Question about RCA D44LPW134 44" HDTV

1 Answer

Television does not work

I am having problems again with my RCA D44LPW134YX1. When I turn on the tv I have no picture and there is a humming and/or clicking (slight). I have replaced the ballast and it still does the same. I don't think it's the color wheel as I heard the screeching of that before and it doesn't do it right now. From information if acquired on other sites, I'm thinking I might have to replace the entire light engine next? Could someone PLEASE offer some advice as I am watching a 1983 Zenith 27in (even though the picture is still very good) and I want my RCA back! Even though I HATE the piece of S...!!!!

    Hello Slinteriors. Thanks for the response. I was afraid it was the light engine. I can get the part for 395.00 replaced but I was wondering about the signal board. What does this part do and would this need replacing also?

Definately sounds like the light engine. that is an expensive part about 800.00 wish I could be more positive but I believe thats what you'll find needs replacing

    The signal board would be suspect if you were having scrambled picture with alot of "snow" video problems and things of that nature. There has been quite a few problems with the light engines needing replacement. Thats a good price for a new light engine. Let me know if you need any additional info.

My RCA projection tv makes a loud buzzing, humming noise. Does as soon as turned on even before picture comes on, does not stop till tv is turned off.


buzzing noise is cause by small electrical arc inside the unit or a problem in your audio circuit.if you can open the unit up and check if its an electrical arc.

Loud noise from tv


if this is a very annoying screeching or sqeualing type sound, it is, in my experience, the "color wheel" which is located inside the lite engine. this is a replaceable component whick costs about $110....i've done this repair many times with no problem....
