Question about Apex Digital GT2015DV 20 in. TV/DVD Combo

1 Answer

All of a sudden only a line down the center

Apex Digital GT2015DV is used by my children. we've had it about 4 years now and I don't want to put a lot of money into it, but if it is fixable for a reasonable amount I would do it since it always had a nice picture on it. Starting yesterday the screen only displays a line down the center. Audio is fine. I unplugged the set overnight and when I turned it on the full picture appeared but went to the center line only again in a matter of a minuteif that. Any ideas on what might cause this?

Re: All of a sudden only a line down the center

Hi, it is possible that you have a cold solder or a loose connection on the printed circuit board or a defective component. If it is vertical -- line, then it could also possibly be the vertical IC, a defective capacitor (or probably even just a resistor); If it is horizontal, then it could possibly be a high voltage capacitor, any part of the horz deflection circuitry. Both cases involve opening the unit, determining the defective component, desoldering, replacing defective component, soldering. Unless you are very comfortable working with soldering iron, multi testers and know how to check comp[onent/parts, yopu are probably better off asking a qualified service personnel to perform the repairs for you. One other thing, if banging on the set restore it to operation (even if for just a while), then is definitely a cold solder. Hopes this be of some help to you. Good luck.

Something is wrong..crbr799 your DVD-TV has a TV-DVD button on the right front to switch from TV to DVD play...OPEN button on left side ,place DVD in tray, close & press PLAY...
I something simulator that needs the remote control for the SPECIAL the way the ORIGINAL r\c is $135 to $155, a replacement ($35) will turn the TV\DVD on ( which you can do without the r\c) and NOT function with anything else.
P.S. they will try to sell you universal r\c that work with the CABLE boxes, the ones that you pay a monthly fee!!

My dvd drive is stuck I think my son put too many dvds in there ad not it wont open model number is APEX DVD combo GT2015DV

If it has been overloaded with too many dvd's, then you won't be able to eject them. You'll have to disassemble and remove the discs manually, if you are not comfortable doing this, call an electronics shop, most large ones (FutureShop, BestBuy) will preform repairs. Cheers!
