Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV
I think I have a problem with my ballast, I just got a replacement lamp for my rca hdtv replaced it, but still no picture (but there is sound), sounds like the lamp is struggling to power up. The power indicator light blinks five times, stops and repeats over and over again, it then blinked continuously for about a minute. Does this sound like a ballast problem? or is there some special lamp replacement procedure that i didn't do? What exactly is the function of the ballast and what are the common issues when one needs to be replaced. Any solution would help so much. Thank you!
Replaced lamp on 52' samsung tv and still no audio or visual.

I would check all the electrolytic caps in the P/S. The ballast is trying to ignite the lamp but needs a better kick in the _ _ _. You'll probably have to use an ESR checker... Let me know how you do?
