It sounds like it may be the IHVT, flyback or high voltage transformer. Go to your local RCA service center and purchase it, but if you are not skilled in soldering , I would recommend that you seek a factory authorized service center to properly repair your unit, not only for reliability but first your safety.

I get no picture from my rca 52 inch tv


Have you taken the back off to see what is visible to you ? it could be a high voltage transformer or bad connections on the bottom of the SMPS deflection board being the board on the left looking in to the back of set. or a you should be able to see something burnt or a smell of the area some times helps to locate what you don't notice .
but most likely the problem in on that circuit board .

Thats usually the gray box capacitor CL031 which is about 2 inches in front of the flyback or the flyback itself. Thats the only two items that will cause that on that chassis.

My tv will not come on and sparks when i plug it in


If it sparks when plugged in that means the main fuse in the tv is not blown. If there was sorting wrong with the tv and you saw sparks the fuse should blow. If the fuse blew you will not see sparks anymore and the set will not come on. But if the fuse did not blow one of the following can be the cause.

1. A short in the line cord, check you plug and wire to make sure there are no breaks in the wire.
2. Sparking can be from a bad outlet, a plug that is not making good connection can cause sparking, try plugging in to another outlet if it still sparks check the prongs and make sure they are not blackened.

Be careful , can start a fire, keep unplugged,. you may have to get a repair man to look at it. Sounds like a short to me.

Rca p52770eb wont come on sparks in the back about 2 inches from the power cord inside the tv


On some of the RCA televisions, the Hi Volt transformer will go bad and make a sizzling or popping sound. Most often, it will smell burnt when this happens.

Sparks and burning plastic


Leave the back off and try to power the set on...be ready to pull the plug. Whatever is sparking/smoking is your bad part. On this TV I would suspect the flyback transformer or grey rectangular polyester capacitor mounted in front of a heatsink on the left.

Louding sparking in the back panel.


more likely its the flyback arcing which is a common problem with the ITC222 chassis which is what your model is. You can get replacement 259296 flybacks at the following link with free detailed instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself.
