SOURCE: RCA HD61LPW42 - no picture

I haven't worked on an RCA DLP but have on Samsung DLP, based on your description it sounds like the color wheel is bad. Take the back off and turn on TV make sure its not a fan making the noise ,but most likely its the "wheel" it is inside the light engine probably right next to where the lamp is plugged in. If the whine comes from this area definitely the wheel.

lbcofer,

Just make sure that you purchase the entire module, not just the lamp. Also make sure that any glass is removed from the set. I have a tip at

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4168009-change_lamp_in_dlp_projection_tv

which explains the process and where to get the best quality lamps at the best price. Do not use after market lamps or cheap lamps as they will explode as yours did and do not last as long as OEM lamps. In some cases they will not even be compatable with the equipment. The old adage about you get what you pay for, is definitely true in this case.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

My rca hd61lpw42 is having trouble. there is the loud whirring noise, and the whites on the show i was watching distorted and then the screen turned off. is the issue with the color wheel or the lamp?


it sounds like the lamp or fan. do you feel airflow? Unplug the set and wait. When you plug it up is the whinning imedate. the color wheel generally is the first thing to come on. If it dosent reach speed it will shut down

Turning on but no picture at all


I would check to see if the lamp is actually comming on before anything else. The color wheel won't cause a loss of picture. Here is a link to purchase a suitable replacement lamp for the TV. It is 300 dollars less than the RCA version. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Thomson/RCA/HD61LPW42/Lighting+Technologies+International/LTI/260962RL/New.aspx

Intermittent picture


Most likely your lamp needs to be replaced as that will cause the intr. picture issue. The color wheel will also have to be replaced. The color wheel is only available with the light engine which is part# 263223 and the lamp part #260962
