RCA DLP PROBLEM AFTER POWER OUTAGE

My RCA DLP set (Model: HD61LPW162 Chassis: ATC322M) has a problem after a tripped circuit. After resetting the power, the bulb came on but not enough to light the screen, the power button blinked a few times and then just stayed on. I have no picture or sound. Now, only the power button will stay lit and will not function when pushed. The remote has no effect. It is like the software has locked up. I have this set connected to a heavy duty power center, so I shouldn’t have received a surge. I have unplugged the power cord to both the set and the center with no results. I left the power cord disconnected for a couple of hours. There is the sound of a relay when i plug the cord back in. I checked the bulb and it is ok. I even operated the lockout switch on the bulb access door just to see if that would get a response. Any suggestions? Is there an internal reset like I have on some HVAC control boards? Thanks for any help.

Blinking Gren Light on 52 Inch DLP


It most likely burned out the Lamp. DLP TV's need time to cool the Lamp after power is turned off.The fan will run for a few minutes after a normal power off condition from the front control button or the remote.When you lost power, the lamp was still hot and was unable to cool down.You can replace the Lamp yourself.Go to www.dlplamps.com

Blinking "Timer" light for WD-62725


If this is a DLP, you may have problems on the FMT/DM boards in the sealed electrical chassis.

That's a big problem, because Mits doesn't make the DM/FMT boards available anymore. They are only available for rebuild from Mitsubishi and other qualified places.

There is a chance that there are some vented capacitors on the DM and FMT boards you might be able to replace, but it's for someone really comfortable with completely disassembling a set, soldering in 8 new caps and rebuilding the chassis.

Rebuilds will run you $400-$500 in rebuild costs and an additional $200-$400 in labor, depending on the joint.

Had a power outage while watching tv. Then 3 blinking lights.


This is an on-going problem with DLP sets. Normally you shut the set off and the cooling fan cools the lamp down and then it shuts off. In your case, of which it's not your fault, however your lamp has taken a major hit by not properly cooling down, in turn, you need to replace your lamp at this time.
I suggest in the future if you have an electrical storm and a chance of a power outage while your watching tv, I would'nt play that model or any other model of a DLP set.
