Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

1 Answer

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

When we try to power up our 50'' RCA DLP TV the blue lights on the bottom right corner of the TV flash and then go off and the TV does not fire up.

I ordered and changed the bulb and TV will still not start up.
I checked the power supply by bringing up a 42'' RCA DLP TV from our basement and it works perfectly.

I am not sure what to do now.

    My 50" dlp at first would shut itself off then back on while watching it,and sometime i would be sound asleep and then BAM.. it would be up and running on its own and then i would have to get up and turn it off. then one night kicked back watching it and it went off, but when it went to come back on it lit up on the controls flashed five times and repeats. Thats all.

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!

What is the Model Number that is printed on back of TV?
You say TV is DLP ,but you are posting Model# HD52W59 that is for Projection that has 3 Tubes Red/Green/Blue Tubes.
If TV is DLP then problem will be the Color Wheel
If it is Projection then it has a coil on the deflection board that either needs to be replaced or
resolder ciol and take a Glue gun and glue over the top of coil. Coil LL037 on the right handside of the FBT flyback transfomer.

That is a mirrior adjustment problem, it is pretty complex to fix yourself and you can really mess up the T.V. if you don't know what you are doing. I suggest a T.V. repair man that specializes in DLP TV's.

Sounds like it could be the entire light engine.  The part is available on the Internet, but it runs $700 - $1200 without the lamp (although it sounds like you could use your existing lamp without a problem). These parts, however, are notoriously hard to find and may be backordered for months.

May not be worth the cost, but that's up to you.
