Question about RCA P50830BL 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Remote not working with P50830BL

TV works okay but the remote stopped working with the TV. Tested the remote with another RCA TV and it works okay, so believe the problem is with the TV's remote sensor. Can someone offer an inexpensive/ home solution to diagnose and remedy this problem?

Yes it certainly could be a problem with the remote sensor assy., as I have had bad ones from rca in the past, But mostly its been bad connections from board to board or a jumper or even a few times the Microprocessor IC was bad. The best and only way I know to trouble shoot this, without shotgunning part after part and may get lucky, is to scope out the data line comming out of the sensor while hitting a function on the remote. If theres no data comming out then check the b+ going to the sensor also. Trace the signal all the way to the processor. If signal does make it all the way there , then of course the processor is the problem. Now theres High voltage inside these sets, so its not advisable for a handi-persomn to fix this set themselfs. There really are no user serviceable parts inside these sets as they are all soldered in and you need speacial equipment to properly work on most if not all sets these days. I would say a fair repair cost for a problem like this I would estimate at from200 to 350 depending on the exact problem. Good Luck

Connected an RCA sound bar to my RCA tv an the remote control wont work anymore

You may have situated it so it is blocking the pickup for the remote. Your remote is talking but the TV can't hear it. Make sure no part of the front is blocked by the sound bar.

Need Source Dode for an RCA TV model DETK185R.

The RCA DETK185R TV can be controlled with Universal Remote Controls. I tested several.
The best match was a 4 digit universal remote from GE. Model Number 10841. Code 1961 worked almost everything.
With a 5 digit remote from RCA, model number RCRN04GR, Code 12372 worked Power, Channel, Volume and Input.
A 3 digit remote from GE, model RC24912-B. Code 166 was able to control Power, Channel, Volume and Input.
An old 3 digit remote from RCA, model RCU-403A. Code 062 was able to control Power, Channel and Volume.
Most remotes from GE and RCA will use the same code numbers. So even if you have a different model remote from GE or RCA, these codes may work.
These codes should work with other TV models in this series from RCA, including Detk215r, Detk186r and Detk156r.

Remote problems

Take the remote to your local Radio Shack and have it tested.. They used to carry IR cards and now have a pen-like tester that can tell if the remote is operating properly. Then, if you're sure the code is correct, you probably will have to have the IR detector in the Tv replaced...
