Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

On my RCA HD61LPW42 TV. I heard a short buzzing sound then a loud pop. I'm sure the pop was the bulb cracking (I checked) but I don't know what the buzzing was. I replaced the bulb about 18 months ago and the previous owner replaced the color wheel and had that triangle shadow problem fixed. Any way to check the color wheel to see if that's the problem? Thanks

The buzzing sound you hear is the spark gap on the ballast circuit. It's what fires the lamp at startup. Perfectly normal.

Replacing bulb in hd61lpw42 rca. Question: I have replaced the bulb before but this time the glass covering the mirror is broken. I suppose the additional heat of the bulb cracked it. My wife said the...


lbcofer,

Just make sure that you purchase the entire module, not just the lamp. Also make sure that any glass is removed from the set. I have a tip at

http://www.fixya.com/support/r4168009-change_lamp_in_dlp_projection_tv

which explains the process and where to get the best quality lamps at the best price. Do not use after market lamps or cheap lamps as they will explode as yours did and do not last as long as OEM lamps. In some cases they will not even be compatable with the equipment. The old adage about you get what you pay for, is definitely true in this case.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

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.

Sounds like it could be your power supply board. Same kind of issue i had. Try unplugging your tv completely for an hour.

Black screen


Sounds like the bulb again. In the manual it says that the power light flashes to let you know that the bulb is bad. When I got a replacement bulb, I noticed that the wiring on it was opposite of the one on my set and had to change the wiring to match my set.
