Question about Gateway DLP56TV 56" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

DLP lamp won't stay on

I have a Gateway 56" dlp same as the Vizio RP56.
When I turn the tv on the lamp will only light up for a couple seconds then turn off. I have cleaned all the fans and they all turn on. I checked the color wheel and that turns on. The status indicator lights on front show a lamp error but I replaced the lamp and it still does the same thing.

    I have the same problem. I have been web searching for a service/repair manual & had no luck.

    Hey that's a better manual than I found for the Vizio. It was only 26 pages and worthless. I'm not sure how that lamp works if the ballast just lights it once and it stays on or if it keeps igniting it, My lamp comes on for maybe 4 or 5 seconds then turns off and then the tv restarts several seconds later.

    Brand new bulb not lighting on Vizio rp56 DLP

  • ILYA3D Mar 18, 2009

    Hey, guys! Two things I found out. I checked my lamp phillips E23 is 100v. That was the problem!!! Ballast is 100V-120V. That is why my Tv was shooting down after couple minutes and restarts it self. So. I bought new lamp OSRAM 100v-120v, now it works great!!! But it always budd...Now TV after 1hour of work shows weird colors like negative photo picture and has some sound, than again shots himself. I'm for sure this is Optical Block(color whell). So, If anyone had the same problem share some experience with us. Sorry for spelling.

After 2 hours of web searching, I finally found a service repair manual. Below is the link to the site. After scanning this manual, beginning on pg 61 is the troubleshooting guide. It sounds like the problem is the ballast if the lamp checks out ok. Let me know your thoughts after looking at this and hopefully the both of us can work together & come up with the right solution on how to fix our problem with our 56" Gateway DLP.

SOURCE: replaced bulb for Vizio rp56 DLP got power no light

There are interlocks that will prevent the set from starting if the lamp is not installed correctly or if the access door is not closed properly. Either condition will result in a "lamp error" indication. Try reinstalling the lamp being careful to be suer that it is seated properly. Also make sure that the access door is fully closed and aligned. If you continue to get the lamp error, it is possible that the ballast circuit is defective. This is the part that generates the power to "fire" the lamp.

Keep us posted.

Viviteck 56''in.HDTV DLP TV. replaced with a new lamp bulb since I replaced this the tv wont come on only the sound for about 5 seconds then tv is silent again. any tips, Please.


The first thing to check on any TV that has a replaceable lamp is to make sure the lamp door is back on and seated correctly. You also need to make sure that the lamp is seated all the way in. The lamp door and in most cases the lamps have saftey switches they have to activate for the TV to work normal.
