You will need to get the schematics to the tube that you have a socket for and then identify which are the heather, cathode and etc and then you can use micro clips that you can color code, and then just do the pin outs for the various tubes your testing. I used that same proceedure with my B&K tube rejuvinator and it worked like a charm i bought the micro test leads from radio shack and just cut the old type socket of which I knew the pin outs on and then its easy to pin out the newer tubes

The green crt on my rca tv has light but no picture inside. i changed fluid. still same. the red and blue have crystal clear pictures. also makes a real fast clicking noise and takes five miutes to come...


The problem is the driver for the green tube. Without test equipment this could be hard to track down. Also the fluid is just to keep those high intensity tubes from overheating.

Sound, but no picture


If before it was going rather bright red or a version of that--it is related to the circuit for the red picture tube this set uses---the tube itself or the circuit board that plugs onto the end of that tube.

If bright red, green or blue screen set will detect too much current being drawn and blank or turn tubes off; not likely a do it yourself repair and this set is prone to this and many other problems---Just Google the model number with "problems" and see what I mean.

Black spot in the middle of the screen looks like it has a burned spot


Yes if it uses 3 picture tubes one is burnt dead center--cover the lens one at a time to see which is causing this--permanent damage caused by a arc.

If a newer set you have a display unit with a dead pixel.

What causes the yellowish hue in the centre of the screen


There are several different types of projection sets: some use 3 picture tubes, red,green,blue--if this kind of set is what you have the coolant used in the blue tube is bad-----this type of problem leaves red and green which = yellow.

Most common in Samsung, Philips, Magnavox type sets.


If it is a newer set without picture tubes (a dlp style set) yellow in the middle of the screen would denote a damaged optical light engine.

Let me know brand, model number, date made----all are on back of set.

RCA hdtv sound but no picture


sounds more like a vertical problem since the audio still works. If it were multiple green lines then I would say green tube but the tube will usually shut a set down and it will be dead no audio. Try replacing the audio output IC

Try removing the Green CRt PC voard that is on the bottom of the green Picture tube which is the center one. Then replace the fuse and see if your set powers up if it does you need a new gree tube. Just be sure the crt board doesnt touch anything while you try it. then let me know what happened, if you need a tube they arent available new any longer but I have a source for good used picture tubes,

replacement of a picture tube in a itc222 chasis is one of my least favorote things to do here at the shop. average cost for a tube is around 250... replaceing the tube takes some time and the set has to be completely disasmbled. then reassemble and adjusted. i believe union electronics offer these tubes. you have to get the tube type of the tube itself there are several tube +lens combinations that have to be considered. willie at fordtv.com

No light in middle rear projector of RCA p52936.


The P52926 uses the PTK195 series chassis. The middle "rear projector" is actually the Green Picture Tube. If the red and blue tubes are working then all major components of the set are fine. The only things I can think of that would stop the green tube are cracked solder joints on the green picture tube socket PC board or an open high value (100k - 120k ohm) resistor on that board. If you do not have experience testing and replacing small parts or resoldering boards in a projection set then have a qualified tech handle it for you.

The set does not have a blue lamp. The set has a blue picture tube. I have found that the best RCA parts distributor is Union Electronics at 1-800-648-6657. The picture tubes in projection sets are very fragile and dangerous to handle. The new picture tube will come dry, so the lens assembly and seal will have to be assembled onto the new tube and then filled with fresh coolant. The set will then need a complete realignment, everything from screen and focus voltages, bias and drive, yoke and ring position to convergence circuits. If you have no experience in any of the above, do not attempt to replace a picture tube. Allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
