Question about GE 46GW947 46" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

No picture, no sound on Ge 52GW947

It just will not turn on. Any ideas? I have 2 GE 46GW947 model tv's. One will not turn on. It makes a zapping noise (almost sounds like a tazer) when you turn power on. The other has picture but no sound except loud static noise. Any ideas what this could be?

Sounds like something wrong in the tuner circuit How about performing a by-pass test? Use the A/V 1 or 2 inputs on the bottom rear of tv to hook-up signal.Use dvd or source box.When the set is cold,turn on and check.If the pix & sound are good,then the tv has a tuner problem. If you can live with two inputs,no repairs need to be done.Caution:observe funky,side-ways hook-up on A/V 2 !!!

SOURCE: my tv attemps to turn on sound starts but when

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.

SOURCE: GE 46GW947 tv colors wont align, screen looks

You need the convergence board reworked. You may try www.TvRepairKits.com. This set may be to old for this website. I would suggest looking at Union Electronics for a replacement board. Call 1 800 648 6657. For safety sakes find a TV technician or or an electrician to install this for you! Thanks for asking!

NO SOUND ON GE 46GW947 TV


Look first to see if the set has the GUIDE PLUS LOGO ON THE FRONT OF THE CABINET OR in the menu, if so unplug set and plug it back to get sound back.

Things to check that are easy, look first:

Does set have sound with a DVD etc connected to a rear input?

Does set have a setting for turning the speakers off or to external speaker hookup?

last might be a actual audio circuit problem but I have never seen that in this model.

Projection not functioning properly


this is a common problem in the projection tv faced by many users.that the sound goes out and comes properly when using dvd player on it.but its the problem of weak sound ic on the main board of the tv that has to be replaced its also called the audio ic. as the sound only comes because the dvd itself has its sound ic in the device so the sound comes from that ic which you get.

Picture and sound gone


The Flyback Transformer is probably shorted to the core and shorted out the Horizontal Output Transistor. Changing both will probably fix your problem. Let me know if this helps.

Convergence option is missing


you have a problem in the deflection board causing the convergence menu to drop out, and the audio out put is causing your problems with audio. You can get parts at this link. Just let them know your model number and they will get back to you quickly.
