RCA HD50LPW62AYX2 50" - color wheel replacement procedure

Hi, 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! Thanks, Mike

    Thanks for the information. I will attempt your steps first chance I get. Since I didn't know how to get to the color wheel, I did not order the part.

    Here's where I found the part,

SOURCE: 50" RCA DLP color wheel replacement procedure

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.

I have the m50wh72s rca dlp....and will be changing my bulb with thanks to this site!.....but what about the colorwheel?...is it easy to change ?....and is it exspensive to buy?


The color wheel if used may no longer be available from RCA. With the exact model number GOOGLE the model number with the words COLOR WHEEL after it and if I remember some of the wheels were rather expensive.

Let me know if you have questions.

No Picture but sound


if you have a dlp with the 267888 color wheel, the wheels cant be replaced as RCA no longer makes them. If you use one of the other type color wheels you can get a replacement at the following link. They would need the model number of your set as The D52W19 isnt a dlp and doesnt have a color wheel. So just let them know what the model number of your set is.

RCA has discontinued the color wheel for your model and its on nationwide back order, so you cant buy the replacement. You can get your color wheel rebuilt at the following link and the rebuilt color wheels are fully guaranteed.

They make two different color wheels for the Rca DLP are you positive you got the right one. As usually its a straight forward install no adjusting needed. Post the chassis number off the back of your set and I will try to help you out with it.
