GE 27GT722 Picture problem

My T.V. powers up, but sometimes there is no picture, not even snow. Sometimes i power it up and the picture comes on right away, other times it takes several minutes for the picture to come up. Also, sometimes i turn on the T.V. and the picture never comes on.

Re: GE 27GT722 Picture problem

Regarless of the reason I will give you ,call a service tech for an estimate since is the safe way to correct the problem. First when you loose the pix put your forearm in the face of picture tube and if the hair in your arm stands up is a good sign because you are not loosing high voltage to the picture tube but if the hair does not stand up it means the crt looses high voltage and for that you need a service tech to troubleshoot.The other reason might not be as expensive If you have high voltage by doing the previus test it might just be a loose conection in the crt board.Do not remove the back cover unless you know what are you doing.Is not safe.

Power comes on but no picture

I have the same problem. After power on I just get a blue screen and no sound.

I can get a piture and sound if i do the following.

Leave the TV on for a minute or two then unplug the power while still on. Plug back in and power on. I begin to get sound, repeat and then I get a picture for a few moments then blue again. Repeat and then I get constant picture with defunct colors. I then use the remote to power off and back on an color corrects. sometimes have to repeat this as well. Sometimes it takes unplugging, replugging, and powering on up to five times before i can sit down to watch tv.

Picture on 15 year old Trintron comes on briefly then goes black

if the sound goes out its not a tube problem . a bad tube would have no effect on the sound .you problem (my guess) is in the power supply . a modern tv power supply has parts of it that stay on all the time unpluging it is not the problem its when you plug it in ! the power supply gets a JOLT . you might get away with it ,you might not . thats why we install surge arrestors on power plugs and with expensive tvs i recomend a UPS a power unit that keeps the tv powered even wnen the line power is out . thats keeps everthing in the sets nice and even ,so the tv lasts longer ... a modern tv turned off uses about 1.40 in electric a YEAR in standby mode , so what are you saveing if you send you set to the landfill early and have to buy a new one ? over 1.40 in electric ? . turn down you water heater or something else simple dont be blowing out you electronics for the sake of a few cents ..... good luck .... if this answer helped please rate a 3 or 4 , this high rateing will hepl keep me in the paid answer department . thank you

JVC AV-32730 36" picture problem..

From what you describe, a solder joint has probably cracked loose in a power supply or deflection circuit, which is quite common. Since you do sometimes see a good picture, all of your major components are fine. Repairing cracked solder joints is a very easy procedure and definately worth fixing on a 32 inch TV. The first 2 digits of the model number indicate the size of the TV.

27gt722 sound ok, no video

I found one of these that had an inductor coil which is in series with the hoizontal output transistor base open up. It had a bad solder connection where it goes through the circuit board. This might be what happened to your tv. If so, it needs to be resoldered. What happens is that you loose horizontal drive and since the voltage that lights the filiament of the picture tube is derived from the flyback transformer this voltage is gone. Another possibility is that you may have an opem filiament (rare) or a loose connection on the picture tube driver board which is mounted on the neck of the tube. Stargazer
