV repair shop going to be able to help?

Thank you!

Tom in Boston.

Invest in a long poking stick....... Either the Infrared receiver or controller it blew out. The high amount of static electricity formed and must of jumped off by the infrared receiver causing a momentary short in the circuit board. Safety's shut the tv down before frying, but damage looks to be done. It can be fixed, but only cheap if only the infrared receiver was damaged, anything else and it's going to be pricey.

Hi Keith,


First of all, thank you for posting your question here at Fixya.

My first advice is to confirm if the remote control is not the issue here and ensure that the fault came from the TV itself. Point directly your remote control's infrared emitter(Sensor) to your cellphone camera and then press any button key at the remote control, you will be able to see the flash of an infrared through your camera if the remote control is working fine. Watch the video below to have an idea how you gonna do this.



If you've confirmed that the remote control is not faulty, this is an indication that the problem is on the infrared receiver inside the TV. I would advice you to clean the TV's front panel infrared lens using a soft cloth, keep away all obstruction from the IR receiver, turn of the bright light in the room and check if the symptoms still persist. If yes, then the IR receiver inside the TV is already faulty and needs to replaced with a new one.

Yes it is definitely time for a new tv. If you live near a populated area just go on your local craigslist and you can get great used televisions for quite cheap. I have seen nice 36" tv's sell for 50$ and less.
Thank you and good luck,
