Question about RCA P50830BL 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

RCA 50" - Convergence problem and now "Popping" + no picture

We have a 11 yr old RC P50830 that worked fine until a couple of years ago when the convergence went on it. Had it repaired but then went again a couple of weeks ago. Tried to turn it on the other day and there was no picture but there was no a high pitch "popping" like a machine gun coming from the bottom right area of the box. Any idea what's wrong and how expensive it might be to repair? Maybe it's not even worth repairing with the cost of tv's these days? Any advice would be most helpful! Thanks!!

The high pitch popping that you are hearing is arcing in the high voltage circuit. I would not suggest a repair on a set that is this old. Convergence repair plus a high voltage problem could run around $500-$600. But it is your call on the repair, I can only advise.

I hope this helps you.

50 inch Sanyo Vizon Plasma TV. Has sound but no picture for last few days. 2 years old


This set has LG insides, it will have failed on either the Y-Sustain PCB or the Z-Sustain PCB.

Quite common.

Repair estimates should be $250 - £350 depending on which has failed.

Stick it on eBay, it will fetch good money faulty.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok


Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.
