Question about RCA P61960 61" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Tv tuns itself off, maybe needs bulb?

I am not sure, but I think the bulb went out. The tv would turn itself off and then back on. Now it won't turn back on.

    I have the same model - RCA P61960 61 in. Rear Projection TV -- It will come on, play through the previews ... or about 10 minutes -- then just shut off. Later it will turn back on when prompted, play for a few moments and then just completely shuts off. Is there a special "emergency off" trigger that could be getting set for some reason? Please help!! aeparksmo@yahoo.com Thanks! Autumn Parks

Samsung HLR5667wx/xaa. Power surge took out tv. Replaced bulb and the bulb works, but tv wont come on and lamp light is flashing.


Hello, it sounds like the color wheel may have failed. Was there any noises, like a high pitch sound before it went out? If the color wheel isn't turning at proper speed, the set won't start up by shutting down the lamp protection circuit.

Maybe the fan is going out. Since you said bulb change I assume your tv is a projection tv. If so I think those tv's have fans to help keep it cool. If the fan is not working properly or failing, the tv may be shutting itself off so further damage does not occur. Check the fan. What is the model number of your tv?

Samsung 50" DLP TV turns itself off


I had the same problem which also included the picture having streaks of red in it sometimes too. I found that both problems were due to the TV getting too hot inside. I bought a $7 small 4" fan from Walmart and pointed it at the back "door" of the TV (where the bulb can be replaced). Both problems have disappeared which I think is due to not letting the interior get too hot.

Not sure if there is an internal fan to cool the parts inside, but if there is it is not working well enough.

Smells like it is hot or something is burning after changing bulb


Your tv is actually an Air eater. The tv itself needs a complete river of air (it looks as an exageretion) not really. I create this picture in your mind to help you to imagine all care you tv needs.

  1. Turn off the set. allow 20 minutes to cool down the set
  2. move the tv to the front and get access to the back of the tv then with a vacuum cleaner gets all dust out around the set
  3. make sure the air filter (refer to the manual) is clean.
  4. try to make sure the places were the air flows into the tv are clean and free of obstructions (back cover).
  5. finally all you can do outside the tv is done. Then when the tv is back its position make sure it "breathes" confortable. You tv has 3 fans inside (there is not a casualty)
The fresh air that goes into the system gets finally out really hot and smelly but as soon as the air flows thats normal for this tv. this is noticiable specially in hot seasons.
