just make sure to get the right color wheel, as mine after changing it changed the color around (blue became red and red became blue), I have to send it back for Vance Baldwin to send me another one...Well I called them and they said they probably send me a defective one, but the one I received did not even look like the old one for that might explain it.
Anyways, I don't think there are a "how to" for the Vivitek, but it really isn't hard at all. Just unscrew the back of the tv, and then unscrew the tray ( on your right) and slowly pull it out. Then you will see there will be a bunch of wires connection to disconnect, pretty easy, just make sure to remember which one goes where, but it's relatively easy. Then work on the color wheel. The color wheel is inside the big black box cover, so open that firdt (just the left part is good enough) then you will find a metallic casing under the black cover, open that also (just the right side again) and then voila! the color wheel should be there. From there you should be able to figure out what to do next. Good luck, and let us know how it went...because I'm still waiting on my new color wheel to redo it again...might have done it about 6 times now...child's play...

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.

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 .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... more humming, the picture is great and now I can listen to the movie again...not the tv!

I just replaced the lamp and after about half hour screen goes green and blue. What is the problem?

I relaced a bulb and then my vivitek 56" started to do wierd color flickering, turns out that there was dust in the color wheel. I fixed by taking off the back and with can of air blew lightly into the color wheel area ( has tiny hole) I didn't put the nozzle through the holes. But the minute I did that a big piece of dust came out and tv is working great. Hope it helps

Sharp 56DR650 Color Wheel.

Encompass parts distribution has more than 50. I order off the internet. Part number and brand name is viv 3250701500 vivitek. With shipping about $119.00. I think the television is worth repairing. Look for people who are dumping the sets.Mark
