Question about RCA HD50LPW42 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

No picture, installed new lamp but it is not getting voltage

I replaced the lamp because it was bad but can't get the picture to come on. Checked for voltage where the lamp plugs in and there is none. Can this mean the ballast went out and that is what caused the lamp to fail?

No can't check power out to high it is about 15,000 volts out put all you can do is is listen to ballast and see if you here a spark if not bad make sure you have the light door switch bypassed.

I installed a new lamp and the tv is still blinking saying the lamp is bad. There is no picture.


its most likely the ballast which is causing the issue. The ballast is what provides the power source to light the lamp. You can get the ballast at www.tvrepairworld.com and they can provide instructions on how to replace the ballast

I replaced my bulb & it still blinking& the bulb will not light. And I made sure the switch in the back was up! Help,!


Check to make sure it is getting voltage from the ballast and if as I suspect has a color wheel that it is intact--remove lamp and look at it.

You cooould have a bad ballast, but it's probably either that you put the lamp in wrong, or you have a defective lamp though. There's a 33% chance that any of those are the case. Unplug the TV for 30 seconds. Plug it back in. Try turning it on again. Make sure you didn't over tighten the lamp during install. Especially the screw on the side. It should be a tight connection. Send the lamp back and get a new one. Usually they come with a warranty. If the new one doesn't work, it's either the ballast, or the power supply.

When tv is turned on got flickering picture. Checked bulb and bulb appears intact and in good condition. Bulb lights up for a second then shuts off then no picture. Any ideas? Mitsubishi wd52525 DLP


I suspect the B+ voltage on the power supply can't regulate the voltage needed for the lamps to run entirely. The B+ voltage regulator looks like a small black box with a tapered top. This is dangerous to replace so be careful. Once you get a new one installed this will fix the issue you are having.


Hope this helps :)

Sony Wega KF-42E200A Projection Bulb


New bulb is just fine.
3 blink shows that lamp cover after replacement of bulb in TV is not fixed properly or not seated well in its position.
Put new bulb and carefully place back lamp cover in its position because lamp cover will press tinny safety switch inside that will send signal to system control of TV that lamp is installed properly.
Turn On TV and get vivid picture of Sony.
Thanks.

WD-62525 My tv wont work. new lamp does not work. have tried ever


I had the same problem with my 52". I had the error code of 34(lamp abnormal). I put a lamp in that I knew was good and changed the ballast with one that I knew was good and had 8 caps replaced on the power board(they where not puffed but did them anyways) and still nothing. light came on for 3 seconds and went off again and tv shut down with a red status light. I did some reading on other web sites and found that if the color wheel is bad the tv will not work. I found a light engine on ebay for a 100 bucks used and installed that and now it works perfect.

Headlamps keep blowing


may be you should go for genuine lamps from the compan y and that too of same voltage.. check if you are puttig bulbs of lower voltage and bulbs getting blown up.. if it is not so then get your induction coil checked..may be its producing more current than required and blowing up the lamps.. i hope this will help you out.. belated Merry X-mas and Happy New Year :)

Infocus lamp not firing


more then likely the ballast has gone bad and the lamp is not getting the right voltage to fire. Only other thing you can do is remove the lamp the turn the power on and check the voltage at the connector. This will not check the triggering voltage mine you only the lower operating voltage. But since you have replace the bulb with a known good one I'm betting on the ballast is bad.
