Question about RCA Scenium HD65W20 65" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

No picture and loud screeching on RCA Scenium 50" DLP

When I turn on my TV the blue light on the switch glows. After a few seconds you can here something make a slight whir and then it starts a loud screech. The switch button then starts to blink and goes off, after a few seconds more the whole routine starts again. Is this a color wheel problem and if so how difficult is it to get to the color wheel?

    I have been told that the part can be purchased separately and I also asked how easy it is to replace. The part does show availability at the partstore.com. I also asked: Do I need to take the screen off and how difficult is that?

It sounds like it is the Color Wheel. I do not think you can get the Color Wheel separate from the Optical Engine like you can with Samsung. RCA is very tight with there parts like that. Because you have to get the whole
Engine Assy, cost would be too much in my opinion to invest into it. The part cost approx 800.00 the last time I checked on one.
Good Luck,
I Hope this helped,

    Once you get the back off, The Engine Assy. is removable from the rear. It is not overly difficult, just a little time consuming. DO NOT turn any of the adjustment screws. The Engine is attached to a bracket and that bracket w/enigine is removed. Once that is done access to the Engine Block is clear and free.

    Good Luck if you choose to tackle it.

I have an rca 61" dlp tv that is about 4 years


More than likely you have a power board that is failing. Since the TV is so old I doubt it is under warranty still. I estimate it would cost you anywhere between $300-400 to repair that problem so it may be time to switch to a newer LCD TV.

What is the Model Number that is printed on back of TV?
You say TV is DLP ,but you are posting Model# HD52W59 that is for Projection that has 3 Tubes Red/Green/Blue Tubes.
If TV is DLP then problem will be the Color Wheel
If it is Projection then it has a coil on the deflection board that either needs to be replaced or
resolder ciol and take a Glue gun and glue over the top of coil. Coil LL037 on the right handside of the FBT flyback transfomer.

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.
