Question about GE D52GW12 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
When the TV is turned to the one position. The unit is sparking and smoke comes from the piece that looks like the transformer. It is black and stands 4 inches by 2 inches wide, if you are facing the back of the TV it is located on the left hand side.
My questions are:
(1) Can this part be replaced. If not can I replaced the board.
(2) Can this part be replaced by me?
(3) How can I get directions on removing this board.
(4) What will it take to perform this action.
note: I have used a soldering tool before and I'm not a stranger to a computer board.
I thank you for your help.
This problem seems to be very common. Do a search on google and you will find all sorts of stories of smoke, sparks, flames and melted plastic with these televisions. I believe this common problem with large sparks and flames warrants a recall.

Recently i noticed a price reduction of this Board just depends on the exact model number. You will have to replace the Horizontal output transistor which ussally bad when this happen
