Question about Televison & Video

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?

Power light blinks but will not turn on

The ge d52gw12 is a ge version of an rca itc 222. i have worked on hundreds of these at the shop and found with the ge modle 95 percent of the time it is a bad flyback transformer and a shorted horizontal output transistor. While there can be any number of things at fault. This is the first thing to check in this model. At our shop this repair averages 100 to 150 to repair. this varies depending on your location.

crt burn is common among projection tube tvs. crt burn is just that a burn in the phosper of the crt.. I know of only one solution for this. replacement of the burnt crts. tubes cost on average 250 apeaice and there are 3 then the labor... ussally the cost to do this exceds the value of set. these sets are around 800 to buy new.
