Re: 27" GE TV with loud Popping sound

Could be a possible flyback. yes.. for a 27inch i would not think it would be worth it... 27 inch tvs are realativly cheap.. the lowest price to repair would be about 200 if you got lucky.

My RCA tv has been working fine for years. A few days ago it began to have intermittent popping sounds. Picture is clear and sound is good. I recently dusted the back of my set and I'm sure some dust must...

hi there,
if u know how to work with your set u can:
1. open the back cover case of your tv and try to find a foreign objects inside and clean it up with your vacuum cleaner.
2. popping sounds sometimes due to lossen parts, bad socket contacts, too much dust and dirts ,corrosions .and when cleaning you unplug first your TV set to avoid electric shock. i hope this will help a little. Thank You.

Green screen and distorted picture sound is good but no picture

It must be connected with the color circuit of your tv, a board connected to back end of the tube. Could be dust, cob web or carbon deposit shorting a transistor. Popping noise if loud enough can be attributed to high voltage circuit fault and picture tube.

Have it service by a qualified person.

TV goes out

Intermittent problems are the toughest to track down, but usually have one of two root causes. Cold solder joints are an intermittent contact between where a component (transistor, etc) is mounted to the circuit board and the electrical contacts of the board itself. The other cause is components which break down under heat. Either way, if your not much on troubleshooting, have a TV shop service it, it can be easily repaired.

TV Black-out

a tap on the side tells me that it's a solder connection broken loose, most likely in the horizontal section. if you have experience with electronic soldering, you can fix it, otherwise take it to somebody that can fix it. thermal expansion and contraction(from turning the set on and off) eventually produces metal fatigue in solder connections, and the connection breaks loose, just enough that it sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't.
