Why does my GE 46GW945 46 in.TV turn on and then right back off?


this is weak power distribution throughout the unit. you wil need to test the power supply board for blown capacitors and resistors as well. replace this vital board if you notice any swollen or disscolored componets.

Sound but no picture


The first thing to check is the connections to your source. They can easily become loose and/or corroded over time.

46GW945 Dim picture


Check the lamp timer to see how many hours are on it.  If is is near the estimated end of life for your TV replace the lamp.  It will get dimmer as it approaches its end of life.  The lamp timer should be in your menu.

Also had a power surge,...


The GE (actually RCA) 46GW945 uses the PTK195 chassis. There is a separate power supply for the convergence circuits in those sets. The earlier versions used a switching transistor but most sets use the STK730-010 power IC. I have seen many of those IC's stop working after a power surge, resulting in very curved sides with screwy colors. You can remove the back and you will see the 2 main boards at the bottom of the set. The convergence power supply board is mounted above the board on the right (when viewed from the back) and has a pretty large black IC mounted on a little heat sink, labeled STK730-010. Replace that IC and the colors should return to normal. If you do not have experience replacing IC's and working on TV's then allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
