Question about Zenith SY3538RK TV

1 Answer

Zenith SY3538RK takes several tries to turn on

I have a 35" Zenith cabinet tv that has lately been more difficult to turn on. It will click twice in succession, like on/off quickly, when I attempt to turn it on with either the remote or the power button. After many tries, it usually succeeds. Another symptom - when it first comes on, it appears to have not quite enough power - the picture wavers a bit and the colors aren't full. If I attempt to change volume or channel when it's in this state, it gets overwhelmed and shuts off. Within 30 to 60 seconds, it is fully warmed up and these symptoms disappear. Once on and warmed up, it works fine. My question is this - can I remove just the circuit board and bring it to a technician for service? Would they be able to bench test and/or diagnose it? Would sure be easier than lugging a 200 lb. cabinet and picture tube around!

Zenith 27inch B28A11Z keeps powering itself off

Hi Pswglaw,

From the way you describe the problem, it seems you have a high voltage leak. To check this, make the room dark and look into the back of the TV while turning it on. If you see something like lighting jumping around you have this high voltage problem. The TV will eventually destroy itself under this condition. I would suggest not using it until you get it repaired. The repair cost will be much lower if the TV is still working when you take it in. The high voltage leak will destroy more parts and cause the TV to stop working. Then it will blow a fuse.

Zenith system 3 tv will not turn on

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.
