Question about GE D52GW12 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Green screen for 30 seconds, then shuts down

My dad has a GE D52GW12YX2. It is about three years old. The other day it was on and jsut shut itself off. The next morning when he turned it on there was a spark in the bottom of the unit and he said he thought he saw some smoke. Now when I turn it on the screen is all green but the sound works. It then shuts off after a few minutes.

I looked inside the cabinet and saw that the green tube is the only one working.

Projection TV keeps shutting down


Good Day;

Sounds like you have a bad green picture tube that has failed. To check this out; remove front speaker grill, remove small panel, you will see three CRT's (pictue tubes) sticking down, remove the little board on the middle tube then restore power. If TV stays on more then likely the CRT is bad but not always the driver on board could also be bad, check voltages.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

Philips 46pp9302 about 5-6 yrs old after 20-30 min. shuts off


Just posted this elsewhere:

Is the cooling fan running?

If not, the set may be designed to shut down after a few seconds to protect itself (and you).

Hitachi 46510 blue screen-Shuts down


Good Day, 6slimshandy9;

Try and look this;

Shuts down at turn on, LEDs D955 & D956 come on & turn off asap, the rest of the LEDs on power supply will go off slowly.
Cause: Found QEA6 (2315381) and QEA7(2315391) shorted in Blue CRT PWB.

I hope this was helpful, big IRISH. Or try unplugging the blue crt socket and if it turns off. If it stays on suspect bad CRT.

My TV did the same thing for a couple of years. It is the precursor to the capasitor going out on the DM board. The good thing is that the capacitors only cost around 4 dollars if you can soldier them yourself.

2. could be the vertical ic on the crt board

 

3. could be the focus pac.  located in front of tv with 6 adjustment knobs on it.
