GE D52GW12 52 in. Rear Projection TV, serial#. 101551428, chassis PTK195p2b, Servie # 52GW948YX2 TV keeps getting slowly darker, is there a lightbulb inside that I can replace...TV is perfect other than...


There is something else you can try if the set has not been "serviced" for several years.

This model has three picture tubes with large black lens on top of each, if the set is in a dusty area and the lens have never been cleaned, dust on the lens will gradually make the picture duller and darker.

Unplug set and remove back cover, see if you can see the three large lens and if so wipe them clean with a lens cloth or a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on it.

Let me know if you need more information.

Sparks and burning plastic


Leave the back off and try to power the set on...be ready to pull the plug. Whatever is sparking/smoking is your bad part. On this TV I would suspect the flyback transformer or grey rectangular polyester capacitor mounted in front of a heatsink on the left.

Sounds like it could be a problem with high voltage stages. Definitely a job for a TV technician as it is dangerous try to repair it yourself.

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
