Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television
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.
