SOURCE: 61 inch proj. warped concave picture.

Josh Any chance you could send a photo... Too many ideas come to mind from what you've described. Would actually have to see the "warp" in the picture itself to see if it's one or all colors, any boarders and if the bend is actually pulling from top or bottom.. Bill

Mine blinks like 5 or 6 times - picture goes out, but sound stays. It has been at the repair shop for 1.5 months and the tech finally sees the problem. He says 3 new tubes will fix it, but the blue is discontinued. Can anyone confirm?

Sounds a lot like a thermal effect.
Buy a can (or maybe two) of freeze spray from an electronics supply company; figure on $5-6 per can.
Open the back of your set and look for a board with larger components on it and fewer small parts; this should be the power supply board. Either enlist a helper or (I prefer) use a mirror so you can see the screen. When the streak appears, hustle behind the set and spray selectively individual components on that board. If you can influence the line, repeat the treatment in a smaller area until you are fairly sure which one is temperature sensitive.
If the component is marked with text, record it. If it is color-coded right down the colors starting from the end closest to the first band. 
If you don't want to learn a new skill, namely soldering, you could remove the board and bring it to a repair shop and let them know what to replace.
If you don't find anything sensitive on that board, the problem is going to cost more. You will have to repeat the same procedure using the spray on other boards until you have isolated the trouble area. If you can't single out a specific component, it will have to be sent to one of those 'factory authorised' repair places since failures of parts on the main board will have to be sorted out and then the board will have to be tested in operation and only that kind of repair facility will have the right hardware to do it.

I have an RCA rear projection TV with a dead fly behind the screen, how do I get it out?

pop the speaker grill off, then take out the 1/4 inch screws and remove the screen, if it's behind the screen, simply brust it away, if it's between the 2 screens, then you must take them apart and remove the body. also while your in there, clean the lenses and mirror with some windex, this will greatly improve your picture.

Hello yvettegarcia,

You can try, but the problem is it won't work, you can join the two with clear glue, but the seem will show up in your picture, very much the way a patched screen displays the repair seen when it has been repaired. I would suggest getting in contact with RCA and ordering a new screen.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

RCA 52" Mdl P52939, PTK195S16B

but there are two
quick things you might be able to do. If it is a PTK195 you can most
likely install the updated power supply board. If you can solder and
know safety (like discharging caps) you can update the PS chip from an
STK730-??? to an STK730-180 (IIRC). I found that simply replacing the
chip with an equivalent fails most of the time. The 180s seem to hold

that "pop" was the flyback transfor, a resistor, or a capacitor bloweing up. if your not a technician this is considered a circuit repair and ther are no serviceable parts inside this set for you to replace without the proper tools , service manuals, and schematic diagram. Sorry man your gonna need a serfvice pro to help ya with this repair. Good Luck
