Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Start by checking the lamp door, it could be that the lamp door is not shut, open the door take the lamp out and put it back in, if still the issue is not resolved then it'll be the light engine that is causing this issue. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

I have a hd61lpw165 big screen tv that makes a loud buzzing sound as soon a it goes on with no picture.


sounds like the lamp or ballast, check the lamp first to see if good, then if good, then probably the ballast is bad, but I think the sound or buzzing is coming from the ballast, so it's should be good.

Lost picture but sound is on


almost certain this is a lamp problem, bulbs blow up
if you remove the lamp you can see if the bulb is broken inside.

RCA has discontinued the color wheel for your model and its on nationwide back order, so you cant buy the replacement. You can get your color wheel rebuilt at the following link and the rebuilt color wheels are fully guaranteed.

Usually that is an indication of a bad lamp. A lamp can be ordered and replaced yourself. Use the model number of the television to order the correct lamp.

RCA Scenium HTV won't turn on


My tv is about not even 3 years old, the bulb was already replaced once and now the tv will not turn on, we replaced the bulb again, but no change... The blue lights come on and flash but eventually turn off.

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.
