Question about RCA D61W130 61" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Rca scenium turns off and on

I have an RCA Scenium D61W136D. It is 2 1/2 yrs old and it has just started turning off and on by itself. We will be watching it and then it makes a flicker and a "popping/static" noise and picture goes off, then the power light goes off and then the power and picture come back on and sometimes it continues this cycle or it may stay on for a while and not do it again for a few hours or until the next day. The tv keeps automatically turning off every 5 minutes. It is a RCA Scenium (D61W130). Is there a remote control code to fix this?

    I have an RCA Scenium model # D40W135D with the same problem as described. The unit will operate normally then shut off and power up, the cycle repeats. Any assistance would be helpful.

I wish I had the idea to install a cooling fan, a local repair shop fixed mine by replacing a power supply component, cost $575 including sales tax. I suspect that a cooling fan would increase the life of the power supply, I will install one!

I had the same problem with mine. It was overheating. I installed a small cpu cooling fan on the back of the unit. No problems since. Good luck.

If your RCA TV is 14 years old, it may be nearing end of life. You may find repair is not worth considering.

You are on the right track, if the lamp is not lighting bright enough it could do this exact thing, the three tries is standard on RCA products, called the 3 strikes and your out---set will try 3 times to make it on and then shut down.

The color wheel while possible usually makes a high pitched fan like sound and with lamp out you should be able to see it to know if missing parts of the wheel or shattered.
