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

1 Answer

Color problem with television

Our 61" RCA Scenium DLP television has repeated problems displaying the colors correctly. Often when you turn it on, everything that is supposed to be red is blue and there are no red tones at all. It is connected to our DISH receiver via an HDMI cable and unplugging and re-seating this cable sometimes fixes it. I don't want to buy a replacement bulb if this is not the problem. I am suspicious that it is the HDMI connection in the TV itself?

If this is a DLP set, which I suspect it is....you need a new color wheel. Common problem for these sets. If you don't have an extended service plan, about a 300--400 fix, in home.

The screen doesn't display and has no sound


I have the same problem with my 50".
My fix was to buy a new bulb from Tristate Module Inc., $113.
Installed the new bulb and the tv worked fine.
You may notice a grinding sound, this deals with the color wheel motor that needs to warm up to
work correctly. The new lamp will warm up the color wheel.

sounds like you need to replace the color wheel but most of the time that is almost as expensive as the TV itself best bet for this problem would be to bring it to a shop and have it serviced

Dark picture on RCA Scenium 61 in DLP


Yes, the lamp will gradually get darker as it nears it's end. The rolling lines sounds more like the set is on a local channel for the cable hook up. If your local area has a channel 3 or 4 live terestrial broadcast simply tune the cable box output to the other one, the same for the tv.
If this is cable/local broadcast issue it will go away in Febuary when the NTSC broadcast ends.

They make two different color wheels for the Rca DLP are you positive you got the right one. As usually its a straight forward install no adjusting needed. Post the chassis number off the back of your set and I will try to help you out with it.
