GE D52GW12 turns off

We bought our GE D52GW12 in 2004. Recently it started turning off just after 5 min. When tried to turn it on after 10 min or so, it would work sometimes. Yesterday it stopped turning on at all. When pres the button or remote we hear crackling noises and nothing else happens. What is the problem? Thanks!

    Are getting your D52GW12 fixed or buying a new one? Have you looked into the cost of fixing it?

    The TV has worked fine for a few years, now it will shut off after running for a little while. It will turn back on by it self sometimes, or it wont come back on at all. It has been happening more and more frequent and last night it wouldn't turn on at all. The power light comes on and shuts right off again. What should I do?

    Same problem. TV manufactured in 2004. Sparks, smoke, etc etc. I didn't have a TV repairman look at it, but I talked to one and he said about $300 to $400.

    We've had the TV for about 4 years...recently, we would watch tv and it would flicker on and off or completely shut off...We would wait a few minutes and turn back on only to have it shut off again. Every now and then, it stays on, but it is gradually getting worse.

The CRT on the left will need to be replaced. You can test it by removing the CRT drive board from the bottom of that tube and leaving it suspended without unplugging any wires. try plugging it back in and pressing power. If it powers up with that drive board hanging off the bottom of that tube then you know thats the issue and the CRT ( tube) will need replacement. You can get the replacement CRTs ( tubes) from www.tvrepairworld.com

Try resoldering the flyback transformers connections on the board. Its very common for the flyback pins to develope cracks around the pins which can cause that issue. I would check that first with that model.

My tv attemps to turn on sound starts but when picture starts the system turns off.GE model d52gw12


This set shares the same chassis as some of the RCA models so More than likely a problem with the Horizontal deflection or the flyback transformer. Its not really something that the average person should take on and without the proper test equipment you could do more damage than good. But thats a starting point.
