Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Intermittent picture On my RCA HD61LPW42, the picture has started to go off then on without command. It began a few weeks ago, but now it happens about once a minute, with the off period lasting for about 20 seconds. I understand that it could be either the color wheel, or the light engine. Anybody have this problem? Oh, by the way, the color wheel has been making a loud, whining noise while the set is on.

Most likely your lamp needs to be replaced as that will cause the intr. picture issue. The color wheel will also have to be replaced. The color wheel is only available with the light engine which is part# 263223 and the lamp part #260962

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.

Turning on but no picture at all


I would check to see if the lamp is actually comming on before anything else. The color wheel won't cause a loss of picture. Here is a link to purchase a suitable replacement lamp for the TV. It is 300 dollars less than the RCA version. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Thomson/RCA/HD61LPW42/Lighting+Technologies+International/LTI/260962RL/New.aspx
