Question about GE 46GW947 46" Rear Projection Television

Open Question

HI. I have an older projection tv. None of my inputs appear to work anymore. I was using video input 1 since I got the tv years ago. A few months ago I fell asleep with the tv on. When I woke up, the picture was snow and the sound was static. I tried Input #2 and same thing. I switched to the s cable hook up and bingo, I had picture and sound again. Last night I fell asleep with the tv on and woke up to snow on the screen and the sound of static. Any ideas of what the problem is? Other than falling asleep with the tv on? LOL Any help appreciated. Thanks!!

Your problem is a bad main filter, a regulator IC ,and or a combination of a convergence problem along with a vertical IC going bad. This set is not something you should mess with unless your a trained tech. Please seek a pro to assist you with this repair. good Luck

SOURCE: microwave does not heat

What could cause this problem coud be a bad door switch, a bad HI Voltage capacitor, a bad power transformer, a bad Rectifier, a bad magnatron,or a bad circuit control board. Any one of these repairs could run from 65 to fix, all the way up to 200 bucks. You are probablt right, its time to buy a newer type with more lights, bells, and whistles. Good Luck

Ensure that there are no conductive material's (metallic thread, fine wire such as shielding braid)near your Aux inputs that may be shorting your connections. You could also try using an emory board or fine sand paper, or even a pot scrubber on your inputs and RCA plugs in case it's just simply dirty and hampering the connectivity.

I had my TV 3 years...a week ago just wasn't able to switch to AV-1 or AV-2....I use one for my DVD player and the other for Wii...None of them working anymore...I mean the TV screen just shows...

Good Morning

On your tv there is one board that takes all those inputs and decides which to display to the the screen. It is not uncommon for these to go bad and one input or another will no longer work.

These boards can be replaced and are available most days on shopjimmy or ebay, However most people just use the inputs that still function until the tv dies.

Wish I had better news but that appears to be your problem

Have a great weekend

How do I change my remote for TV to Input Video 1?

There should be a button on your remote denoting "Input." If you connect the DVD player to the TV on "video input 1" then push the input button on the remote or TV itself until the DVD appears on your TV (which will be Video 1). Some TVs must have the component (in your case) the "DVD" player connected to the TV before the TV will recognize it. Make sure the DVD is powered up and then push the input button until the DVD player appears on the TV. Depending on your TV inputs, there may be multiple inputs like, Video, Component, DVI, or HDMI. The above are listed in the respective order of "quality." HDMI being the best. Whatever input you hook the DVD player up to on the TV will be the "input" you will look for when pressing the input button. Hope this helps.

RCA HD52LP: Composite video inputs don't work

RCA Authorized service tech looked at it. He determined that the DM Module need to be replaced. The part alone costs $550 + labor. Since the HDMI and component video inputs seem to work, he suggested buying a VCR DVD combo with HDMI output which would be far less than repairing the tv itself. I'n researching the possibility of purchasing the part myself.

LOST DIRECTIONAL BOOKLET & CAN'T GET UNIT TO WORK !

These players don't play through channels like the old school VCRs or some early DVD players.
This is either connected through your HDMI or component video cable input on your HDTV.
You need to toggle through your inputs on your TV to the proper one where your BD Player is connected through.
If you have it connected to an analog TV, then you need to toggle through your TV inputs as well. Usually called Video 1, Video 2, Etc.

I feel really dumb asking this question but I have an LXI tv and i can't find the place to plug in the wires for the DVD player ( I think its called RCA) I can't imagine that a TV would not even have a...

Hi hula,

If it's an older TV it's possible that it did not have RCA inputs (composite video inputs). If it's not on the back, often it's in the front but hidden behind a plastic panel that opens down to reveal the input and perhaps a few more buttons.

Is there an "Input" button on the remote or on the front panel? If yes, then the video input is there somewhere, maybe hidden behind a door.

If all you see is one screw looking connector on the back where the antenna or cable TV goes to, then you have an older TV without a video input. You can still use a gizmo called an RF modulator to put the signal on TV channel 3 or 4. They cost from $10 to $20. You'll lose the really good DVD quality, but the quality will still be very good and still let you use your TV.

Hope that helps,

-Vince

Component Video inputs do not work

I started back in the day of tubes. A family would have one set and it would be a 19" black and white. There are different resolutions now. The components probably do work, but, they don't pass the 480i signal. The satelite converter's analog signal needs to be set to 480p and the DVD needs to be set to progressive if it does have that setting. If the DVD is not a progressive scan DVD, then, the only inputs that it will show on is the analog signal. Some of the dish converters have a switch on the face for changing the resolution. If yours doesn't then put it in an analog source and go to the menu and change it there. Then move it to the component input. Hope this helps.
