Question about GE 27GT270 TV

1 Answer

Vertical color tearing

Hello! My GE 27GT270 is several years old. The TV set was not mine to begin with, but I received it from my sister. I noticed that the TV has vertical color tearing, and the brightness not being high enough. According to another site, this tends to be a capacitor problem. Any ideas on how I could possibly fix this? Or, at least give your opinion on how much repair costs will be? I want to make this TV last until it finally blows.

Well this problem could also be a worn out picture tube or the screen voltage very low.
It is best you ask your local Repairer to give you a quote.

My ten year old sony plasma tv has vertical herring bone lines no picture just color lines. Is my picture tube gone.


If its 10 years old boards and or parts will likely not be available--average life on Plasma and LCD sets is 3-5 years.

I would retire it--recycle it and buy a new set.

I would be concerned with the vertical IC. This IC has pins that have separated from the board itself. You will note the area under the vertical IC is almost black. It will do no good to resolder this. You will need to replace the vertical IC with a new one. And be sure to replace those electrolytic capacitors near and next to the vertical IC. Bad grounds on the this IC will cause your TV to shut down. Also inspect the rest of the TV board. In some cases the retrace cap will always need resoldered! But please inspect all areas of this board for bad grounds and resolder as necessary! Good solid grounds will give you a dependable set. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!
