    My set is only 14 months old and I have the same problem. Replaced the lamp and work for about 2 months and out again. Replaced with new lamp and sound comes on for only about 5 seconds, but no picture ever appears. Is there a reset button or anything on these tvs?

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.

Replace lamp on 50' rca dlp and still no working.


Before replacing the Ballast I would look at the power-supply and see if you notice any of the electrolytic capacitors tops being bubbled. It is not uncommon for the capacitors to go bad as the lamp draws more current as it ages and fails. If you do see capacity's bubbled, Replace them or have them replaced and the set will probably work fine afterwards.
Hope this helps,

Yes I should be able to help you figure it out. First look on the rear of the set to check what the chassis number is. Should be an ATC 336 but it might be a ATC323 let me know the chassis number and we can go from there on diagnosing the problem

Chances are the cooling fan for the lamp is bad, or the temp sensor for the lamp might be defective.
