I have an RCA Home Theater 52" projection TV that has always performed like a champ, but now there is no picture at all. The sound is still awesome but absolutely no video. I've opened the back panel to get a look at the tubes and they do not light up at all, as if they are not getting any power. I don't recall anything happening before this happened. The video simply stopped working but sound has always worked great and still does. The unit is RCA Home Theater model #P52151WK, chassis #PTK169PTB

Re: P52151WK 52" projection TV, no video
Is the audio coming from the TV's internal speakers, or from an external sound system? In the 169 series chassis, if the power supply caps or secondary rectifier are bad, or if the high voltage splitter has shorted inside, the set will not run and there will be no picture or sound from the TV. If the picture is completely black but the TV still has audio, press the menu button and see if the menu comes up on the screen. If the menu is there, check your cables on the back of the TV. If you are using a cable or satellite box, the box could be bad or the video wire could be bad or loose. If you do not get the on-screen menu, then I would guess that the solder joint next to the flyback transformer that sends filament (heater) voltage up to the picture tubes has cracked, or the low value resistor in the heater circuit has opened up. If that is the case, have the set serviced by a qualified tech familiar with the 169 series chassis.

Hi,it sounds like a DMD issue if your tv is a DLp.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm The Dmd is basically where the image is created it will be the actual screen.When it starts to fail picture will be chpped or pixilated like what you are getting.God bless you!

No , if fuse was blown you would not get the popping. How old is unit ? It sounds like your high volt splitter. common problem with rca. repair should not cost more than 250.00. you will want to have chassis number and manu date for help
Dir TV projection Techcions, I own RCA Model:P52937 Chassis No.PTK195M26B. After a big flood here in Chicago, my basement got flooded and my projection TV was in water up to 1 foot. Befor I turned it on, I dreid it out perfectly, then, I turned it on, and a couple components from the power supply got burned up to the point where I am not able to read the part numbers that are on it. I was wondering if you have this kind of chassis and model service manual for this projection TV, or conponet part number i location 101 on mother boatd power supply. Thank you in advance, Darius
