Question about GE 46GW947 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV Turned off, now there is a clicking noise when plugged in.

The other night I was watching TV, and it turned off randomly. Now, whenever we plug it in, the tv just makes a clicking noise like a fan slowing down or something. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: TV Turned off, now there is a clicking noise when...

Had a 51" GE rear projection donated to myself. While off and power button pressed there was a clicking noise from the front of the unit. Rear cover was removed and it could be observed that the hv splitter had a crack in the casing and the power was arcing out of the splitter. I purchased a $72 dollar hv splitter, i read that the $20-$30 dollar one would break within a year, and the unit powered up no problems.

Tv randomly turns off. Not sure if it is overheating or if something is broken.


Hello,
It sounds as if you are having problems with the AC Power reaching the television. Please verify the cord is firmly seated the tv's ac inlet
Also check the wall outlet (and power strip) by plugging in a lamp into it and see if it flickers when the tv shuts off.
Good Luck!

I have a JVC AV-65WP74, I went to bed watching the TV then turned it off for the night but the next day when I turned it back on the blue light came on on the TV but no picture, the TV makes a fast...


The clicking you hear is probably caused by a relay that controls the incoming AC to the main power supply. This is a protective reaction to a problem in the power supply itself or an overload due to a failure downstream from the supply. This is not a likely DIY repair. You will probably need a technician to determine which of these two likely problems it is.

I was watching tv and out of nowhere the tv turned off and now will not turn back on for more than a couple seconds. When it does turn on it makes a click noise then turns off, with no sound or picture.

The most probable cause are the Three capacitors CP150, CP114 and CP120 all located on the deflection board.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off


I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

Akai hd projection tv pt4299hd won't turn on


Sounds like a power supply issue. Does the power indicator light up? Can you hear a click when the power button is pressed?

Will not turn on


Does the set make any sounds. DOes the front green led light or flash when you try to turn it on.. if not then it could be as simple as a fuse, if it does flash then it can be many problems

Turns on randomly


Ed,
since both the sat and tv turn on suggest to me that you have some sort of power problem in the outlet. I once had a customer complain of the same kind of thing, turned out to be the hotwater heater loading down the line. try a surge protector with battery backup the on used for computers, if that solves the problem then have an electrian come in and chase the problem.
you see, some of these sets will turn on after a power loss.
