Bad question, I know. Does RCA have a DLP problem?
Just got two 50" units in, only out by one number in their serial number. Example: 1234567AB, & 1234567AC. One dead right out of the box, the other dead, after not much use. They were made in Feb 2005. Called Tech support, we are ASC. One guy said: Light engine bad, which is about $ 1,800 can, another Tech said: Lamp bad, about $ 250 can. What's a Tech to do? I haven't even seen a partially working unit yet, to know what it sounds like when starting up, & running. How can you test a DLP lamp? There expensive, & you can't measure them, to be sure? Can you set up a test jig, to test the lamps? Sky.
