Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

Heard a loud

I have a RCA HD50LPW166. I was watching TV and heard a loud pop. Now I have no picture but I still have sound. Does this sound like a bulb issue? Any help would be great. Also I'm looking for a user manual for this as well.

Just had the same problem.
Unplugged the set from 110V.
Replaced the bulb, following instructions in owners manual.
Plugged the set back in and it worked 100%.
Bought the bulb from Tristate Module Inc. www.tristatemodule.com for $113- including shipping.

Sounds like it could be your power supply board. Same kind of issue i had. Try unplugging your tv completely for an hour.

You will find that the power supply has failed and is no longer supplying the VS voltage that the screen requires to produce a picture.

RCA HD50LPW164 turned on TV made a pop


the loud pop you heard was probably a capacitor blowing its top. The grinding noise is likely high voltage arching that was occuring due to rising voltage since capacitor isn't there to smooth it out.

Tv wont turn on


The loud pop was a capacitor blowing up or the high voltage transformer blew up. Very common problem.. if its the Transformer be expected to pay 250 or more to have repaired.
