Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I have a RCA HDLP61W151 TV. I am trying to determine where the loud "Fan noise is comoing from. The noise continues after the TV is turned off for about 45 seconds or so. Does noise after the TV is turned off mean it is a bad fan? Or does the color wheel also run for a short time after the TV is turned off. Is there a way to determine if it is the fan vs. the color wheel? Mike

Loud noise coming from Lamp area


The fans in these generaly do not go bad, the part nubmer for the lamp cooling fan is 265943. But my guess is that the color wheel is starting to go out of you light engine. I am not sure if these are still avalable but the part nubmer for it would be 267888. Worst case you could send your engine in for repair engine nubmer should be 265864 or order a repacement try this site. GOOD LUCK http://www.moduslinkptstvboards.com/Default.aspx

Loud noise


I believe it is the color wheel. The motor might be going bad or it has dirt or dust in it.

I hope this helps

Loud noise from tv


if this is a very annoying screeching or sqeualing type sound, it is, in my experience, the "color wheel" which is located inside the lite engine. this is a replaceable component whick costs about $110....i've done this repair many times with no problem....
