I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. Yesterday it made a pop sound then sizzling and the picture went out. I unplugged it, the plugged back in. No picture. Looked to see if lamp burned out but small green light is on inside. The front lights blink on and off orange. No message calme up to replace the lamp like in the past. Any suggestions?

    So you are saying I have to take it to a technician to have it tested. I have had a hard time in the past finding someone to look at this TV, it doesn't seem to be a known brand. Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Sandy

Hi ryser,
Pop sound is coming from the parts either on the ballast board(lamp's driver) or power supply(ballast board supply). It means that you're bulb is not the issue that's why you've not encountered the led lamp indicator. Check the ballast board for faulty electrolytic capacitor, blown fuse/fusible resistor, shorted ballast transformer. Also check the power supply parts like bulged electrolytic capacitor, shorted voltage regulator transistor. If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for an experienced technician to troubleshoot the problem.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

    You may check the ballast board first, look for bulged capacitor and open fuse/fusible resistor if you found one, replaced with same ratings. Let me know what you've discover...

I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. The TV keeps turning off and on. The color and sound is fine. I have replaced the lamp and this has not fixed the problem.


If its a DLP it may have a color wheel which could be your problem (the colors will change etc)

Color wheels move at high speed and if slow down set will shut down.

The wheel if there will face the lamp. If often if failing will make a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

Projection tv not working


I guess loud sizzling was from High Voltage Splitter in your TV. HV seems cracked and leaking high voltage.

You can observe and confirm it by removing back cover and power up TV from distance and check at rear of TV. Please take care and there should be little dark to observe arc from HV splitter.

If this is the case, HV splitter available in Part Store.
