high pitched squealing noise >> im thinking is the color wheel which will also give you the yellow color, don't know if that would also cause your screen to blank.

SOURCE: RCA R52WM24 52 in. HDTV convergence IC location

the rca itc222 chasis uses no stk the convergence is controled with transistors... the convergence amp board is located above the main signal board(green board)... it can be identified as the one with several heat sink fins on it. FL231 is related to convergence.. there has been a problem with this fuse when it blows the processor doesnt know it is a projection set so it turns it into a regular tube tv. Here at the shop we have found number one reason this fuse blows is poor solder connection on the flyback. So replace the fuse and reflow the solder connection on the flyback and around that area also the horizontal transistor and then see if that doesnt fix the problem.. if you have an more trouble ..... willie@fordtv.com

SOURCE: RCA D52W20 52 Fuse problem

Well you could always use a bigger fuse but I would not advise to do it, it could and most likely will blow tv not fuse. Fuses ussually blow from a short or power surge. If it is new or under warranty I would return it for replacement or repair.

Hello I have a RCA HDTV m50wh74xy1 problem is I keep having to replace the lamp,each time I replace it (lamp) it might last for 3 months I would like to no what is causing the lamp to blow out


This could be difficult to find but most likely a grounding/shorting issue. I would start by checking the power supply and the leads coming off of that.

The screen is black and the bulb is't blowed


If your model number is HD50LPW175 and the power light is blinking 5 times thats telling you the lamp needs replacement before the set can power up. You can get the replacement Lamp assembly with installation instructions from www.tvrepairworld.com

Toshiba 52hm95 lamp breaks after only weeks of use


It is as far as the set is concerned, it sees the lamp not on.

Most likely cause would be the lamp ballast that drives the lamp.

Does any offer a longer lasting bulb I replace it once a year from Mitsubishi


HI:
The normal usage time for lamps are 6500 hours, thats a little under three years depending on the use of the television, These lamps last longer when they are not turned off and on all the time. The constant heating and cooling prematurely wears out the lamp, also on Mitsubishi lamps have a filter on their lamps that geta cloged with dust from the exaust fan, causing heat to become traped in the lamp compartment which will cause the lamp to blow premautrely, using a compressor try cleaning this filter every 6 months or so for longer llamp life.

Sony grand wega kdf 60wf655 will not start up. red light blinks three times. lamp replaced a year ago.


If the POWER/STANDBY indicator flashes three times, the lamp cover may not be attached securely. Review the lamp-changing instructions in your owner's manual, and make sure that the lamp cover is securely attached.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

Samsung HLN617W 61 i


it is not related to the failure of the fan or color wheel by anything other then the age of the set..the lamp has a normal life of 4000 to 6000 hours and since your set is around 3.5 years old it probably has that amount of time on it..the lamp is consumer replaceable and many places sell them..the lamp number should be on a small sticker on the side of the set

No picture


Sounds like it could be the entire light engine.  The part is available on the Internet, but it runs $700 - $1200 without the lamp (although it sounds like you could use your existing lamp without a problem). These parts, however, are notoriously hard to find and may be backordered for months.

May not be worth the cost, but that's up to you.

Lamp problem or not?


2 years and three months but, what counts are the hours that it was on. Your software only really effects the way the TV interacts with HDMI inputs and really won't effect much else. The manufactures only expect 4-5000 hours on the lamp. Some go less some go more. You need to replace that lamp most likely.
