Getting projector open to replace color wheel

Hi Marrie,
After figuring out through these forums that my color wheel on my DV10 Optoma projector was broken, I ordered a replacement and finally got it.  Now, however, the problem is that I can't get the darn thing open to replace the color wheel. I unscrewed the bottom 6 screws but it still won't come off.  Are there any additional screws I'm missing or something I overlooked? I don't want to pry too hard because I'm scared of breaking it. 
Thanks so much!

    Where can I purchase a color wheel for DV10 projector?

  • Anonymous Jan 04, 2009

    I have a strange problem. After around 10 minutes of playing I will lose the colour but the picture is still playing. It has to do something with heat because if I take the cover off it does not happen. The colour wheelis still spinning but picture has hardly any colour. Very strange why this overheating suddenly happens.
    Anyone experienced the sameproblem?

You need to open the top lid of the DVD player and you'll notice 2 more screws. Those need to be taken out. Then the lid will lift off the base. You'll then need to undo a couple of the wires to completely remove the lid. After this, you will have to remove the silver lid inside to gain access to the color wheel. It's pretty simple. Assembly is reverse.

Color wheel sounds like a buzz saw. Fan is quiet because there is no noise in the cool-down mode. Can this be replaced by user?


Baily, I have had my HC1500U color wheel replaced two times due to the color wheel's unpleasant "buzz saw" effect showing up every few thousand hours of usage. It is happening again for the third time and I am still within Coscto's warranty so I am going to have it replaced again...will never buy a DLP projector again...too many moving parts that can break!

Would love to be able to replace it myself if you ever find a place that sells the color wheel.

I have the same issue, I have figured out its a fan issue, my fan must have went out. After about ten minutes the bulb will get too hot and the picture will start to turn a way off tint color. I put a fan on my projector and after about 40 min. the picture returned to the appropriate color. I am still investigation on how to get and replace the fan.

Optoma DV10 color wheel


Okay, I recently had a loud noise coming from my projector and found online meterial stating that the colour wheel had been damaged. So with a bit of guts I managed to open the projector and found the colour wheel missing a segment.

I removed the colour wheel and the broken piece of the segement and tried to contact Optoma. Optoma turned round and said they cannot sell me the the colour wheel, which got me very upset. Some people claim online that Optoma will sell you the part on a back order at £50. (if you can be a little specific on how you managed to convince them to sell you the part, would be great).

The only option I had available was to send my project to them and they would repair for an estimated cost of £125+VAT. Guess what, you can buy the entire projector off ebay for 150quid!!!

Anyways after fiddling around quite a big online I got fedup and decided to glue the broken segment together and it SOLVED the loud vibration problem. I have colour and picture.

Becareful not to tighten the colour wheel screw too tight orelse it will break another piece of segement (Like I did).

Here are instructions on how to open up the projector.

I cannot guarantee this will work for you as it depends on how badly you have shattered the colour wheel segment, so do at your own risk. I had two piece of the segment broken and a third by tightening the colour wheel screw too tight.

This will work for awhile but the colour wheel does need replaceing one day. If anyone can tell me how you can get Optoma to sell you the colour wheel would be great.

Best of Luck

Yes, you can replace the color wheel yourself if you are handy with a screwdriver.

Optoma DV10 MovieTime Color Wheel replacement


Hi guys

Your best bet on getting your hands on a Service Manual would be to contact Optoma themself.

As for changing the colour wheel , it is pretty straight forward if you were able to open up the unit and get to it.

The colourwheel is mounted with three tiny scrws to a bracket in which it sits. And the bracket in it's turn is fastenend to the body of the Projector with two tiny screws.

First unscrew the bracket from the casing of the Projector and then take off the three screws that holds the Colour wheel to the bracket. Replace and do the whole proses again - but obviously just the other way round.

This is really easy to do yourself.

Give me a shout if you need any further assistance.

Thanks for using Fixya and good luck.
