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.

I have a sony KP5375 TV and the screen flashed and went dark. Now it won't turn on and there is a electrical smell coming from the TV. Reset doesn't work. Does this sound like it is more th


yes bulbs dont smell unless they pop plus its 3 bulbs in there, plus the tv would still have power/standby lights, and it's not that type of smell, replace the bulb but im sure this will not fix the problem, also my experience with dlp set it is often not worth repair, good luck you need more help or question just ask good luck

Keeps turning off


FIRST all projection TV's have bulbs.
Some have filters either on the bulb cage or on the outside of tv or both. When the bulb gets too hot it will protect itself by shutting off - clean and make sure they have good airflow.

Unless your D/s buddy has infared power not heard of - it's probably not him.

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.

Sound but no picture on my HD-52725 (slightly over 1 yr old). The TV menu DOES come up but other than that, it's just a blank screen. I replaced the lamp about 3 weeks ago. It was working fine yesterday...


The new bulb that went bad I purchased for less than $130.00 from http://www.Discount-Merchant.com/ . When I called them they immediatly sent me a new bulb free. Their number is 1-619-710-2637. A very good coumpany to do business with. They are also considering selling ballast for dlp TV's for around $200.00. The TV repair place that I have been going to told me that maybe the ballast made the bulb go out and it would cost between $600.00 and 800.00 to have them fix it. My TV is a Mitsubishi WD52725. dodger1
