    The TV was working fine. After it was off for about 30 minutes I turned it back on, the power light came on and I heard sizzling and crackling sounds coming from inside. Then the power light went out. It took about 60 seconds to be able to get the power light to come back on again and it did the same thing so I unplugged it and there it sits.

How do i find the ballast in rca dlp tv


I just had an issue with my rca hd61lpw42, I had replaced the lamp and got the same five blinks you described. I took out the ballast the smaller circuit board, its in front of the light and mounted to the front of the tv. To get to it you remove the back cover with the tv cooled down and unplugged of coarse. Be extremely careful when removing the ballast as it normally operates at about 336 volts dc. its basically no amps but it will still throw you across the living room. The being said I found another site that discussed our issue on the ballast going bad. It is not the whole board that is bad normally. There is a solder joint in the middle of the circuit board coming up off the bigger board and that solder joint normally goes bad and causes the issue. All I had to do was remove the board and resolder the connection and reinstall. But you can get them on ebay for $50. iif you have the money or no soldering experiance I would suggest that route. The site is http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p4712.m570.l1313&_nkw=%09+RCA+Ballast+Assembly+%28261629%29&_sacat=0

Now I hope I can keep the light tunnel together :-)
