Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

1 Answer

I HAVE A RCA DLP TV AND THE LAMP KEEPS BREAKING EVERYYEAR I have an RCA DLP tv. The model number is M50WH72SYX2, serial number H986C6031. Purchased a year and a half ago, just a few months after the year warranty ran up. The tv would shut off and then the green light would blink 5 times. I called their customer service team and was told it was the bulb. They wanted $399.00 for a new lamp replacement. I found the replacement bulb for $100.00 and replaced the bulb. The TV seemed to work okay for a while afterward, but now it's beginning to shut off in the middle of watching the tv. We noticed if we had it on for a few hours in the morning, then shut if off during the day, we wouldn't be able to watch tv again for a while. So, we usually dealt with that. But now, it's to where we turn it on and it shuts off again in less than 2 hours. We know it's not the bulb because when we turn it on the next day, the colors are still there...We have it quite a ways from the wall, but it still seems to overheat?? I can't quite figure out what to do, other than buy a new tv, but that can be so expensive. Any suggestions?? Thanks!

    Thanks for the help -- Though I am states away from him. He's in Austin and I am in Utah... Don't think he'd make a house call to me that far away. Sounds like this guy really knows what he's doing... I may try and call him, perhaps he knows someone in my area that may be able to help.

    Thanks for trying.

Sounds like the color wheel or lamp I would check the lamp first to insure thats its not broken as they can make a pop when they fail sometime (Breaking) then I would check the color wheel you will be able to tell if the color wheel arear has the noise coming from it. If you need more assistance let me know.

The picture is not bright in a light-filled room. Will a change of DLP lamp help? Are there different lamps that will improve picture quality?


Yes.Depend how old is ur DLP tv,the Projection Lamp only a light source,mostly depended on the Light projection Engine itself.Get the original RCA DLP lamp or same lamp model now inside the tv,will help and work best for ur tv.Just don't get generic DLP tvs lamp,it cheaper poorer quality.

DLP TV lamp went out, new one doesn't work either,


Well you have a Samsung TV, in this case, it's most probable that you might have an issuw with your ballast. It might not have enough energu to keep up with your new lamp. You might ask yourself, How could this be if it worked with the old lamp? Well the old lamp didn't have all of it's gases, like it used, when you recently purchased the tv or lamp, and as time goes by, those gases tend to go out.

I have the exact same TV and have had the exact same problem. I talked to a TV repairman who said it has to be my deflection board. I just found this out today so I am looking all over the web for a deflection board. I hope this helps! Tyson

RCA Scenium DLP


Usually that is an indication of a bad lamp. A lamp can be ordered and replaced yourself. Use the model number of the television to order the correct lamp.

Make sure the tv is at least a foot away from the wall so it can circulate air and keep the bulb cool. Try to avoid turning it on and off multiply times in a short period of time.

RCA 50" dlp lamp dead?


There are many different problems with RCA televisions. One could be a color wheel. Another could be a bad ballast. www.Lamp-Replacement.com has a guide and solutions for your RCA lamp 265866 or 270414. The problem is most likely a bad ballast, which is supposed to pre-charge your lamp and ignite it. If you aren't even getting to that stage, you can trace the problem to another component or power supply.
