Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

RCA HD61LPW42 Hi, it seems you are very knowledgeable with this stuff. My TV had sound but no picture. I replaced the lamp, but now the picture comes and goes. A TV repairman sold me the lamp. The only difference I noticed is the my old one had a "B4" on the bulb and his has an "A3." Would this be a problem? He's telling me i may need a ballister. I hear something turning on and off, would it be the fan?

    Looks like I may have a similar issue (if not exactly the same). Yesterday the tv was fine, today we have sound but no picture.

    I can see that the lamp is fine, I get menus with excellent brightness.

    None of the video inputs show any picture.

    I've run the trouble shooting & turned off digital picture info retreival with no success.

    If the ballister is the issue, where did you purchse the part from, and what level of difficulty would you say replacing it is?

    FYI, I've pulled the original bulb housing out in the past, and replaced the bulb only - kept the original housing. So I'm quite sure the bulb is not the problem.

    Thanks for any help,

    David Lex

I thought the bulb difference was the problem, but the manufacturer said it was ok. We replaced the ballister and it is working fine. Try replacing it and that should work.

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.

Realistic Lamp Cost ??


139.00 seems reasonable for a replacement lamp. is that the only problem that you are having or are you hearing a squealing sound and then the tv cycles off?

Turning on but no picture at all


I would check to see if the lamp is actually comming on before anything else. The color wheel won't cause a loss of picture. Here is a link to purchase a suitable replacement lamp for the TV. It is 300 dollars less than the RCA version. http://www.partstore.com/Part/Thomson/RCA/HD61LPW42/Lighting+Technologies+International/LTI/260962RL/New.aspx
