Hello; I am John at J D Electronics in Poland Maine. I have had an RCA model M50WH72S setting dead in my shop for over a year now and is now mine. The set would start intermittently and run for an hour and die. Other times it would not start at all and the LED would flash 5 or 6 times and stop. With no support from Thomson/ RCA, I was on my own. The extended warranty Co said to try the light engine first. I replaced the light engine with no improvement, just the led flashing. I was not going to pay 500 to 700 dollars for other boards to try to fix this piece of JUNK.I have since read several blogs that point to power supply caps as being the problem. I took this piece of junk apart for the last time before I hauled it to the dump. I pulled out the power supply on the left as you face the back of set. I noticed 2 Electrolytic caps had " domed shaped tops ,which is a good sign of failure or overheating. They are 1000 ufd @ 35Volts 105 degree rating. They were both bad along with 2 more on the same board ! They are labeled CP624 and CP647 on the bottom edge of the board inside the "c" shaped heat sink. The other two are above the chopper transformer labeled CP641 @ CP639. replacing these fixed the set. Call DigiKey 800-344-4539 part # 493-1588 are ten for $7.00. Don't spend money on a lamp you don't need.

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

I have an rca 61" dlp tv that is about 4 years


More than likely you have a power board that is failing. Since the TV is so old I doubt it is under warranty still. I estimate it would cost you anywhere between $300-400 to repair that problem so it may be time to switch to a newer LCD TV.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

DLP TV turning on and off automatically - Mitsubishi WD-52327


1. Unit powers on and works properly for a while then shuts off with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Suspect bad lamp part # 915P020010 2. Lamp enable line at J14 pin 6 does not switch to 5 volts after turn on, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010 3. At power on the lamp turns on and off three times and then the unit shuts down with a red lamp LED (lamp error). Replace the Light Engine part # 939P977010 4. Check for 12-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 4 on the Engine Driver PCB, if missing check for an open F9A09 on the Power PCB, if it is open replace F9A09 part # 283P127060 and the Light Engine part # 939P977010 5. Lamp enable line at connector J14 pin 6 on the Engine Driver PCB switches to 5 volts after turn on but does not go back to 0-volts (low) after 5 seconds, 12 and 5 volt supplies are good. Suspect the Light Engine part # 939P977010 6. Check for 5-volts DC at J-9 connector pin 1 and 2 on the Engine Driver PCB if low or missing check C9A37 and C9A38 both 3300 UFD 10 V part # 181P732040 on the Power PCB part # 930B929001
