What is the model # ? If this is a DLP set chances are it is the color wheel.

Color on vivitek RPTV


what is the model number?

I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. The TV keeps turning off and on. The color and sound is fine. I have replaced the lamp and this has not fixed the problem.


If its a DLP it may have a color wheel which could be your problem (the colors will change etc)

Color wheels move at high speed and if slow down set will shut down.

The wheel if there will face the lamp. If often if failing will make a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

The indicator light showed our 51" vivitek projection tv needed a new bulb. We bought and installed a new one - now there is no picture. The bulb is working - but still no picture.


when you replace the door, after you have reinstalled the lamp, make sure that the button inside the television cabinet is being pushed in by the door. i had the same problem when i first replaced my bulb.

Being on for while color goes makes humming sound when turned on


Your color wheel is most likely the culprit. Mine also started humming and and it got louder and more annoying.
You could try cleaning it with an air can, but it sounds like it needs replacing.
I replaced mine myself last week and it works great!
Unfortunately, the site I bought mine from is now out of stock. for the 51" Vivitek I have, but they may have yours since they had parts for the 56" as well.
http://www.vancebaldwin.com was the site I went to.Login as guest and then type model number into corresponding box and see if they are in stock.
I changed mine myself and would be glad to give any help I can.
Good luck!

Flashing in Blk,Wht, and a little color


Sounds like maybe your color wheel needs to be replaced. If you have noticed a humming noise in conjunction with the intermittent colors, then that is most likely the issue.
My 51" Vivitek started to hum loudly about 2 months ago and I kind of ignored it ,but it got so loud and annoying I had to do something.First changed the bulb and then bought a color wheel at www.vancebaldwin.com .Login as guest and then enter your model number into corresponding box.They have a few Vivitek parts.
I replaced my color wheel myself and it works great!
I'd be happy to help any way I can.
Good luck!

Vivitek 56 inch dlp projection is humming. why and how to fix


In my experience, the humming means your color wheel is going. The bearings inside the wheel are probably giving out.
My Vivitek started humming a couple of months ago and first I replaced the lamp.
Still hummed.
I read in other forums that humming is linked to color wheels and that seemed like where the noise was coming from.
I purchased a new wheel online and replaced it myself...
..no more humming, the picture is great and now I can listen to the movie again...not the tv!

Vivitek 51'' DLP color wheel


it's not hard at all, trust me. but you have to go at it slowly when doing it for the first time. it's just about unscrewing and disconnecting wires. Nothing that is hard to reach either. I can help you step by step if you want, just email me.
However, my problem is to get the correct color wheel!!!! I have ordered twice from Vance Baldwin now and looks like they keep shipping me the wrong color wheel? first, the new color wheel does not look like the old one, then its wire connection is shorter making it harder to connect and then when done, the tv switches all the colors around: so red becomes blue and blue becomes red! what's going on???? I tried it twice with 2 new color wheel?I gave them the correct model number along with the serial number and they assure me the color wheel they shipped me is the correct one but I swear it is not!!!! so what's going on?
If anybody has an answer on how to deal with this, please let me know! here is my email:
chuericly@gmail.com. Thanks.
