Question about GE D52GW12 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
While watching, my TV started crackleing, the screen went black, smoke and sparks shot out the back last night. We imeadiatly unplugged from surge protector. (The TV turned off automaticlly) When plugged back in, and turned on again, the same thing happened. About a month before the fireworks, the screen would go black a few times and then shut itself off. After a minute I could turn it back on. I called GE and they asked how old the surge protector was I and I said probably 2 years (as old as th TV) So I purchased a new one and TV worked fine for 2 weeks, then shot sparks. Please help! I have a feeling this could be an expensive fix and need to know if I should just buy a better TV.
It sounds like your focus/screen block, the flyback transformer, or maybe a CRT anode lead is leaking high voltage. This could be a serious problem, or could be a simple one. You should not attempt this repair unless you know all of the high voltage safety issues involved with this TV set. Good Luck
