Its the color wheel assy. Its changing speed due to worn bearings. You may also hear a hum coming from the rear of the TV. Seek an RCA authorized service center to resolve this.

Replaced bulb assembly in RCA DLP but screen is very dim


Sounds like your light engine is damaged. Could be cracked. You can replace it for under 100.00 which includes a new engine and color wheel as well.

I have a RCA Scenium HDTV DLP that has a whinning sound and no picture. Could this be the bulb?


No, this is the color wheel. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4160054-replace_color_wheel_in_dlp_projection_tv which explains in detail how to change the color wheel and where to get the parts.

No picture and loud screeching on RCA Scenium 50" DLP


It sounds like it is the Color Wheel. I do not think you can get the Color Wheel separate from the Optical Engine like you can with Samsung. RCA is very tight with there parts like that. Because you have to get the whole
Engine Assy, cost would be too much in my opinion to invest into it. The part cost approx 800.00 the last time I checked on one.
Good Luck,
I Hope this helped,

Dark picture on RCA Scenium 61 in DLP


Yes, the lamp will gradually get darker as it nears it's end. The rolling lines sounds more like the set is on a local channel for the cable hook up. If your local area has a channel 3 or 4 live terestrial broadcast simply tune the cable box output to the other one, the same for the tv.
If this is cable/local broadcast issue it will go away in Febuary when the NTSC broadcast ends.

Rca scenium 44 in. HDTV with DLP


You need a new bulb or fuse, as yours went out. If under warranty call the warranter. The tv should have lights on it that blink if it is a bulb, my samsung does this. If there are no leds on the tv, ie the standby led is off, then its your fuse.
