Question about RCA P60920BL 60" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV fried from power surge

My 60 inch projection tv was on, when a power surge hit, now the tv will no longer power.

Tried several different outlets.

If it is something that requires resoldering, I could probably do it if I knew what was supposed to be started where.

Any suggestions on what I should do?

    The model number is actually P60828BL.

    The chassis is PTK195DC

    Thank you very much for your response.

TV will not turn on.


Sounds like there is a short in the tv somewhere, the clicking is probably a breaker/fuse inside the tv cutting power to prevent damage to the components. Have you tried a different outlet as they can sometimes cause this to occur by surging power to the unit.

TV Doesn't Turn On
  • Your RCA rear projection TV may not turn on from time to time for several reasons. First, check that the power cord is plugged into a working power outlet. Check that the outlet is receiving electricity by plugging a different device into the outlet. If the other device doesn't work, you may need to replace a fuse or reset a circuit breaker in your home.

    If you tried using the remote control to turn on the TV, press the "Power" button on the front of the TV. You may have a problem with the remote control if the TV turns on.

    If you tried using the front control panels and haven't tried the remote, press the "Power" button on the remote control. The television controls are blocked if the TV turns on with the remote. To unlock the controls, open the "Parental Control" menu and remove the check mark next to "Front Panel Block."

    Finally, your TV may be performing a diagnostic check. These checks are used to find any errors in your TV. Wait a few minutes before trying to turn on the TV again.

TV Turns Off By Itself
  • You may find that your RCA TV turns off by itself on occasion. This is often because the "Sleep Timer" feature was enabled. This feature allows you to place a timer on the television that will turn it off after a specific amount of time has passed. The feature allows you to save on your energy bill and extend the life of your television.

    If the "Sleep Timer" wasn't set, the television may have detected a power surge in your home and shut off automatically to protect the components of the television. Wait at least 30 seconds before turning the TV on again.

    Finally, if you suspect the television is turning off for a reason other than a power surge, unplug the television and let it sit for at least 10 minutes. This will clear any errors in the television. After 10 minutes, plug the television back into the outlet and resume normal use.

  • Blank Screen
  • A blank screen on an RCA rear projection television is usually caused by a loose connection or an incorrect setting. Check that the coaxial connection on the back of the television is secure or, if you're using an external device such as a DVD player, the video cables are secure. Press the "Ant/Cable" button to switch between tuners if you are watching television, or the "Input" button to switch between input channels if you're watching something from an external device.

The kids left the tv on all night and turned off in the morning. Next time we tried to use it, we had no picture (blank screen) and no sound, but the power light does come on. Where can I start looking for...


I don't know of a parts outlet but searching will find this part. I am betting that you blew out the video card itself. This usually happens with a lightning strike or a power surge and a power surge strip you buy from a home center is not what it advertises and will not work. It will be obvious if you pull the back off of the TV and look at the input cards, one of them should be fried. If you find the fried one you can pull it, take off the part number and start looking for a replacement. These cards can be fixed but it will take someone that knows what they are doing and a ton of patients.

TV Wont turn on after lighting storm. I have tried to; unplug and plug back in. Unplug it for 24 hrs. Try different outlets. Look at the build, looks fine.


The TV circuitry is designed to protect from power surges. The fuse on the power supply may be blown, or the power supply itself could have taken a hit. I would try to check the fuse first and then if it turns back on... it did it's job!

Good luck! and let me know what happens!

Turn on tv and standby light flashes 6 times


The self-diagnostic function of the projection TV will cause the STANDBY light to blink or flash when the television detects an issue.

Follow the steps below to perform a power reset:
  1. Turn off the television.
  2. Unplug the TV power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the TV remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the TV is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the TV.
  5. Turn on the television. NOTE: If the TV does not turn on immediately, the fan may need to finish its cycle. This is part of the cooling process for some projection TVs and is normal operation. After the fan turns off, attempt to turn the TV on again.

If the issue is still unresolved after following all of the troubleshooting steps, service may be required . Please note the number of times the STANDBY light flashes and relay that information to the service center.

Ihave a sony KP53S75 TV there was apower surge and now there is no picture. The red light blinks 4 times can anyone tell me about this?


Hi, if this TV was hit by the surge and it was protected by a surge protector, please follow this reset procedure.

The STANDBY light will flash if an issue is detected within the television. This can sometimes be resolved by simply following the steps below to reset the television.
  1. Turn off the television. IMPORTANT: For a projection television that uses an internal lamp, wait 5 minutes after turning off the television to allow the lamp to cool before continuing with the following steps.
  2. Unplug the television power cord from the electrical outlet.
  3. Let the television remain without power for 60 seconds.
  4. Plug the power cord back into the electrical outlet. NOTE: If the television is plugged into a power strip or surge protector, remove it from the power strip or surge protector and plug it directly into the wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, the problem is with the power strip or surge protector and not the television.
  5. Turn on the television.

If the problem is still there and the light is still blinking 4 times, this means that the surge has destroyed the Vertical deflection component. in this case, it will have to be replaced.

please rate and have a great day.

Power Surge at Home


This time it came in on the cable, the clue was the cable box also blew. So if you had a cable surge supression device...for HDTV, I think you would have survived the second surge.

I do have the technology. It is a F-connector type and will handle HDTV signal.

Philips 60pp9202 will not power on


You should check the high voltage regulator inside the TV. Very common problem for this series. Be careful when removing them, it contains high voltage static charge in those capacitors.
