Question about GE D52GW12 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
In searching for the same answer I've found the two following solutions. The first one definitely looking the cheapest by far. I just read it so I haven't tried the first option yet. Your convergence IC's have burnt out.
1st option: THIS SOUNDS CRAZY BUT I JUST DID IT ON MINE AND IT WORKS!!!! REMOVE THE LOWER REAR CASE ( ITS THE LARGE BLACK PLASTIC COVER WITH THE VENTS ON SIDE ABOUT 15 SCREWS IT WRAPS AROUND THE LOWER BACK OF TV) USE A HAIRDRYER AND HEAT UP THE LOWER LEFT CORNER OF THE GUTS(AS LOOKING FROM REAR) FOR 5 MINS OR SO THEN TURN IT ON. MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG UNTILL READY TO TURN ON. 2nd option:
Is the Tv worth saving? is it bright and clear? was it good (when it worked?)
if the answer to all of these is yes, then you have a few choices. If any of these are not true, then you should just get a new tv.
Your choices are:
If you are good at soldering, then you can attempt to replace the IC's yourself. (with all of the parts handy, it should take 1 hour)
If you aren't good at soldering, then you can have a friend do it for you, or you can have a mechanic fix it. (tell them that its the convergence IC's that went bad. (pay no more than $200 for the job).
here is what they look like:
(the number may be different)
Here is an idea of what your tv looks like on the inside:
(btw, to disconnect "those" all you have to do is lift up underneath where the white thing bridges the two boards and they will pop up.)
A word of the wise, do NOT open up your tv and attempt this if you don't know what you're doing. There is extremely high voltage inside, even when it's unplugged......so don't get shocked!!!
Your convergence IC's have burnt out.
