Question about RCA P46924 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV will not turn on

When trying to turn TV on for last week or so, had to push button (remote or on the set itself) at least 7-8 times. It would finally come on. Then yesterday while watching it, it just made a loud noise, and went off. When I tried to turn it back on, it came on for a few seconds, made the loud noise, and went back off. Now it will not come on at all. It is an RCA Home Theater. Made in 1992. Model #P46130W1C. Any ideas?

Re: TV will not turn on

Probably needs a new HV Splitter block, they are very difficult to replace and can usually be accessed thru the front behind the speaker grill and behind convergence board.

I have a Mitsubishi 73"

i would suspect your control buttons on your front panel on the set have become shorted. specifically the volume buttom down. This is freezing you control functions. like someone is holding the volume down button all the time. or intermitantly. this cuircit board is on front of the set. I have seen this problem a few times at the shop. The common repair is to replace that button assembly cuircit board. I believe the last time it cost the customer around 85 dollars, but like all things depends on the part and the technician that puts it in.

For about 4 weeks in have been getting a notice when I turn the tv on about a lamp timer needed to be reset. While the TV was on it cut off by itself. This is a panasonic 43" rear projection LCD TV. It is...

While TV is on, simultaneously press and hold both the TV's Volume Down button and the remote's PP/Play button for 7 seconds.
This is the procedure for resetting the lamp timer. Have you ever replaced the lamp before? The lamps usually never last 5yrs.

Can't turn off PIP on Sony XBR videoscope TV

Hit the set up button on the TV.
You'll see options to change the language. The last option is to put the TV in "Demo Mode."
Put the TV in Demo mode, when the first screen appears, "Welcome to...." the PIP will disappear.
Hit exit before the screen moves to the "Menu." If you miss it, watch the demo once--it will restart--and hit the exit button the next time you see the "Welcome to" message.

I just did this and it worked for me - i hope it works for you.

No power no picture no sound

i would say that its time to put that tv to rest is it a projection tv? if it is then it may be the bulb but i would recomend just getting a new set because repairing your current one will cost alot and wont last long so a new one is a better option

21 error code means the set is shutting down due to xray protection. Try removing each one of the CRT PWBs one at a time and try powering up the set. replace previous removed CRT PWB before trying the remaining CRT PWbs. let me know the outcome. Please respond to this same post when replying

maybe your ac cable has a lost contact thats why when you wiggle it it will turn on. just replace your power cable first before you are going to troubleshoot the other problem.
