When it turns off, what is the status of the LED at the front? Does it blink or stay on? If it blinks then how many times does it blink in between each pause? Please provide this info so that we can continue with the diagnosis.

    This does not sound like a power supply issue at all, coz the fan is running. Have you checked the status of the lamp to see if its shattered or has a burnt filament?

    Sai.

  • eagle338
    eagle338 Jan 02, 2011

    Yes that is a possibility. If the bulb looks ok, then check the status of the filament inside. If even that looks ok then we will check the output voltage from the ballast. So let me know whats the status of the filament.

    I have replied to that post . Please see my last response.

    Just as I suspected. From what you describe, it sounds like the filament is burnt. Can you take a good, high res image of the filament and upload it on imageshack.us , and then get me the direct link?

  • eagle338
    eagle338 Jan 02, 2011

    Yes thats a confirmed case of blown bulb. You should replace it with an original lamp from the manufacturer because
    1)It comes with a 1yr warranty
    2) Cheap bulbs not only die sooner but can also damage the ballast, by putting excessive load on the same.

    You obviousl;y are gonna need the remote. Try powering it p once you get it.

  • eagle338
    eagle338 Jan 06, 2011

    I am sorry. I would be lying if I say I know the code, so we are just gonna have to deal with it using the original remote

  • eagle338

    Yes good luck with the repair.

RCA TV picture bigger than screen


if the tv width is ok try entering to service menu (do not use remote control) as follow:
1) turn the set on.
2) press the menu button and hold it down while pressing the power button.
3) while holding down the menu button release the power button and press
the volume + button.

TV will not start up with new lamp


Here's my question you replace just the bulb and not the balanced if so there are three wires that go to your fan check them and see if they're brittle if they are you can change the wires I went up to a bigger wire can't get too big the center wire I believe is the one that makes the TV come on the other two wires are what controls the fan I read if you take a nine vote battery across the terminal of the fan Connector battery will only set one way to make the fan come on so If it doesn't come one try it the other way this may or may not help good luck if they're brittle replace them you'll be surprised

If the picture comes on a its blue the lamp is ok. If you dont't get a menu then you really have a problem. A technician can bring up test patterns on this set that can tell you what the problem is.

I hope you are still under warranty. This is usually a problem with the main DLP chip seating properly on the board. I have rarely been able to correct this without getting a new engine board and DMD (digital mirror device).
