Looking for a ballast for RCA HDLP TV

Hello,
My name is Barbie W.
I am looking for a Ballast for my RCA HDLP TV model # HD50LPW175.
I replaced my lamp and still no picture. You can hear it come on but the lights still blink 3 to 5 times indicating a problem. I have talk to the people I got the lamp from and he said it's the ballast. However I have been looking for 3 weeks and can not find one for this tv. I was not aware that I would be able to find parts for it when I bought it. Could you please by the grace of God help me.

SOURCE: how can i check my lamp ballast in a rca scenium

are you sure when you replaced the lamp you seated it correctly, no really hapens all the time so dont feel bad. also another common error is the lanp door is not seated or closed and locked properly that is the most common problem that happens after a lamp is replaced, or the new lamp is bad never throw out your old one as somr dealers will give you what they call a core refund , they reuse the case around the old lamp. some can be worth as much as 50 to 60 bucks!!!

Blue light flashes 5x times for about a minute,manual says bulb,replaced bulb,still doesnt work.


The "bulb" indication means that the lamp has not "fired". This can be due to a defective lamp or a defective ballast. Since you have replaced the lamp, I would next chack the ballast. A professional service shop should be able to help with this. It is extremely rare for a lamp to be delivered defective.

Hope this helps a bit.

If it's agreen wire with a stripe (usually yellow) it is likely a chassis ground (ie center plug of 3 prong electrical cord). The best source for schematics I've found (although they cost) is servivcemanuals.net.
Hope this helps.

I have the same problem on my rca serial# hd50lpw166


It seems more to be an issue with your ballast, of course this is if you replaced the lamp before, but regarding the clicking sounds it's most probable to be your ballast. discountdashmerchantdotcom, the ballast aren't that expensive, they're around 60 dlls

My RCA 50'' DLP Rear Projection TV will not turn on


Hi, This could be several things as the power goes everywhere. Long distance troubleshooting so hang in there. First try a cold reboot by unplugging and replugging after 30 minutes. If nothing check P1 on the light engine for the following voltages: pin 2 5vdc, pin 3 3.3vdc, pin 9 3.3vdc, pin 12 12vdc. If any of these are not good it is the formatter board. If all are good, does the color wheel spin at all. If this is OK then check J4 on the light engine, the ballast enable line should be 0 vdc in stby, .5 vdc at turn on, and 2.5 to 3.25 vdc in run. If good, is the light engine trying to fire the lamp? If not, inspect the J4 connector and the lamp power supply, If they look OK then the lamp ballast is probably bad. This will give you something to do for now, Good Luck!

Tv wont come on


Good Day,

If you use your TV a lot then you need to replace the lamp, but if you only use your TV about 8 hour a day, then you also may need to replace the ballast.

The lamp is really easy to change. You should get at least 5,000 hours on your lamp.

Call RCA customer service and ask for a concession to replace the lamp and ballast. This is a common problem for RCA!

Good luck, God Bless.
