Question about RCA P61960 61" Rear Projection Television
We had a power failure during a lightening storm. When the power was restored,the tv still had power but no picture or sound. I looked for a reset button around the exterior of the tv,but didn't find one. Someone mentioned that the tv may have a fuse that could be replaced. If someone can help me with this or any other possible solutions,I would appreciate it !

Well, this is a difficult situation. I assume your unit will not power up and this can be several problems in this unit and will most likely require someone with troubleshooting experience. I would suggest finding a repair service that gives free or reasonable estimates if you bring the unit to them and haul it in for the estimate. This unit has chronic failures of the deflection/power bd. as well as the convergence power supply and convergence amp. bds. I have also had several with shorted crts, and shorted ic's on the crt drive bds. so It is impossible to guess.

Most likely there was one or more marginal connections on the main board and moving the set has completely opened those connections. If you can solder, try resoldering any connections on the boards that appear to be grainy or have rings. Update this with the results. That may resolve the problem. If not, we'll look further into the set for component failures.

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.

Just found this trying to figure out what was wrong with my same model tv. Since mine was under warantee, I had the repairman troubleshoot it. He changed the lamp and the tv started working normally again.
I didn't understand how the lamp could be bad if it lit up while the tv was on. He said the tube was probably using too much voltage or too little voltage to run, so the tv would turn itself off and on in an attempt to receive the correct voltage from the lamp.
I realize this is 9 months late, but maybe it can help someone else who has this problem. I can't believe there are only 3 rca dlp's out there with this problem.
