Is it like its vertical is folding over to the center of your screen? If this is it, vertical IC is loosing its connection to its board. Better to resolder it, or some component is going faulty within vertical circuit or the IC itself.

GE 25GT270 TV had a jumpy picture for a short time, then TV shut down. Afterward, smelled a burning smell. What happened and can I fix it?

Check its vertical output section circuit for damaged component/s. Check the vertical output IC.

Hi, I have a Tedelex EC29187 Television it have only a horizontal line in the middle of the screen, I opened it and looked for physical damage around the vertical defflection IC, but it show nothing so...

Ur tv it is taken aparts wright now?Yes.Plug in ur tv to see the problems and take the hard end handle of the screw driver and taps around the vertical deflection ic for cold soldering joints,will require resoldering the ic,if the vertical hold flickers or bounced back to normal.No bounce back vertical hold check all the sorrouding capacitors transistors resistors for dead components parts to be replaced,if all the sorrouding parts are good,than that vertical deflection ic it self it is dead and require replacing.

The vertical hold keeps going out. Fixes itself for a short time and goes out again. The volume stays fine. When you turn off the tv and turn it back on the vertical hold goes out. Hopefully there...

you either have a bad vertical ic or just bad solder connection around the vertical ic and stage. When the TV is fine, if you slightly tap the set and the problem presents itself, then it is bad solder at the ic and stage.

I have heard a popping sound with tv going off a couple of times This time I cannot turn the tv back on. Is it worth fixing?

well that all depends on the cost of the replacement part vs that of a new tv.

It sounds as if the flyback (tansformer) part of the power supply circuit is shot. replacing the flyback can fix the problem, but there are still other things that could have blown such as a few capicators / resistors and diodes on the power supply circuit. and then they might have a few cracked solders as well.

Simply put you wont know if its worth it or not until u have it looked it, or attempt repairs yourself and get the cost of the replacement parts.

Vertical rolling

Does you set have PIP (picture in picture)? If it does then the PIP module has a bunch of capacitors that have gone bad (dried out and leaked) causing you to loose vertical sync. Vertical synchronization is what locks your picture keeping it from rolling. Even if you don't have PIP then still you have a vertical sync problem. The set would have to be checked by a tech to find exactly what's happening. Stargazer
