Question about RCA Scenium HDLP61W151 61 in. HD-Ready Television

1 Answer

HDLP61W151YX2 Aperture I corrected the dark corner issue this was having by taking the aperture mirrors off the color wheel assembly and rebuilding them to rectangular. Now the screen is approximately 1.5 inches up from the bottom of the screen, where to I need to adjust to correct this? I would be glad to detail the steps that I took to perform this action, as this appears to be a common problem... Thanks in advance.

    The sentence that reads:

    "Now the screen is approximately 1.5 inches up from the bottom of the screen, where to I need to adjust to correct this?"

    Should read:

    "Now the picture is approximately 1.5 inches up from the bottom of the screen, what do I need to adjust to correct this?"

    Sorry for the grammer, should have proofread that better. Anybody gonna help me with this?

    Which smaller mirror are your referring to? The actual gun into the screen or the mirror assembly next to the color wheel or something completely different?

    Thanks for the reply.

There should be some adjustments on the smaller mirror to offset any misalignments on the screen itself. It may use a allen wrench possibly. sometimes a phillips screwdriver also. Let me know if this helped you . Thank you Jay.

You probhably have the wrong color wheel. There are several different ones and its imparitive that you replace it with the correct one. If you search here theres someone else that had the same issue and when they put thier old noisy color wheel back in the problem went away.

If you are seeing spots appear in the picture then it is possible that your DMD board is begining to fail. This is the board with the million little mirrors and is not a part that consumers should replace or try to clean.

I would check for dust particles before I attempted any type of repair on the unit.

Dust particles will appear as dark spots that are larger than the size of an individual pixel. It must first be determined if the particle(s) are on the LCD panels or the screen.

Dark blotches / Dirty behind screen

it could be dust in the mirror or in the optics,in this set if im not mistaken you have acces to the mirror from the back, anywhere from 12-20 screws it sould be easy to remove plastic cover first and the the mirror.this mirror are very delicate you dont want to leave fingr prints on it it will show just like the dust is showing right know. taking the mirror off will also give acces to the lense.
use someting soft to clean it.
