Re: RCA dlp no picture?

Most likely the lamp or possibly the ballast that powers the lamp. Please keep in mind you cannot hear a processor run. If you are hearing something it may be the normal whirring of the cooling fans. If the noise is louder that normal then the color wheel in the unit may be defective and causing your problem.

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.

suspect the optical engine as the culprit. they can gather dust contamination internally and cause a "faded or washed out pic"
