Question about RCA HD50LPW164 50" Rear Projection HDTV
TV turns on normal with good pictue ans sound. With in a minute the sound stops and the picture freezes. The Blue LED blinks 10 times fast /blink per second/ and one time long /LED stay on for 4-5 seconds/, than the LED turns off. The TV restarts at this point and the same cycle repetes again and again.
What 10 short and 1 long blink LED code means?

You need to replace the capacitors on the power board. this is a very common problem with the RCA dlps See my tip under my profile for the ATC336 chassis RCA, your model is the ATC311 but it applies to your model as well.

Hello; I am John at J D Electronics in Poland Maine. I have had an RCA model M50WH72S setting dead in my shop for over a year now and is now mine. The set would start intermittently and run for an hour and die. Other times it would not start at all and the LED would flash 5 or 6 times and stop. With no support from Thomson/ RCA, I was on my own. The extended warranty Co said to try the light engine first. I replaced the light engine with no improvement, just the led flashing. I was not going to pay 500 to 700 dollars for other boards to try to fix this piece of JUNK.I have since read several blogs that point to power supply caps as being the problem. I took this piece of junk apart for the last time before I hauled it to the dump. I pulled out the power supply on the left as you face the back of set. I noticed 2 Electrolytic caps had " domed shaped tops ,which is a good sign of failure or overheating. They are 1000 ufd @ 35Volts 105 degree rating. They were both bad along with 2 more on the same board ! They are labeled CP624 and CP647 on the bottom edge of the board inside the "c" shaped heat sink. The other two are above the chopper transformer labeled CP641 @ CP639. replacing these fixed the set. Call DigiKey 800-344-4539 part # 493-1588 are ten for $7.00. Don't spend money on a lamp you don't need.
