Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV
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
I just replaced the lamp in rca m61wh185yx1, and the tv is doing the same thing----blink---blink----blink---flashes-steady
what-else could it be

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,
