Hi, I bought this tv ( Zenith 36inch System 3 sy3538rk ) with the house i just moved into, had it running for about 3 months. One morning it just stopped working, will not turn on. I left it unplugged for two days, just tried it again, nothing, wiht the remote or on the front of the tv, it's dead Jim.... any suggestions, the picture was great, no sound problems.. kinda bummed out..
I'd say just get a stereo system (amplifier) or something like that, and hook your cable box, vcr, converter or whatever you have right into that. That's what I've been doing for years. Most cable boxes and satellite boxes will control the main volume that goes to the sound output, or you can get a digital stereo with a remote to control the volume that way.

Hi, Sorry it took someone so long to get back to you, but nobody likes to give bad news. This tv has a 1.7R tube with 530 resolution and an NTSC tuner which means it is analog and with the new change this month you would need a converter box anyway unless you have cable or satellite. Because of this particular tube and the labor to change it, it would indeed more expensive to replace it than buy a new one. Best of luck to you!
It's a Zenith remote, MBR 3440 is the model #, 124-202-01 is the part #. To program, press and hold PRG button until red light stays on, press TV,AUX etc, enter 3 digit code (www.xdiv.com) press Enter.
Technician just replaced the upper right (from the back) circuit board that conects to the panel. TV now works fine. I bought the display model 8 months ago with extended Circuit City Warranty for $1000 so I can't complain. This was covered entirly by LG/Zenith (nicest Cust. Svc. ever) so we'll wait and see what happens.
check to see if your t.v. is connected to your cable if it is connected properly and you are sure that every thing is connected .call a tech to repair the t.v. the problem could be in the tuner or IF circuit.good luck.
tv is not a toy it has hazard high voltage parts and you can't remove boards without discharge it and high voltages
if you are familiour with so then do it
but for the fault you have it is quiet clear that you got a dried up capacitors in the power suply board you have to cange 3-5 capacitors in it and evry thing exactly will work perfect
i did 4 replacement capacitors for a friend same type and it is fine
