Question about GE 13TVR72 13 in. Combo
I have the same problem with my combo TV. My problem with the cutting off just started recently after i viewed a VHS tape. When I clicked to REW at the end of REW tape clicked so hard i thought the tape was busted...tape ok but something happened. Now the TV cuts off. I turn it back on it cuts off again. I tried unplugging everything (including the cable box). The TV stays on for a "hot" minute and cuts off again. I tried unplugging an entire day. TV plays for about 1-2 hours then clicks off?? I believe had the TV for about 2-4 years??? Is it worth getting fixed?? I really do not want to buy another TV now???
Hi. these combo units have a very short life span and it is due to the integrated design of the circuit board layout. the power supply and main main board are all combined. This click that you stated, was a mechanism failure that runs the VHS assembly. this may be a spring that has come off the link or, it could be a solenoid that has burned out. there are many linkages and electric motors that make up the VHS assembly and, all this is combined within the main circuitry.
The second issue is the power supply section Of the board layout. this unit has an integrated power circuit board that has experienced a malfunction within the main capacitors. this is causing the Tv combo unit to power off. it is heat related and, this has damaged this section of the board. Due to the fact that this entire assembly is integrated, you will have to replace the entire main board and VHS assembly. this will be costly and , it may be more cost affective to just cut your loss and purchase a new set at this time.
The actual repair cost will be 298.00 plus labor.
