    nothing wet underneath, unless it dried by the time I got it open and looked. I'm new here so I don't know what is legal on this site. I know that the bulb is split in half. My ex looked at it and said it was the bulb.

  • jen-nay-gump Oct 30, 2008

    It has three tubes. the middle one is the one that is broke. the chassis No. is ITC222, the part No. is GRNHYB-570.

  • jen-nay-gump Oct 31, 2008

    well, what I look at kind of looks like a ********.....flat on each end and long tube in the middle. That middle part is what is broke. I'll try to contact that tritronics and see what I can come up with. If not I'll be back on here....maybe I'll take a picture of it and post it so you can see what I'm talking about. Thanks!

    looks like a *********.....I don't know why it bleeped that out.....



    Yeah, I think I can find someone that is electronically handy....

  • jen-nay-gump Oct 31, 2008

    still don't know why they are bleeping it out. How about a barbell?

  • jen-nay-gump Nov 01, 2008

    No, the tv doesn't come on at all. it tries then makes a crackling noise.

  • jen-nay-gump Nov 11, 2008

    Ok, doing this part now. Got a guy friend over here trying to figure it out. Been out sick for awhile.

  • jen-nay-gump Nov 11, 2008

    Couldn't figure it out. Just going to call a repairman. Thanks for your help.

Where can I get a new bulb?


If that is the correct model number of your set above (D52GW12), then your set doesn't have a bulb. That model has 3 picture tubes. You probably won't find a picture tube for one unless you take it to a tv repair shop which may have a used one, but it would be fairly expensive.

If that isn't your model number and your tv does have a lamp, you can find just about any one of them on ebay for the best price. Just enter your model number off the back of your set and the word "lamp" in the search column and they should come up.
