I have a RCA big screen tv (model # rca m50wh72s). I accidentally dropped water on the back on the slot that says "cable card slot" on top of the mother board. Now I can't turn on the tv. The fuse is...


Unplug it and allow to dry. It's important that it be unplugged so long as any wetness is present as you can cause further damage. You might use a fan to speed the drying. After the TV is dry you can reconnect to power and try it. If no luck, unplug it and give it some more time. Without the aid of alcohol and compressed air, it can take two days or more to dry the water from under some of the parts. Be patient! or call a servicer.

Need color wheel


Unfortunately, the color wheel for this model has been discontinued by the manufacturer. So you would have to check every distributor to see if they have any left in stock. Part # is 271917. Here's a link so you can see this part's current NLA status and get an idea of pricing:
