Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv went off and won't come back on.

I too was watching a movie on my 1994 52" RCA TV tonight and suddenly it went off and wouldn't come back on. I took the back off to look inside, and when I push the power button, it sparks and sounds like a bug hitting a bug zapper! Any ideas on what the problem could be and if this would be costly to repair?

The arcing sound is some kind of high voltage leak, which will shut down the tv. pull the speaker grill off and the access board, look at the 3 picture tubes, turn the set on you will see where the leak is, it's usually the high voltage splitter, which has a high voltage wire going into it and 3 high voltage wires coming out going to the picture tubes, if it arcs from the splitter you need to change it, if it arcs from one of the picture tube wires you need to pull the tube out and fix the high voltage leak, and possibly a cooling fluid leak caused it, not an easy reapir, you probably need a repairman.

Panasonic rear projection TV 47 in PT 47WX49


Camaroguy: This exact problem happened to us about 8 months ago. A board had to be replaced at a cost of $500. Yesterday, the convergence has gone on the set. You get a blue and yellow shadow on the picture. From what I have been reading, this has happened on a few TVs and it will cost another $500 or so. We refuse to pour more money down the drain so we just went out and bought a new plasma (RCA) for half what it cost us for the Panasonic 4 years ago. We have never had a problem with RCA in the past (two tvs for 20 years a piece).
