Question about RCA P52960 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No Power This set has been working fine for a long time. Then one day I tried to turn it on, and nothing happened, either with the power on button, or the remote. No indicator lights lit up. It acts completely dead. I am an electrical engineer, and have repaired many TV sets. The incoming fuse is not blown. There is 170 VDC on the main power supply capacitor, and the board has DC voltages downstream from the transformer. There is 5 VDC at the power on switch. I checked the horizontal output transistor, the driver transistor, and the flyback. All check OK. I did notice that some parts of the board had no voltages, but I think those voltages appear after the set powers up. We did have a bad thunderstorm around this same time. Can you give me any ideas?

What is the cassis number to your set. RCA has to be diagnosed by the chassis as they have used different chassis depending on manufacturer. Should be a PTK number located on the back of your set.

Mitsubishi WD-52525 was working fine and now it will not turn on


This is just a shot - but it worked with my Sony (same problem).
Pressed remote power on button AND held Power button on TV on at the same time.

Set clicked 4 or 5 times and then came on....

Other, most have a (VERY small) reset switch on the rear - near where the power cord enters the TV... Use a flashlight and a mirror to locate it on your set....

Make sure you push the TV button on the top of the remote before you push the power on button.

TV will turn on, but not respond


Good Day, mistymiles;

Try this before calling a factory authorized service center:

Press " menu 2 > 4 > 7 > 0 > enter", on remote. After settings have been initialized > press the system reset button on the front, once the LED stops blinking > reprogram settings and tuner channels (if not using box). IF NOT fixed call for service (get estimate before repair) and suspect repair of DM PCB (printed circuit board).

Good Luck, big IRISH.

It's possible that the convergence IC's may be bad in this set along with a few resistors. A TV repair shop should be able to fix the set for you.
