Question about GE 32GT720 32" TV

1 Answer

Need help trying to figure out what's wrong.

I got this TV today and was told that board that goes to the switches needed to be re-attached. So, my husband re-attached this, plugged the TV in and still nothing. He got to looking a little closer and found a blown fuse. We replaced it and still nothing, not even a clicking that the TV might make trying to turn on. Any suggestions? I got to looking on the back and it says that it was made in 1999. Not that that matters. If there are any sites that could give step-by-step instructions on how to fix it, that would be great. Or at least when suggestions are made on what to replace or fix, please give locations of the parts. We are TV illiterate, so be kind please. Thank you!

Apologies up-front, because I know this isn't the kind of advice you were asking for. I'm a great fan of people having a go at fixing things for themselves, and wouldn't normally push the safety whinge much further than "don't forget to turn it off before you start poking around inside". BUT TVs ARE DIFFERENT. There's bits of a TV that can give you a fatal shock long, long after you've switched them off. If you're really as TV illiterate as you say you are, my advice would be to leave the thing alone, and live to mend something else another day. Sorry to be such a pain - I'm a professional Electrical Engineer and have worked with all manner of dangerous machinery in my time - but opening up TVs still gives me the creeps. A.

On my 1990 williams Diner machine each time a ball goes in the "todays specials slot" it blows the fuse. I keep putting new one in but after ball goes threw and spit out threw ramp fuse blows. Help

You have to open the machine and see why the switch is shorting. Do you know how to get it open? Unlock the coin panel. There are locks on each sude that hold the play table down. Unlock those and see if the play board will lift. On some models, you have to remove the glass before lifting the play board. There is a prop rod to hold it up. Then look at the specials slot and compare how it looks to similar features to figure out what is wrong.

Hello mrdavidmetca,

Welcome, and thank you for using FixYa!

I would start by pulling the batteries from the remote control. Manually turn the TV off and then back on, manually. If the issue resolves, replace the remote.
If the issue continues; you will need to find a local TV Repair Shop and have the Tuner Board replaced.

Have a great day!

You need to find out mare as to what else that the repair shop left out, all the coonectors need to be checked to see if they are in correct place, beside missing the SPEAKER board, no other boards are missing? I would go back and have them put all the old boards back inplace, he may have takebn out the inverter board and others to use for other repair jobs.
You may need the service manual to figure out.

Blower fan stays running. Fan relay attached to small circuit board (coil tabs [timer?]). Capacitor on small circuit board had ''fallen out'' of ic board. Tried to get replacement board, and was sold...

If fan runs on 220 you have one constant 110 that always goes to the motor. The other 110 goes through something that will turn it off and on. This being the relay, just like a light switch. This 110 will land on the "N O" (normally open) set of contacts. "Open" meaning the voltage can't pass through. When the relay gets energized the contacts close. This completes the circuit, the motor gets the 220 it needs and it runs. On the relay coil (how it gets it's energy) you need a low voltage common and you need the "G" wire from the tstat. Likely green in color, this is your indoor blower low voltage wire. When the tstat calls for fan, cool or heat, the relay energizes, closes the contacts, fan runs. Good Luck!!

TV on getting switched on

You will need to remove the back of the TV. Don't worry, it's not that bad.

There are 4 screws across the top, one on each side on the bottom, one right next to where the power cord goes into the back of the case, and the two more by all of the video connections **These are the most important to remove because they attach the main board to the back of the case.

Once you have remove the screws then the entire back of the set will slide off. If you look where the power cord attaches to the board you will see a small fuse. This is a 6.3 Amp 125 volt fuse. You can replace it with a 6.3 Amp 250 volt fuse from your local Radio Shack. A four pack costs between $3 and $5.

Make sure that you check that it works before putting it all back together. Check for any loose connection cables while you're back there. I found a few when I did this.

Good luck!
