Question about RCA P61940 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

RCA P61940 No picture but sound ok.

I don't see my problem posted after paying. So I'll repost it. Have sound but no pic. Menu comes on and little channel logos appear at bottom of screen when channels are changed. 3 guns are on but not creating images. No smell of component burning. Think it may be rf converter. Can module be found and replaced or should I start troubleshooting board to component level? Thanks.

    Thx all. I figured it out. I've got a weak component. Unplugged the tv for a few hours, turned it back on and it's doing ok now. Happened a couple years back with the sound. If problem starts up again I'll take board out and replace bad part. At least I got a chance to clean the three super, super dusty lens. Bought tv back in 2000. I'm a burg and fire alarm tech. Anyone need some help gimmie a holler, I might be able to help. Haven't worked on systems since 1999, but still know about em and have tons of parts laying around. Too busy to put em on ebay. Take care all.

Try using the audio/video inputs to bypass the RF converter (tuner).

Turn tv on, sound comes on but no picture, power light blinks,

The clear bulb located back left side needed to be replaced. Too much heat causes the bulb to burn out. Simple fix. One screw to open door to bulb compartment. Two screws to remove bulb assembly. Thank goodness for extended service warranty which paid for it. This is the second one in three years. At the price of $200 for bulb and $100 for trip and labor, this is not an inexpensive fix. Anyone purchasing a projection tv should get an extended warranty.
