Open Question

RCA P61937 61" Rear Proj. No Picture

The TV is 5 years old and there is no picture through the cable input. It doesn't matter if it is the cable or a VCR or a DVD plugged in to the cable port the only way you can see the picture is in the TV Guide plus mode. I hooked up the DVD with an S-video cable and can watch DVD's no problem. Picture looks great and all three bulbs are working. I looked for a reset button on the TV a could not find one. Is there a simple fix for this?

Sounds like it could be the entire light engine.  The part is available on the Internet, but it runs $700 - $1200 without the lamp (although it sounds like you could use your existing lamp without a problem). These parts, however, are notoriously hard to find and may be backordered for months.

May not be worth the cost, but that's up to you.

On the back of the TV, you'll find the Access door to your lamp. Unplug the TV from power, and remove the screw on the access panel. Inside you'll find 2 additional screws holding in the lamp housing assembly. Remove the screws, then the lamp assembly and visibly inpect it. You'll know if the lamp is defective, it will have obvious damage. If so replace with part # 260962, you can acquire this lamp for arround 100 dollars off ebay, or 262.00 direct from RCA.

Phillips tv has red tint across screen

This brand is known for getting discolored CRT cooling fluid in the blue and green CRTs. At 10 years old, it's almost for sure .. unless never used. A bit expensive repair. Don't attempt this yourself unless you're both a TV tech and a transmission mechanic ,, LOL.

Yes. Rear-proj.with 3 picture tubes. These, like most newer tvs have self-checks that shut the tv off if the fault could worsen problems for the TV (such as damage picture tubes.) or it's not able to put a picture up.
After it shuts off, you can press menu and input/device together for 5 secs, and it will flash a 2-digit code (such as "23" or "24", etc.)(vertical or horizontal error.) Though you will need to call a repair shop for repair. It's usually better if they are Mits. factory authorized, as they'll likely have more exper. on Mits.

How much would it cost me to replace the picture tube for rca big tv screen that i got it for free ? where do i buy it at ?

A CRT (picture tube) for an RCA projection TV will cost $300-400 If the TV is more than 4-5 years old, you'll likely have to replace all 3 CRTs to obtain a watchable picture. Its probably not a good idea to spend that kind of money on a "free" TV.

5 year old RCA 50 inch projection tv. Picture went off.

If you are using component cables make sure they are all connected properly( pushed all the way in and in the correct input). I have seen the red cable come loose several times and cause no red color in the picture. When you change the lamp it is easy to pull on one of those cables and cause it to come loose.

You have bad convergence IC's.. If your not experienced in troubleshooting electronics or soldering, you should have a trained tech take a gander at the set. Its not worth risking life and limb to save a few bucks, Good Luck
