Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV
I wrote prior asking about my RCA 61" rear projection DLP tv model # HD61LPW164. The color wheel was replaced and then we had sound but still no picture. We ordered a new bulb and replaced that and now we are getting no picture still and no sound. When the tv is turned on the light power indicator goes on (blue) and it sounds like the color wheel is winding and then it stops and the light blinks 5x and then it starts up again and the light goes solid and the process repeats. We had the tv apart and 3 or 4 times the lamp came on and then shut off 2 seconds or so after the color wheel stopped spinning. Does anyone know what this means? and if so what part and where to get it for the best price? and we don't have the tv manual anymore but is there a way to find out what the blinking sequence means?
Already put $300 into it and just want to know when to cut our losses.
Thanks so much in advance!
This set has had issues with the power supply. It may have defective capacitors. This would require disassembly and replacement of parts.
Do you have test equipment and a service manual?
If you have a repair shop
do the repair, your cost may be $300.00- $400.00 to repair.
