SOURCE: Getting projector open to replace color wheel

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

How do u change the front signal bulbs on SRX 2004 with out taking the whole car apart???


Remove the bottom plastic cover along the front grills by pulling the push pins which hold them in place. You can slide the cover out . Remove the plastic cover inside the wheel which is also held by push pins.

When both the covers are out you ca use an 9/32'' wrench to remove the two bolts which hold the whole lamp assembly.You then need a torx driver to remove the six torx screws in the light assembly and you can replace the bulb.

My dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean, so i started taking the lower end apart to clean, got to a gray wheel looking object with a screw in the top which was recessed and still the wheel looking...


If there is still standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher, remove it with a wet vac then look for the missing screw. It might be in the vac.

If no luck, try using a good small stick magnet to retrieve the screw. These screws are usually stainless steel, but the alloy is in the low 300 series so they are still slightly magnetic.

If you pull the slinger/impeller, you may need to replace the pump/slinger mechanical seal, so proceed carefully.

My Optoma 739's color wheel broke. Ordered new one, just want to know: Is there any instructions on how to take out old and once new one is in, how to calibrate new color wheel. thanks for help, Aurelio


you don't need to calibrate it. unscrew the bottom and rear screws, remove the top case, remove the boards (be sure to remember where the wires go that you remove), locate the colorwheel (between the lamp and the lens), unplug the colorwheel wire, remove the mounting screws, replace with new one, reverse the instructions, plug it in, turn it on, enjoy!

Colors not right on DV10


i had same problem so i opened up the casing of the projector and blew the dust off the inside components. it has been two days without the problem and the picture quality is better. probably an overheating problem due to all the dust. just be careful when taking it apart because there are a few cables to disconnect and a bunch of hidden screws, if it's still under warranty or you don't feel confident taking it apart, i'd send it in to get fixed.

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.
