    I was watching TV yesterday and out of nowhere, the TV turned off, started making poping noise. While I was unplugging the TV, I notice sparks was coming from the back of the TV. I unplug the TV, took off the back, plug the TV back up and notice the sparks where coming from the upper front side of the middle projection tube.

    I have this same problem could someone please tell me what i need to replace. I saw the arcing in the tv. I have experience troubleshooting dc circuits. I took the back off, and taped the wire from the flyback that was arcing to the tube/crt? anyway i have stopped the arcing but now have no picture, only sound. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have an old zenith sentry tv, and up to know has never had any problems. Afew days ago it started making a very loud noise as soon as I turned it on. It sounds like it's coming from the right

someone needs to open it but it sounds like a part arcing which was not uncommon in those sets====you would have to decide if you want to attempt to have it repaired----some shops will not repair a set that old and unless you really want it done---I would replace it.

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.
