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

2 Answers

Fire Hazard.... I own a 52" GE projection screen tv. It started turning its self off and then all of a sudden when it would come back on it would make this crackeling sound and sparks were shooting out the back. We took the back cover off and plugged it back in to see what was going on and it seem to be located in one little spot. I am unsure if it is even worth sending to the repair shop since I have heard from others that this tv is considered a "disposable tv". Should I even attempt to get this fixed or just buy a new tv?

Please report these problems to the consumer product safety commision. I believe this common problem with large sparks and flames warrants a recall.
