Good Day;
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.

RCA P52940 Television

The P52940 uses the CTC195 series main chassis. The most common reason for the set not to start up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. The set actually does try to start, but the computer immediately detects the extra current drawn by the shorted flyback and instantly shuts the set back off. The chassis should be checked and the flyback replaced by a qualified tech familiar with RCA projection TV's.

No power on RCA p60921

Replace the Power Supply switching transistor, If a CTC195 chassis it is the Q14101. Cost about $8.00 for part if you can do it.

The fact that the picture was curved tells me that the pincussion circuit was faulty. If your not a tech then your gonna have to get a pro to assist you with this repair as everything is soldered in and theres no user replaceable parts in this set as they are all soldered in. If you know electronics then the most common parts for the set being dead would be the hi-voltage transformer and the horizontal output.. Also the small coil l401 has to be resoldered. Now for the pincussion circuit you gotta check waveform on base of tl81 for 13.7 vpp and if its not there replace IL81 and RL81. If its is there then check the transistor TL81 and TL82 & CL85. Im sure you will find on of them to be bad. Lke I said if your not a tech you can get a bad shock piddleing with this set. Good Luck
