Re: GE 25GT516TX1

The GE (actually RCA) 25GT516 uses the CTC185 series chassis. The dashes you show look like the old display of a clock that has not been set. I have never heard of this chassis producing those dashes continually on the screen, so the first thing I would do is eliminate any cable box, satellite receiver, DVD or VCR. If you have cable, run it directly to the set and see is the dashes are there. If you are sure that the dashes are being generated within the TV and you have properly set the clock and turned off the OSD, then it soulds like an EPROM problem and the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the CTC185 chassis.

When ever there is some strong white on the screen it gets distored. For example. There was a white tent on screen and where the light was hitting it it was extremely pixelated and distorted. Ny ideas?

This fault can occur to mainly three reasons. ABL circuit failure. Low screen voltage or lack of emission from picture tube cathode. Just advance the screen voltage to a little, and observe the result. Screen control can be located on its Line Output Transformer [LOT]. there will be two variable controls built on to LOT marked as screen and focus. Screen control will be at lower side, and focus will bw on the top. Just advance [clockwise movemnt] to a little, not more, advance it till retrace lines are just visible on the screen. Before doing this, set all the picture controls, contrast, colour and brightness of the TV to zero. Once the retrace lines[thin horozontal white lines across the entire screen at about 1 inch distance with each other]; are visible, stop there, turn the screen control counterclockwise to just a point when these lines are just goes off. make this adjustment in a dark room so that you can set this point very correct. After this check the perfomance of the picture. If this does not help you, ABL circuit should be checked for any fault.
If emission of the picture tube has got down, even the screen adjustment said above won't help you. The only way is to replace the picture tube with same type and number. OK.

I have the same TV. Make sure you have hooked up the red, white, yellow leads from the "out" jacks on the DVD to the same colored "in" jacks on the back of the TV. You also have to make sure your TV is set to Video Mode. I do this with the GE remote that came with the TV. There is a WHO-INPUT button on the left side of the remote, 3rd from the bottom. Toggling this button should switch you between TV and Video mode. Hope this works for you.

Lightning Strike?

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.

1.Are these lines only in the upper 1/3 rd portion of the screen?And is there a clear demarcation between this area and the lower portionb, where the image is perfect? 2.Or is thin Horizontal lines evenly spaced around an centimetre apart? If it is the first case, then there si a problem with your TVs SMPS. It is not generating the required regulated 110V required for the TVs functioning. If it is case 2, then there is a simple adjustment at the back - 'SCREEN'. This adjusts the Screen Grid Voltage, and by slightly lowering it, this problem will go away.
