Question about RCA HD61LPW165 61" Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times

My rca m61wh74s turns on with great pic and sound,, then within a min or two the picture shuts off but the sound stays on and my power light flashes 4 times then steady on then four times again and repeats. I replaced the bulb 8 months ago when it popped very loudly and clearly was blown showing the same power light sequence. Could A bulb be bad and still light up brightly for a short time? I dont hear any unusual noises coming from inside.

I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

This is very possibly a power surge, can you tell me how many times the light blinks, you probably have a bad power board now if you had a power surge.

Hello, I have a RCA 61" M61WH74S rear projection


I am not sure which fan you are putting back as there are a couple. I am attaching 2 pics that show the fan locations. You may want to get the service manual for your model which shows the dissassembly proceedures. You can get it on page 2 of the service manual catagory from www.tvrepairworld.com by download within minutes of ordering service manuals are indispensable when serviceing a Television.
