Question about Flat Panel Televisions
I have a 2006, RCA 50 inch HDTV that made a loud pop and then the screen went blank. It's flashing either a 5 code or 55. Can you help me with the part or parts needed to fix with just this code? Model #M50WH72S
The pop is most likely your lamp (light bulb) blowing, just replace the light and you will be back in business. There should be an access door in back of TV open it an dremove light bulb to retrieve part number, then go to tvrepairworld.com to order new lamp.

You need to replace your projection light bulb - the part can run from $100-350 depending on how you shop around, I would suggest ebay- as this was the cheapest route for me.
