I suspect High voltage splitter is bad, can you confirm chassis number?

It is on label on back with model number, something like CTC or PTK 169 OR 171.

IF ONE of these chassis or similar I can tell you how to prove block is bad and where to find and replace--most of these sets also have year they were made on the back.

I am here to help you for free.

    the chassis number is ITC222, also the picture will come on then the LED will flash 3 to 5 times then goes out.( this happens within seconds of turning TV on ) when this happens there is no High Voltage or no picture.

    This set also uses a high voltage splitter. You will have to remove entire front grill below the screen and remove inspection plate behind it. Splitter is tan colored and has 4 rather large wires going into it on the top. If you are lucky you will hear or see a spark near it when you try to turn the set on.

    The only way to be sure if the splitter is bad or not is locate the single red wire that goes from it to the rear of the set (it goes to HV transformer). Wire is pressed and and will pull out (not easy).

    If out, place the wire (end) in a glass bottle well away from any metal to isolate it (I use a soda container)

    If set comes on and power light does not go out (you will hear the HV sizzle in the bottle) the splitter is your problem. If not the problem is back at the deflection board which produces this voltage.

    Most techs (myself included) do not like working on these sets as they are not easy to take apart and there are some parts not readily available.

    Trouble is either the splitter or in front of it.

The blinking of death.


set is trying to come on but not making it.

Most common issues with this model are bad connections around the high voltage transformer or on that same board.

A few will also have the High Voltage splitter at the very front of the set behind the front grill fail---a faint arc when you try to turn on.

Unplug High voltage lead from HV splitter. This is a red wire going from HV transformer to similar (white plastic) device located up front, between picture tubes. Disconnect the one which is coming in, by strong energetic pull down with pliers. Leave those which go to picture tubs in. Make sure that disconnected wire is far from other components or metal parts (high voltage - SEVERAL INCHES SPARK CAN OCCUR) Turn the unit on - if different than 3 blinks - the splitter is your problem.

Model 52" hd RCA tv Will not go on.hit power button green light keeps flashing.will not stop


These units are famous for bad capacitors in the power supply. When the capacitors go it causes voltages to fluctuate out of range. You have to remove the deflection PCB to repair this. Also look for loose connections at the high voltage transformer. This can be a dangerous circuit to work on. Have a repair shop check it out for you. Thanks

Liz, yes it is a power supply problem, better question is; low voltage or high voltage power supply ? count the blink code, it should repeat the code, once you have the code call your local tv shops and give them the model number of your tv and the blink amount and they`ll tell you price to fix, gl, video-tek
