Question about Televison & Video

Looking for a ballast for an RCA HDTV model is hd50lpw62ayx2 (50 in). Replaced the lamp itself and am getting a squealing noise and the picture goes on and off. The squealing continues for about 90 seconds after the tv is shut off.

Hi I have a HD56W66 When turned on it has green light for about 5sec. and goes off with a squeal. sometimes the set comes on and stays. any answer? Tom


THe "Squeal" that you have mentioned is caused by a faulty ballast board(lamp driver). Its the board to which the two thick wires go from the lamp. Replacing the part would resolve your problem

The tv picture goes out


Sounds like the ballast has gone out. Samsung recommends replacing the smps board(power supply board) when you replace the ballast because it is the smps that takes out the ballast. replacing just the ballast ,machine may work ok for a short time but will destroy the new ballast fairly quickly.

How can i check my lamp ballast in a rca scenium 50w151 everyone tells me its my color wheel because i replaced my lamp and since then my tv wont even start up the light blinks then it stays on for a while...


are you sure when you replaced the lamp you seated it correctly, no really hapens all the time so dont feel bad. also another common error is the lanp door is not seated or closed and locked properly that is the most common problem that happens after a lamp is replaced, or the new lamp is bad never throw out your old one as somr dealers will give you what they call a core refund , they reuse the case around the old lamp. some can be worth as much as 50 to 60 bucks!!!

Replace lamp on 50' rca dlp and still no working.


Before replacing the Ballast I would look at the power-supply and see if you notice any of the electrolytic capacitors tops being bubbled. It is not uncommon for the capacitors to go bad as the lamp draws more current as it ages and fails. If you do see capacity's bubbled, Replace them or have them replaced and the set will probably work fine afterwards.
Hope this helps,

sounds like the DM3 isnt powering up the ballast to light the lamp or the ballast may be faulty. i would suggest trouble shooting the DM and ballast voltages.

No picture or sound after replacing lamp


Possible bad color wheel...

Pull the lamp out & look inside where the lamp sends the light-

does the color wheel look defective? If so,replace it.

Or, the lamp ballast may be bad.After that,usually replace

complete engine.
