Question about GE 46GW945 46" Rear Projection Television

Ge model 46gw945

This tv was given to me by a family member. One day, I came home from work and tried to turn on the tv and it would not power up with remote or switch. A neighbor said that the lights went out earlier that day. Can someone tell me what this means?? Can I easily (not costly) repair the television?

Thanks!!

    when I try to turn the tv on, it makes a clicking noise. Someone told me that it sounds like a voltage problem and the clicking is the tv going into shut down mode so it won't burn up... Could someone confirm?

Why does my GE 46GW945 46 in.TV turn on and then right back off?


this is weak power distribution throughout the unit. you wil need to test the power supply board for blown capacitors and resistors as well. replace this vital board if you notice any swollen or disscolored componets.

Sound but no picture


The first thing to check is the connections to your source. They can easily become loose and/or corroded over time.

You will need to get to the control board and see if any of the front panel buttons are sticking. if they are not, you will have a bad switch or the remote sensor is defective. If you have no TV repair experience. you will need to consult a pro to assist you with this repair. Good Luck

TV acts like a timer is controling the power...comes on only at night


How old is this set? If any age, might be time for a replacement, you can get a 50" for under $1000 now. Dont know about your issue, I have never heard of one not turning on because of a timer, suspect you may have a micro issue, the power cord unplug would be advisable, but sounds like you tried it, have you tried the buttons on the front? Do you clean the screen with something liquid? Some of these the buttons go bad and confuse the micro if you use liquids on the screen and let some dribble down the frame. Might pull the speaker grill off and there should be 2 1/4" screws on 2 brackets loosen and the brackets will drop, the screen can come out and there is a long connector that goes from the front to just behind the middle tube and if you unplug it it will kill the buttons on the front and if it is your problem will allow the remote to function, reassemble reverse of disassembly.
