The bulb is fixin to go! Look online for a new bulb or order it from RCA. Nothing to replace yourself, screwdriver and don't mishandle.

When press power button, power light comes on, but tv does not come on

Does the weird noise sound like a whining noise? Like something is spinning? If so then your color wheel is going out.

Phillips 55" rear projection HD ready --power button lights up, but no picture or sound--just a clicking noise. Also, we can no longer adjust the blue convergence. The adjustment screen comes up, but we...

Got our tv in 2004 and we're having the exact same problem. When the blue convergence started going a couple months ago my husband researched the heck out of it and decided it would cost less to just replace the tv with a newer, nicer model rather than repair it. And now, as of last night, we are having the same power issue where the power button goes on, but won't stay on. It just clicks on and off and no sound or picture. Did you ever get yours fixed, or did you end up replacing?

Blue light remains lit but lose picture. no other indicator lights flash. if i unplug the tv it will restart but lose picture again after half hour

I have a toshiba 50hm67 tv and with mine the blue light would come on and I would hear sound first and then the picture would finally come on... this happend for about a month.... next the yellow and blue light would come on but the pic still wouldn't come on until it clicked off and on by itself for about 10 min this went on for about a week. All of a sudden last night the red lights by the power light started blinking. No tv now and when the tv shut off it said lamp not working.

ICs + resistors swapped= blue power light auto on clicking noise

Unplug the power to the convergence board. If it turns on, you still have a problem in the convergence circuit.

Toshiba 62HM195, Loud hum noise when TV is first turned on.

I have the exact TV and had the exact same problems. It is the light engine with color wheel that needs to be replaced, and they are VERY hard to come by for this model. Our repairman has had our TV for 5 months and still cannot locate a vendor that carries the part. He said according to Toshiba, the part has been discontinued. If you happen to find one, please post. I'll do the same.

Lost Picture on High Def TV

I changed the inputs into another port - ie. instead of being in video 1 it's in video 4 now... I don't have as good a picture but it does come on; I'm wondering if my system took some kind of volt or fluctuation and damaged th eone set of inputs?

Will wait and see what happens next.
