Question about RCA D44LPW134 44" HDTV

1 Answer

Blinking power button

The television is three years old and I have replaced the bulb three times already so when it wouldn't turn on I figured it was just that again. I checked the bulb though and it is fine. Usually, when it is the bulb the power button blinks three times but this time it is blinking ten times before shutting off. Other then throwing the television out the window do you have any solutions?

    I have the same problem. I have replaced the bulb 3 times as well and this time it did not fix it. I took out the ballast circuit board and had that fixed (tristatemodule.com) for <$100 but that did not fix it either. The next thing to try would be the ENTIRE light engine and then the main board or the power supply... do you see where this ends up going when you are dealing with RCA (Really Crappy Appliance!) DLP's! I have done A LOT of research on these RCA DLP's and I think throwing it out the window is the only way to go! I am going to part mine out if anyone wants to try and fix theirs. I'm at markschu@hotmail.com. Now I will continue my search for a NEW LCD flat-panel. My advice to anyone in the market for a new TV. DO NOT buy DLP! It is a money pit!

Blinking power light is usually due to bad capacitors on the power supply. See the tip for RCA atc336 under my profile that can apply to your set as well.

The lamp light is blinking once every 5 seconds. The manual says that " Lamp will not light or light is abnormal"


HI,

Panasonic PT50LC13 lamp indicator blinks to tell you the lamp is faulty.

You need to replace the bulb or TY-LA1000 lamp assembly. This link displays all Panasonic TV Lamps and TV Bulbs. This page shows Panasonic lamp location and How to Replace TYLA1000 bulb. TY-LA1000 Bulb Replacement requires the use of a long Philips Screwdriver to reach screws within the lamp cage.

Unplug AC power before removing the lamp and re-install all doors, etc, correctly before starting the TV. Vacuum any visible dust or lint from air vents and lamp area. Do not used forced air to blow out dust, big problems may result.

The user's manual has a description of what the Blinking LED indicators mean.

Hi there,
5 blinks means there is a problem with the video board. It could be as simple as unplugging everything, includding power. Wait 3 minutes then plug power only back in. Or it may be a damaged component that requires replacing.
Hope this helps

Hi,
If red light blinks 3 times when tv refuse to power up then check lamp cover that was removed to replace lamp, make sure lamp cover is fixed in its position securely and screw is tight.
Let me know how many times red light is blinking after three second long pause IF it is not blinking 3 times.
Thanks.
