Question about RCA M50WH185 Television

1 Answer

I have an RCA DLP HDTV model #m50wh185. Almost everything i read says that if you loose picture but can still hear and change the stations that it must be a bad bulb. I replaced the bulb but the same problem exists. It sounds like the ballast clinks in the back when it turns on but no picture at all? Any suggestions as to what it could be?

    Do you have any idea where to go online to purchase a defection board for an RCA?

  • tminer05 Oct 07, 2009

    Very prompt! I hope it works! Now I just need to figure out what a deflection board is and get a part number.

    Do you have any idea what a deflection board is categorized as? Is it electrical or what? Is there another name for it? I am trying to find the website for PTS electronics right now to see if i can find one. Thanks for you help!

Your flyback on your deflection board is the problem, rca has a notorious problem with these, some will kill the audio also,just replace the whole deflection board

Rca hdtv dlp screen flashing


Sounds like it could be the power supply. Try changing the brightness of the screen and changing picture modes like movie or standard. If this causes the flashing to change in severity, it will most likely be the power supply board

The picture is not bright in a light-filled room. Will a change of DLP lamp help? Are there different lamps that will improve picture quality?


Yes.Depend how old is ur DLP tv,the Projection Lamp only a light source,mostly depended on the Light projection Engine itself.Get the original RCA DLP lamp or same lamp model now inside the tv,will help and work best for ur tv.Just don't get generic DLP tvs lamp,it cheaper poorer quality.

62" RCA dlp loses color


If you hear any winding, whirling or screeching noise (Color Wheel symptoms)
If there is any vibrations in the TV (Color Wheel symptoms) you would need to change the color wheel.

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.
