Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Have a 10yr old 37" Zenith, went dark and emits a buzzing noise and see smoke from something frying (seems to be from lower right side as you look at the back of the set). A lot of dust build up over the years (hasn't really been moved, exterior cleaned only) Going to take in for service, does it sound like it might be the picture tube or probably a short somewhere? Anyway an electrically challenged person such as me can tell the seriousness of the problem?

The flyback transformer has a short inside of one of the windings and needs to be replaced. This part if still available will be in the $75 range. This set may not be worth the repair cost. If you want to get more specific costs, please post the exact model number from the back of the set.


Thanks,
Dan

HELP! Olevia lt37hvs screen went blank. No Sound, panel buttons wont work. Backlight is only on on half of screen.


if you had audio i wold say its most likely the Tconn or its upper two connections to the Panel itself. But since you dont have any sound either I would assume its either the LVDS cable from the main board to the Tconn or the Main board itself as audio and video are produced on the main board, You can get replacement boards from www.tvrepairworld.com

TV made a poping noise and the screen went dark. Turns on but there is no image and wont turn off.


a capacitor on the DM or convergance board has fried and will need to be replaced. You can use a multi-tester or capacitor tester to test each one. Also look for black burn marks and swelled or black capacitors

10yr old bryant 90 series


Something is shorted out somewhere in the system.

You will have to trace down each component to find the short if it can't be found with a visual inspection.

Does the board have a low voltage fuse on it?

Zenith A27B41W


I dont see this model number under PTS corp list of Zenith's modules. But a service manual is available from http://www.servicemanuals.net For a download. If you know how to work on solid state electronics, then you should have no problem with this repair. If your a handi person, a TV set is no place to be experimenting around inside of as it can seriously kill you. Find a trined tech to assist you with this. Good Luck
