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

1 Answer

HDLP61W151 turns on then off front power switch blinks. I had replaced the color wheel because of the load noise. It powers up, the menu or picture show briefly then it powers off and the power switch blinks. It will then cycle like this 2 more times, then shut off completely. At startup the color wheel spins, the philips bulb comes on and both fans turn on. Any thoughts? I've searched thru many forums but have been unable to find a complete description of this problem. Thanks

    I have call RCA about the problem, and the power light blinks 3 times (not 5 times as would be for the bulb), they told me that the problem code indicates, too high or too of voltage. Would that be a transformer perhaps?



    Thanks

I would check the capacitors in the power supply. When they dry out, the leakage draws down power supply voltages. Hope it works.

High pitched or even fan like noise usually means the Color wheel which are hard to find/expensive for this set.

When you shut set off noise should wind down as the wheel which turns at over 10,000 rpm slows down.

Hello

If the power light blinks slowly,

you've tried to turn on the TV during

the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait

approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.

If light blinks, pauses for about a

minute, and blinks again: the lamp is

trying to turn on (TV will turn on

when successful). If TV doesn't turn

on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.

To order lamp call 1-800-338-0376.

Have your TV serial number

and lamp type available (you'll

find this information on the

sticker that's on the right side of
the TV).
OK.

We own a Samsung DLP-TV. Last night it started shutting itself off. WE changed the lamp, but it is still shutting itself off after a minute. First, the picture goes off black, then the entire TV shuts off....


Do you still have your old lamp? try to see if it still works.. i think the problem could be something with your Ballast or maybe the color wheel.

Does your TV makes a strange sound? if it does maybe one of those 2 ballast or color wheel.

LETS TRY THIS....... MAYBE IT WILL WORK.

the Door lamp switch could be faulty, you've got to check it need to close fine with out the switch to go down

here is a picture that i found it looks like this!

Blue light on power button keeps blinking and I don't have a picture. Is the bulb toast or do I need to replace the color wheel AGAIN?


Sounds like a bad bulb, but you may need to have a technician come out and confirm for you that it is not something more.
