this indications that you have a problem with convergence. first try to go into customer menu...setup....convergence. and see if the convergence will adjust.. if it wont then you have a problem with the convergence cuircit boards.

ok....i know what is wrong with your set.. it is a small (very small micro fuse. rca has issued bulliten to service centers on the problem.. getting the fuse and describing where it is then soldering might be the difficult problem here.. but let me give it a try. it is located on the main signal board in a shelded covered board called the main signal board. The fuse, 1C33,is located approximately 2 inches behing the tuner The surface mounted part has various markings on
the original part from “105” to “F”
and is located below the board marking “7C32'
Replacement fuse #275819 can be placed directly over the top and soldered to the ends of the existing fuse
to lessen the chances of damaging the board traces.
all that being said.. this is some trick soldering.. and unless your a tech i would not recomend such a repair.. i cant speak for all shops but such a repair is not that difficult for most techs and cost about 125 to 200. So good luck and let me know how it go's or if i can give any more detailed info

Hello bassin365,
The loud pop you heard was a filter capacitor. The problem now is the power supply is shot, or should I say the capacitor that is connected to that voltage output is blown. You will have to replace it with a new one. I would suggest just for your curiosity, unplug the TV, take the lower panel off (you will need a star head driver to do this) and look at the power supply board (the board on you left side) look towards the middle of the board and you will see a heat sink in the middle of that heat sink you should see a capacitor (or the remains of one). its value is 2200uf 16V (I believe that this is the one that has gone bad), you should also look for others that may have blown also. I would also suggest that you have a qualified TV repair person come to your place and work on this for you, due to the nature of this section of your TV.
If you choose to do this yourself you will find this useful.  Get a schematic to find the values the Chassis number I believe is ITC222. Here is a link to the schematic:

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Watching TV and all of a sudden a loud pop came from the back of the set. Doesn't turn back on after unplugging.


Hello
Check its power supply regulator board. The pop sound you heard may be due to an explosion to any electrolytic capcitors on it. If the line voltage exceeds, this fault will happen. just repalce the damaged component. It is best to replace this board as card basis.

Replace the flyback. You need the 259296 flyback replacement kit which has the flyback related capacitors and the CD with detailed instructions. The kit is available at www.tvrepairworld.com

Projection tv not working


I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.
