Question about RCA P46924 46" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

46" projection not coming on

All the sudden when you push the power on button there is this terrible static sound and of course nothing happens. The sound continues long as the power button is held down. TV has been great and is built into the wall, so would like to keep it if it can be fixed. Was on high quality surge protector with battery back up and has been tried directly into the wall socket. Thanks!

    Doubled checked and the sound was not coming from the speaker so I did take the back panel off and do see arc flashes of light as you described. Thanks Jim

The P46924 uses the PTK195 series chassis. You do NOT have a power supply or flyback (high voltage) transformer problem. The regulator is the small MOSFET on the heat sink next to the AC power cord. The STK730-010 regulator on a small board above the chassis is the power supply for the convergence. If the STK regulator was bad you would have a picture but the colors would not line up. If the flyback was shorted the set would instantly shut down without making a sound. If the main power supply was not working the set would not even start at all. Is the static sound you hear coming from the speakers, or is it originating down inside the set? Does the static sound like a set that does not have an antenna hooked up or does it sound like a snapping, arcing sound? Try this: Remove the back of the set, dim the lights in the room and have someone press the power button while you look in the back. Do you see flashes of light, like sparks or high voltage arcing? Let me know what you see and hear and we will guide you to the next step.

    If you see the arcing by the flyback transformer, the kind of whitish-looking "box" at the back of the main board with the thick red wire coming out of the top, then the plastic insulation around the flyback has a pinhole in it allowing the high voltage to leak out. In this case the flyback should be replaced. If the arcing is coming from up around the front of the chassis, then it could be the splitter (distribution) box or one of the anode caps on one the picture tubes which is arcing. Either way, the set should be serviced by a tech experienced in RCA projection sets.

You have an power supply problem & or a high voltage flyback transformer gone bad. The regulator is usually an STK followed by some numbers, located on a separate small board above the main chassis in the rear of the tv. The flyback is down on the main chassis & has a red high voltage lead wire coming out of it that goes to the high voltage/focus block.

Power light comes on but nothing happens

What type of laptop? What operating system?

Laptops don't boot for the following reasons: 1) Bad Power Cord. 2) Bad DC Power Jack where the power cord plugs into the laptop. 3) Static Charge Buildup. 4) Bad Motherboard.

The above 4 reasons are when you press the power button and absolutely nothing happens. You hear no fans running, no disk drive running, no one time clicking sound on the CD Drive and No light for a second or two when the CD drives click. In the case of a motherboard issue sometimes you will hear beep sounds or see blinking lights. Those beep sounds and blinking lights tells the technician what is going on with your motherboard and why it will not boot. If you see the blinking lights or hear beeps count them.

So you have a power light which means your power cord and dc power jack is good. So lets see if you have a static charge buildup.

Remove the Power Cord and the Battery from the laptop, then Press and Hold the Power Button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds put the power cord back into the laptop, but leave the battery out. Press the power button to see if it boots. If it does you had a Static Charge Buildup and it's ok to put your battery back in. If it does not you more than likely have an issue with your motherboard.

How to get rid of static

Your radio allows you to listen for weak signals on

the current channel at the press of a key.

To turn ON the Monitor Mode:

• For brief listening, press MON button. The RX

icon blinks.

• Press and hold MON button for 2 seconds until

two beeps sound for continuous listening. The

receiver circuit stays open, letting both the noise

and weak signals to be heard.

To turn OFF Monitor Mode:

Press MON button to return to "Normal" mode,
and the RX icon stops blinking and disappears.

REFERENCE THE PICTURE. GOOD LUCK!!!afterhourspc.jpg

Try pressing the power button and press [del] button. See if it goes to the bios setup page. If it does, have your harddisk checked. It could be corrupt OS or problem with your harddisk.
