Assuming that the replacement lamp is good, you could be looking at a bad ballast (lamp power supply) or the switch on the lamp door itself could be causing the issue. The light engine also could cause an issue like that. I would have a technician look at it as this is beyond consumer repair.

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.

My RCA Scenium HDLP50W151 TV has no picture. It

do you here a whining sound when you plug it up. when these units are first plug up there is a part called the color wheel that spins during boot process. if it doesnt reach speed then the lamp never fires. It is a motor and anything that moves evientally stops moving. it would have to be replace if you can get the part

My RCA Scenium 50in. is not turning on!!

Its sounds as if the lamp has exploded or the color wheel has. I will post a link to a site that has a trouble shooting manual on CD called RCA DLP Disc #1 which covers every DLP in the ATC line which is what your model is. They have it either in cd form or they will email it. Its a very good resource for fixing your own set.

Sound but no picture after an explosive glass breaking sound

Some of those models have been known to have the lamp shatterd and still have sound. Check the lamp, its probably shattered.
