My DLP, RCA HDTV needs to have the "light engine" replaced. What's involved in accomplishing this task? Also, will the light engine come with a new "bulb" too?

    This set is not under warranty. It is 3 plus years old.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I would like to have a Service Manual I can read before attempting to tear it apart. Thanks for this first reply.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I too have a paper copy, the original version of user manual.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I guess I must not be too smart in finding the manual. Did you bring it up? I could not find it!

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I just this evening replaced the DLP bulb assembly (that cost me $200), I also found the assembly for the engine for $630. That is in shipment to me. It is important to repair this set & get it going.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    My problem is, I don't know where to look, nor do I know what it looks like. Before the replacement unit gets here I wanted to study & read about it. The TV is working with its mirror problem, and I want to repair that too.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    No - just a verbal (word) description of it.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    Could not find my part replacement on eBay!

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    The light module was like a "4 inch square" unit, with the bulb pointing to the left side, kind of into a "tunnel".

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    So! How about some written directions to accomplish this?

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I did contact them, and I was told that a service tech trained by RCA needs to install. I don't believe that, but I do want to see pictures and some words how to do it. I don't want to screw up an item I paid $600 for...

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I attempted to do that at another dealership. They actually had it up on their PC sccreen, and I asked them to print it, and was given a negative response. They tried to sell me a new TV.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    If I must "bribe" somebody to get pictures & words, why not actually have a trained tech come & install it? What happened to my "Experts" repair from your company?

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I don't understand your last comment. Unless "who" might have this manual? And how will they send info to me?

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I could not find his e-mail address. Why don't you guys e-mail him for me?

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    And I paid $10 to be sent off to another resource?

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I understand. I must leave now for work. I'll check back in tomorrow morning. Thanks, I'll be looking for more info.

  • Dick Stubblebine Jan 19, 2008

    I'm still in need of written directions and/or pictures which will show me how to replace the mirror engine assembly in my RCA DLP HDTV. Is there one available?

The picture is not bright in a light-filled room. Will a change of DLP lamp help? Are there different lamps that will improve picture quality?


Yes.Depend how old is ur DLP tv,the Projection Lamp only a light source,mostly depended on the Light projection Engine itself.Get the original RCA DLP lamp or same lamp model now inside the tv,will help and work best for ur tv.Just don't get generic DLP tvs lamp,it cheaper poorer quality.

DLP RCA HDTV is displaying bars from top to bottom of screen, with green tint. Is this the light engine going bad?


Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. This issue can happen due to a faulty light engine or due to a a faulty DLP Lamp. However, it can be an issue with the video driver card of your Card. I'll suggest to use a DVD player and check if the tint is still there. If the tint disappears then its an issue with the video driver card.
However, if it doesn't correct the issue its either a DLP Lamp or a faulty light engine.
Note-- Please make sure to turn off and unplug the TV for at least 1 hour (this will drain off current from all components especially capacitors) before you perform any repairs. Also note that the TV consists of very high voltages even when it is in OFF condition.

Before performing any repairs i'll suggest you to try and reset the TV by unplugging it for 8-10 hours.

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

sounds like the DM3 isnt powering up the ballast to light the lamp or the ballast may be faulty. i would suggest trouble shooting the DM and ballast voltages.

No picture


Assuming that the replacement lamp is good, you could be looking at a bad ballast (lamp power supply) or the switch on the lamp door itself could be causing the issue. The light engine also could cause an issue like that. I would have a technician look at it as this is beyond consumer repair.

Light engine issue I would say, is it somewhat transparrent? if totally black might be something else but more than likely will be a light path issue inside the light engine.
