Question about Televison & Video

Open Question

I have a RCA Scenium DLP 50" TV. I have replaced my lamp twice over the 5 years of ownership. In the past when the lamp went out, I heard the lamp "break" and the screen went dark. The problem I have now is that suddenly the screen is different. It has a darker spot in the lower center that occupies about 60% of the screen and it is brighter in the corners and at the top. Is it possible that something is blocking the path of my light beam?

My "50" RCA Scenium won't


That's usually caused by a bad lamp. However that chassis is famous for having bad caps on the power board. The repair kit is available at the following link and has repair instructions included. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/product_info.php/pName/rca-atc336-dlp-power-board-repair-kit/cName/repair-kits

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.

RCA Model M50WH187 DLP TV - lamp cuts out


The lamp ballast supplies power for the lamp, and it is probably going out. You can probably find one on eBay or ShopJimmy for under $100. It looks like a little box and it will be near the lamp.

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


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.
