P61940 RCA TV does not turn on.

I have an RCA projection TV - model P61940. The TV no longer turns on at all. I checked the small fuse at the back where the AC wire terminates and it is not blown. Any suggestions as to what this may be ?

How do i find the capacitors? Because my p61940 wont turn tries but only makes a noise and shuts off! Is the tv even worth keeping? Is it a cheap fix?

Good morning
as to your question if it's worth keeping most of these sets have fantastic pictures and are still out there working away . however that's a personal call if your ready for a new set .
its most likely a fly-back transformer its most likely a high voltage splitter block that has failed its accessible from the front behind the speaker grill and a center door its part no is 240619 and can be tricky in getting the wires back in so there is no arcing from the high voltage if you have to call a repairman expect around a 200 repair bill

No,check for loose FBT-flyback tranformer connections a big black block of a plastic with a wire to a board section call highvoltage deflction board area.Useally the FBT is dead,require replacing and trouble shoot the deflection board area for other dead parts.Get quote prices from shops.Must hire a tv Tech. must do alot trouble shooting and replacing components.

TV does not turn on model RCA D61W20B

first check all fuses they are small, square ,RED and can be confused with the square small caps. the sizzling is prob. the flyback transformer (what the h.v. wires from each tube plugs into) if you are only getting green then tv shuts down or is dead now. i would replace any bad fuses and replace the flyback transformer. also make sure you do a very good visual inspection of all the boards.

Contact a Technician to check your HV section of your TV, sometimes the heater on CRT have no supply.

Take the back off the TV look where the wire from the power plug enters the TV. There is a small fuse on the board where the wire plugs into. If that fuse is blown, you have a power supply problem.
