Question about Projection Televisions
I recently replaced my dlp lamp. But the tv is still doing the same. The power light will blink then stay on for 5 seconds then blink again and go off. I checked the lamp door and make sure the light was not loose and the problem still the same. I use the troubleshoting guide and it all guide me to be the lamp. But now I purchased the light and I still can't watch tv.
There are many different problems with RCA televisions. One could be a color wheel. Another could be a bad ballast. www.Lamp-Replacement.com has a guide and solutions for your RCA lamp 265866 or 270414. The problem is most likely a bad ballast, which is supposed to pre-charge your lamp and ignite it. If you aren't even getting to that stage, you can trace the problem to another component or power supply.

Hi. Most Dlp sets have a fan for cooling the bulb this should start at switch on if it doesnt bulb will not light. Check fan is pluged in & that blades can turn freely.
