RCA Model M50WH187 DLP TV - lamp cuts out

I have a RCA Model M50WH187 DLP TV - My problem is: The lamp / picture function is inconsistant (sometime the picture will come on for hours, other times it doesn't come on at all). The sound is always present. It seems as though there's a switch of some type that is not making the proper contact / connection. I have replaced the lamp, it made the picture brighter (the old lamp as ~ 4 years old), but it didn't help with the inconsistant operation of the picture / video function. When the picture does come on it works fine until it cuts out. Any ideas?

The lamp ballast supplies power for the lamp, and it is probably going out. You can probably find one on eBay or ShopJimmy for under $100. It looks like a little box and it will be near the lamp.

SOURCE: no picture

Sounds like it could be the entire light engine.  The part is available on the Internet, but it runs $700 - $1200 without the lamp (although it sounds like you could use your existing lamp without a problem). These parts, however, are notoriously hard to find and may be backordered for months.

May not be worth the cost, but that's up to you.

SOURCE: rca hd52w59 making a high pitch buzzing sound

is this just a whine since you describe no problem with the picture it dosent jump or change color or flicker. there may be an easy fix this sounds like some coils oscillating and i tell you what can be done you can take some silcon and put on these coils to dampen then vibrations. now ther may be other problems but without looking this is my first gues ...where are these coils? ll037 on the power supply deflection board

SOURCE: no picture good sound good lamp can change channel

I have the exact same TV and have had the exact same problem. I talked to a TV repairman who said it has to be my deflection board. I just found this out today so I am looking all over the web for a deflection board. I hope this helps! Tyson

SOURCE: samsung dlp acts as though the lamp is gone. Put

It may be the ballast or aother problem. First, unplug your TV for about 5 minutes, plug back in. LISTEN very carfully when you turn the TV on. (put ear on the left hand side of TV towards the back) if you hear a clicking sound. It may be your light engine. BUT most important what lights on front panel are blinking.

Hope this was helpful, Big Irish.

The picture is not bright in a light-filled room. Will a change of DLP lamp help? Are there different lamps that will improve picture quality?


Yes.Depend how old is ur DLP tv,the Projection Lamp only a light source,mostly depended on the Light projection Engine itself.Get the original RCA DLP lamp or same lamp model now inside the tv,will help and work best for ur tv.Just don't get generic DLP tvs lamp,it cheaper poorer quality.
