RCA SCENIUM MODEL D44LPW134 IS MY BULB BLOWN?

About 2 wks ago, the color in my tv got really bad started getting greyer each day....then about a wk ago when turning the tv on, the picture never came up. It does have sound, but only makes that "warming up" sound it always makes when i initially turn it on. The picure never comes up and through the side vent where i can usually see light, there is now, no light. The TV does every few minutes, make that "warming up" sound like a fan is coming on or somthing. How do I know if the bulb is blown, I did remove it, (without touching the bulb) and there's no burned area or lose filiment when looking with the naked eye. I dont know enough to know if this is a blown bulb or not. TV is 4 yrs old and has never had a problem. Not even a blown bulb. Thank you in advance for any help. Gary

    thank you for your help. It is as you said....after it tries to warm up, the light does come on. I assumed it was the bulb, but didn't want to fork out the money without hearing another opinion if favor of the bulb being the problem.



    thanks again!

If this is a DLP, which I believe it is, your bulb is blown. Look for an indicator light on the front of the tv. After you hear the bulb try to warm up two or three times the indicator light should come on and stay on steady.
I own a 57" Mitsubishi DLP and have replaced the bulb three times now. It was the latest and greatest technology when I bought it, but knowing what I know, I dont think I would buy another DLP.
By the way, get the bulb number then check ebay, by far the best prices.

When the color wheel starts to go there is a high pitched whinning sound, the humming could be from the light engine or ballast, which may or may not be related to the color wheel. I would have to see it and test things for a correct diagnoses, but it does at least sound like a color wheel in the last moments of its life

Replaced bulb assembly in RCA DLP but screen is very dim


Sounds like your light engine is damaged. Could be cracked. You can replace it for under 100.00 which includes a new engine and color wheel as well.

If this is a DLP set, which I suspect it is....you need a new color wheel. Common problem for these sets. If you don't have an extended service plan, about a 300--400 fix, in home.

Dark picture on RCA Scenium 61 in DLP


Yes, the lamp will gradually get darker as it nears it's end. The rolling lines sounds more like the set is on a local channel for the cable hook up. If your local area has a channel 3 or 4 live terestrial broadcast simply tune the cable box output to the other one, the same for the tv.
If this is cable/local broadcast issue it will go away in Febuary when the NTSC broadcast ends.

Optoma RD50 Picture Flashing ghost images


Hello! Just a little additional info if you will on what might to expect. This is according to the repairman where my tv is still in the shop after almost 2 wks because of the need for parts: other than the lamp the only place to get other parts (ballast and color wheel) is from Optoma and if yu need the color wheel you will have to purchase the entire assembly ($999.99) because they do not sell it separately. If anyone knows differently please let me know for I am between a rock (not really) and a hard place.

Loud noise from tv


if this is a very annoying screeching or sqeualing type sound, it is, in my experience, the "color wheel" which is located inside the lite engine. this is a replaceable component whick costs about $110....i've done this repair many times with no problem....

Buzzing sound by bulb


be quite sure that it is not the fan physically touching the case; other than that, scope your B+ voltage to the ballast and be certain it is clean;  while it could be that or the lamp itself, it is most probably loose or misaligned case assembley
