Question about GE 46GW945 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Loud buzzing noise which became a very loud screech over the last week. Turning tv off and on seemed to remedy it. Today screen was only black and white, now no video only audio. Is this the picture tube? Is it worth repairing? The tv is 14 years old but had a great picture!

This TV uses a lamp and color wheel. the color wheel is likely the problem since it is known to make noise over time and will eventually sieze. The repair is in the $400 range.

After much research, it became apparent that the most logical culprit after the lamp was the color wheel. It has been replaced and the set is working again.

Loud periodic buzzing


Are you sure this noise is not just the ice maker trying to cycle without water? If it is not turned off it will dry cycle every 15 min or so.

Very loud fan or vibration noise


Listen from the back of the TV and locate the source of the noise. There may be fan with a bad bearing. The noise will lead you to it.
