Question about RCA P46921 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Will not turn on

I recently bought this set from a friend for $75. It was made 4/2000 When you hit the power button it makes the noise if it was goin to come on, but nothing happens. Every time you hit the power button it makes this noise 4 times in a row then quits. Any Ideas on what the problem is?

Start up circuitry needs trouble shooting probably one of the regulators or flyback.

    theres really no way to determine what it would cost to get it fixed at a shop. most will probably want to switch out the circuit board if ones available so i would quess it would be somewhere around 300 for the board and 100 labor.

Power light is flashing 3 times consecutively. When hitting the power button the fan comes on then shuts back down..then starts flashing the red light again..I've recently bought a new lamp and installed...


Put lamp cover back in its place as 3 times blinking light shows lamp cover has not been fixed.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed to replace lamp in tv, make sure it is fixed securely in its position.

The picture wont come on


First make sure to hit the menu button on the TV's remote and if nothing is there then friend while the set is on turn a bright flashlight on and shine at angle into the set push the TV menu button if you can see a image then your back light is not working.
You can also check the transformers they are close to were the wires plug into the panel, make sure all transformers read the same amount of resistance if not you have found a bad one. Now you will have to check to see if the power supply is sending 24v to the backlight, if not the power supply is bad. Cost backlights around 150.00 and power supplies around 100.00. Well this should help you friend.

Humming sound


the old color wheel on models pre 06 have bearings. The new replacement dosn't. The noise you here is the bad bearing. Mine got so loud I couldn't take it anymore. Just replace and noise is gone! I did mine myself. Not that hard.

Won't turn on...


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.
