If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

Bad Caps on the AC IN board? I would visually inspect the caps on the AC IN board for any sign of swelling or doming on top. They should be perfectly flat.

I have an rca 61" dlp tv that is about 4 years


More than likely you have a power board that is failing. Since the TV is so old I doubt it is under warranty still. I estimate it would cost you anywhere between $300-400 to repair that problem so it may be time to switch to a newer LCD TV.

RCA DLP Model # M50WH74S Problem: Replaced blown lamp, when plugging it into AC, blue LED lights up right away for 2 or 3 seconds, then shuts off. Waited for a few seconds, and relay will click on and...


The blue led dies because the power source dies: it detects a big short on one of its outputs and shuts down to protect itself automatically. Since apparently it's a very big short and you just had to replace the bulb then the faulty part is the ballast board (the one that powers the bulb): when the bulb failed it has generated a power surge that fried it.
Replace the ballast and verify the power source board: if you're really unlucky when the ballast got fried it has in turn damaged the power board.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.
