Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

I have a 61" RCA DLP TV - (HD61LPW42). The noise that it would typically make upon turning it on (maybe the lamp cool down motor) use to go away after a few minutes. It is now staying on. A very loud buzz or humming. Very loud, almost louder than the volume of the TV. I have tried a different bulb (an old bulb that I would use to make do while replacing a new bulb should the time come). The noise is still there. Does this sound like I will have to replace the cool down assembly? If so, can you give me an idea on the replacement cost?

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. A loud buzz or whine like sound comes from the color wheel, when the color wheel is bad it should be replaced as it cannot be repaired. If you do it yourself then you can buy the parts from this link. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

My rca hd61lpw42 is having trouble. there is the loud whirring noise, and the whites on the show i was watching distorted and then the screen turned off. is the issue with the color wheel or the lamp?


it sounds like the lamp or fan. do you feel airflow? Unplug the set and wait. When you plug it up is the whinning imedate. the color wheel generally is the first thing to come on. If it dosent reach speed it will shut down

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.
