    I have had my 52' Scenium for a little less than 4 years. all of the sudden with no problems before at all, the power wont come on. it flashes on, off, on , off, on and then off. it takes me an hour or more to get it to turn on but when i do get it on it stays on until it is turned off. but these problems come if it has been on for a while. i mostly have the issue in the morning. i have checked the power cords like rca said ( like i would try to turn it unplugged or something). lol. i need to know what this problem might be, if i can fix it myself, or am i lookin at something serious that i need a pro to look at? Please help. this is getting on my nerves something awful.

My tv is about not even 3 years old, the bulb was already replaced once and now the tv will not turn on, we replaced the bulb again, but no change... The blue lights come on and flash but eventually turn off.

You are on the right track, if the lamp is not lighting bright enough it could do this exact thing, the three tries is standard on RCA products, called the 3 strikes and your out---set will try 3 times to make it on and then shut down.

The color wheel while possible usually makes a high pitched fan like sound and with lamp out you should be able to see it to know if missing parts of the wheel or shattered.

My "50" RCA Scenium won't


That's usually caused by a bad lamp. However that chassis is famous for having bad caps on the power board. The repair kit is available at the following link and has repair instructions included. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/product_info.php/pName/rca-atc336-dlp-power-board-repair-kit/cName/repair-kits

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


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.

"52" RCA Scenium DLP; No Picture and the buttons flash on and off


On the back of the TV, you'll find the Access door to your lamp. Unplug the TV from power, and remove the screw on the access panel. Inside you'll find 2 additional screws holding in the lamp housing assembly. Remove the screws, then the lamp assembly and visibly inpect it. You'll know if the lamp is defective, it will have obvious damage. If so replace with part # 260962, you can acquire this lamp for arround 100 dollars off ebay, or 262.00 direct from RCA.
