RCA Projection TV Model P52923

Hi Mr Circuitcity,

I hope all is well with you. I have a RCA rear projection TV model P52923. I was watching a show when it just turned off. I tried to turn it back on, but it would not nothing happened. No video or audio. I tried both the remote control and the TV buttons but it still would not turn on.

I opened the back panel and check the small glass fuse in the power supply (chassis # CTC195K3). The fuse is good. This fuse is near the 120V supply chord. There is no coolant leak.

When the TV is plugged in, I hear a ticking sound that gradually slows down and disappears. There is trace of black/brown hardened cake on the top of the flyback (looks like varnish, tar, or burnt insulation.) But I know that the caking has been there because it is covered with dust.

What do I check next? I have training in electronics but not really heavy on televisions.

Please help. The wife has been on my case since HER television broke down. (My only test instrument is a digital multi-meter.)

I could not find the model number of my TV from the products listed on the tab. So I picked the closest one which is RCA P52926.

Thank you very much

    I have a rca 52923 rear projection that I am looking at for a bar,
    I know the ihvt is bad "scorching around the top". the part number on the side of the ihvt is "PN15128" a note on the side is 28kv.
    the chassis shows 38kv.
    What is the correct part number for the ihvt and the pass transistor. I what to change both.
    The set is dead,fuse good. Are there caps to change after this kind of failure?

Good Day, Ajejo;
Sorry I'm not Circuit City, but work for them for many years down here in TX.
The chassis number is the best way to find out information about the TV. The CTC195K3 is very commonly known to have bad 'flyback'. The crusting you indicated on top of said transformer is the indication that it is defective, I've changed 80-90 of them over the years.
So, job well done, your wife must be proud of you.
Part information: Location; T14401, Part Number; 239111, Name; IHVT, Integrated High Voltage Transformer.
Caution when replacing the fly, looking at the bottom, the pins are shaped like a horse shoe. At the closed end there is an separate pin. Make sure new has the extra pin (for focus), Iv'e had many lately that does not have it.

Good Luck, big IRISH. PS; good job good eye let me know.

My Volume and Channel button won't work and so I have bout 2 remotes, neither of them have worked, one is the RCR311BR remote which has been noted to work for this tv. What else can I do

I have a 2000 model RCA P52923 and I had the same problem occur a couple of days ago. The sound hasn't worked for a couple of years, but the TV is connected to an RCA surround sound to resolve that issue. Most recently, while watching TV, it began to start scanning channels by itself. I shut it off and unplugged it for a couple of days, but each time that I turn it on, it begins to immediately start scanning each channel. Neither the remote, nor the channel buttons on the set are able to stop the scanning, and neither of them will perform any functions, including turning the set on and off.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Good Day;
The most common problem with these Models/ Chassis' is IHVT (intergrated high voltage transformer) going bad. They have around 99% failure rate. T14401 > part number > 239111 >IHVT.
Try to get RCA part a little more pricey but more reliable then after market ones. You can tell if it's bad by the crust on the top of IHVT.
Good Luck, big IRISH.

52 inch rca rear projection tv won't turn on

I repaired an RCA 52" TV. I found two capacitors on the board that were bad. They were bulged on the top. This seems to be a common problem on many projection TV's. Try searching this website using the model number as your keyword.
Hope this helps,
