Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

1 Answer

Dead lamp? My TV stopped working and would blink 5 times, then pause, blink 5 times again and nothing would happen. This is supposedly the lamp, but I have changed the lamp twice and still nothing is happening. What else could be the culprit? Is there something that could go wrong when changing the lamp, that I may have overlooked? Everything fits snug and the screws are secure. help? thanks

Make sure the lamp door is back on properly as there is a lamp door safety switch that will cause the same problem. If the door is on properly then you either have a bad lamp ballast pwr sppy. bad or the light engine is defective. My experience is that there is very hight rate of failure with the light engine in this model. This repair is in excess of 700.00 and I'm not sure I would invest that much in this unit.

I don't know if any errors with red blinks for the 2844, but the printer will blink red five times if you power it up with the button held. Is the button possibly stuck down?

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...


3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

You need to replace the "Lamp" check Google Shopping for pricing. Enter your TV model # and add the word "Lamp" Make sure you get a Phillips or Panasonic lamp don't get a Chinese knockoff. They don't last!. Hopr this helps.

Hi,
Symptom shows Lamp is weak in result and causing restart of TV again and again. Your TV requires new lamp as per following part number...
A1085447A* LAMP BLOCK ASSY XL-2200U
It is available in Sony Accessories Store for $200 and replacement procedure is written in instruction manual of TV.

Always buy Sony original lamp for TV and avoid aftermarket / cheap lamp for TV safety.

i have the same t.v. the owners manual says "if the light blinks 5 times, pauses, and blinks again 5 times, the lamp is trying to turn on.If the t.v. does'nt turn on after 5 minutes and the light blinks steadily for 1 minute , one of the following is possible: lamp door is open , lamp is dead , or the power supply within the t.v. needs service.
