Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

I have a GE HDTV rear projection flat screen modle D52GW12. I bought it at Best Buy 3 years ago. My problem is - is that my screen blinks/flassjed and then goes black and the power shuts down. I've checked all outlets that the TV was plugged into (or could be plugged into) and they are all working fine... I spent a good amount of money on this TV, along with other GE products. I would hope that the TV would last longer than 3 years. Any ideas on what would be wrong? Or how to fix it?

Whats the price range of this TV??? i am trying to sell mine for cheap


If this is a newer Projection screen [one of last ones] you are correct when you say liquidated price. As the new flat screens have made the projection TV a dinosaur. Depending on the year and condition..maybe 300 to500 bucks is a fair price at best!

Screen is too dark


with a flashlight at the back of the set often times there is an adjustment you can make WITHOUT having to open the set!!!

look for a little hole in the back of the plastic cabinet labeled SCREEN then with a flat screwdriver holding only the plastic handle, insert it into the hole and SLOWLY rotate until the screen brightens up until it is watchable.

This is compensating for age in the picture tube. you may get a few day or a few more years! of a much better picture.

If you start seeing some thin lines on the screen then back off you have gone too far. Do this adjustment with the brightness and contrast controls on the menu turned up all the way.

it is also safe to play with the focus adjustment right next to the screen if thing seem a little blurry. you will need two people one to watch from a distance for best picture.

Sounds like it could be a problem with high voltage stages. Definitely a job for a TV technician as it is dangerous try to repair it yourself.
