Question about RCA P52926 52" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Proscan (RCA) PS52652

This is one of those older big screen model that has it own built-in shelving unit. I have no picture or audio. The screen will flash only the channel input number (91) in green and blue colors. There is also a "red 91" that will appear in the upper right hand corner. I cannot select any other channels.

I can access the menu screen-that's also in green and blue colors. I tried the picture reset/convergence option-that does nothing but to draw a blank screen.

I'm not a TV expert and it has been over 15 years since I worked as an electronics technician, but I suspect there may be power supply-convergence issues.

I have an rca big screen tv that keeps cutting off

I have no idea of the model but chances are the back lamp is out and time to get a replacement or the power supply the powers it.
If it is a LCD unit then you may just need a lamp. If it is a CRT then you may have other power supply issues.

I have an older model rca rear projection tv. The problem with the tv is that the picture bends into curve after about 5 minutes after it has been turned on. Please help.

Check the convergence IC's for cold solders, check for leaking capacitors in the area. Check the voltage regulator with a Variac.

Usually these sets just need the 2 big convergence IC's replaced with new ones. Clean all 3 picture tube lenses, mirror and screen. Get the original RCA remote that came with the set and MANUALLY align the convergence.

Rarely the bow on the bottom of the screen is not repairable.

We have a big screen rca tv , one of the older models, it has worked fine up until now. The picture is stretched out and we can't even see what channel we want to watch on the guide it need to come in on...

this problem is connected with your horizontal control. if you can bring it to your tv repairman and see if the horizontal board can be repaired or replaced this is what i have found on many older models due to heat build up in the case.

We have lost the power cord to plug into our Proscan TV model: PS52652 chassis: PTK169PDBS. where can we find a cord to purchase?

Check with techs that repair these sets or any tech. If they cant find the right power cord they can allways take the power cord from another name brand set and wire it in.
