The GE (actually RCA) 25GT516 uses the CTC185 series chassis. The dashes you show look like the old display of a clock that has not been set. I have never heard of this chassis producing those dashes continually on the screen, so the first thing I would do is eliminate any cable box, satellite receiver, DVD or VCR. If you have cable, run it directly to the set and see is the dashes are there. If you are sure that the dashes are being generated within the TV and you have properly set the clock and turned off the OSD, then it soulds like an EPROM problem and the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the CTC185 chassis.

Sony WEGA KE-37XS910


This TV has a very expensive panel... we are talking $3000 core charge alone! It comes complete with all the lower buffer boards (which from the sound of it, you are having a problem with). Individual boards for this defect are not available on repair parts list I know of. A panel is what you need, PN: 9-885-063-33

We are experiencing the same problem with our DN26D...we'd purchased this TV back in July at WalMart in Toronto in September 2007. We have now only a blue screen and after reading through the poorly written manual we are unable to troubleshoot. Auto tuning has done nothing and switching channels has proved even less. Before sending the model back to the manufacturer could anyone suggest what we can do?

It sounds like there is a loose connection in there or a button is stuck. There is a magnet that lets the phone know if it is open. It is located in the lower righthand portion of screen and the sensor is located in the upper righthand corner of the keypad. Get a magnet and play with it. What happened to it? Is it still under warranty? If not crack it open and see. There are numerous manuals online for the razrs. Only for the brave or stupid, but it just a phone.
