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

When testing the hv flyback by turning on the tv, if tv stays on the hv splitter block is bad ,but what if tv turns off what you check next? thanks for the help.

first, I think you have this backwards----if splitter disconnected (look for physical signs or arcing or it burnt) the High voltage would come up and sizzle where it connects to the splitter.

If the set with the splitter disconnected still shuts down it is not the issue---got a D52 of some kind?

If the deflection power board was changed with a known good one . then the HV splitter block would be suspect then followed by a bad CRT next. I would try removing one CRT drive board at a time by letting it hang free wires attached then trying to power up the set if it doesnt power up then try one of the other crt drive boards after reattaching the one you previously unhooked. If the set powers up if any certain CRT board is removed you will know the problem is that CRT. If it doesnt power up then its most likely the HV splitter. You can get replacement CRTs, boards and HV splitters that have warranties from

How to remove high voltage distribution box rated at 250 volts this is problem with rca model p60923bl tv no power on press power on button tv clicks 3 times and turn off no picture.

If you are talking about the HV splitter in the front of the set----remove the front grill(screws behind set on either side) and then the inspection plate behind it----the splitter will have a red wire coming from the HV transformer and 3 more red wires going to each of the picture tubes--If the splitter is bad remove the wire from the high voltage transformer that goes into it(it should pull out and if may be hard to get it out) with it out and not touching anything (isolate it well clear of anything) the set should then come on and you should hear a hiss from the wire you removed---if the set stays on shut it off quickly and replace the block---most of them are available on the internet at a reasonable cost.
hope this was helpful.

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.

HV splitter and flyback are common failure items. Remove the HV lead from the HV splitter that comes from the flyback, Place that into a dry glass jar secured so it doesnt come out. Then try powering up the set if the set powers up without shutting down the splitter is bad.

Disconnect the lead from the flyback to the splitter. Place the flyback lead securely in a dry glass container and try to power up the set. If it doesnt shutdown the HV Block (splitter) is bad.

No Power and beeping noise in circuitry

had a 51" rca 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.
