Question about RCA HD50LPW164 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

No Picture, No Sound

I have had my RCA HD50LPW164 since about 2005. I haven't had any problems, then one day the TV will not turn on. The blue power indicator light is a solid blue but when I press the power button there is no response, no picture, no sound.

Any ideas what this can be? I know you have to change the bulb every once in a while but shouldn't I still get a response from the TV and sound? I was also told it could be color wheel failure. How do I locate the source of the problem?

It does sound like the tube, have the shop use a tube restoration machine to rejuvinate the tube, and replace the eprom to try to correct the no power down situation.

My RCA Scenium 50in. is not turning on!!


Its sounds as if the lamp has exploded or the color wheel has. I will post a link to a site that has a trouble shooting manual on CD called RCA DLP Disc #1 which covers every DLP in the ATC line which is what your model is. They have it either in cd form or they will email it. Its a very good resource for fixing your own set.

Mitsubishi ws65613 no picture or sound, blue screen only


Good day, Bgchzy;
This model is known for the tubes leaking fluid, glucose, on the PCB. Check the front of the chassis for said fluid, it may be only a drop, so look closely.
To fix, after TV has no power, try cleaning the board with cleaner and brush, let dry. I suspect this because of multi unrelated problems.

I have the exact same problem with my tv. Unfortunately, I'm not sure what is wrong or how to fix it either. I notice your post is from July. Have you found a solution since then? - Sarah
