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?

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.

Problem with Toshiba DLP Projection TV Model #52HM84

It is possible the lamps may be defective or that they may be the wrong replacement for this model, as it may have a different wattage setup with the ballast. If you want to try to order the TB25 lamp from a different vendor, you can order the original Toshiba replacement lamp for this model (52HM84) from a major Toshiba parts distributor at the link below:
