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

1 Answer

TV shuts self off

The TV power light comes on when I turn on the TV, but the screen stays blank and it makes a fizzling/crackling sound for about 5 seconds, then shuts itself off? Can I somehow repair this myself or am I better off looking for a new TV? Thanks

    i try to turn on tv and it makes a fizzle sound and then does not turn on . Is it the power supply or what

    I have had my TV now for 5 years and never had one problem with it but now I have the same problem as you. It turns on, fizzles and shuts off. I can smell a faint smell of electrical burning from the back left corner. I'm thinking it may be time to get a new tv!

First of all, sorry for the mix up on model the model #. I was viewing a problem regarding LG LCD TVs and found your link. My problem is with an LG 42LGX LCD HDTV. It has worked fine without any issues...


Hi,

welcome to fixya and thank you choosing my service..

OK,that is the most and common problem of all LCD TV...

Usually dim and totally have no back-light is cause of bad inverter board.One of the inverter board is shorted that cause dim light and crackling sounds..

This are the sample images of inverter board.
1_22_2012_1_29_43_am.jpg

to make sure that the problem is on the inverter board kindly try to disconnect/unplug it from your TV and power ON then observe if the crackling sounds remain or not..If the crackling sounds gone replaced the inverter board..Also I need to how many inverter board you have? if 2 or more disconnect it one by one to determine if where is the specific faulty inverter board..

Example:
I disconnect #1 inverter still have crackling sounds..next disconnect #2 inverter and reconnect the #1 inverter until you found the faulty one..Note when you doing this make it sure you power off the TV before you unplug or disconnect inverter board because its high voltage..

I need the picture your TV screen..just send it to chesterpendilton@yahoo.com

Regards.
Chester

Turn on tv, only stays on 5 seconds, shuts off. crackling sound in back


Capacitors need replacement on the power supply. It is being over drawn for voltage. I would repair before turning it on again as this is hard on your tv.


Thank you and best of luck!

Tv turns on but makes an electric cracking sound and shuts off another one turns on then the screen wigs out and turns off with the power light flashing


Try to unplug tv from the power source for 2-5 minutes and if still have the crackling sound it means the tv needs to be fix. So check your tv's warranty and call the tv's manufacturer to have it fix or replaced.

Picture & sound go on & off every sec, red light blinks 5 times


helloFive blinks - AKB circuit (automatic kine bias), the timer/standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board, also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. In addition, unit could be in IK blanking, try turning up screen slightly.

My Philips 20PT633 has started shutting off mid program.


Consult your technician there is a semiconductor problem inside your tv. Probably lose connection, and need to resolder.

Tv turns self off when turned on


Does it blink a certain amount of blinks pause a second or just blink constantly with no pauses? Let me know it will blink a code if its going into protected shutdown. And it will blink constantly for another reason.
