Re: 52 inch RCA big screen

Check all connections and different sources(dvd, vcr, antenna) to make sure that it is the tv. otherwise i would say call a technician because you could be in for some extensive troubleshooting

Your TV is overheating.. easiest remedy is to point a fan at the back of the TV or... clean the inside of the TV, Im sure its full of dust and stuff... this prevents air circulation inside the TV thus creating more heat...

A 1995 60 inch rca good picture and sound. Then it started a cracking noise and a hissing sound, then the picture went blurry. then it was nice picture and sound, then it died. took the back off and turned out the lights. Plugged the tv in and out from the wall socket and there was a sparking noise and a small arc when i plugged it in and out a few times ,at the part that the power plug plugs into.The white part that is beside the white power plug part has thick red wire coming out of it and goes into another plug that has more red wires in it. but the big white part beside the power plug part looks burnt and has black powder on it. that part is probably the problem but maybe not, what it the name of that part and how much would it cost and is it plugged in or soldered.

TV turns OFF and ON

No it is not. There is no fransfer of memory for the power module, but there is for the control module (main pcb). RCA also has a problem with 2 connectors that go bad. One on the power pcb and the other on the convergence output pcb. They are white in color. The good ones are black in color. Look for the 2 ribbon cables that connect from the main pcb to the power pcb and see what color the connectors are.

Rca ctc195 big screen tv trouble

You are likely to have a high voltage transformer bad which is common problem for ctc 195 RCA If you look into the back of the tv it is the white square looking thing about 3 inches across by 3 inches with the large red wire coming from it and going back into the set. Must have original RCA part and must be unsoldered and solder in new one. Not to be done by the untrained. Average cost to come out and repair is $250 to $300. depending on the repairman (Note: the chassis is in a complete wooded chipcore box that will come out with quarter inch nutdriver and unplug two plugs at the top of the box The box or chassis can be taken to the repair shop leaving the screen at your home saving a service call. Hope this helps

RCA 52" Big Screen TV model;P52920BL Chassis;PTK195KB PICTURE BOWED AFTER FUSE BLOWN.

You have bad convergence IC's.. If your not experienced in troubleshooting electronics or soldering, you should have a trained tech take a gander at the set. Its not worth risking life and limb to save a few bucks, Good Luck
