Question about RCA HDLP50W151 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Rca HD50LPW62YX1 50 in. DLP TV

I brought this TV in Feb. 2006 and it was fine all up until now. The TV will come on and then cut off while the sound is going on still on. It will light up and make a zapping noise from what looks like a fuse panel. I took the TV apart to get a better look at this piece and it looks like it's connected to the light area. I don't think it's the bulb because the lamp will come back on after 45 seconds. I read some problems saying it could be the color wheel, video board, light engine, and even the bulb needs replacement. Please any solutions before I hire a tech?

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.
