The thermostat is mounted over the lamp assembly and can become intermittent. It should measure shorted ( 0 ohms) normally and open if too hot. The 2 black wires go to the TOC connector where you can check proper operation. I have fixed HD61LPW42 DLP TV with no display by replacing.... just short it
out temporarily to see if circuit board will enable ballast circuit.

Gas dryer runs for 30 mins then shuts off.


This is a common problem that is not a good one. But the motor is goin bad. If you try to start it you will hear like a hum then start. Motor is going bad and over heating and shutting down on overload. Sorry. Hope this helps.

HD50lpw42 rear projection tv. Once tv is on for a while it shuts off. Suspected fan problems, I placed a floor fan behinde tv, a few min later tv comes back on. Could it just be the fan or could it be...


Make sure your filter screens are kept clear.
Protect Components from Overheating
• Don’t block ventilation holes on any of the components. Arrange the components so that air can circulate freely.
• Don’t stack components.
• If you place components in a stand, make sure you allow adequate ventilation.
• If you connect an audio receiver or amplifier, place it on the top shelf so the heated air from it won’t flow around
other components.
Hope this helps!. Otherwise in your owners manual, under troubleshooting it states:
TV turns off while playing
• Sleep Timer, Wake-up Timer, or Watch feature may have been activated. Go to page 45 or 69 for instructions.
• Electronic protection circuit may have been activated because of a power surge. Wait 30 seconds and then turn on again. If this
happens frequently, the voltage in your house may be abnormally high or low.
• The sleep timer may be set.
• Unplug. Wait five minutes. Plug in again.
Hope this help you out.

Need info on fan for RCA HD50LPW42 TV


Thats a DLP and those fans are noisy. Most of those fans are special and I don't think I can recommend a dealer but you can Google Electronic Parts and pick one. They will need the Model Numbers as well as the Chassis number. There is no guarentee it will be any quiter for very long. You might check with some local TV shops and see if any of them have a good used one. DLP's go bad all the time and many times it's the light engine and the fans are realitively new.
