Rca projection screen model p52151wk chassis ptk169ptb popped shutoff

I have the above named television it has always worked great until about 2 years ago. It made a loud pop then shut off, at first it would come back on after a while but now it wont. I did pay a local repairman to come pick it up repair it and return it.... within weeks it was doing it again. when i called them they said unplug it for 30 minutes and plug it back in. THAT DID NOT HELP AT ALL. so much for having him fix any thing in the future.
also a fuse popped inside near the power supply and i had one to replace it with (it has been quite sometime but i seem to think i put a weaker fuse in it than what was there) what amp should that be to be proper?
the set was made in 1992 but i would like to save it if i can.

any help would be much appreciated.

We have a saying in the TV business, " TV's age just like Cats" so at 16 years old you could have several problems. The most common is as capacitors age they loose the ability to function properly. this causes voltages to change and stresses out components like resistor, Ic's and many other high voltage components. This will also cause cold solder joints at the solder connection that can easily destroy a set. Even if you change all the capacitor, resistor that are bad or week when the set runs again it now has different voltages and usually destroys other componet in a short time. So what happens is you keep pouring cash to fix this set that seems to fail every six or nine months. Then the other problem, most manufacture only carry componets for about 7 years after the model end production, what this means if you need a special part like the high voltage transformer or CRT these most likely will not be available.The bottom line is this.... After you spend a few hundred bucks fixing this set that in all likelihood will not last more than six moths you know what you have?.... A 16 year old set

I have 2 RCA 52" projection TV's. One has a


RCA always has the part number stamped on the board. It will be a six digit number and usually is preceeded by "P/N". I have worked on these units and would guess that many of the boards are the same. Check the part numbers and if they are the same and the physical layout of the board looks the same the boards should be interchangable. I could not determine through research if the parts are the same because the units are older. I did determine that the CRTs are identical which would mean that more than likely the control signal board for them will also work.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

RCA projection HD52W59 won't turn on 2 green flashes at power but

Most techs dont know much about the ITC222A chassis which is what your model is. I would double check the ribbon cables that connect the Main deflection board and signal board. There are two of them just be sure they are proerly seated into their sockets as Those connections can cause that type of random operation

P52151WK 52" projection TV, no video

Is the audio coming from the TV's internal speakers, or from an external sound system? In the 169 series chassis, if the power supply caps or secondary rectifier are bad, or if the high voltage splitter has shorted inside, the set will not run and there will be no picture or sound from the TV. If the picture is completely black but the TV still has audio, press the menu button and see if the menu comes up on the screen. If the menu is there, check your cables on the back of the TV. If you are using a cable or satellite box, the box could be bad or the video wire could be bad or loose. If you do not get the on-screen menu, then I would guess that the solder joint next to the flyback transformer that sends filament (heater) voltage up to the picture tubes has cracked, or the low value resistor in the heater circuit has opened up. If that is the case, have the set serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the 169 series chassis.

Power Problem

There are two different chassis used in that model. If yours has chassis # ITC222 then the part number will be 264102 if it is chassis # ATC221 then it will be part # 258762. The defelection board for the ATC221 is the cheapest. Here are two links for both to order.
