The dvd may be in the wrong format for your Son's t.v. PS3's play several formats that the lifestyle 38 may not be compatible with. You can download a video converter such as Any Video Converter and format the disc for whatever format you need. Probably mpeg2. Then it should play on most players.

If it's still under MFG. Warranty, get it replaced. If not, weigh the cost of repair vs. replacement. What has more than likely happened is the unit has seen either a "Brownout" severe voltage drop then spike to commence power, or a power surge. It's a very common problem with today's electronics of all kinds. It will either have a bad power supply or bad transistors and will range from $ 125.00 - $ 175.00 to repair on avg. When you have it replaced or repaired, make sure you purchase a good line conditioning surge protection unit like Monster, Panamax, or Furman. Not a power strip, that's just a glorified light switch. Sorry for the bad news! Hope this helps

Since not all devices have the same in/outputs available, if you are trying to interconnect them, it helps to know the make and model of both, not just one.

There are several possibilities to connect external devices to your 'home theatre' system.
The one we have delivers the best when S-video is used but that requires a separate path for sound.
The standard colors for audio in and outputs are red(=right) and white(= left) and often cables are supplied with the same color coding.

The usual connections will be named 'Line in' and 'Line out.' The outputs deliver specified voltage into a specified load (or termination) and the inputs expect that condition.
This ensures that volume controls act in a sensible manner.

It could be overheating, have you checked how warm it is? Is it in the open. Zenith systems seem to have a lot of problems associated with them

signs of a defective Filter Capacitor. I suggest you replace all capacitors in the Power supply and try.
