Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

The exact same problem

I have a DLP that is exactly the same model with the exact same problem. I replaced the bulb a 1 1/2 years ago and it worked like a dream. A few months ago the dark left corner started small and has grown to over half way down on the side to a 1/5 of the way across the top.

I can only think the Optical Block is causing the problem. There would be no other thing to block the light except something within the Optical Block itself.

Takes to long to come on


Maybe a ballast problem. DLP are famous for bad lamps and housing. You must make sure the lamp is a good and exact model replacement. Generic ones that are so called guaranteed to be exact replaments are often not and need to be sent back. And google for ballast replacement and find out how others are handling it.

SAMSUNG DLP SLIM 50" AFTER I TURN IT OFF IT WONT TURN BACK ON TILL 30 TO 50 MINS LATER THE THREE LIGHTS IN THE FRONT BLINK. iT ACTS LIKE ITS GONA TURN ON BUT IT DOESNT IT JUST MAKES THE NOISE AND FLASHING...


Chris,

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

Samsung Dlp completely shuts off and then all three lights flash


Sounds more like the TV is overheating. The lamp cooling fan may be seized or not spinning fast enough. If the TV gets hot enough to trip the thermal, it could rupture the lamp.

Replacement color wheel for samsung 50'


I am having the exact same issue with the exact same TV. They no longer make that color wheel, so I am looking for a replacement part as well.

I am looking at the 01103A as well from here:
http://www.partstore.com/Part/Samsung/Samsung/BP9601103A/New.aspx?ModelMfgName=Samsung&ModelBrandName=Samsung&ModelNumber=HLR5078W

I think I might just order it, and if it doesn't work just return it.

3 blinking lights - Samsung DLP


Remove your new bulb and examine the connector carefully. The inexpensive replacement bulbs tend to arc and ruin your $700 ballast; sad to say. If everything looks good, make sure the interlock switch on the bulb cover opening is engaging. It won't fire up if it thinks that door is open.

I have a viore monitor ipt46dl30 which just went black but we can still hear the voice.. help?


I'm in the process of ordering a replacement bulb for a friends set right now. The information below is exactly what's needed to get the correct bulb for this DLP television.

TV Make: Viore

TV Model: IPT46DL30 (Confirmed to be on TV label)

Bulb/Lamp Model: SHP70 (This number is right at the top of the bulb/lamp, where the wires connect)

Housing Model: 140-1027 (This is also known as the Ballast which houses the bulb/lamp)

Now, I've managed to locate the bulb/lamp from a few different sites. Unfortunately, there doesn't appear to be a reputable manufacturer making aftermarket bulbs for this DLP model. The original bulb type is all we have to look forward to. The cheapest price that I've found so far is $120.00. I have also found these particular bulbs for as high as $295.00. Needless to say, I'm going with the former.

http://www.replacementlightbulbs.com/lampshp70.html - $120.00 (Buying)

http://purelandsupply.com/140-1027-Bulb-Akai-DLP-TV-Lamps.html - $277.90 (Too much)

http://www.encompassparts.com/products/?140-1027 - $295.00 (Too much & very skeptical)
