    I have an old Zenith TV that has been flashing red for awhile now. However, today it turned red and wouldn't turn back to normal. It eventually did then turned back again. I know it is an ancient TV, however, I can't afford a new one for awhile so I was wondering if there is some minor wrong (probably not) for my ancient TV.

    -same thing happened to my 27 inch zenith that was like 12 years oldish, but mine turned green. basically from what i understand from the tech guy is that atleasst 1/3 the color tube went out (leaving you with the 2 other primary colors). depending on the tv shop you take it to, it will run you $120 to get it fixed(thats a low ball estimate).
    - umm another guy i talked to who had an old zenith said he just banged on the side and it would start working again, eheh but i wouldn't reccommend it
    -i was sad too it had a great picture, im just saving up to pick up that 27 inch akia from sams soon.
