When testing the hv flyback by turning on the tv, if tv stays on the hv splitter block is bad ,but what if tv turns off what you check next? thanks for the help.


first, I think you have this backwards----if splitter disconnected (look for physical signs or arcing or it burnt) the High voltage would come up and sizzle where it connects to the splitter.

If the set with the splitter disconnected still shuts down it is not the issue---got a D52 of some kind?

Our first tv has a booster amplifier on the coaxial cable, i have purchase a new tv and need to know what product i need to us to attached the new tv's coaxial cable too. We have used a splitter box, but...


To have good picture quality you need zero DB (decibels) for one TV without a splitter. You can use and inline amplifier for each individual TV hooked up to the cable input with a output leg connected to each TV. If your house in wired in parallel (one main input hooked up to a splitter with all of the other TV's run off of the splitter) you can use a whole house amplifier hooked up inline between the input line and the splitter. If you house is wired in series (the input goes to the first outlet, then splitter to second outlet and so forth) each splitter knocks your signal levels down 50% each splitter. Amplifier placement depends on how the home is wired and how many TV's are in the home. Splitters can be either balanced (50/50 split) or imbalanced (75/25) etc. On a two way splitter 75% of the signal goes out one leg, while 25% goes out the other (usually for FM transmissions). If you have a three way splitter the signal is divided by the number of output legs. Splitters do go bad as well (sometimes only one leg). You can also buy an amp that is multi- port (which splits the signal and amplifies in one unit/ one input and 2,3,4 outputs). Amplifiers are electric and there is no way that the splitter can interrupt the power that would take all the signal away. If you meant that it drops the signal level so the picture is unacceptable, that's different. If you have another splitter in the house try using that one, the other might be bad. All in all you can purchase most anything you need at a Radio Shack and are very inexpensive. Amps can be purchased in different gains (boost). +10db, etc. I cannot believe that your cable company is giving you such minimal signal that 1. you need an amp?, and 2. that one splitter drops your picture to nothing? Your line extenders (amps for the lines that feed your neighborhood) might have problems or need adjustment by the lazy, cheap, cable co. also. I had problems with my cable company (when I had one) my modem would not stay online. 4 months later, they diagnosed the problem and my drop (RG56 cable line that feeds my home from their tap in the cable box outside) was bad. My friend could stay online and 2 months later comcast adjusted their amps (line extenders) in the neighborhood and then he was fine. I know this is a lot to digest, but I'm just trying to draw a clear picture so you can understand it all. I hope this helps and good luck!

How to remove high voltage distribution box rated at 250 volts this is problem with rca model p60923bl tv no power on press power on button tv clicks 3 times and turn off no picture.


If you are talking about the HV splitter in the front of the set----remove the front grill(screws behind set on either side) and then the inspection plate behind it----the splitter will have a red wire coming from the HV transformer and 3 more red wires going to each of the picture tubes--If the splitter is bad remove the wire from the high voltage transformer that goes into it(it should pull out and if may be hard to get it out) with it out and not touching anything (isolate it well clear of anything) the set should then come on and you should hear a hiss from the wire you removed---if the set stays on shut it off quickly and replace the block---most of them are available on the internet at a reasonable cost.
hope this was helpful.

CRT Question


Maybe, be safe. Run a wire with an alligator clip from the screwdriver shaft to the chassis ground while popping the anode off.

RCA projection P46732BA no power and arcing sound


The High Voltage Splitter is the cause of this and replacing it should fix the problem. Their should not be a shock hazard once power is diconnected. But just incase, ground each of the anode leads from the crts to ground. That should take care of any HV charge from the CRTS. Do make a note of which wire went went where, that is important. When you get the new HV Splitter, you will need to transfer the small board that is mounted on the old Splitter. Again, be aware of where the wires hook up to it and you will be fine.
Hope this helps,

HV splitter and flyback are common failure items. Remove the HV lead from the HV splitter that comes from the flyback, Place that into a dry glass jar secured so it doesnt come out. Then try powering up the set if the set powers up without shutting down the splitter is bad.

Disconnect the lead from the flyback to the splitter. Place the flyback lead securely in a dry glass container and try to power up the set. If it doesnt shutdown the HV Block (splitter) is bad.

ProScan wont turn on


PS52690 52" projection TV (CTC188 series) that won't power up. From what I have read here and other places, the most common cause of this is the HV splitter. Actually, when the unit was 3 years old, the HV splitter went out and had to be replaced but it was under warranty at the time. I have found that the part I need is 205064 and runs around $40-$70
A post in another thread said that you could test to see if the HV splitter is really the problem by disconnecting the HV anode (big red wire) from the flyback (not the splitter since that will arc), plug the TV in, power it up, and if the power stays on and you hear sound, replace the HV splitter to fix the problem.
