Check for solder cracks around the flyback and around the Horizontal output Transistor, as that chassis is famous for bad solder joints.

Rca rear proj. 1993 model p46151wk tv just went dead no picture no sound no light on power button I only found 1 fuse it is good

Take a look at CR4118, and the capacitors around the power supply regulator chip. You likely have capacitors that are dried out. They can take out the chip, and Q4101, the 'chopper'.
The web site: has a program for the CTC169 series of RCA projo's that is very useful in finding the fault that causes the condition you describe. Just enter ctc169 into the search box. Or go to this URL:

Set turned off by itself, power light flashes, and then I smelled something electrical. It will not turn on with remote or manually.

HI, thank you for visit fixya.
Two possibles solutions:

1.--Horizontal capacitor is burn or blown.
Need be replace, located beside horizontal transistor ( .0082uf 2kv ).
Clean the aarea on the chassis.
2.-- Transformer fly back is burn, need be replace.
If you will work on this tv or any special technician will work on this tv, request for replace capacitor on power supply. Common problem too.
Any question. let me know ,please.
Thank you.

I just acquired an RCA P46738AT television set made in 1994- 1995. The TV makes a quiet charging noise when it is plugged in but no light on the power button and no power. Not sure what to do about this...

This is a common problem and chassis (CTC169) and it sounds like the HV block is bad. Part# 205064. Caution is required when replacing since High Voltage is present.

RCA P52960YX1 power supply dead - can I replace this myself?

Ok, Look, you can do this. Just take care when desolder any electronic part. ( position). mostly in capacitor ( - + location). You can buy a : power supply kit for ctc169 chassis. But maybe don't need replace all parts, just replace 2 small electrolytic capacitor 2.2uf 100v and 39uf 100v and ready...I hope this will help you. Thank you !!

RCA pix tearing horizontal lines

Get an ESR meter and check all the electrolytic capacitors in the set! I am sure you will find many decoupler and coupling capacitors that are on the edge or too high in ESR.
