Unplug it and allow to dry. It's important that it be unplugged so long as any wetness is present as you can cause further damage. You might use a fan to speed the drying. After the TV is dry you can reconnect to power and try it. If no luck, unplug it and give it some more time. Without the aid of alcohol and compressed air, it can take two days or more to dry the water from under some of the parts. Be patient! or call a servicer.

Good day!!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Check capacitors cp624, cp647 1000uf@35v each. They are in the power supply. Can be seen with bulge on the top. Seems to be a common problem with this model RCA.

Need color wheel


Unfortunately, the color wheel for this model has been discontinued by the manufacturer. So you would have to check every distributor to see if they have any left in stock. Part # is 271917. Here's a link so you can see this part's current NLA status and get an idea of pricing:
