You need a new bulb or fuse, as yours went out. If under warranty call the warranter. The tv should have lights on it that blink if it is a bulb, my samsung does this. If there are no leds on the tv, ie the standby led is off, then its your fuse.

Its the color wheel assy. Its changing speed due to worn bearings. You may also hear a hum coming from the rear of the TV. Seek an RCA authorized service center to resolve this.

My RCA Scenium 50in. is not turning on!!

Its sounds as if the lamp has exploded or the color wheel has. I will post a link to a site that has a trouble shooting manual on CD called RCA DLP Disc #1 which covers every DLP in the ATC line which is what your model is. They have it either in cd form or they will email it. Its a very good resource for fixing your own set.
