    Thank you so much so it is really called the Block Assy? I had a repair man tell me that I need a HV Splitter. I called Sony and they do not know what the HV splitter is. Is is the Block Assy and do you think I can install myself?

If you have the RA-6A chassis, you can find the part if you go to this website.

    If you intend to DIY, I would suggest be very careful because of the high voltages around the area where this Block Assy is. Before removing the old part make sure you unplug the TV from the main AC power.

    Good Luck.

When testing the hv flyback by turning on the tv, if tv stays on the hv splitter block is bad ,but what if tv turns off what you check next? thanks for the help.

first, I think you have this backwards----if splitter disconnected (look for physical signs or arcing or it burnt) the High voltage would come up and sizzle where it connects to the splitter.

If the set with the splitter disconnected still shuts down it is not the issue---got a D52 of some kind?

If the deflection power board was changed with a known good one . then the HV splitter block would be suspect then followed by a bad CRT next. I would try removing one CRT drive board at a time by letting it hang free wires attached then trying to power up the set if it doesnt power up then try one of the other crt drive boards after reattaching the one you previously unhooked. If the set powers up if any certain CRT board is removed you will know the problem is that CRT. If it doesnt power up then its most likely the HV splitter. You can get replacement CRTs, boards and HV splitters that have warranties from

Whenever there is a a spark or a flash it generally means high votage(HV) is arching either from the flyback, one of the CRT's or HV splitter/Focus block where the HV is created - It will be easy to diagnose but probably expensive to repair. Parts costs- Flyback and HV block $100-200 and CRT over $300

I have a rca p52939 that won't turn on.

Failure of the HV splitter was a very common problem when I was doing these big screens on the road. The set won't come on if the splitter shorts. We used to test if that was the cause by pulling the HV input lead out of the splitter (leaving it still inside the plastic cup so it wouldn't arc anywhere) and turning the set on. Most often the set would fire right up (without picture of course).

I believe the RCA part number for the splitter is 205064, and it's available from a number of sources. I'm not home right now so I can't check. If I have the number wrong I'll post a follow-up comment.

Hi. Quick question.

I am assuming you need to get the HV lead out to remove the board. That model if I am not mistaken has the one large Red HV lead running from the flyback to the HV splitter where the other 3 large wires run to the CRts. If this is the case the trick is to remove the wire from the flyback at the splitter, I have found its easiest to slide the red rubber boot back then use a pair of pliers with tape on the jaws so as to not hurt the wire then grab the wire as close to the splitter block as possible then using a second pair of pliers like a hammer and hit the pliers holding the HV lead and thst will force the HV cable out of the Splitter block.

Disconnect the lead from the flyback to the splitter. Place the flyback lead securely in a dry glass container and try to power up the set. If it doesnt shutdown the HV Block (splitter) is bad.

From your description ..actually this is a common problem and no simpley replacing the resistor will not fix it. this chasis has a problem with what is called the high voltage splitter.. there was a number of these made with a defective splitter. RCA HAS ISSUED a service bulliteen for certain models and serial numbers. the board and the splitter is generally replaced. (I just worked on one of these 2 days ago and got and order in for the parts) ......just reread the tech bulliteen.. the spitter which develops a crack is rca part number 258512 the resistor or the part that burnt is resistor a common 27k 1/2 watt 10% carbon resistor
