    I'm having trouble with my old 27" Zenith Sentry 2. It will suddenly
    shut off. Often this is accompanied by a low whistling sound.
    Sometimes it can be switched right back on, But often it will often
    take a number of attempts. Each attempte results in a click and a
    flicker of light. This state can last for several minutes. More
    recently it will not respond at all, either to the remote or the on/
    off switch on the set itself. However, if I leave for 10 to 15 minutes
    it recovers. If I can keep it going for an hour or so, the problem
    will sometimes clear up. The picture an sound are fine, and all the
    other functions work properly. Can somebody give me an idea what the
    problem is, and whether it's worth fixing? Thanks in advance.

    So far it's probably just some dry solder joints, I'd start around the
    flyback and power supply. It's worth fixing if you can do it yourself,
    and if you quit using it so you don't damage it further.
