My Zenith tv model c27v36 went black while in use. The power indicator will come on but still black screen. Pushing any other button turns it off again. Is there any hope?
It apparently is powering on but nothing else happens. It is possible some random buttons on the remote were pressed when it went black.

If I recall right, there is a main color chip that runs hot and seems to be a major video problem. Open the back of the set and look for this chip. It's about 4 inches long, 2 inches high and 1/2 inch thick. It's black. When you find this devise, look closely if it has a crack in it or looks as though it's been overly hot. If you do change this chip, make sure you use lots of heat sink compound(grease) on the back when reinstalling, as the heat sing grease is what causes this problem as it gets old it hardens and doesn't transfere heat as necessary.If I can be of any more help, please email me at [email protected]
