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.

If you hear a squeeling noise, then that would be your color wheel. When you replaced the lamp, did you reset the lamp hours? Did you check the power from ballast with a voltmeter to see if you are getting power to the lamp?

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.

No picture on my samsung 61" dlp.


The color wheel if bad enough, will cause the lamp not to light. If the lamp is truly bad, you can't usually tell by just looking at it unless of course it is broken.

Samsung hln617w non power up


Most of the time when these sets won't turn off it's caused by the DMD but check the color wheel connectors first, especially the flat ribbon cable. Make sure it's in the connector in the correct direction, only has contacts on one side and make sure the ribbon is not torn.
