Question about RCA Scenium M50WH187 50" HDTV
My tv is not turning on. When I turn the tv on the blue lights on the front flash and you can hear the sound on the tv off and on but you can't see the picture. I went out of town for four days and when I came back my tv was not turning on. We did have a storm while I was gone so I don't know if that's why the tv isn't working but I had it off while I was gone. When I turn it on I can hear that the Tv is trying to turn on but it can't. I looked and the lamp and the capacitors and those looked fine so i don't know what else it could be. Is there something i can do myself because I'm pretty handy and I don't have the money to pay someone to do this.
I have a 50" Scenium RCA Hdtv with DLP. I had just turned on the tv, when there was a loud explosive sound of glass and the picture disappeared but I still have sound. Now there is still sound but no picture just black screen. What do I do???
Toss it out

The sound of glass breaking was just that. The color wheel has broken, hence no picture.
You will need to replace the color wheel.
Here are a couple of places to start your search.

Its sounds as if the lamp has exploded or the color wheel has. I will post a link to a site that has a trouble shooting manual on CD called RCA DLP Disc #1 which covers every DLP in the ATC line which is what your model is. They have it either in cd form or they will email it. Its a very good resource for fixing your own set.

No, this is the color wheel. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4160054-replace_color_wheel_in_dlp_projection_tv which explains in detail how to change the color wheel and where to get the parts.
Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating.
