Caused by failure of the LCD Panel. The fact that it only happens on a cold start means the inverters (part of the LCD Panel) are bad and the only way to fix it is to replace the whole LCD Panel. The Part is very expensive (usually about $2000) and time consuming to replace (need to take whole TV apart).

After about ten minutes the picture goes blank but


It sounds like the main board may have went on the TV. It should be not that costly to replace

GE 46GW948 shuts off when cold then works fine


This is a classis symptom of poor solder connections that when heated connect well. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. Resolder any connections that appear to be grainy or have rings. Note: The most likely location of these poor connections are at the convergence ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heatsink and should be marked STKxxx. There are high voltages floating around inside these sets even when unplugged, so be careful.

Keep me posted.

The TV turns on and you can hear the sound but the picture is dark except for a thin line of blue dots in the center of the screen.


You have whats known in the biz as a cold solder connection on the vertical output IC or on the associated components. Not a job for the handi-man unless you know the issues with safty, and precautions to take with Hi voltage inside of tv sets. Shouldnrt cost much for the local shop to find your problem . Now on rare occations the poor connections are inside the IC and the IC has to be replaced. Good Luck
