Question about GE 27GT616 27" TV

1 Answer

TV turns itself off and back on

I have an older GE set (model #27GT610). When we first turn it on, the TV will come on OK, but then it will suddenly turn itself off for a second and then comes right back on. It sometimes does that two or three times in the first two minutes we have the set on, but then it will stop. I don't know if this is related, but after the TV's been on a while, the picture will drop out but the sound will stay on. I've found that problem is corrected by turning the set off and back on using the remote control.

    Thanks for the expert advice, Techman! This saves me a wasted trip to the repair shop. The TV is actually about 10 years old, so I hear what you're saying--it's time to pull the plug and buy a new set!

Your problem could be as simple as bad solder connections on the main high voltage transformer or in the sweep power supply. Without doing some probing around inside the set while it is turned on, this is a hard call my freind. If the set is over 5 to 8 years old, it is most likly age related as the Printed circuit boards, as they heat up and cool, will develop poor solder connections, ring cracks around the solder connectios and also heat related problems with some of the internel componets. This is a solid state TV set, and has no user replaceable parts inside. So if you have the know how around solid state TV circuits, and know how to solder, then maybe, just maybe you will be able to get this puppy to work just a little bit longer. if you do not, it is time im afraid to put this beast to rest and buy a new early holiday gift. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement. To some models sets, the back-light inverter and SMPS section circuit will be integrated at its main board itself. If so; the main board should be replaced. To some models of sets, all these section circuit will be integrated at its main board. If this is the case, you have to replace the main digital board.//

The TV suddenly started to malfunction. There is a 'pop' sound followed by the screen turning cloudy or misty, the sound and functions are ok. The tv returns back to normal in about an hour.

Ge standard tv, model #27GT610 keeps blinking off . I get a black screen with a white line across the middle of screensometimes we still have sound, sometimes not


There is a problem with the vertical circuit and depending on whether or not the fault is detected, the set may be shutdown. Many times this is just a case of poor solder connections at the vertical IC. If you feel comfortable working inside the set and can solder, please update this and I'll provide additional details and instructions.

Thanks,
Dan

Video mode on GE 27GT610


Try hooking up the dvd player and turning it on. Then use the setup and add/erase channel feature to look thru all of the channels. On my older GE tv I found that channel 91 was the correct channel for the video input. I saw the logo for the dvd player on this channel. I just added that channel and now it works. Your channel might be different.

Older GE television sound trouble


The first thing to check is the push button assembly maybe the volume down button has been pushed in too hard/far and is always making contact,sometimes when we clean the face of the tube water drips down in thru the edge of the frame in the buttonts,corrosion sets in and creates a short,if you are familiar with tv service you can chech the buttons thru the inside to make sure they are not pushed in but if you are not famliar be safe and call for assistance froma servicer.
