Question about GE 25GT538 25" TV

1 Answer

GE 25GT538 bad lower cable channels

The lower channels 2-7 have wavy sort of static like lines that go across the entire screen. The picture is still visible, but annoying. The rest of my cable channels (8-65) are fine and clear. I looked through your database, but didn't seem to find anything, in the 10 pages I went through, relating to this problem. I was told it may be the cable box (don't know the correct name) inside the TV. Is there a website, that has good diagrams, I can buy this part from? My tv is a GE Model 25GT538.

There are wavy colored lines an the screen all the

A problem like yours is NORMALLY NOT the TV set's fault....it's the Cable.

I'll bet you see thin lines moving across the entire picture...they are slanted like this >> \ \ \ \
That's generally caused by a bad ground on the antenna cable OR it can be the cable box's MODULATOR.

Try using your VIDEO OUTPUT off of your Cable box and see if the wavy lines are still present. If they are the Cable box needs swapped with a good unit.

You can also verify this problem by checking your TV with a DVD player...no lines indicate the TV is fine.

If you have problems with the DVD player's picture, then you must have dried out filtering capacitors on the Video board IN the TV set...

And THAT is not an easy fix if you do see lines with your DVD player.

Picture Problems On 50 Inch Philips Plasma

You plasma still under manufacturers warranty. Most electronic devices have one year warranty.
The failure in your TV can only be corrected by repairing it.
I would suggest to call philips and ask them to find you an authorized repair center near you to get your TV fix under their warranty.

lines may be caused by AC pickup. if so, usually the lines move slowly up the screen, and two major sets are usually displayed. wavy lines may also be caused by a local TV station transmitting on the same output channel, either 3 or 4. If you can change the output channel, this may help. Also, try disconnecting all cable or satellite signals and see if the problem goes away. May be an adjacent channel bleeding over. If the lines go away when putting the dvd on pause, the problem is probably in the dvd power supply. Cool the unit down by unplugging it for a while and then try it. If the problem goes away then, separate the dvd player from other devices to prevent overheating

I am told my Hitachi 61SDX01B (UltraVision/Ultrascan) has "Green Geometry"

Sounds like a convergence promblem.

Here are some of the most common symptoms of a convergence problem.

Screen looks 3D
One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
Screen is bowed in or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence or magic focus section.

Try to adjust the convergence.

You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Its a fairly easy fix on the Hitachi sets.

You can get a repair kit that includes all the parts from www.TvRepairKits.com. The kit includes a photo instruction guide, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, etc.
Everything you need to fix it yourself.
