Question about RCA P46921 46" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Tv will not turn on - green light clicks on then right back off.

I have just moved my bit screen tv two times in the last 2 months. I have moved from one location to another. I have never had any problems with my TV. It is approximately 10 yrs old. It doesn't seem like it is getting a power connection. can you help me, I'm broke and don't have the money right now to call a repair man. If I can not fix it, how much do you think it will cost and what is the going fee for a repair call?? I live in Alabama. Please help me. Thank you-Deb

Some places charge just to come to your house and then they give an estimate,that could be around 40 to 50 dollars,the actual repair depends on the problem the tv has,call someone and tell them you have a money problem and if they can give a discount in the whole repair but still you need to put some money toghether,

Im sorry to inform you Deb, that your problem could be a major problem like the high voltage transformer and the horizonyal output transistor could be bad and the transformer is no longer available for these sets or could be a simple cold solder connection on a small coil or something like the flyback transformer. In any case this is a solid state set and has no user replaceable parts inside and should only be serviced by a trained tech. It could be landfill or a simple service call. Good Luck

When you turn it on, the green LAMP light goes on, then it clicks and the STANDBY/TEMP red light goes on, then clicks and back to the green LAMP light. It does this a few times, then The TIMER green light...

Usually if all 3 indicator lights come on this could be the color wheel is not functioning or the DINe chip needs to be re-soldered. Be sure the lamp door is closed all the way, but the color wheel needs to be looked at first.

I have a 51HW40 sony TV. A few problems green horizontal retrace that curves flashes green and turns off (about 2 times a month) I wait turn it back on and its fine Codes that have been tripped: 6: Low b ...

Hello: Have you tried to adjust you Green Screen control on the focus block assembly. located behind the front panel assembly. Here is a solution that might help you, turn off the green by turning off this control, make sure u look at the block and make sure you are not turning the green focus knob instead of scrn crl. Turning the control slowly to the left the retrace lines should disappear as the green video darkens. Then turn the control slowly to the right just until the retrace lines reappear, then turn back slowly left just until the lines go away. If the screen is Blanking on green tube only then you have a video blanking problem on the main signal board. Or possibly a IK bias problem. It is also possible that the green CRT is defective. The FBT is not bad because the screens are lighting up indicating you have high voltageand heater voltage which is derived from one of the secondary windings of the FB. If it is a Blanking problem i would look into replacing the A Board assembly.

NO POWER, PICTURE, OR SOUND, power button flashes green 2-3 times

check the wires inside at the left lower region as you are looking at the rear. There are several circuit boards there that tend to loosen when moved. The cables are really ribbons like those used in computers.  I'd lioke to be more specific however I'm not entirely familiar with this model, just rear projection tvs in general.
