GE 31GT660 picture is intensly WHITE

Picture is intense white (not snowy)& picture vibrates once in awhile & then stops. All external components are disconnected from the set such as DVD/VCR so TV runs by itself. Anntena check okay, DVD input image ALSO produces WHITE picture. Messed with adjustments resulted w/no change. Mysteriously it worked last night. Today NO. What is the problem/issue?? (Tom)

Re: GE 31GT660 picture is intensly WHITE

The GE (actually RCA) 31GT660 uses the CTC187 series chassis. This chassis is notorious for bad solder joints on the shields around the tuner and microprocessor. When the solder joints on the shields crack, the microprocessor and EPROM lose their ground and the EPROM's data becomes corrupt. The solder joints on the shields will all have to be resoldered and the EPROM reprogrammed or replaced by a qualified tech familiar with the 187 series chassis.

42le5400 half screen is white

Check connection wire [LVDS] cable, that connects in between its T'Con and display panel for loose contact at its both end connector sockets. Re-seat it once, and check. Replace this cable, with an identical one. If you wish to get some details, Pull up older posts.

Snowy picture

The remote doesn't effect the channels, I would say you have poor signal or interference from another device nearby.

Tv is too dark

You didn't say how old your TV is. If it's very old the picture tube could be weak. IF not then there is a screen adjustment on the flyback transformer that you might try to adjust. Sometimes you can access this adjustment without removing the back cover. If you see an adjustment through a hole in the back of the cabinet marked "SCREEN" then you might try turning this control clockwise while watching the picture in a mirror. Only a slight adjustment may be needed. Don't make it too bright or the set may shut down or have small white (retrace) lines in the picture. If you have a projection TV then dust on the three picture tube lenses will darken the picture. These are general statements that apply to different TV's. I assumed that this is a direct view 32 in.
