If the red indicator light on the front of your HDTV is glowing a solid red, you should first unplug the AC cord from the wall power outlet and wait for 60 seconds before reapplying power to the HDTV.

After you turn the TV on, if it doesn't power up, try holding the power button down for at least 8 seconds. That's supposed to force a system reset. If your model has a system reset button, use that instead. Press the reset button for about 20 seconds...release it and press it again for 20 seconds, release it again and the led will blink just for a minute or two. You should now be able to turn the TV on.
If after several attempts, the HDTV has not fully powered on and the LED on the front of the HDTV is still glowing solid red, you may want to reseat the lamp.

If reseating the lamp has not resolved the issue then your next step is to order a replacement lamp. Keep in mind that some off-brand lamps may only last a few weeks, so replacing a relatively new off-brand lamp may unfortunately be necessary.

The tv is plugged in but it won't come on. I've taken off the back and there doesn't appear to be anything wrong but it's still not coming on by remote or manually pressing the power button. What should I...

  • Replace the lamp on the TV and make sure the cover is on -
  • Step 1Turn off and unplug the RCA TV and wait at least 30 minutes for the old lamp to cool down. RCA's lamps can reach heats of 200 degrees Fahrenheit, so make sure you wait the allotted time before beginning.
  • Step 2Find the lamp's access door in the lower-right corner of the back of your RCA TV.
  • Step 3Unscrew the screw on the access door with a flathead screwdriver, then grasp the two tabs and pull the door gently away from the remainder of the TV. Keep track of the screw and don't let it roll away.
  • Step 4Use the screwdriver to loosen the two screws holding the lamp itself in position. You don't need to remove the screws, just loosen them.
  • Step 5Pull the lamp out of its housing firmly, taking care not to force it or damage the surrounding housing. Note the position of the lamp in the housing as you do so; the new lamp needs to match it perfectly.
  • Step 6Insert the replacement lamp into the housing, taking care to place it in the same position as the old lamp. Tighten the two screws on its frame to secure it into position.
  • Step 7Replace the access door and tighten the screw into position. The RCA TV won't turn on unless the door is secured.
  • Step 8Plug the TV in and turn it on. Wait 60 seconds, then tune to a channel to see if you can receive a signal.
  • Step 9Place the used lamp in the box which contained the new lamp, seal it and contact your local sanitation department for instructions on disposing of it safely. (Some RCA lamps hold small amounts of mercury, so you can't just throw them away. )

    The tv picture goes out

    Sounds like the ballast has gone out. Samsung recommends replacing the smps board(power supply board) when you replace the ballast because it is the smps that takes out the ballast. replacing just the ballast ,machine may work ok for a short time but will destroy the new ballast fairly quickly.

    My panasonic LCD TV's lamp light is flcikering.

    Sounds like the lamp. Turn the TV off, unplug the TV from wall, wait for half hour. Remove the lamp and see, if it is fogy looking, this will give you an idea if the lamp is going bad.

    Good luck

    Having in mind that a generic lamp will give you 4500 to 6500 lamp hours and the Phillips will give you 6000 to 8000 lamp hours and that you TV is 4 years old more likely you are looking to replace you lamp;The lamp itself typically uses AC current and about 15,000 volts to ignite the lamp's mercury vapor gas. The gases inside the lamp react when electricity charges up the mercury gas creating very bright light. The voltage drops to keep the flow of electricity to the lamp.
    If you can hear your TV fan working is NOT you power supply,but if you hear a constant clicking you BALLAST needs to be replace,
    A ballast is an electrical component used with a fluorescent bulb (or mercury vapor lamp or arc lamp) to conduct electricity at each end of the tube. It supplies the initial electricity to the bulb that creates light, and then it regulates the amount of electricity flowing through the bulb so that it emits the right amount of light.
