RCA P52151WK- No power

While the TV was being used it made a pop noise and shut off. Since then it does not show a Standby light or anything. Does this sound like a HV power supply or the HV splitter? Where can i find the parts to fix it?

Re: RCA P52151WK- No power

According to Sears the reflection board has shorted out due to a voltage leak in one of the tubes. It would cost about $450 to replace the reflection board and the problem was almost guaranteed to happen again in 3 months if the tube wasn't replaced as well. Since the TV is so old the tubes are hard to come by and too expensive to fix compared to the cost of todays LCD and Plasma flat screens.

It is not worth to fix,even if you could do it. With the replacement part cost,you might as well buy a new TV.With the economy today,and Circuit City is filing Chapter 11,and best buy is hurting,you could get a knock out deal from a retail store!

No , if fuse was blown you would not get the popping. How old is unit ? It sounds like your high volt splitter. common problem with rca. repair should not cost more than 250.00. you will want to have chassis number  and manu date for help

P52151WK 52" projection TV, no video

Is the audio coming from the TV's internal speakers, or from an external sound system? In the 169 series chassis, if the power supply caps or secondary rectifier are bad, or if the high voltage splitter has shorted inside, the set will not run and there will be no picture or sound from the TV. If the picture is completely black but the TV still has audio, press the menu button and see if the menu comes up on the screen. If the menu is there, check your cables on the back of the TV. If you are using a cable or satellite box, the box could be bad or the video wire could be bad or loose. If you do not get the on-screen menu, then I would guess that the solder joint next to the flyback transformer that sends filament (heater) voltage up to the picture tubes has cracked, or the low value resistor in the heater circuit has opened up. If that is the case, have the set serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the 169 series chassis.
