RCA Scenium HDLP50W151

Turn on tv, no sound or picture a few seconds later it begins to hum as if it is attempting to start up only humming is louder than usual. The blue light begins to flash and the tv will try to start again, but will not.

This is a terrible thing to tell you, but, what you describe is called dijitizing then the light engine failed Now it gets real bad ,,, This part 261589 is about $590.00 and is on factory backorder with no ETA in site.
