I would take it to a repair shop, they charge around $50 to look it over, and then tell you want is wrong with it and they will give you the cost to fix it. This is what I do when TV's go out. It will save you time and money in the long run.

My rca p52926 picture cuts in and out

If model number is correct (on rear of set in small letters it should be a PTK 195 chassis) you have a high voltage lead somewhere that is arcing.

This set did have issues with the High Voltage transformer failing and also that High Voltage (well over 10,000 volts) gets distributed to each of the 3 picture tubes this model uses.

Sometimes the lead where it connects to one of the tubes begins to arc---it is coated with white silcone to prevent this.

If arcing around the entry point to any of the tubes sooner or later it will take the set down--destroy parts that are currently ok.

Usually we locate this by turning set on with back off and looking and listening when set is turned on---If a frying or pop is heard up above the main boards--one of the entry points (called the 2nd Anode) is arcing.

I have seen them arc hard enough and long enough to actually crack and break the glass wall of the picture tube.

My TV looks like it's in 3D. Turned it on one morning and it looked like that, was fine the night before.

This is a older model and rarely has convergence (3 d) problems.

There is one simple problem that does occur----look carefully at the back of the set where the model number is---is this a PTK195 chassis?

If it is a 195 chassis (not the model number) it has a small removable power board for the convergence----the board does not need to be replaced--if this is your set (195) there are 2 diodes that fail and are cheap to replace.

If I can help let me know with a comment here (the site will email me) and I will tell you exactly what to do.

look carefully on back of set where model number is, is there a chassis number like PTK195?

If there is I can tell you what part is bad.

The picture looks like if it was 3-D, Its not very focus? it is actually for a P61929 Model RCA projection TV screen

On this model you must check the micro fuses on the deflection board for open condition, also make sure you check the solder connection on and around the flyback transformer. The unit is out of convergence and usually blows two mini fuses near the end of the board nearest you look at the back.

You have a problem with convergence and all you may need to do is replace a fuse. Look up convergence for your tv model and hopefully you will get an answer as to where the fuse is located and how to replace it. Very common for RCA tv's

Rca tv won't power on

it may need a Flyback Transformer or a burnt capasitor and resistors. there are many posts with this same problem. Some a little different. Check the fuse just inside where the power supply cord goes in . if the fuse is blown you will have to find the reason it burned . But maybe you will be lucky and replace the fuse. And it will turn on. but I think that only a TV technician can fix the problem.I have a background on TV repair and I think it's the Flyback transformer. sometimes you canresolder them and they stay.

Turns on then off

That model has a history of bad flybacks and HV splitters. Can you look on the rear tag and let me know which chassis version you have either a CTC or PTK number?

You are likely to have a high voltage transformer bad which is common problem for ctc 195 RCA If you look into the back of the tv it is the white square looking thing about 3 inches across by 3 inches with the large red wire coming from it and going back into the set. Must have original RCA part and must be unsoldered and solder in new one. Not to be done by the untrained. Average cost to come out and repair is $250 to $300. depending on the repairman (Note: the chassis is in a complete wooded chipcore box that will come out with quarter inch nutdriver and unplug two plugs at the top of the box The box or chassis can be taken to the repair shop leaving the screen at your home saving a service call. Hope this helps
