Color wheels in that unit were updated to remedy a flaw in their initial manufacturing. I suspect you have one of the updated wheels and now the dmd board is having a problem distinquishing relative speed etc. Pull dmd jumper to fix it. Remove the jumper pin on the dmd board, metal shield has a cut-out so you can just reach in and grab it with a pair of needle nose pliers and pull it out.

The bulb is even easier. Also you do no need gloves if you don't touch the glass bulb. So just use a towel and be very careful while putting your new bulb into the old housing.
