Question about RCA HD50LPW42 50" Rear Projection HDTV
I turn the power button on. The fron green light stays solid for about 5 seconds then starts flashing. At the same time I can hear the color wheel try to spin up, but then it stops and the green light flashes some more and goes off all together. Any suggestions?
Bad capacitors see the tips under my profile for the ATC336 chassis the same info will apply to your set. If you need more info please let me know.

I had the same problem. Turns out that my color wheel motor went dead. Unfortunately RCA stopped making the part. The good news is that I purchased the replacement plan for the TV, so I ended up buying a Samsung. Best thing I did was the replacement plan!
In addition to the color wheel, the bulb went out twice. Warranty paid for 100% of it. Good thing, the bulbs were $400 a pop.
