Bad Color after replacing Color Wheel, removing jumper wire did not fix it
Replaced the Color Wheel solely because of its noise, the color & picture were fine before. Tried the suggestion of removing the jumper wire (I suppose it was the proper one--it's really short) but then the tv would not come on at all, indicating "Lamp, Stand-by, Temp." Put the jumper wire back, tv came on but color was still awful. I've invested so much time and energy, plus the price of the color wheel, that I hate to call in a repairman! Thanx, Salee

A number of people have commented that after changing the color wheel,
their red and blue colors are reversed. This is a different color wheel
and a newer model set than is documented here, but, some report that by
removing a jumper on the color wheel, the problem is resolved.
The jumper is as shown in this picture, below the yellow/white label.
On the metal box where the two cables from the color wheel plugged look for a tiny rectangular opening in the metal shield---there is a tiny jumper plug there, remove it carefully with a tiny pair of needle nose pliers.
One of the things they do not tell you when you replace the color wheel, it is somewhat different than the original one.

your set will auto ajust.
ther are sum small settings to add in the service menue to fine tune it.
but first pull that jumper..
seting can be found on google... i think i found it on tech assist.
and enterd model number.
Well after reading a lot more on the internet I figured out that there is a jumper that has to be removed when you update to the new style color wheel. Also when you get the new wheel there is a new set of color setting that needs to be programed into the tv itself. NOW the picture is AWESOME! better than when it was new.
I just had a service tech out and replaced the color wheel. now i have the same issue with the color...the people all look blue. He told me that now the the digital board is bad. It's the board were all of the connections go. I'm not convinced, as I remember reading something about color settings needing to be adjusted after color wheel replacement.
