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

1 Answer

Focus/Screen block bad

I was cleaning the screen on the tv one afternoon and when I went to power it up it suddendly started to smoke and I heard loud crackling and popping sounds coming from the back of the set. After taking off the back of the tv I turned the power on again to see where the sound and smoke was coming from. There is a part that has the words Focus and Screen written on it that started to smoke. My first thought is to see if this part can be replaced and secondly if this is the underlying problem or can this be a side effect of another problem within the unit. If this part can be replaced does anyone know the actual part number? Thanks for any help you can provide.

This part is called the Focus Block and has 6 controls, 3 for focus and 3 for screen. The screen is the overall brightness of the CRT and the focus is the sharpness. The part can be ordered by description from any RCA parts distributor but the controls should be set by someone with experience.

Samsung plasma screen went black. Was watching tv, heard a loud pop and the screen will no longer turn on. You can hear the tv turn on but no picture. Power is still working, just a blank screen.


Issue is either with the X or Y sustain board. Look for a cap that has blown or a cracked solid state device on the board. One of them is responsible for the ***** croak you heard.

The screen will not power up but the vizio light will light up


Hi Christian,
Your Tv gave smoke and still the Vizio icon is lighting up means the TV's initial system is ready to start but the next stage has gone bad. I do not know how good you are with electronic repairing. If you can do something, open the back cove, see the damages and let me know situation or consult someone who can do it for you. Good luck.

Heard a pop when I turned on tv and now nothing


don't leave it on and have it looked at---most likely is if it uses a lamp that may be the problem but if not it may be in the power supply.

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on


If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.
