Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV
As soon as I plug in my RCA DLP Scenium HD50LPW164, the power light comes on and won't turn off.
Acording to the user manual...
"When you first plug your TV into an outlet, the Power indicator on thefront panel will light and blink for approximately 30 seconds and then go off during the initialization of the TV. The TV can only beturned on after the Power indicator goes off. This happens every time power is reapplied to the TV."
It seems that the system never finishes its power initializationsequence. The only noise I hear is the fan spinning. I'm thinking maybea fuse or bad power supply? or perhaps a bad ballast? Is theresomething I can do to test these components before I blindly buyreplacement parts?

are you sure when you replaced the lamp you seated it correctly, no really hapens all the time so dont feel bad. also another common error is the lanp door is not seated or closed and locked properly that is the most common problem that happens after a lamp is replaced, or the new lamp is bad never throw out your old one as somr dealers will give you what they call a core refund , they reuse the case around the old lamp. some can be worth as much as 50 to 60 bucks!!!

What is the Model Number that is printed on back of TV?
You say TV is DLP ,but you are posting Model# HD52W59 that is for Projection that has 3 Tubes Red/Green/Blue Tubes.
If TV is DLP then problem will be the Color Wheel
If it is Projection then it has a coil on the deflection board that either needs to be replaced or
resolder ciol and take a Glue gun and glue over the top of coil. Coil LL037 on the right handside of the FBT flyback transfomer.
