(No longer listed on Amazon.) The most likely reason for no display is not matching the scan rates. Your TV is either 1080i (1920x1080x30) HxVxrate or 720p (1280x720x60) high definition. That's its native display but it may accept both but not 1080p. The computer must be set to one of those. The TV will not accommodate, well it may accept 480i or 480p (720x480x30 or 60) for standard definition and that could be 640x480. Go to your computer display controls and see which resolutions are available and it may be different in mirrored versus extended mode. If the signal comes from a TV DVI source and is converted to HDMI, it will not include sound. There may also be a problem with copy protection (HDCP) as your computer may be fussier than the TV. -Ken

The Lamp it self, the Ballast, or the Power Supply that powers the Ballast. Even a combination of the Lamp and Power Supply is a common problem. If you have not replaced the Lamp since you have owned the set I would replace that first. The Lamp has about a 3000 to 5000 hour life span.
Hope this helps,

HI. this is a failing light engine. This part has been discontinued at this time.

I would prepare to buy another set soon.

RCA Scenium... | Answered on Jul 05, 2009

HI, ok, This repair will be very expensive. The Light engine is damaged at this point and, it will, eventually, fail soon. This inevitable failure of the engine will render this unit useless. The actual part price is enormous. it will cost 2,956.00 to replace this part. That is the actual part price. the labor is extra.

I would cut my loss and, purchase a new set in this case. the repair is not worth it in my opinion.

1. Do you smoke? (if so, this is why)
2. How old is the lamp? (over 2yrs, this is why)
3. dust, construction, stored in garage?( if yes, this is why)

DLP is basically LCD. LCD doesn't dim so this is not likely (but possible). Normally is is caused 1,2 or 3 above. After that you can try looking at the area where the lamp goes in. If you notice dust on the glass thing inside the TV (not on the lamp itself) you can try cleaning it off. USE DISTILLED WATER ONLY NOT CLEANERS. This mirror inside the TV behind the screen could be fairly dirty but honestly if this is dirty you have bigger problems so this is probably not a cause.

Gotta try the lamp first; the symptoms all describe a bad lamp.

this happened to me with my RCA Sceium 52 inch floor model, for 2 years before I figured out it was
over heating. Of course I had no money to fix problem. What I did is simply put a cool fan on back
or AC. Even rolling in front of a sliding glass door when its cool out will work well. Cold air on back
will stop it from turning off.

Good luck

Is the picture distorted or pixilated in any way?
Are you seeing any black or white bars on the screen?
Dose the picture display false color or dark spots?

If you are experiencing any of the above issues, this will point to a malfunctioning light engine and you will need to replace it.

RCA Scenium... | Answered on Apr 30, 2009

It's not the lamp. It maybe dirt or dust or even a bug. The picture that is projected starts out 1/2 inch by 1 inch in size. Somewhere along the path to the screen a piece of dust gets in and after it's projected it looks like a blob on the screen. The closer it is to the DLP chip itself the bigger it looks. If this is the case you should have a professional service it. The Light engine needs to be removed and cleaned.
If you lightly push on the screen does the blob move slightly ? If it does it's not on the screen it's in the optics or the mirror.
You may also have a bug or smug on the main mirror that causes the same thing. This will appear about 2 times the normal size of the object. If your up to removing the screen Take a look closely at the mirror on the back of the set. You can clean this with windex it's glass. If you do take the screen off hold it up to the light. Sometimes spiders make webs and leave marks.
Good Luck

Pop sound is probably the Lamp or maybe the color wheel. When you unplug and try it on do you hear a whirling or winning sound ? Is it followed by a slight ticking sound ? If you get the whirling and a ticking sound it's probably a bad lamp. If you don't hear the whirling sound you may have a bad color wheel. The parts are both made of glass. The pop you heard was one of them breaking. If you can't tell, order a lamp you will need to change it eventually anyway.

RCA Scenium... | Answered on Apr 19, 2009

If it is a buzzing noise, it is the Ballast for the lamp.
If it is more of a grinding sound, it is the Color Wheel motor.
Does it go away when you turn off the tv? If so, does it stop abruptly or does the sound tend to get softer (winding down noise)
If the noise stops abruptly it is probably the Ballast.
If the noise takes several seconds and seems to get softer until it stops about 30 sec later then it is the color wheel motor.

I have the same problem with my 50".
My fix was to buy a new bulb from Tristate Module Inc., $113.
Installed the new bulb and the tv worked fine.
You may notice a grinding sound, this deals with the color wheel motor that needs to warm up to
work correctly. The new lamp will warm up the color wheel.

you are having a problem in your power supply, standby power supply where the microchip is situated take the set to a tech to have it repair.good luck.

RCA Scenium... | Answered on Apr 14, 2009

My exact same problem turned out to be the cable box not the TV. Try unplugging cable box for 5 minutes then power up! Solved my problem!

RCA Scenium... | Answered on Apr 09, 2009

Check your power supply board for some bad caps (capacitors) on the board. They will look bulged on the top an may be a little leaky (brownish stain). A bad cap can sometimes produce a harmonic, causing issue's with the sound. Also look at the signal board (where all the inputs are), for bad caps. I have come across this on a lcd tv!! Good luck, hope this is helpful!
