Question about GE 46GW947 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence option is missing

I have a GE 46GW947 that has 2 old from several years ago and one new one since last night.
The new problem occurred this morning when I first turned on the TV. It's like watching a 3D movie without the red and blue glasses. I access the "Menu" with the remote and from the "Screen Menu" I have options 1 (Closed Caption Display), 2 (Closed Caption Mode) and 3 (Menu Language) and 0 (Exit). The one for option 4 (Adjust Projection TV) is no longer showing, it's gone. It's always been there before. Any ideas as to what happened or how to get it back would be greatly appreciated. GE tells me that they do not support this Projection TV, see below and I would say they have not supported it since the day it was released.

The old problem is that the on-board sound has not worked since 13 months after the set was purchased, (I now use external speakers from the cable box for sound) and after many many attempts to get a part # from GE (RCA) they still cannot find one. They cannot even tell me if a computer sound card would work in the set. Thank You, A Grateful Consumer

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.

I have a problem with the control panel on my GE Electric oven.

Sounds like you have a control board issue. It should give you some kind of code instead of nothing. You can order a new one if you want but they are about $200 and up plus shipping.

I have a GE 52 " rearprojection flat screen picture TV 4 years old. The color conveyance is off and it will not realign using the remote. Help!!

If the convergence option is still visible under the picture settings in the menu. Then the problem will usually be related to the convergence power supply board, which is the board on the far left which is suspended over the main chassis. You can get the convergence power supply board, or have yours repaired at

Yes the control panel will need to be replaced. The problem now is these solid state controls and probably made in Mexico. 40 yrs ago everything was mechanical and had fewer problems.
