Question about RCA HD50LPW175 50" HDTV

1 Answer

No Picture I have 2 of these TVs and have chanded the lamps so I know I do not have a lamp problem because when I swap the lamps out the one that works still works and the one that does not will not come on. When I first turn the TV on the power light and volume and channel lights come on and I get sound but within a few seconds the lights start flashing and go on and off a few times and finally shuts completely off

    The lights flash 5 times and I get sound for just a few seconds. It does this several times. Then the lights go out and do not come back on. I never get a picure. When the power light flashes I hear a click as if it is trying to come on but never does.

My Mitsubishi tv WD 73734 won't show a picture you can hear sound and it powers on and off lamp light red and timer lighter blinking

No TVs will behave that way due to a timer. TVs only will display a nag screen telling you to reset the timer. If your lamp is more than 2 years old, it is suspect of failure. Be sure you buy a lamp with an Osram brand or Philips brand bulb inside. Any compatible(knockoff)lamps will not perform as they should. Mitsubishi DLP TV Bulbs
These folks sell original Osram bulbs in their lamps and they have a 6 month warranty. I use them myself for repairs and really have had great experiences with them.

Change lamp on TV model WD52525 reset does not work

follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

Rear-Projection TVs have a lamp, which picks up the picture and projects it on the TV screen. A burned-out or connected lamps are two of the most common problems for Rear-Projection TVs. First, you will want to confirm the bulb is still good. If the bulb is bad then then replace it immediately. Second consult your user manual and verify the lamp and lamp cover are installed properly. Most Rear-Projection TVs have warning light which notify you when there are lamp problems. Again consult the user's manual to see what each light means.

Tv will turn on and after 10 seconds will turn off, after replacing lamp.

Have you did a lamp reset after lamp replacement? If not, this might happen. If you wish to know more about the lamp reset procedure to projection TVs, check this site.

HI Clay,Is the green lamp light on fully ie is not flashing.?

There is no reset for overheat, if the problem is like blocked vents when it is rectified the only reset is power on/off and the fatal red or flashing orange error condition should go away

I have seen a simualr model that had the lamp cover open not showing an error but stopping it from working, but I dont think it was the exact same model but worth checking the cover is on properly

How many hours has the lamp done, do you have two of these machines?

If you do please swap lamps between the two again because this sounds like a lamp issue although we should be getting the error code unless the counter has been reset without changing the bulb for new..are you 100% sure your not using 2 dodgy bulbs and thats our issue, because Im suspect on these lamps unless of cause you can swap one into another and see it light, if that is the case then its has to be lamp contacts or a board fault but i need to know more exactly the deal with "known good lamp" and exact lights

Ensure we are fitting the lamp correctly and the contacts for the lamp are clean and fitting tight.Please ensure we have checked the silly things like lens cover, signal is being sent and pc aint asleep etc

It is 2.30 am in Oz, I'm off to bed but let me know some more info if you can and I have a dig deeper at work tommorrow for you and see if i can come up with some solution because all i can see it being now in my sleepy state is bulb, bulb contacts, lamp cover, mis reading lights, silly stuff or a board fault....

Cheers below is your user manual and the error light table

How do you change out the lamp for a AKAI projector TV?

this is very common problem among rearprojection tvs. youll need a technician to come take out the lamp and replace it. its too dangerous to do it yourself. if ur tv just shutoff and didnt turn onn again the best thing to do is relpace the tv because its not worth replacing the lamp because its too costly and it might happen again. they dont really make these tvs no more so its pricy
