Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have a shorting sound than no picture.

I have inspected all the boards and there are no signs of arcing on the tops or bottoms of any of the boards. i checked all the connectors for tightness. i removed the box from the set. when i turn the tv on it may work for 2 minutes or sometimes longer but never more than 5 minutes or so. I have noticed that if i tap on the plastic holder on the left it shorts out quickly. i do have sound at all times. Thank you in advance. Randy

Most of the time when I have seen this it was either caused by a high voltage component leg arcing where the solder joint has gone cold, or the high voltage transformer is arcing. Most all the parts for this set are no longer available including the high voltage transformer and the board it is on. If the set is working, I would see if the power/ high-voltage board has a bad solder connection that is arcing. If it goes too far, the board will be burnt beyond repair. When you take the back off the set, it will be the board on the left. It is important to remove all the screws holding the board in place and flexing the lock tabs. It is a little tricky to get out. Once it is out, inspect the bottom of the board for any arcs marks. If you see one, make sure you remove all the carbon trail and re solder the component leg. Reinstall and before powering it up be sure all the plug connectors are in their proper place.
I hope this helps,

My TV was snapping or arcing then no picture at

Sorry to hear this. What has happened is that CRT coolant has leaked from one or more CRT's down onto the Main bd and or the Power Supply bds and shorted them. You must replaced ALL three CRT's and the shorted Main bd and or the Power Supply boards. Then a Full Convergence Alignment must be done by a very good and experienced tech. Not cheap.

I do recommend checking the power coming out of the power supply to make sure it is not to high. It is common for these units to have faulty internal capacitors in the power supply. It may be shorting out other components. You can buy a capacitor tester or use an ohmmeter.

Bad flyback transformer. It has a short in the winding making the Horizontal output transistor heat up so when its too hot the set goes into protection.

I have had a shorted picture tube do that on a Toshiba before. It could also be a Flyback transformer arcing.
You should call a good TV Tech for an estimate.

The one that is arcing may be bad...slowly take the board off the bottom of that tube...then power on...If the other tubes light up again you found the problem.

First of all you need to find out which CRT leaked and replace it before any other repairs are done. The clear liquid is conductive and has done damage to the CRT board or boards.
