Rca p52151WK projection tv problem

When the TV is on for about 10 minutes (warmed up), it recently started making a loud popping and cracking sound. The picture also blinks in a pixelized manner. What needs to be done? How can I fix this.?
Thanks,
Jack DeHaven

It is not worth to fix,even if you could do it. With the replacement part cost,you might as well buy a new TV.With the economy today,and Circuit City is filing Chapter 11,and best buy is hurting,you could get a knock out deal from a retail store!

Projection tv not working


I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.

32 RCA makes popping sounds


It needs a new FLY BACK transformer. That is what you are looking at. The origionals are not made for the set any longer but insist on having a generic on installed by a local TV shop. I just put one into a RCA 31" and it works nice. Don't throw away the TV. Get it fixed. MAKE SURE YOU INSIST THEY USE THE GENERIC ONE! THEY DO WORK!

P52151WK 52" projection TV, no video


Is the audio coming from the TV's internal speakers, or from an external sound system? In the 169 series chassis, if the power supply caps or secondary rectifier are bad, or if the high voltage splitter has shorted inside, the set will not run and there will be no picture or sound from the TV. If the picture is completely black but the TV still has audio, press the menu button and see if the menu comes up on the screen. If the menu is there, check your cables on the back of the TV. If you are using a cable or satellite box, the box could be bad or the video wire could be bad or loose. If you do not get the on-screen menu, then I would guess that the solder joint next to the flyback transformer that sends filament (heater) voltage up to the picture tubes has cracked, or the low value resistor in the heater circuit has opened up. If that is the case, have the set serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the 169 series chassis.

RCA F27667 No Picture / Chirping sound


I will bet you 10 to 1 that the flyback transformer and the horizontal output transistor is bad. an no at this point the set is not worth fixing.
