Question about RCA HD61LPW163 61" Rear Projecection HDTV

1 Answer

No picture and no sound

I was watching a DVD and the TV seemed to go in protection mode, I checked the bulb and it was cracked, I ordered a new one and replaced it but I still have no picture or sound, the volume and channel buttons are on all the time, did the power supply go as well?

Check the bulb ballast board. It's the board that the wires from the bulb connect to. That is most likely causing the Sounds like the main board is the culprit for most of the problem. The picture problem can be the color wheel not turning. The lenses in front of the bulb should be taken out and cleaned too.

I have the WS-48311 and the TV screen is blank. The sound works and on DVD mode I can see the picture. I assume that the TV bulb is out not sure what to do or if its worth repairing.

The problem of your tv is not the bulb because like you said when in dvd mode you see a picture. try to check first all the input and output connection at the back of your tv specially the digital receiver if you are using one. this kind of trouble sometimes caused by a weak or loosed connection. feel free to send feed back good day and best regards.

Nothing happening

It certainly sounds like something which would be repairable. It would also seem from what you have said that the unit is still under warranty and should be repaired for free by the manufacturer. Check with the place you purchased it or the manufacturer. Good luck.
