    I have the same problem, only I replaced the lamp and it still has no picture. The power light blinks occasionally as it did before the lamp replacement.This, according to the manual was an indication that the lamp was faulty. Apparantly that's not all that is faulty. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I have the same exact problem with my tv also. I myself had also replaced the whole lamp assembly as the owners manual and RCA customer support told mr to do and still has the same problem. Its getting ridiculous let me know if you found out anything.

    same fuvking problem

    I have kind of the issue. My TV turns on and then about 45 minutes later it turns off and wont turn on again. I took the back off and held the voltage regulator to 98v and it stayed on for another 1 hour. I can keep my TV going for as long as I want as long as I have the back off and a house fan blowing on the back of it. Not sure 100% what is wrong with it but I will have to try re-seating the lamp..... by the way try re-seating the lamp.... sometimes that is all it takes. Also if you take off the screen in the front and clean the front of the bulb that can help as well.

could be power supply problem or high voltage problem. check caps in main power supply first.look for caps that have tops puffed up ususlly three or four.....

SOURCE: Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, I have a RCA 61" M61WH74S rear projection


I am not sure which fan you are putting back as there are a couple. I am attaching 2 pics that show the fan locations. You may want to get the service manual for your model which shows the dissassembly proceedures. You can get it on page 2 of the service manual catagory from www.tvrepairworld.com by download within minutes of ordering service manuals are indispensable when serviceing a Television.
