Question about Optoma MovieTime DV10 Multimedia Projector
I removed the six screws on the bottom, and two in the DVD trey, still won't come off, what did I miss? Thanks!
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.

SOURCE: 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
