"52" RCA Scenium DLP; No Picture and the buttons flash on and off

I push power on the remote or touch the power button on the TV in which the buttons flash on and off. The buttons flash on the TV for 5 seconds then they stay on. It looks like the TV is in standby mode. NEED HELP

Re: "52" RCA Scenium DLP; No Picture and the buttons...

On the back of the TV, you'll find the Access door to your lamp. Unplug the TV from power, and remove the screw on the access panel. Inside you'll find 2 additional screws holding in the lamp housing assembly. Remove the screws, then the lamp assembly and visibly inpect it. You'll know if the lamp is defective, it will have obvious damage. If so replace with part # 260962, you can acquire this lamp for arround 100 dollars off ebay, or 262.00 direct from RCA.
