    I have the same issue on my RCA P46924 46 inch Tv. I have had no problem with this TV. it has lasted 8 years. Last night i turned it off like i always do before i go to bed, and then dismorning I was going to watch the news before i went to work BAM! NO POWER! What should I do? I did look at the Q14401 and it read as a short. I think the high voltage block is out. Where would i find parts for such an old RCA? Please help! This Tv is my best friend (Joking). It has even servived a divorce! Help me!

    I have to repair a similar RCA Home Theater TV Model (I have solely the drawer chassis but I will receive the cabinet sooner) P46729BA who has the same trouble but prior to repair, I want to know the difference between these service manuals prior do download. I need a P46729BA Service Manual but I have found 2 similar ones as P46729BADX1 and P46729BALG1. What is the difference between them? What these suffixes DX1-LG1 mean? It seams to be the same chassis? Did I can count on these service manuals to do it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not the exact same model of TV, but I'm having the same problem. The AC bridge rectifier diodes (at least CR4002, but replaced 4001-4004 to be sure) blew after a drink falling off the top of the TV and getting into the back of it. I've replaced the diodes but it still doesn't turn on.

We have the same model TV and the same thing happened a few months ago, we could not turn it on. However, after playing with it a while, if you hold down the power button and then hit the channel up or down button repeatedly it should turn on, at least that how i have to turn mine on all the time now. Hope it helps.

Yes could be several problem, the first one in my mind is burt horzirontal transistors, Q14401 or bad hight voltage block.
Could be convergence problem that is causing the system to shout down.

Hope this helps

The tv is going into protection shutdown. It will try to power up three times, but each time it tries, the microprocessor recognizes an overvoltage, or overcurrent draw, and after three attempts it will place the unit into protection shutdown. There can be many causes of this, but the most likely one is that there is a short circuit in the high voltage circuits. You probably have a shorted flyback and associated components.

Comcast Remote Control Code

comcast sucks and its tech support are a bunch of idiots. the book that comes with the remote is wrong (and for some reason no one in tech support knows this). the remote requires 5 digit codes and all the codes in the book are 4. typing the number 1 in front of any of the codes in the book, for any device and manufacturer, should fix this problem.

RCA Scenium HD52W140 Won't power

This has happened to me twice. We had the warranty and thank God we did. The problem is in a $7 transistor and you probably need to call a repair shop. They worked on ours and it took about 20 minutes to replace the transistor. They take out the bad one and soder in the new one on the circut board inside the back of the tv. The total cost was nothing for us because of the warranty, but it came to $385 for labor and stuff. Again, this happened twice, one year to the date from one another. The repair guy finally installed a different brand of transistors and it's been fine since. He said that RCA makes some terrible transistors and he will not use them again. Try and get the repair person to use a non-rca brand transistor, because it will more than likely happen again if he don't.
