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

    I'm thinking the wiring on the new color wheel is wrong, because I pulled the tv apart again, took out the new color wheel and put the old one back in. When I had the old wheel out, I dropped a few minute drops of WD-40 on its axle, spun it around a few times, and dropped a bit more onto it. It seems the blue wire (the group of two white and one blue) attaches opposite than the original but there's only one way it will connect. I re-assembled the tv with the old wheel, and the color is good; the buzzing noise subsided after about 30 seconds on the first powerup, but has since returned. It might diminish somewhat after the tv has been on for awhile, but I've still got to figure out if the wiring on the new wheel is opposite (Suppose I should contact the parts supplier!) Anyone have any suggestions on how to reverse the wiring?

    i wasted 3 color wheels before i solved the problem. after replacing color wheel and before turning tv on you must remove the jumper , this will restore proper colors more vivid than new. jumper is inside opening inside a vertical metal plate about 1 inch under sticker.it is black rubber remove it and reverse color problems will be resolved. if you dont remove it you will destroy the color wheel.

Remove the lamp and look at the color wheel that faces it.

If wheel is shattered or missing pieces set will know it is not moving or moving too slow and shut set and lamp off.

Not all color wheels when fail make a sound

Repair job update


Update
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.

My Samsung DLP 5663W was making the loud humming noise. Picture was just fine, but the noise was loud. I checked both fans which seemed to be fine, so I ordered the replacement color wheel. When I replaced...


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.

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.
