Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

1 Answer

My RCA Scenium 50in. is not turning on!!

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??? My Tv Will not turn on, Blue light flashes you hear a click and it goes of.

    My RCA Scenium HDTV is not turning on either. I guess this model has a defect. Ever since I bought this tv is been giving us problems. At times it would freeze and turn off by itself....sometimes it would turn back on and the volume would be at full blast! when it turns off...it takes a long time for the picture to get back on....and the very last time this happened...the speaker had a bad static echo....From now on...I am not trusting RCA! What could this be related to?

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.

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.

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.

do you see thin curved blue lines going from bottomto top of screen. If so its most likley a blue CRT drive board issue. If its a solid blue it could be a small signal board issue.

I have an RCA Scenium HDTV DLP, Model HDLP50W151. Turned it on and went through it cycle, whining sound but the screen was gray. turned it off and then on again...no picture and there was no whining sound....


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.
