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 by download within minutes of ordering service manuals are indispensable when serviceing a Television.

I have a 67 DLP samsung TV that recently started turning it self off after just a few minutes of being on. When it turns off about ten seconds go by then you hear a click and the two green LEDs on the...

It could be the temp sensor going bad. This sensor sits on top of the metal housing which the bulb assembly slides into. The bulb assembly will have a hole on top and this is where the sensor is above. There is a small blue and white wire that plugs into it. If you pull the wire out and put a paper clip or wire in the coupling you will basically bypass the sensor connecting the blue and white wire. If your tv turns on then that is your problem. Its cheap too. Here were my symptoms..1] Turn tv on 2] Bulb would light up..(which eliminates the ballast) regular picture would show up (which eliminates the bulb and color wheel) 3] 30 seconds later tv would shut down with 3 flashing lights. After bypass the tv turned on as always and hasnt shut down yet. Always un plug tv first. Get the replacement part to avoid overheating and possible fire

I have an RCA 62" M61WH74S hdtv which I'm told needs a barrister, possibly, also projection light bulb. Is this fixable at a reasonable price, if so where in the Sav. Ga. area could I find help?

The part is actually a ballast and I would recomend shopping online being sure to only get RCA brand parts. By the time you pay shipping you,ll still come out ahead.

How do you change the drivers side headlight bulb??

open up the hood, im pretty sure the layout would be somewhat similar to my jetta and my gti, once the hood is open ight on the radiator support there should be a plastic cover on the back covering the back of the headlight, noticable with a picture of a light on it, remove that, take out the old bulb, take it to a wal mart,napa,autozone, any parts store, get the similar light, replace it, check to see if the light is working, then put the covers back on
