Question about Zenith C27A24T 27" TV

1 Answer

Speakers have died?

Hi. Hope someone can help. I have a Zenith 27" regular tv about 12 - 15 years old probably. Works great until a couple of days ago. A huge screeching noise started while I was watching something. I changed the menu settings to mono speaker (from stereo) and the screeching stopped. Since then, I have got to turn the sound up a little more and there is a slight static white noise. Is this repairable? Or is it worth it? Thanks. K

Probaby the stereo decoder IC went bad or a supply voltage to it is too low or noisy. If it has audio output jacks on the back of the TV, connect it to an external amplifier and see what that sounds like. If it is ok in stereo or mono mode then the amplifier in the TV is bad. This will prove that the stereo decoder is ok.

16 yr old 25" Zenith..1st colors went yellow/lime now TV is dead

Absolutely not worth repair. You have described a classic symptom of Zenith picture tube failure, and about 99% of the time the main board in the TV is ruined as well. You've gotten good life from the set (manufacturers figure tube life is around 7 years these days), so it's time to replace it.

Zenith 27" TV

I sorry to say I think you have a component failing that is related to heat. 15 years is a long time and if the TV was used in hpot conditions over the years it may well be the proble, or it's just old.

T V sound

great ma ma- first of all if the tv was dropped,then there is a good chance that the pc board was damaged most likely a small crack near the audio section.This sort of repair is probably better left to someone with very good soldering skills. If you think you know someone,let me know I can help. cooltek Feb.15/08

Speakers

Tvs are wired differently these days. Your old Zenith for example probably had a selector switch that allowed you to change from internal or external speakers, bandpassing the audio from the internal amplifier to the audio out connectors. Your Sharp on the other hand may be controlled by customer menu to perform the same function as the external switch. Go into the menu and sub-menu of the audio and see if it gives you any choices for selecting internal or external speakers... If it doesn't it probably will not bandpass the already amplified signal, which means if you want to listen to your Tv on those external speakers you'll first have to pass the audio sample through an amplifier.
Hope this helps.

After 20 months old and now dead

I purchased this tv 2/06 and it went POP in 04/07. Less than 60 days after my warranty expired. Went back and forth with Zenith for several months. I refused to take NO for an answer. Customer service stinks and you have to be very persistent. They eventually agreed to fix it. Repairs cost over $2000 and I have my tv back. Next time it breaks just going to throw it out. Zenith sucks.
