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

1 Answer

Need receipt for refund?

My four year old GE D52GW12 hdtv has had started the same problem of turning on as posted by so many here (crackling, blinking lights, ect.). Today it took FOUR HOURS to turn the thing on (for the last month or so it's taken about 30-40 minutes). I want a refund and will call the number posted. However, I cannot find the receipt and we paid cash for it. Is this going to make a difference? Are we stuck with a tv that we don't know if today is the day it DOESN'T turn on?

I Received Full Refund


I received a full refund for this tv, Monday Oct 6, 2008. Thomson had a courier pick up this tv at my home 2 weeks ago. Just call the numbers I have left on this website. They will try to pro-rate tv or avoid paying you the taxes you paid, SO, DO NOT accept anything other than a Complete Refund + Taxes YOU PAID for this tv.

My tv attemps to turn on sound starts but when picture starts the system turns off.GE model d52gw12


This set shares the same chassis as some of the RCA models so More than likely a problem with the Horizontal deflection or the flyback transformer. Its not really something that the average person should take on and without the proper test equipment you could do more damage than good. But thats a starting point.

Flashing


Pop and flash meaning that the picture turns on and off? Many people's tv eventually just turns off all together. Furthermore, if you notice a crackling sound, it isn't just the sound of the tv turning off, it is the sound of sparks and flames emitting from the back of the television. Take notice of this as it is a fire hazzard. If you do notice this, please report the problem to the consumer product safety commision. I beleieve this common problem with large sparks and flames warrants a recall.

HELP! Fire Hazzard!


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
