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.

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.

Picture and sound gone


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.

Won't power, light goes green 5-10 seconds later red flashing light is basically what's its doing. at 1st i'd power down the tv for a min and then it comes back up with no red flashing going on.


keep pressing the channel up/down button and the screen will come on it may take a few minutes dont use the switch on the side of tv just use the remote buttons u could try the power button on the remote aswell
