    Thats a fairly exspensive part Richard. The site I work for as a repair tech sells them new for 269.95 . I am not sure if you can find a used one that would be good. Let me know if I can assist you further.

How do i find the ballast in rca dlp tv


I just had an issue with my rca hd61lpw42, I had replaced the lamp and got the same five blinks you described. I took out the ballast the smaller circuit board, its in front of the light and mounted to the front of the tv. To get to it you remove the back cover with the tv cooled down and unplugged of coarse. Be extremely careful when removing the ballast as it normally operates at about 336 volts dc. its basically no amps but it will still throw you across the living room. The being said I found another site that discussed our issue on the ballast going bad. It is not the whole board that is bad normally. There is a solder joint in the middle of the circuit board coming up off the bigger board and that solder joint normally goes bad and causes the issue. All I had to do was remove the board and resolder the connection and reinstall. But you can get them on ebay for $50. iif you have the money or no soldering experiance I would suggest that route. The site is http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trksid=p4712.m570.l1313&_nkw=%09+RCA+Ballast+Assembly+%28261629%29&_sacat=0

Now I hope I can keep the light tunnel together :-)

Hi,If your tv is around 1-2 yrs and haven't replaced the lamp it might be time to replace it.But if you hear clicking or continually trying to restart it could be your ballast ,which is the board that powers the lamp.The lamp you will need is the 270414 Found the lam pyou need here: http://www.discount-merchant.com/RCA-HD50LPW164-Original-OEM-Lamp-P-N-265866-p/rca-hd50lpw164-265866.htm?Click=48173 Good luck and God bless you!

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.

Samsung DLP TV won't turn on


This sounds to me like one of two possibilities. First, check your ballast. If you're going through bulbs faster than you think you ought to be, you may have a ballast that is overloading. Its the 3" x 8" circuit board that connects directly to the bulb. They are plentiful and often cheap. Thats what I'd try first. If that doesnt' do it, I would invest in a new power supply board. That the board that the tv power cable hooks directly in to. This should give you a start, Comment back if you still need further help. Good luck.

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!

61 ballast


You can get the ballast RCa part number 269043 at this link for 269.95. You have to leave an email stating what you want as they dont list all parts that they have at the warehouse, But I know they carry that ballast and they give free installation instructions with any part they sell. They will respond quickly with the info you need.
