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.

Clock resetting and power button malfunctioning on my Gateway NV53A laptop.


Replace the CMOS battery. In the Control Panel, Power Options, set to High Performance, open Advanced power settings, set Sleep and Hibernate to Never, Adjust other settings to your preference. Set Screen Saver Time. Always turn off the computer and unplug when not in use, it will prolong life and a reboot every day will reset the computer. I would say you have a issue with the outlet connections/plug. If you have a multimeter you can verify.

My hp ze4300 will not turn on


Has there been a power surge meanwhile? If so, try unplugging the power cord, press the power button, reconnect power and try booting. Sometimes works.

Power Issue


sounds suspiciosly like your chord fitting is damaged(loose wires at connection)and shorting.if possible try a friends power supply with same connecter type before renewing cos could be faulty(loose)connection at pc(inside)constant pushing and pulling of connections often causes 1. loose split or disconnected wires at male connection or 2.loose pins on motherboard female connection or broken housing (not difficult to repair)more difficult to find out how to get to internal connection.

"Install Yellow" Error - Machine is frozen.


Check all other carts. It might be that one (or more) carts are empty, too. Thats why the machine refuses to work properly.

Unplug from power, wait  two minutes and replug again.

If it doesnt come up correctly the maincircuit baord might be defective due to a defective electrical part.

Do leave the machine always on power connection. You can turn it off by pressing the stand-by-fax button, but you have to keep the machine with power supplied. Set date and time. The machine runs some automatic cleaning cyles every 20 days to keep the nozzles alive and that prevents the permanent ph from drying out!

I can't turn the camera on anymore


I dont have a definite solution, but I would;

- clean the power contacts on the battery and the camera with a moist Q-tip

- leave the battery out for a day or so, maybe more if you have time. Make sure the battery is charged again (maybe just put it on for an hour or so) and re-try.
