That would be the color wheel as if it was the fan it would have stopped by now. So yes check the color wheel by all means, let me know what you find, please do click the accept button for my efforts, thanks

    first of all not easy and not really to exact I would council you if your going to do this job yourself is to get a service manual. they run around $20-30 bucks this will help you exactly take out the color wheel for replacement. Step by step over email is to complex.

this might be a noisy color wheel . this is a motorized wheel that produces the color in the set. it could be something else because of your statement of picture is ok. if it the color wheel the set will eventally shut down. this part used to be avalible and fairly easy to replace. it has got harder to locate. The other possibilites includes a small leaky capacitor in the powers supply but that is more like a whine. a tech would have to take the back off and locate the noise.. i believe this unit might have 2 fans and a color wheel. three moving motors.. anything that moves eventally dosnt

My rca hd61lpw42 is having trouble. there is the loud whirring noise, and the whites on the show i was watching distorted and then the screen turned off. is the issue with the color wheel or the lamp?

yes ... you could have a color wheel problem.. this set get color from a spinning wheel called a color wheel.. when you unplug this and plug this back in you should hear a whining motor sound. During the "bootup" sequence this motor spins this wheel to test to see if it reaches speed. This is a motor that moves and anything that moves eventally dos not. i see this problem often in the shop and if it is the problem there not all that difficult repair. the hardest part is finding the color wheel

Cant find convergence on menu screen


The HD61LPW42 is a RCA DLP which doesnt have convergence. If the convergence is out of alignment you have a three CRT TV such as the D52W19, HD52W59 RCA Check the model number from the rear tag and let me know what the model number is.

RCA HD61LPW42 - no picture


I haven't worked on an RCA DLP but have on Samsung DLP, based on your description it sounds like the color wheel is bad. Take the back off and turn on TV make sure its not a fan making the noise ,but most likely its the "wheel" it is inside the light engine probably right next to where the lamp is plugged in. If the whine comes from this area definitely the wheel.

RCA DLP TV needs color wheel replaced


I used the internet and found others who had the same problem. Two individuals had a brief description on how to replace the color wheel in a DLP TV. Three small torque screws and a ribbon connector was all that was need for removal; once the access panel on the back was opened. I would guess that this process is the same for all DLP TV's, with some small variations!

The color wheel can make a whinning sound for sure, However it should not continue to whine after shutting it off. That sounds more like the fan used to cool the lamp, as that will continue to run after the set is shut off. How soon does the whinning start when you push power? Let me know I should be able to help you out. DLPs are my specialty
