When I plug in my 36" Zenith TV the screen stays black, a clicking and popping noise comes from the back and I smell acrid smoke like from an electrical fire. What is going on, and is it repairable?

Caution: Never power on the TV set again until this fault is retified.
It is anode arcing takes place inside the TV. Its final anod cap is arcing with neighboring surroundings. A smoke like fume along with a foulin smell will be there. It is repairable. Its Line Output Transformer [LOT] shoud be replaced with similar type and number. Before connecting the anode cap to the final anode of the picture tube, cleen the anode hole and surrounding area with some sort of cleaning solvent [we uses pure turpentine for that purpose], throughly, and wipe it out to dry out well.

2004 Chrysler Voyager, had an acrid burning smell and a lot of smoke when heater is turned on, also a rattling/squealing noise, all stops when heater turned off?


you more than likely have a sciezed air con compressor. most modern cars have climate control which uses air con even when demisting and when engaged the electric clutch tries to engage but the pump itself will not turn, clutch will get red hot and burn your belts

Zenith TV won't turn on


Not really a solution but i have the problem with mine< opened it up and it's part number 38-102 or ex3401 which appears to be a open fuse by the AC in on the board. When I bridged the open, melted gap it turned on, smoked, and melted again with a spark so be that as it may there's got to be something going on here that can't be too hard to fix but the repair man will make more on the sale of a new tv than fixing the old.

High pitch squeeling noise/no picture.


your problem is due short circuit in horizontal section of  tv

your problem & smell is due to horizontal section failure.

in that section

1 flyback transformer & horizontal output transistor might be faulty.

but remember to check power supply is normal other wise it may fail again.

for skilled technician it is not a major problem &easy to fix at fair cost.

good luck.

Screen blacked out, no sound or pix


The set had a bad vertical output IC and when the IC heated up it took out something in the power supply. Most likly in the sweep supply, that supplys the voltage to the vertical IC. If your not a tech, Please call one, as A TV set is not a place to experiment with. A good tech may even be able to repair the module as Zenths are made to replace the entire board when theres a service problem.. Go to http://ptscorp.com, click on technical assitance then finding the board you need by putting in the model # and this will come up with the board price to give you an idea on the replacement cost for parts and see if you want to invest that as well as the labor cost. Good Luck
