The reason there is no picture is (95%, certainty) the loss of the high voltage. The high voltage is what produces the energy for the raster lines upon which the video is modulated.

Therefore, the video and deflection circuits may be working just fine but you cannot see because there is no high voltage to the picture tube.

Now, it is possible, also that power to the projection tube filaments has been lost, or that the power supply to the biasing voltages is defective or that the picture tube sockets are corroded, but the overwhelming cause among TV sets is loss of high voltage.

Refurbishing the high voltage will probably cost $250 or from anywhere you go. Even if you do it yourself and buy the parts wholesale you will not save a tremendous amount. So, unless you are very handy and know how to troubleshoot, solder, repair and test, I think you are better off finding a good shop for the repair.

Good luck and have a great day!

Inspect both the lamp and the color wheel that faces the lamp--unplugging simply makes the set try to reboot.

My 27" ( aprx 6 yrs old)Tv first had only a horizontal line across the screen about 1/2" wide, good sound but no picture, now it only clicks like its turning on and off when you plug the tv in, no pictue...


It has gone into a self protect mode where it will shut down because you have a fault in the frame stage of the TV (horizontal line). This will most likely be a failure of the frame output IC. Replace this & you should restore the normal picture.

My GE Profile doesn"t drain completly, leaving about 2" of water.


Sounds like a water level sensor is on the fritz. The drain valve is probably opening if the level drops at all.

SOUND NO PICTURE


I simply opened the TV set, and surprisingly found condensation on some of the electronic panels. I pulled out my blowdryer and aired them on low....reassembled the tv, and then turned it back on. Boy, was I surprised that it worked! That's how I got my picture back. Works fine now. Thanks.

I have picture and no sound


Try unplugging it for a minute. You will have to go through setup again (most likely).
Some of these sets have a (software?) issue and the audio drops out maybe once or twice a year-at least that's what I've experienced. No real fix for it.
