Re: No power to my tv set.

While you were out you might have had a lost of power in the house or maybe lighting that day,if you have no lights and no indication of power at all you can start by checking the main fuse witch is close to where the power cord comes into the set,if you decide to do it yourself be carefull and make sure the set is unplug from the wall,if the fuse is open repalce it with the same type but if it blows right away you will need help from a techinician to find the short that blows the fuse.Be careful.

I have had a total of 3 blown bulbs. The last one worked for about 5 hours. When I woke up the next morning and turned the tv on it made a loud cracking sound and the bulb busted. What could be causing...

Every set that uses a lamp for brightness has a ballast----it essentially provides power to fire the lamp----power in to the ballast will be around 300 volts DC in most sets and the output to the lamp over 14,000 volts with lots of RF---like spark plug wires.

You very well could have problem with the Ballast board that powers Lamp or your Lamp Fan maybe defective and if you need orinagnal hand unit for set Call Encompass Parts Distrubtion or Go to their website type in Model number they will list Parts /Prices for your model.
1-800-638-3328 Mats Electronics also sells handunits .To reset timer
Hold VOL- on front of TV and Menu on hand unit at same time for 5secs
if this does not work try it in reverse Hold Menu down on TV and Vol- on hand unit. Check your Lamp Fan see if it quits running while turning set on,if it starts and stops it is defective, other wise Follow wires that Lamp plugs into it will connect to Ballast board that powers Lamp CK it Problem M/B Ballast Board.

Have an RCA 60" rear projection tv (Model: P60752EB, Chassis: PTK169PEC). TV will not turn on. While pressing the power button it will make a clicking noise. Otherwise, there is no picture or sound. Have...

It is the 169 chassis-over 300 different models used it and are different-answer something for me--does it have a GREEN power light that comes on for a second and goes off?

I know this set well and to be honest hated working on them--Let me know about the power light and I will tell you what I know.

At one point in time this was a very good set--I do understand about paying a lot to get it fixed and having it bad again.

I am here to help people and I bet I know more about this set than almost anyone else here.

Turn off after a few hours

If the TV turn itself off then perform the following steps:

(i) Check if the Sleep timer is activated.

(ii) Check if the Parental Guide prohibits viewing during that time and/or limits amount of viewing time per day.

(iii) Check the batteries on your remote, low battery power may cause random signals from the remote.

(iv) Disconnect all the cables from the TV then reconnect them after a few hours.

(v) Ensure the power cord from the TV is directly connected to a functional wall outlet.

(vi) You may also try resetting the TV to the original factory settings by pressing the Reset button on the remote control supplied with the TV when in Menu.

The following is the information indicated by the blinking patter of the standby/timer lamp on the TV:

2 times : Power does not come on.
Load on power line shorted.

3 times : The TV has entered standby mode.

4 times : Has entered standby state after
horizontal raster.
Vertical deflection pulse is
Power line is shorted, or
power supply is stopped.

5 times: No raster is generated.
CRT Cathode current detection
reference pulse output is small.

6 times: No picture

9 times : No sound

Furthermore, the TV is equipped with a self-diagnosis function that you can use to determine whether the issue is related to any hardware malfunctioning. Perform the step given below to run self diagnosis:

Quickly press the remote command button in the following order from the standby state.

Display -------> Channel 5 ---------> Volume -(minus) --------> Power ON.

If the Self Diagnosis display numeral "1" for any parameters then a fault has been detected and service will be required.

wish u good luck!!!!!!!!!!

Power turn off after 45 minutes to 1 hour used

Check the "Sleep Timer" settings. If set to 45 minutes then TV would automatically turn itself off 45 minutes from being turned on. The variance in the "on" times is due to the TV turning itself off after not getting a signal from the remote for fifteen minutes.

Good luck,

Blue Convergence out of sync

you need to adjust the convergence. you set up convergence 1 then 2. follow the manual. (Its easy, you just align the + signs so they make one white one (instead of three green, red, blue) sounds like something or someone bumped the tv, causing the blue lens to shift a little.

RCA Colortrak plus. Model# F32672SB Serial # 807560570 Chassis # CTC187CJ3 Manufacture Date Feb 1998 Service # F32672SBFM3 4/21/08- TV worked fine last night. This morning worked for about an hour. ...

It's probably a cracked solder joint in the power supply / horizonal drive stages. As the unit heats up the joint is seperating and breaking connection. It could also be a component failing when it gets hot. Usually the voltage regulator or Horizonal Output Transistor (both mount to heat sinks).

If you know how to solder and want to tinker, unplug the set for a couple days (to let the power capacitors discharge) and resolder and crystalized it cracked joints on the board(s) where the power stages, and flyback transformer are located.

If you decide to operate the set with the back off, please be careful. The high voltage on a TV can be 30,000+ volts.

Hope that helps,

Read the suggestion of unplugging the TV for at least 4 hours to re-set to factory specs and that took care of it!

Chirping noise

Sounds like something may be shorted out inside keeping the power supply loaded enough it wont start, dont recommend trying to fix unless you know EXACTLY what you are doing, there are some high voltages inside, I wold Call a TV tech out to repair, Just FYI, these sets from Phillips/MAG usually have CRT fluid getting cloudy causing discoloration/fog to pix around this age and older, between both repairs, some sets start around $1000, just an idea.
