    I have the same Television and the same problem. Actually the color has now changed to the pinks and blues. All red colors are now blue and blues are brown????

    My tv has been flickering the picture with a green hue. I thought that it had something to do with the lamp, replaced it, and became a little pissed once it decided to do it once more. I so wish I could sell this tv for half of what I paid for it.

Hello,the color wheel has gone bad, thats what the noise is, the bearing goes bad and it won't spin fast enough for the sensors to let the set come on. You can buy them and there's a video on youtube on how to change it....tks

My RCA Scenium HDLP50W151 TV has no picture. It


do you here a whining sound when you plug it up. when these units are first plug up there is a part called the color wheel that spins during boot process. if it doesnt reach speed then the lamp never fires. It is a motor and anything that moves evientally stops moving. it would have to be replace if you can get the part

Its the color wheel assy. Its changing speed due to worn bearings. You may also hear a hum coming from the rear of the TV. Seek an RCA authorized service center to resolve this.

Color blinkig in and out.


It seems like the color wheel might start to fail.
Do you hear any abnormal sound(s) from the TV when ramdon color appears.
Would you be able to check and make sure all the fans are working properly?

Sounds like the Color wheel on the Light engine has failed. Its a major repair. Contact Thomson at 1-866-465-7157 to find a local authorized repair center.
