Question about GE 24GP653 24" TV
Posted on Jan 07, 2017
Yes it is. The inside of a TV can seriously hurt you even it's unplugged. The circuits and electrolytics hold a high voltage charge. You can check the fuses,it will be right where the power cord goes into the tv. But I would get a pro to work on it. If lighting did cause this to your TV, you could look into your Home Owners Insurance to pay for the damages. Trivia: On 24 October 1991, one resident of Chicago Heights, IL was comfortably sleeping in bed when....KABOOM. Lightning struck, traveled through a cable television line into the house, struck the bed, which then caught fire. The person was treated for shock. Insurance paid the rest.

Assuming this line is across the screen horizontally (side to side), this means the vertical deflection circuitry is dead. In late model sets, there is a Integrated circuit package which drives the vertical yoke coils. Possible defects: the I.C. itself, bad solder connections where it solders to the board, missing voltage source to this I.C. (often around +24 volts), or a bad electrolytic capacitor in the associated circuitry. This latter often results in a non-linear picture, or less than full deflection condition, rather than a thin line only. It is possible lightning caused this problem, (I've seen some rather illogical damage from lightning ) perhaps it produced enough of a surge to pop the I.C. or a fusible resistor in that voltage source noted above.
