Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television
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.
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.
