Question about GE 32GT740 32" TV
I need to know if it can be fixed cheep or if its worth it.its a ge 42in.8-10 years old tv.
The picture shrinking is an indicator the the regulated HT power supply rail is going low in voltage resulting in EHT supply for the tube doing the same. . This will relate to component failure in the power supply itself, probably capacitors. It will progress, and eventually the set will stop. To be totally honest with you, it could run to $180-250 to overhaul the power supply and a few other areas of concern in a set this age. They were always a little on the "cheap build" side to begin with, so I would not recommend you spend anything on it, your money would be better put towards a new one. I know that this does not fix your problem, but is advice from a TV tech that knows. Thanks for using FixYa. I am happy to answer any other questions you may have. A FixYa rating of this advice to you is a great reward for the time I have taken to address it with you. Cheers regards rbotek
