It can be a fault not related to lamp or lamp door, try to see if the color wheel is running.

61"RCA Scenium modle number d61w136d When turning


You are on the right track, if the lamp is not lighting bright enough it could do this exact thing, the three tries is standard on RCA products, called the 3 strikes and your out---set will try 3 times to make it on and then shut down.

The color wheel while possible usually makes a high pitched fan like sound and with lamp out you should be able to see it to know if missing parts of the wheel or shattered.

do you here a whining sound when you plug it up. when these units are first plug up there is a part called the color wheel that spins during boot process. if it doesnt reach speed then the lamp never fires. It is a motor and anything that moves evientally stops moving. it would have to be replace if you can get the part

How can i check my lamp ballast in a rca scenium 50w151 everyone tells me its my color wheel because i replaced my lamp and since then my tv wont even start up the light blinks then it stays on for a while...


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!!!

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.

I had the same problem with mine. It was overheating. I installed a small cpu cooling fan on the back of the unit. No problems since. Good luck.

RCA DLP SCENIUM HD50LPW166 NO PICTURE OR SOUND


let me know the model number of your set and I should be able to help you out with it, as the ATC dlp chassis have different things that goes wrong but I should be able to help you out as RCA DLPs are my favorite to diagnose.

RCA dlp no picture?


Most likely the lamp or possibly the ballast that powers the lamp. Please keep in mind you cannot hear a processor run. If you are hearing something it may be the normal whirring of the cooling fans. If the noise is louder that normal then the color wheel in the unit may be defective and causing your problem.
