RCA rear projection power light blinks 5 times then shuts off

Hi:
I have a RCA M50WH72S Rear projection TV that when you power it on the sound comes on for a few seconds goes off then the green light blinks 5 times turns off and sometimes repeats the process 3 or 4 times by itself then shuts down. during the time it has been doing this I can get it to start by pushing the start button repeatedly until the lamp lights but this process has been taking longer over the last couple of weeks until last night the lamp would not light. I replaced the lamp about 6 months ago and I don't believe it is the problem. Thanks for any help.

You can download a PDF from here: http://www.servicemanuals.net/results.aspx?type=SM&brand=0&model=50EX20B Make sure that the coolant is not leaking out onto the printed circuit boards. i have had the remote sensor cause this problem before and also I have had bad capacitors in the sweep and the main power supplies. Good Luck

Can you please supply us with the make and model as well as the blink count of the green light. That count should be indicating the problem circuit. Once that info is posted, we should be able to give you more details and possible solutions.

SOURCE: No audio...only static

This is caused by a corrupted signal being sent out by one of the stations you are watching. There is definitely NO PERMANENT SOLUTION to this problem. Just keep unplugging the TV.

Sounds like the color wheel or lamp I would check the lamp first to insure thats its not broken as they can make a pop when they fail sometime (Breaking) then I would check the color wheel you will be able to tell if the color wheel arear has the noise coming from it.

Check capacitors cp624, cp647 1000uf@35v each. They are in the power supply. Can be seen with bulge on the top. Seems to be a common problem with this model RCA.

Rca m50wh725 rear projection tv.


It has gone into protection mode. This is caused when a short circuit is detected by the power management system inside the tv. Try a hard reset: Unplug the power cord for a full 4 hours; then try it again and see if it will clear the protection fault and reset it. If the reset does not help you will need to have a tech look at the set and take voltage measurements inside to determine which section of the tv has failed and what components will need replacement. The cost of repair is always over $200 and could be much more, depending on the specific parts that need replacing. If the ICs have burned out the repair is around $400. The flashing of the standby light may mean something, but I do not know the diagnostic code RCA is using; most RCA models do not have any diagnostic blink codes in the set. Hope this helps. Let me know if I can help further.
