GE 46GW948 shuts off when cold then works fine

HI my GE built in July 2000 Model 46GW948 is havine a problem just started.
When first turned on after being off for a few hours it works alright and then the screens distorts(sometimes) and then goes black and no sound except maybe a little hiss or crackle, then comes back on,sometimes it actually powers off and must be turned back on. It may let you watch 5 minutes or 5 seconds or maybe even ten minutes at a time. It does this off and on for about hour or so and then works fine. Any help would be much appreciated

    Yes I can solder. This is my first repair on this type of equipment, I have solder many wires into connectors and on a board a few years ago, so I should be able to do this, a question I have is this how many convergence ICs should there be I only see one and don't want to disassemble any farther than necessary to avoid any problems that could cause. The one I see is on a single board with very easy access. Thank you

This is a classis symptom of poor solder connections that when heated connect well. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. Resolder any connections that appear to be grainy or have rings. Note: The most likely location of these poor connections are at the convergence ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and should be marked STKxxx. There are high voltages floating around inside these sets even when unplugged, so be careful.

Keep me posted.

GE 46GW948 TV Sound turns up by itself. Checked button looks fine


What happened on a lot of these is the micro switches on the front go bad.

With back off (set unplugged) located the bundle of wires coming from front keyboard to top of set(a small pc board near the top of the middle of the three tubes).

Unplug the plug going to the keyboard----set will still work as remote receiver is also on that board.

Questions?

SET JUST CLICKS WHEN POWER BUTTON IS PUSHED


I would check the low votage regulators, horizontal output and the flyback. The relay is the first stage of the start up process so the standby voltages are suspect as are the oscilation / Hv circuits. how are your trouble shooting skills?

Cracked screen


I think that Thomson is the manufacturer or distributor for GE parts, and Global INC is one of their distributers. keep that it mind when looking for your screen. and you might be able to get it at vancebaldwin.com good luck
