Question about GE D52GW12 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Tv does not come on

Thanks for the infor.. when the TV does come on, the tv is working just fine, no other problems that I notice and I don't remember anything else that could have caused this to happen, we have our Directtv and other components attached like the HD DVD, but other than that I notice it took of couple of push on the power on from the remote and it would come on, then it was a few hours, and now days, but somehow it will eventuall come, I know when it coming on it has that sizzlin/cracklin sound, and when it does come on I keep on for a long time, but when I turn it off, it will come back on a few minutes after it goes, but if it stays off for quite sometime, like over nite, that's when the problems starts.

The eprom (has menu controls ) and sensor ( takes frequency's from the remote) and as long as the batterys are good in the remote then the eprom and sensor inside the set will need to be tested and maybe replaced or also there is a crystal that is on the eprom chip that can cause these symptoms , but it will need testing and replacement of one of these components
also a fixya is the only rating that will help our rating as all others hurt our rating and the rating is all we get for answering questions or determining a problem for free , I will be more than happy to give you all the info I can without being able to test the tv myself , but I can only tell you so much without being able to test it. but right now that would be the place to look for a fault since the remote signal was not being processed thru the sensor or eprom chip

Color poor, essentially black & white


Thanks for using FixYa. This issue is caused by failed convergence ICs. I don’t think the issue is with the power supply of the unit as the sound is coming fine from the unit. Please also check the convergence board for cracked solder. If you want to do the repair yourself there are repair kits available which includes instructions on how to replace them. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

You very well could have problem with the Ballast board that powers Lamp or your Lamp Fan maybe defective and if you need orinagnal hand unit for set Call Encompass Parts Distrubtion or Go to their website type in Model number they will list Parts /Prices for your model.
1-800-638-3328 Mats Electronics also sells handunits .To reset timer
Hold VOL- on front of TV and Menu on hand unit at same time for 5secs
if this does not work try it in reverse Hold Menu down on TV and Vol- on hand unit. Check your Lamp Fan see if it quits running while turning set on,if it starts and stops it is defective, other wise Follow wires that Lamp plugs into it will connect to Ballast board that powers Lamp CK it Problem M/B Ballast Board.

I have a philips 60 that leaked out oil need to replace

If you can still powerup the tv and see a picture and sound is fine, you can probably save the TV. Pull out the board that was drenched in oil and let it sit in a warm area for a few months, it will dry and should be fine. You will need to purchase projection fluid... see MCM Then you will have to do complete convergence on just the one color tube that you replaced the oil. The code to enter to do this is 062597 MENU on the remote. You will see instructions to converge. Please find the technical instructions that should be stapled to the back of the tv. Or locate the service manual on this website to see what keys on the remote to work. Remember the only color you will be working on, is the tube you fill. Good Luck and be very patient.

Hello. I have a Zenith DLP Projection TV that I bought new from the store (possibly the display in the store) that has been working fine for 2 years. Just only a few weeks ago, the color seemed a...

Sounds like you need to replace your lamp and the tv will work fine until the new lamp goes out. I have had three lamps since Nov 2006 in mine and I have a notice coming up on my Panasonic saying I need to change the lamp right now. Which is strange, because before there was no warning, it worked fine and then when we went to turn it on again, it just did not work until the lamp was replaced.
