SOURCE: Have an RCA 60

It is the 169 chassis-over 300 different models used it and are different-answer something for me--does it have a GREEN power light that comes on for a second and goes off?

I know this set well and to be honest hated working on them--Let me know about the power light and I will tell you what I know.

At one point in time this was a very good set--I do understand about paying a lot to get it fixed and having it bad again.

I am here to help people and I bet I know more about this set than almost anyone else here.

Tv shuts itself off or on on its own.


Hi - definitely needs a service call. I believe it is a problem with a specific integrated circuit. Not user servicable. I have the 20 inch version of this set and it was one of their better models, more sophisticated chassis, etc. Might be worth fixing if you like the set.

Hi there, I have a question on an RCA 60" rear projection (P60756BA) The unit started smelling one night so we unplugged it when I tried it out again the sides of the TV on the picture were "bowing" or...


It is a convergence problem and the board is getting hot if you can smell it. Fire is the risk of running this TV. To properly repair this all 3 boards should be replaced simultaneously as recommended by the maker. You are looking at $300 +labour and a lot of syncing with the right tools here. Cheaper to have it fixed than play around with a TV that is difficult to get boards syncronised without the correct tools and diagrams You have to decide what is the decision fix or discard

Turned on tv no picture only sound then i heard a pop and smelled burning tv turned itself off. 5 min tried turning on tv again nothing happened tv does not turn on at this time


Your RCA TV needs serious troubleshooting. Burning smell is from HV transformer or resistors smoking.

Most likely power supply and/or high voltage circuit or convergence circuit. Many times RCA have multiple or secondary faults that occur with HV or convergence failure.

Repair of RCA HV or convergence usually requires exact manufacturer parts and upgrades or repair in power supply. I would not advise trying this repair without manufacturer support for correct part numbers and service bulletins.

My Philips 60 inch rear projection TV model


Mute the volume and listen at the rear of the unit. You should be able to hear a fan running since these have hot-spots that require some kind of air movment to keep them from overheating. There are protective circuits that will shut down the power supply once a critical temperature is reached.
The second possibility is the power supply itself; these sophisticated units are very energy efficient but have components in them that age and lose their function over time. The main supply should be fairly easy to spot; it will have larger components on it, some cylindrical (capacitors), others block-like.
If the fan is running and it is still shutting down, this supply may need repair or replacement. Look for a part number on the board and inquire at the manufacturer's service center about those possibilities. Have your model & serial numbers of the set available too.

Rca ctc195 big screen tv trouble


Hi,
You are likely to have a high voltage transformer bad which is common problem for ctc 195 RCA If you look into the back of the tv it is the white square looking thing about 3 inches across by 3 inches with the large red wire coming from it and going back into the set. Must have original RCA part and must be unsoldered and solder in new one. Not to be done by the untrained. Average cost to come out and repair is $250 to $300. depending on the repairman (Note: the chassis is in a complete wooded chipcore box that will come out with quarter inch nutdriver and unplug two plugs at the top of the box The box or chassis can be taken to the repair shop leaving the screen at your home saving a service call. Hope this helps
