Question about GE 46GW947 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

In response to previous 'click' problem.

I do not believe that click was an accurate word for the noise. It is more of a squeak, happens in 1-2 second intervals. Also, there are no visible arcs near the HV splitter. I am assuming the problem is somewhere after the first big cap because the noise continues after the unit is unplugged.

Re: In response to previous 'click' problem.

Could be a shorted high voltage transformer. IE switches on at low power, finds a short, switches off and continually repeats this process.

When i push the power button on my rca hdtv r52wh73 the green light comes on it makes a squeak noise like it is trying to power up but nothing happens.

replacing the deflection board will solve that issue about 95% of the time. You need the ITC222A deflection board PSB260 which you can get from listed under the RCA Projection circuit boards. It comes with installation instructions.

Sounds like the HV generator needs replacing. You can get a replacement at the following link. If your not sure which one your model uses, leave them a email with the model number of your set.

Loud humming or high pitch buzzing noise coming from my rca dlp tv 50 inch

I have a very high pitched sound and when I move the tv it will stop for a second or two and then start again. The sound sometimes stops all together. But very high pitch sound.
