Problem with a color wheel filter

I have a Thomson 44DLP540.  recently a color wheel filter broke. (first the sound then the lamp stopped lighting). they told me at the service that thomson doesnt provide replacement parts for filter. but i also was told that the same filter goes with some lg dlp tv sets and it can be replaced on my thomson. is it true and if so, what lg model can be used?

Makes noise around light and will not come on.

yes a broken color wheel can prevent a set from powering up but a broken lamp could also shatter and have pieces near the color wheel.

Loud sound would be coming from defective color wheel that is mounted i light engine, next to lamp housing. Replacement of color wheel is required expertise/ experience and professional will do that for you in correct and in safe manner.

Sounds like the lamp went out but I would not waste the money on the lamp because the color wheel is not available on this set you have to replace the light engine and with the lamp being most likely out and the light engine going bad you will be out a lot of money.

Is the color wheel fine if it is spinning? Can you see any light from the dlp lamp when the screen is off? I had a service guy come by to fix my dlp and he replaced the bulb with no luck. He said it was...

First You can look on the rear of the set and see the lamp light shine through the lamp door vents when the set is on. Second you need to replace the whole color wheel before the set will work. Third Color wheels may spin but not at the correct rpm and may shut down the tv and sometimes color wheels will emit a high pitched whine or buzzing sound indicating that the bearings in the motor are wearing out. But now that you have to replace the color wheel you will need to adjust the index delay in the service menu. I suggest having a factory trained tech repair the set.

Lamp will not come on after replacement

Sounds like a ballast problem. Did you change the ballast or just the lamps? You may want to check your ballast, also the air filter, as this will stop your set from powering on.

Turning on but no picture at all

I would check to see if the lamp is actually comming on before anything else. The color wheel won't cause a loss of picture. Here is a link to purchase a suitable replacement lamp for the TV. It is 300 dollars less than the RCA version.
