Zenith tv audio but no video

I have a 8 yr old Zenith 42 inch projection tv model number rz46zb3d8.
The color had been fading for over a month, then video went out. It maintains good audio.
Any ideas out there what might be the problem?

(the white stuff that surrounds the conduit for the cable's conductor) is mostly cored out leaving a large gap. When connecting signal feed, I have to jig...
