Zenith Z19A11S Strange Trouble

I have a Zenith Z19A11S it has a very odd problem.  When you turn off the power the sound shuts off but the picture tube stays on you can't change channels or anything but it seems something isn't telling the picturetube to turn off... Any ideas?

It sounds like the main power

It sounds like the main power relay is not shutting off. This could be due to a relay that is stuck or the contacts are pitted and they sparked and welded together, or possibly, the relay driver transistor has shorted and not allowing the relay to turn off. Not really such a strange problem my friend. I have seen this a lot in a lot of different types of TV sets. This type of repair is not really for a novice to attempt to repair though. If you have no electronic solid state repair experience, or do not understand what I am saying, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Tell them you think it is a stuck relay, or maybe the relay drive transistor. Good Luck
