Question about Zenith B32A24Z 32" TV
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?

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.
