Question about GE 31GT740 31" TV

1 Answer

Green Lines Horizontally

My GE 31GT740 31" Television is about 3 years old. It has worked fine ever since i have bought it. About a month ago i noticed that there were about 25 lines about a millimeter thick, and about half an inch apart, going horizontally across the screen. Also, the screen is very bright and has a staticy touch to it. I turned off the television and kept it unplugged at the same time for 24 hours straight. I just cant seem to find a solution to this problem. Could you be ever so kind to help me out?

Yeppers its a g2 control on the flyback thats gone or drifted out of alighnment or the flyback its self.Try turning the g2 control dowm till those lines fade. If they wont go away then you need someone to check the Picture tube or its componets driving the crt.

The power comes on and then turns off and the front green power light blinks.

There is a small IC in the power supply section,
not the IC regulator that's the problem.

Is the tv that I have bought about 6 years ago ready for DTV?

6 year old tv probably not digital ready. The converter box will work if tv is on channel 3 and you use a UHF antenna. Most converter box connections have 75 ohm connectors, your tv may have the round connector to accept the input signal. If you have screw on terminals on the tv you will have to go to Home Depot or Lowes and get a matching transformer to go between the tv and the converter box. UHF antenna can be made out of a coat hanger. Just make a circle clean the paint off ends and attach. Or just buy a digital booster antenna at WalMart.

Blue,red,green lines on top of screen for couple months. Now tv wont work.

The foldover is because of a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. Given the "new" sympotom of a dead set, I would suspect that the vertical IC has failed. This should be a relatively simple repair for a TV shop. If you wish to attempt a repair of this yourself, update this and confirm your model number and I'll post more details and instructions.

Jvc 32" has grouping of thin white lines at top of picture extending 4" down from top of frame

It sounds like you have a bad capacitor in the vertical circuit. The circuit needs to be checked out by a technician. Stargazer
