2 years is normal, I`ve seen some fail in 12-15 months, fans run when cabinet interior is hot, they are controlled by temp sensors located inside the set, video-tek

White flashes on screen , then temporary black screen.


I would try the lamp first,if it has never been replaced they only last for up to 5,000-8,000 hours.

Need info on fan for RCA HD50LPW42 TV


Thats a DLP and those fans are noisy. Most of those fans are special and I don't think I can recommend a dealer but you can Google Electronic Parts and pick one. They will need the Model Numbers as well as the Chassis number. There is no guarentee it will be any quiter for very long. You might check with some local TV shops and see if any of them have a good used one. DLP's go bad all the time and many times it's the light engine and the fans are realitively new.

RCA DLP/HDTV Vertical Lines


This is djb1 who commented above on the vertical lines that have gotten progessively worse. I may have found a potential solution. I unplugged the TV, took the back door off where you replace the lamp, took the lamp out, changed our vacuum from a vacuum to a powerful blower and blew ALL visable dust off anywhere that I could. I paid special attention to the heavy dust that was on the TV blower fan blades and around the mirror. I also held the blower on the outside of the TV on the vents around the lamp door.

After I plugged the TV back in, the lines have disappeared. We watched TV last night for about 2 more hours and the vertical lines never came back. So far this morning, the lines have not come back and it has been a couple hours as well.

It's worth a try. The free solution may be as simple as clearing out all dust. LET'S HOPE IT'S A PERMANENT SOLUTION!!
