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

1 Answer

No video, no sound, power button light on constant, front panel light flashing

My tv started stopped working the other day, there is no video or sound, the power button on the front stays lit all the time but the light that is above the other buttons on the front(sound, channel up/down) blinks very slowly on and off. It does this when I plug the power cord back into the wall. I've left the tv unplugged overnight but the issue is still the same. Pushing the buttons on the tv has no effect, I've also taken the batteries out of the remote in case that was causing some type of issue. The light stays on for about 15 secs, then off for about 15 sec, ect. I've counted how many times it cycles on and off like this, one time it did this 8 times but it seems to cycle the light 2 times every other time I've powered the tv on. I've taken the lamp out and reseated it, also the lamp looks ok as far as I can tell. When the tv is initially plugged back into the wall it does make a sound like the tv is getting power but the fan never comes on.

Thanks

Paul

    I had an RCA tech take a look at the tv, he diagnosed it as the light engine which would have cost $1300. The tv is now headed for a electronics recycler.

Hello Jeff;
If the TV does not turn on or off, does not respond to the remote
control or the control panel buttons, or has audio but no video:
1.) Press and hold the POWER button on the control panel for ten seconds. The TV will turn off.
2.) Power on the TV and the green LED will flash quickly for about one minute. The changes you made most recently, before using SYSTEM RESET, may be lost.

If the TV does not respond to the remote control or to the control-panel buttons and TV will not power on or off.
• Unplug the AC power cord for 10 seconds.
• Press and hold the POWER button on the control panel for 10
seconds to perform a system reset.

If the TV turned itself off and the light on the front panel started to flash:
• Momentary power fluctuation can cause the TV to turn off to prevent damage. Wait for the green light to stop flashing and turn the TV on again.
• If the TV does not stay on, press the POWER button on the
control panel for ten seconds to perform a System Reset. If this happens frequently, obtain an AC line power conditioner/surge protector.
• An unusual digital signal may have been received, triggering a
protection circuit. Wait for the light to stop flashing and turn TV
on.

If the TV will not power off, press the POWER button on the control panel for ten seconds to perform a System Reset.

Should you still have problems, call for assistance at 1(800) 332-2119

I would not recommend using compressed air or any other method that would blow dust around- since the dust could make its way into the set's circuitry via the grille or vents and cause problems. Use a vacuum cleaner with a brush attachment instead.

Hi, We have a 42" hslc10668phz


generally when you get a constant green light all is ok. these different lights indicate different problems within the tv. so the pattern of lights you mention suggests there is a fault of some kind (is there a troubleshooting section in your manual)? either way it needs to be looked at.

Hard to get started when powering up to watch.


definitely, something wrong with it. TV shouldn't take more then a few seconds to start, I suggest, while it still under warranty, give Sharp a call to get it fixed.

Flashing green light


Did you try this yet

SYSTEM RESET
If the TV will not respond to either the remote control
or the front panel controls and/or will not power Off,
press the SYSTEM RESET button with a pointed item
like the end point of a paperclip. The TV will turn Off
and the TIMER light will flash quickly for about one
minute. When the TIMER light stops flashing, you may
turn on the TV again. Changes you made the last time
the TV was On before you used the SYSTEM RESET
button may be lost, however, the changes you made
previously are not lost.
POWER/TIMER Indicator
The green light is a multi-function indicator. This light
will flash rapidly for about one minute each time the TV
is plugged into the wall electrical outlet, when power
is restored after a power failure, or using the SYSTEM
RESET button. Do not attempt to turn on the TV again
during this period. Wait for the flashing to stop and
the light to turn off, before attempting to turn the TV
on. While the TV is powered on, the light illuminates
steadily. If the TV has been programmed to turn on
automatically using the Timer feature,

Constantly flashing "Not available"


I have the same TV and had the same problem. It's due to a failure in the front-panel buttons, which are very sensitive. Mine got so sensitive that they were registering presses all the time, even when nothing was near them.

Since I never used the front-panel buttons, I solved the problem by opening up the TV and disconnecting the front panel from the rest of the TV electronics. This was somewhat difficult to accomplish due to the fair bit of TV disassembly I had to do to get to that connector. After I put the TV back together, the "NOT AVAILABLE" problem was solved, but somehow I had damaged something else--the tuner, composite, and S-Video inputs lost their color and now only show up black-and-white. (Luckily, I only use the component video inputs, which were unaffected.)

You need to replace the 1000uf capacitors on the DM board thats the classic symptom of the DM caps being bad the light continues to blink repeatedly. If you need more info on the repair let me know.

your fuses may have blown off.

open the back panel and check all the fuses. There are a bunch of fuses in there, my tv has 5 altogether.

I hope this is the problem.
