Question about GE 46GW947 46" Rear Projection Television
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?

SOURCE: need to warm up????
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 !!!

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.

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!
