Question about RCA P46921 46" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Tv will not turn on - green light clicks on then right back off.

I have just moved my bit screen tv two times in the last 2 months. I have moved from one location to another. I have never had any problems with my TV. It is approximately 10 yrs old. It doesn't seem like it is getting a power connection. can you help me, I'm broke and don't have the money right now to call a repair man. If I can not fix it, how much do you think it will cost and what is the going fee for a repair call?? I live in Alabama. Please help me. Thank you-Deb

Some places charge just to come to your house and then they give an estimate,that could be around 40 to 50 dollars,the actual repair depends on the problem the tv has,call someone and tell them you have a money problem and if they can give a discount in the whole repair but still you need to put some money toghether,

Im sorry to inform you Deb, that your problem could be a major problem like the high voltage transformer and the horizonyal output transistor could be bad and the transformer is no longer available for these sets or could be a simple cold solder connection on a small coil or something like the flyback transformer. In any case this is a solid state set and has no user replaceable parts inside and should only be serviced by a trained tech. It could be landfill or a simple service call. Good Luck

My sceptre lcd tv is displaying really bright pink and green colors

I had a similar problem with blacks showing up as green. Turning up the brightness a bit fixed it for me. Not a permanent fix, but something to try if you want to make it last a bit longer until you can get a new one or fix it.

Installing replacement for neighbour and cannot get lights to work. Single switch running 6 flood lights(each 60w) with 2 burned out. Have power to switch as can get standard switch to work. This is...

If I understand correctly you have standard on-off situation for exterior lights. Load is 360 Watt, well within capacity of all in-wall timers.
You have identified the hot wire.
You have confirmed that load works, and that electricity is ON.
Regular on-off switch works fine.

Now the information is a bit fuzzy.
You are installing a timer to control this load?
You do not identify timer.

So I will jump into the shark waters and ASSUME ...
That your timer has 4 wires?

A) Timer is battery operated Intermatic ST01C or EJ500 with red, blue, black, green.
Red is capped off.
Green goes to ground.
Black goes to hot from breaker.
Blue goes to Load.
Click on-off button, if timer does not operate, reverse blue and black.
If lights click on-off, then you put red wire where blue wire should be

B) Timer does not have battery and is Tork, GE, Intermatic, Woods, Utilitec, Westek and has red, black, white and green wires.
Here's what to do:
Green goes to ground
Two switch wires connect to red and black in any order right now.
In back of electric box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut. These are neutral wires. Timer white wire connects to the neutrals. This will power the internal clock motor.
If box does not have neutrals, the timer white wire connects to bare ground along with green wire.
Click manual override button, if lights do not turn on, then reverse red and black wires.

Why does you neighbor's timer not last very long?
I don't know.
If timer has battery and timer exposed to cold temperatures, then battery lasts about a month.
If timer has no battery, you have to send me the model number and let me look into it.
Use a circuit analyzer on receptacle on same breaker and see if anything shows that might interfere with electronics.

Add a comment any time.

Tv won't turn on. It blinks green then red.

Question shows tv is Sony KDF-60WF655.
Green light blinks when tv gets prepare to fire up lamp, check internal circuits then show picture on front screen.
Red light blinking shows some kind of internal problem during circuit check and protection got activated upon some failure.
Count the red light blink as you will see 3 second long pause and post it here to diagnose what section of tv got problem.
Did you replaced its lamp in last 2-3 years?

HELP PLEASE Vizio Plasma tv broken again - possible driver board?

This could cause by the power supply or the mainboard.

- If the LED stay Green when you turn on the TV. But you can not turn it off, in this case the main board has failed. Replace the mainboard will fix the problem.

- If the LED light always stay at Orange, you can not turn on of off. In this case the mainboard also has failed.

- If you turn on the TV you will hear the power supply click on the LED is green then it click off the light turn Orange. In this case the power supply has failed.

Which boards did the repair shop replace?

Hope this will help.
