Question about RCA P46921 46" Rear Projection Television

3 Answers

RCA projection P46732BA no power and arcing sound

Need some help. Will not turn on and when I removed the cover, I can see arcing from the splitter box. I do have some experience with electronics but not TVs. Is the problem the splitter box or something else that caused this? Also, is there an electrical hazard to replace the splitter box once the power is disconnected? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The High Voltage Splitter is the cause of this and replacing it should fix the problem. Their should not be a shock hazard once power is diconnected. But just incase, ground each of the anode leads from the crts to ground. That should take care of any HV charge from the CRTS. Do make a note of which wire went went where, that is important. When you get the new HV Splitter, you will need to transfer the small board that is mounted on the old Splitter. Again, be aware of where the wires hook up to it and you will be fine.
Hope this helps,

TV comes on n goes off,does 3 times


This is the Famous 3 strikes and out for RCA's--it tries to come on 3 times and if fails shutdown occurs.

The high pitched sound may be a short or could be something arcing--if the sound comes from near the very front of set--could be the HV splitter this set has arcing.

When i turn on the tv 52" rca rear projection the power light goes on and off but it does not turn on.it takes everal attempts before i get picture and sound


Does it make a slight popping or cracking sound ? If so remove the back cover and see if the flyback transformer shows any sign of burning or arcing. It is located on the far rt. hand rear side with a red wire comming out of the top and a black one behind and lower than the red one.

RCA p46732ba projection TV no power.


This is a common problem and the set is in shutdown mode. It attempts to fire up three or four times (the chirp you hear) if it detects a fault it shuts down - the most likely cause is the HV (high voltage) block- caution working on it since HV is present - The repair generraly costs $200-400 P# 205064

Google your model # and HV block to see what I mean.

Tv went off and won't come back on.


the arcing sound is some kind of high voltage leak, which will shut down the tv. pull the speaker grill off and the access board, look at the 3 picture tubes, turn the set on you will see where the leak is, it's usually the high voltage splitter, which has a high voltage wire going into it and 3 high voltage wires coming out going to the picture tubes, if it arcs from the splitter you need to change it, if it arcs from one of the picture tube wires you need to pull the tube out and fix the high voltage leak, and possibly a cooling fluid leak caused it, not an easy reapir, you probably need a repairman.

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.

Projection tv not working


I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.

Yes it does sound like the flyback is bad, the only other thing that arc is a picture tube.

TV Turned off, now there is a clicking noise when plugged in.


had a 51" GE rear projection donated to myself. While off and power button pressed there was a clicking noise from the front of the unit. Rear cover was removed and it could be observed that the hv splitter had a crack in the casing and the power was arcing out of the splitter. I purchased a $72 dollar hv splitter, i read that the $20-$30 dollar one would break within a year, and the unit powered up no problems.
