I could hear a click, then nothing. Changed the fuse. Now when I plug in the electric chord I hear a beep, beep, beep in a rhythm (as if something were turning?) but when I unplug the beep slows until power is diminished(?)

Re: tv won't come on
Beeping in that model usually refers to the flyback needing to be replaced or the Horizontal output transistor. Flyback is most likely the cause as the HOTransistor will usually blow a fuse causeing the set to be dead.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

The PS50700 uses the 195 series chassis. The most common cause of the set not starting up is a shorted flyback (high voltage) transformer. Sometimes a shorted flyback will also cause the horizontal output transistor to short too. These parts need to be tested and/or replaced by a tech familiar with the RCA 195 chassis.
FL231. FUSE.... The RCA ITC222 chasis has a common problem. and it not all that difficult to repair. Does your rca projection tv have read blue and green shadows? Does it have bowing in affect on the top and bottom of picture? when you turn it on does some thin red green and blue line bow in from the top then go away. The main question to determine if you have the fl231 fuse problem is if you go into customer menu then setup do you have the "CONVERGENCE' option. If you do not. then i suspect you have this problem. In the manufactering of these sets Lead free solder is used. now there is great debate over the use of lead free. connection tend to be more brittle. cracks develop around the solder connections of the high voltage flyback transformer. this very small crack set up oscillations in the cuicit with a 400 milliamp fuse. THis fuse cant take it. When this fuse blows the processor then does not know its a projection tv with three projection tubes. it thinks its a crt tube tv. and crt tube tv dont need "convergence" so it removes the convergence from the set.
TO REPAIR... 1. Warning. this set can generate leathal dangerous voltages even unplug do not attempt if you have no experence with electronics. 2. Remove the back. there a number of torx 20 screws. 3. what you will see is a number of circit boards There will be one on the right and one on the left. the one on the right is the small signal board. the one on the left is called the power deflection board. it has a large black part with a big red or black wire coming from the top, this is the flyback.Next to the flyback on the right of it there will be three small rectangular componets tan or brown in color. these are fuses. the one in the middle is the fl231 fuse. 4. getting to this fuse can be difficult. these two cuicit boards sit on a tray that is removable. to remove this tray it is pulled out and up. BUt watch the wires.loosen the wire tyes. 5 when you get the tray up the bottom side of the board can be accessed you will now have to unsolder that fuse. one side of this fuse is under a plastic part of the tray. i have found the easest way is to cut away the plastic to get to it. if you dont want to do this you will have to remove the board. only remove half of the plastic brace 6. REPLACE FUSE RCA PART 259213 7 RESOLDER FLYBACK CONNECTIONS simply heat up and add a little solder 8 reassemble set. make sure you examine the set for loose connections. 9 and remember "BE Careful'
WARNING HIGH VOLTAGE: Do not attempt to work on your set without another person present who is trained in CPR
If the power chord is a plug in type , plug it back in.
if the power chord was ripped out , you need to repair it.
if the power chord was broken before you discovered it, you will also need to repair it.
I do mean a proper repair not just an electrical tape job.
The most common problem with these Models/ Chassis' is IHVT (intergrated high voltage transformer) going bad. They have around 99% failure rate. T14401 > part number > 239111 >IHVT.
Try to get RCA part a little more pricey but more reliable then after market ones. You can tell if it's bad by the crust on the top of IHVT.
Good Luck, big IRISH.
Good Day, Ajejo;
Sorry I'm not Circuit City, but work for them for many years down here in TX.
The chassis number is the best way to find out information about the TV. The CTC195K3 is very commonly known to have bad 'flyback'. The crusting you indicated on top of said transformer is the indication that it is defective, I've changed 80-90 of them over the years.
So, job well done, your wife must be proud of you.
Part information: Location; T14401, Part Number; 239111, Name; IHVT, Integrated High Voltage Transformer.
Caution when replacing the fly, looking at the bottom, the pins are shaped like a horse shoe. At the closed end there is an separate pin. Make sure new has the extra pin (for focus), Iv'e had many lately that does not have it.
Good Luck, big IRISH. PS; good job good eye let me know.
