RCA P60920BL 60 in. Rear Projection Television Fuse

I replaced the horizontal output and now when I plug in the t.v. it blows the fuse.
Do you have any suggestions as to why this is happening?

    I did replace the flyback and horizontal both. It was not blowing fuses before this.

    I will check the soldering around the flyback and clean up any blobs. The horizontal out was easy to solder and nothing too close to it.

    After taking a close look at the board with a magnifying glass...I think when replacing the horizontal output I accidentally broke off some other small resistor or something.

    Do you know if I can just buy a whole new circuit board for this t.v. and if so can you please let me know where?

I am assuming that you preplaced the flyback and horizontal out together. Even if you did, was it blowing fuses before? Usually with this chassis, the horizontal will not blow the fuse. It will just keep the swith mode power supply from operating. Double check and make sure you didn't have a soldered blob get away from the iron and "splash" somewhere on the board

    Unfortunately, you can't got those boards. They are component level repair boards. Your next step is to have a tech come in with the schematics and troubleshoot the problem. To me, these are easy chassis to repair and if I was in youarea I know I could get you taken care of relatively easy. On the homepage, type in your zip code and see if you can find a good servicer

Rca P60920BL starts steady chirping when plugged in

This is usually the flyback transformer (IHVT-integrated high voltage transformer) and the HOT( horizontal output transistor) The transistor will read shorted, with a multimeter, if it is bad. It is mounted to a heatsink straight back from the flyback. It may have a metal clip that holds it tight to the heatsink.
It is a pretty easy fix if you can solder.
While you have the board out, check for any discolored resistors and replace those as they will likely fail before long and cause more problems. Also check with a bright light and a magnifier for cracked solder joints and resolder any that you find.

RCA P60920BL wont power up makes clicking sound

This is a chassis PTK195 and acommon fault with these sets, that causes the symptom you describe, is the flyback transformer goes bad.
If you're at all familiar with electronic repair you could start checking there (and horizontal output transistor shorts). If not have an RCA approved warrany repairer give you an estimate/service call.
Note: the good thing about these sets is the chassis is very common and easily removed for service (without bringing in the whole set.) .
Usual cost to repair flyback/ dead set symptoms $200-$350.

I just purchased a used RCA P60920BL 60 in. Rear Projection Television. It worked for the first 3 days and then just went black and started making a chirping sound. I read a bit online and seemed to be the...

Right in front of the flyback, on a metal heatsink, you will see a transistor. This is the Horizontal out transistor ans is probably shorted. Look at number on the front of the transistor for ordering. It will be 2SC5148, 2SD1878, or something like that.
Make sure the unit is unplugged while working on it

Tv won't come on

Beeping in that model usually refers to the flyback needing to be replaced or the Horizontal output transistor. Flyback is most likely the cause as the HOTransistor will usually blow a fuse causeing the set to be dead.

Tv wont come on

first tap the set to see if it comes on, if it does not then your power supply circuit needs to be resolder take it to a tech to do that for you, if you are not a tech.if it does not then you are having a serious problem that is to say the following could be defective regulator in the power supply microchip in the standby power supply.high voltage protection circuit.flyback transformer,and all associated components for the above.good luck.
