Turning itself off and snowy picture

Hello I am hoping someone can help. I have recently aquired the above TV for very cheap and I am hoping I can fix the problem myself, but I have never done anything like this before :0) My new little project! The TV keeps switching itself off into standby mode after about five minutes. It is very eay to get back on but will go off again very soon. Also when tuning in the best picture to say the least is very snowy. I have entered the service mode after a bit of research on the net and come up with the error code of 5 11 0 0 0. Any ideas of where I go from here would be of great help. Please remeber though I am a novice at this kind of thing and will need it explained in the best possible laymens terms!!! Thanks you.

Re: Turning itself off and snowy picture

Problem is build up on the cathodes and when the reach maximum temperature they cause a short between heater and cathodes .also possible g2 and cathodes short circuit.One way is to separate the heater circuit H1,H2 and use a transformer or build a coil on the line output transformer (3 times not shore read up for it) and u will get 6v for the heater.Read this it will help even if is for other problems. Good luck

Snowy picture

The remote doesn't effect the channels, I would say you have poor signal or interference from another device nearby.

When i turn on the tv its norman picture but about 5minutes the picture will snowy what is the problem of that? tnx hope u help me

A snowy picture after warmup is either in the set or not.

What you may want to do to begin with is hook up a DVD player or something else to ONE OF THE VIDEO INPUTS ON BACK OF SET this will narrow it down to the tuner or the front end of the set.

If A/V hookup works you always have the option to hook the output of the cable or sat box to those same kind of rear connections- bypass the tuner and front end signal circuits completely.

As it only happens when on a short time not likely to be a hookup or bad connection there but check them anyway.

If using a box of some kind run the cable or sat direct without it--bypass the box to rule it out.

Last is if tuner in set is bad it would have to be removed and or rebuilt/replaced---not cheap parts and labor

Have dish network and power went out in my town and now tv is snowy. dish cust. asst person said it didnt seem like it was on the right cable/uhf

Hello, I hope you have gotten this resolved, but in case you haven't or have more questions about it, here's some simple steps. You can follow this link to our website, where you will find troubleshooting for no picture on the tv. Follow those steps, and you will be good to go.

With the cabling, I would go ahead and try to unplug the cable from the back of the receiver then replug them. Sometimes, if you have had a power surge, it can go through your cables, and cause them to no longer work, giving you the snowy screen, so if none of these steps work, I would try to replace that cable. Hope this helps!!!!

Sony KV-32XBR400 television

Four blinks would normally indicate a yoke winding that was shorting intermittently, 5 blinks something on the "D" board in overvoltage condition and 6 blinks commonly Ic6501 is failing...
To have all of these blink codes happening could be signal derived, thereby not affecting dvd play. Could be smps related or possibly regulation. My first guess would be the "D" board...
Is there a cheap and quick fix, yes and no... This isn't one you'll be able test out or you wouldn't be asking the question. But a shop should be able to determine the problem and repair for less than half the cost of a new Tv in it's comparable class..
Hope this helps!

How do we adjust our tv

You didn't mention anything about a cable box, VCR, etc. which might be connected. A snowy pic. means simply, inadequate signal is reaching the tuner, or the TV tuner itself is bad. If the first is so... check your cabling. If you have a VCR or DVD player hooked in between the cable box or outside antenna (whichever is the case), VCR (RF or ant.) out should go to the TV, VCR antenna (RF or ant.) input to the cable box. Also check the cable wire itself. If you look at the end of the cable, you should see a relatively thin center wire. This center conductor is what carries the signal. If it is missing, bent over, or too short to make contact with whatever it is connected to, you will have a very snowy pic. If you have a spare TV, connect it in place of your "new" TV, to narrow down the problem. Lastly, if all is well with hookup, cabling, etc. the TV might have a problem. Sometimes the tuner has a component defect, or the coaxial connector can be broken.

No picture No Sound?? Tube is fine....

Hello MagillaG, You are getting off cheap considering that this hum may be from the IHVT, hopefully the hum is not for that component. Since you have no picture and no sound that denotes a power supply probme which can be anything from a blown fuse to a bad IHVT or the horizontal output transistor. $180.00 is about right.

Have cable.........but not working

The GE (actually RCA) 31GT659 has the notorious CTC187 chassis. This chassis developes cracks in the solder joints on the shields around the tuner and microprocessor, and can mess up the settings stored in the EPROM IC. This could result in channels going snowy, vertical collapse, loss of sound and/or total shut-down. The set should be resoldered and reprogrammed by someone experienced with this RCA chassis.
