Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

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

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

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,

RCA Model M50WH187 DLP TV - lamp cuts out


The lamp ballast supplies power for the lamp, and it is probably going out. You can probably find one on eBay or ShopJimmy for under $100. It looks like a little box and it will be near the lamp.

Replaced lamp and still doesn't light up Tv


tanyapetti2,
Did you replaced the cover for the lamp? If not, the TV will not power on. When the cover is replaced, it closes the switch and allows the set to power on.

I have a rca 50 dlp hdtv and i replace the blub but the ligh isn't coming on does this tv has fuse


I assume you replaced the lamp since it had gone out. If the previous lamp looked ok, I would hang on to it as it may be ok. If it blown, then it can be recycled. You likely have a defective ballast board which supplies voltage to ignite the lamp. This may have failed on its own or could have been damaged if the original lamp blew out. There are other possibilities also, but that is the most likely. You also would want to try re-seating the lamp and be certain the lamp door is fully closed.

Replaced lamp still not working


Power issues (Tv True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung True True (``````````` (``````````` 0 95250 95250 clip_image002.gif is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
