Question about RCA HDLP50W151 50" Rear Projection HDTV

RCA DLP 50'' TV Sound and Picture problem

I turn on the TV and it has no sound or picture. The green light indicator for "on" lights up and then flashes. As it is doing this there is a crackling and popping noise, it sounds like the fan is running and then shutting off. It will go thru this process repeatedly.
On light comes on then blinks, cracks and pops and fan powers up and then quits.

Turn tv on. green light solid display, no picture or sound


The flashing green light is likely indicative of a self-test failure, indicating the TV has detected some sort of internal fault. With no picture or sound, one strong suspect is the power supply. Flat-panel TV's have an internal DC power supply that converts the inbound AC current, and when these fail, or are unable to supply a minimum level of power to the set, it can behave as you describe, providing only enough power for the green light to illuminate.

RCA HD61LPW42 - no picture


I haven't worked on an RCA DLP but have on Samsung DLP, based on your description it sounds like the color wheel is bad. Take the back off and turn on TV make sure its not a fan making the noise ,but most likely its the "wheel" it is inside the light engine probably right next to where the lamp is plugged in. If the whine comes from this area definitely the wheel.

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.
