Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

GE Television Dark Shadows

Hi, thank you for responding to my post so promptly! The make is General Electric and the model number showing on the back is 31GT660. The back of the tv has the following buttons: (Polarity - +) (Strength off, low, high) Picture Tilt / and S-Video. There is also the following number: 31GT660YX3. Again, the television is too dark and shadowy. I've already tried to adjust all color options and other options available.

Thanks,
Coolmom74

If you are comfortable working inside the set, I can suggest the following:

1) Open up the back and locate the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). There should be 2 adjustment posts on the back of it.

2) adjust the top one slightly clockwise as you are facing ht back of the TV. This should cause the overall picture to brighten. Don't turn it too much as you will then see the "retrace" lines.

3) Adjust the lower one to focus the picture.

That should help a bit. If not, then the picture tube is probably at the end of its life. Keep me posted with your results.

A USER MANUAL FOR: GENERAL ELECTRIC 27 IN TV MODEL 27GT622 PLEASE HELP THANKS, KEITH


Most major manufacturers supply manuals online so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Without the model number, there is little I can suggest. Can you post that please? Also, are there any indications of an attempt to start? Standby light, blinking anything?

Thanks,

Dark picture and shadows


Sounds like you've entered the "service mode" where you're seeing the chroma (color) signal only. What type of connectors are the F and S? RCA? F? This set is no longer made which makes it hard to research. By any chance, is there a small switch on the back that says "normal - service"?
