50" RCA DLP color wheel replacement procedure

I have a 50" RCA DLP with the model number HD50LPW62AYX2. I need to change the color wheel but cannot find any how-to's when I google it. Although, there seems to be a lot of info including how-to videos for Samsungs. I believe the color wheel part number I need is RCA 267888. Any information or pictures (depicting the location of the color wheel) you can give me would be greatly appreicated! Thank You!

Mine started to howl last year, I sprayed out the motor using carb cleaner / lubricant. Its been running fine for over a year since.

My guess is, the bushing gets plugged with dust particals. If you catch it as soon as it starts to squeek, the carb cleaner trick may work for you too.

Do you get to the color wheel through the front or back?

    I bought a motor, but the noise was worse after I put the new motor on. Eventually, I found that the rotor (attached to the color wheel) had a bad spot inside it that was rubbing on the stator. The bad spot turned out to be chrome that was coming off, and a dimple was created, causing the rub. I scraped the spot of chrome off, and it is now working fine (at least for now).

Here is a company selling the RCA 267888 color wheel:

http://www.partstore.com/Part/Thomson/RCA/267888.aspx?s=froogle

Working on the RCA SCENIUM 50"DLP HDTV HD50LPW164 was easy. Access to the color wheel was not from the back. Taking off the screen revealed a plastic cover. Underneath, the wheel was easy to locate and remove.

FYI Clearly, the tiny motor that spins the wheel is not up to the task. Too many fail within 2 years, some less.

The bearing is just a bronze bushing. Once it has worn down, the wheel can vibrate and the squealing begins.

The motor is made by Delta. A company I have emailed who tell me I could buy from them. In the meantime I bought a motor from a company here in the US.

The motor looks exactly the same BUT how on earth one changes over the glass color wheel to the new motor is a mystery. I have emailed the company, TSM Inc. to ask them if they have the info. By selling the motor separately, I was led to believe it was possible to change over the color wheel.

Here is the motor I purchased:

Scroll down.

Hope the info helps!

Cheers,
Dave

    Well guys,

    I just took a second look at the Tristate Module page I just posted.



    Duh, it clearly shows where to insert a screwdiver blade. With a little more effort than I expected, the new rotor popped off the stator. I cleaned the spindle on the color wheel/rotor combo and inserted in to the new stator. I gave it a firm push together and it popped into place. Voila, perfect! No play and the wheel spins perfectly.



    I'll be reinserting the color wheel unit tomorrow. A $50 fix! Can't beat that!



    Cheers guys,

    Dave

I had already bought the Delta motor from TSM before I found this site. $55 shipped, got it next day. Replacement was straightforward and fairly easy. Works great.

Programming Notes
• If your device does not respond to the remote after trying all codes listed or your brand is not listed in the code list, use the Auto Code Search method to program your remote.
• Sometimes the first code that "works" with your device may operate only a few functions of your device. There may be another code in the code list that performs more functions. Try other codes from the code list for more functionality.
This is a trial and error procedure; and quiet time consuming. You might have to check different codes said for your device.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; to which you want set-up codes; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window" to get gathered related posts. .

Where can I purchase a replacement remote for my 2004 ESA DVD player?


If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchase a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

If your converter box only has RF outpit connectors "F" type screw on it looks like this my be more of a monitor then tv.I took a quick look at the manual and didn't see any RF inputs so it appears it doesn't have tuners built in Looks like you'll need a box that has RCA output connectors.or others that will match what the monitor has on it for input types
