I didn't get an itemized list but the repair was approximatly $450.00. I believe one of the items that was replaced during that repair was the HV Splitter #205064 and I believe it was replaced with a generic.I tried this procedure that I found on the net and it worked on mine so I think my HV splitter is gone again but this time I'm going to get the RCA original.

"The most likely (and most documented) answer is your HV splitter. A quick test is to remove the anode from your hv flyback (not your hv splitter... arcs like Maxwell said it would). Remeber to unplug your TV and give it a day or two to discharge the caps (this is not a guarantee that they are discharged since charge can be present up to a year without resistively bleeding them off (soft crowbaring) This hv flyback transformer is located in your rca just inside the ctc171 or ctc170 wooden crate. You can easily get to it by removing the back panel. It looks like an oil filter with screws (if that helps) with a big red wire attached to it (that'* the HV anode). Pull the red wire out, unlocking the holding tab with a straight blade screw driver. Duct tape it and keep it away from anything conducting (preferrably isolate it with a medium such as a toilet paper cardboard insert). Now, there should be a rubber grommet slipped over the wire (if it'* not visible, reinsert the wire a little ways to try and retrieve it... you need the grommet on the wire when you put it back. With all this said, plug in your tv and push the power button. if power return and sound is heard from the speakers, then you need to replace your HV splitter. Run a search on hv splitter RCA 213986. This is for the ps60682, but another one I found is the RCA 205064."
