Question about GE 27GT616 27" TV

1 Answer

On-Off-On-Off-On-Off-On-Off-On-Off REALLY FAST

Worked great for 10 years, then suddenly when I try to turn on my GE 27GT616 27" TV it does this:

On-Off-On-Off-On-Off-On-Off-On-Off REALLY FAST and then never does power up...

Also, on a side note, are there different versions of this set with the same model number? I keep reading other posts about composite connections on the back and/or built-in VCRs. Mine has ONE coax input and that's it. No other inputs. I've always had to use an RF converter to connect it to DVD players, etc..
Label says it was manufactured in July of 1998.

Needs to have the regulator circuit rebuilt... I think for that unit it's p/n 231523 but ask the dustributor to check that before ordering, every suffix version has different kit numbers. Just give the order desk the FULL model number of your Tv..

My irobot roomba is bumping into everything really fast and hard this just started happening this week

check and make sure your bumber isn't jammed with debris. you can briskly tap the bumper 10-20 times to try and free up anything that may be stuck up in there. it also wouldn't hurt to clean the four sensors underneath. if that doesn't work try and reset your machine by holding the power button down for 10 sec.

How long can this tv last for

I Have this very same TV and have had it for over 10 years, it still works great. The life of a TV can vary with every different use. Depending on how long the set is turned on and how many times you have turned it on and off. The off and on cycle is what greatly deminishes a TV's life span. If you start noticing the picture or color quality starting to fade it will be a hint that it may soon need replaced. ther eis the sudden failure of the power supply and then it will more than likely be done for. I would guess that you should get at least 12 years of use of this set, but as I said the life of these vary a great deal.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.
