Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

1 Answer

RCA SCENIUM HD50LPW166 worked fine, then "POP!!" has power

Light on, yet no picture or sound. I can hear a clicking sound coming from the back- and a wind-up sound like something is trying to get started. I can see something small sparking through the side vents which is in sync with the clicking sound. Blue power "on" light flashes 5 times.

You lamp is bad. even if it looks good, its not firing (you're seeing the spark gap fire, indicating this). the lamp is customer replacable and roughly $200. the 5 blink error is a general shutdown error

I have the same problem on my rca serial# hd50lpw166


It seems more to be an issue with your ballast, of course this is if you replaced the lamp before, but regarding the clicking sounds it's most probable to be your ballast. discountdashmerchantdotcom, the ballast aren't that expensive, they're around 60 dlls

RCA DLP HD50LPW166 Works fine for 15sec


Same Problem here. After some investigating and speaking with one Lamp supplier they told me to replace the Lamp Ballast first (this is mine EUC 120 P/H11 9137 008 09405). I found one on Ebay. Since this may also wear out the bulb, I may have to replace that also. If I can get my TV working (HD50LPW166YX6) for around $150.00 for both, I'll be happy even if i get only 6 month of use out of it. Did I mention the TV was free? :o) Hope this helps.

RCA Scenium


Sounds like a cold solder joint in the power supply or faulty capacitors.
