Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer


I hope all is well with you. I have a RCA rear projection TV model P52923. I was watching a show when it just turned off. I tried to turn it back on, but it clicked 3 times like it tries to power sometimes 4. I tried both the remote control and the TV buttons but it still would not turn on.

I opened the back panel and check the small glass fuse in the power supply ( # CTC195 series) or (chassis PTK195K2B). The fuse is good. This fuse is near the 120V supply chord.

When the TV is plugged in, I hear a ticking sound that gradually slows down and disappears. I figure it is a capasitor or relay not a repair man but ususally i can fix anything if i am showed or told 1 time just need some opinions or if you might know what it is there would be many thanks. The wife has been on my case since HER television broke down. SO had to buy her alot smaller 19" flat lcd its not the same and it died today to but i was able to track it down to the power supply cord it was pulseing too just not clicking i was almost dead when it turned off for no reason the look from her almost burnt a hole through me.(My only test instrument is a digital multi-meter.)

I could not find the model number of my TV from the products listed on the tab. So I picked the closest one which is RCA P52926.

Good Day;
The most common problem with these Models/ Chassis' is IHVT (intergrated high voltage transformer) going bad. They have around 99% failure rate. T14401 > part number > 239111 >IHVT.
Try to get RCA part a little more pricey but more reliable then after market ones. You can tell if it's bad by the crust on the top of IHVT.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

My Volume and Channel button won't work and so I have bout 2 remotes, neither of them have worked, one is the RCR311BR remote which has been noted to work for this tv. What else can I do

I have a 2000 model RCA P52923 and I had the same problem occur a couple of days ago. The sound hasn't worked for a couple of years, but the TV is connected to an RCA surround sound to resolve that issue. Most recently, while watching TV, it began to start scanning channels by itself. I shut it off and unplugged it for a couple of days, but each time that I turn it on, it begins to immediately start scanning each channel. Neither the remote, nor the channel buttons on the set are able to stop the scanning, and neither of them will perform any functions, including turning the set on and off.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

RCA Projection TV Model P52923

Good Day, Ajejo;
Sorry I'm not Circuit City, but work for them for many years down here in TX.
The chassis number is the best way to find out information about the TV. The CTC195K3 is very commonly known to have bad 'flyback'. The crusting you indicated on top of said transformer is the indication that it is defective, I've changed 80-90 of them over the years.
So, job well done, your wife must be proud of you.
Part information: Location; T14401, Part Number; 239111, Name; IHVT, Integrated High Voltage Transformer.
Caution when replacing the fly, looking at the bottom, the pins are shaped like a horse shoe. At the closed end there is an separate pin. Make sure new has the extra pin (for focus), Iv'e had many lately that does not have it.

Good Luck, big IRISH. PS; good job good eye let me know.
