Re: Old (1990s era) big screen TV problems
Hey I've got a 54 " Zenith I got for free, about a 1994 model, projection my folks bought it new.
It had your same issue, 3 times .
due to lightning , or underground power surge(from the underground house service )
Insurance covered some of the repairs.
There are 3 boards under the screen , one just needs repaired.
you got power, sound , no screen.
It cost me $285 at a local shop, it was well worth it.
they send the board out to a place out west and they do an exchange , and send you a rebuilt one.
Don't know how good your repair guys are out there, the guy I used is pretty cheap, but you drop it off at his business, to get it fixed at your house, you generally get hosed.
well good luck
you can do it yourself for half that. I didn't think I wanted to repair it myself, even if I knew which board was bad for sure, probably no return if you get it wrong.
