Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV
I just replaced the lamp for this TV - as the symptoms indicate as stated in the user manual - but, when I plug it in, all the lights on the front panel flash five times then remain on for a while, then repeats the 5 flashes and remain on again, and repeats the cycle. I don't hear any whines (light engine) or "whoomps" (ballast), as I read about in other blogs. ( I have checked the lamp panel door switch, and it's working OK)
Do you have any suggestions? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
