Re: RCA 52in HDTV will not stay on

I would turn the circuit board over and check for clod solder joints and cracked solder, you will have to look close, my other sugestion would be to get a can of freeze and spay the different IC's and see if it stays on longer.

There is a sub-board in this set that powers the convergence circuit. Often a big Ic shorts, two diodes and finally the main fuse. not something you can fix yourself.

Tv goes black then turns off several times

Hello Kellybmann,


I posted this a while ago, but it applies here, This is a common problem with the ITC222 chassis, I would check CP120, CP140, CP150 to see if they are bad I suspect CP150 is the one that is bad. Its value is 2200uf 16VDC. It is located on the same board as the IHVT and is in between the Heat sink in the middle of the board.
I have the schematics if you need them

I hope this helps,
