Question about RCA Projection Televisions

1 Answer

My good old reliable RCA ColorTrek (probably from the 80's) lost it's picture yesterday after a power outtage. There is just snow and static noise. When I try and change the channel to the proper one (4) for Direct TV....the ch. number comes on the screen and then changes to a different number (14 or 21) and the screen (and noise) stays the same. I thought it might just be a programming problem, but there is no 'reset' button that I can see. I don't have a remote and can't seem to program my Universal Remote (also RCA) to make it work. I've tried all the methods on line...! Thanks for any help you can give, Tish in Hermosa Beach CA

No Picture/No Sound


This is very possibly a power surge, can you tell me how many times the light blinks, you probably have a bad power board now if you had a power surge.

I have a Phillips magnavox P960349102 model#PTV835. I have power no picture or sound. How do I fix this?


Have power/deflection board rebuilt. Probably will not last long from my experience. In reality this model is too old for a good, reliable fix (like CTC167 in RCA is too old for a good fix, and Hitachi pincushion circuits).

N o picture just static noise


The symptom sounds like a dead tuner and the screen blanking may be due to missing video synchronization signals which may cause either blanking or 'blue screen' on some sets.
This could also still be because of a failing power supply although they will generally just cause no turn-on at all.
I would first substitute another TV just to be sure your signal source (cable or satellite) isn't causign the loss of signal.

probably you have glycol leaking on the anode lead, in one off the pic tube, check for wets spots, or pay attention on the chassi where the hv leads are located, be careful

I had the same problem with mine. It was overheating. I installed a small cpu cooling fan on the back of the unit. No problems since. Good luck.
