    I have the same issue. Mine is the 62HM15A and it has had a low humming sound for quite some time. Thought it was just the fan motor but it now appears thatit is the color wheel / light engine. Told it will cost around $900 to fix. I am looking for other options.

    Great TV when its working but lamp problems and this issue seem to be the norm for the Toshiba DLP's.

had a 46H84 given to me after "engine failure diagnosed" by Tech and $800 + estimate
Removed the engine and found the color wheel was very dirty and the shaft was not spinning well- cotton swab and denatured alcohol did the trick-
then cleaned the lens which was also dirty and while I was at it cleaned the mirror and backside of screen
Turned it on and WALLA- new set - the fan is a little noisy yet but liveable.
Total investment? 3-4 hours, 10-15 cotton swabs and a little alcohol- for the set on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Just took a little common sense - the service manual is available online also for about $8 shows basic teardown but does not get into engine teardown which was very basic. My guess is a majority of engine failures after 4-5 years are simply in need of a good cleaning in reality

Its a mystery why Toshiba does not sell the color wheel assy independently from the light engine. If I were facing a repair cost like this, I'd be on the phone with Toshiba.

I have heard the PTS in Indiana can rebuild color wheel assys and ballast boards for Toshiba DLPs, you might give them a call.

Buy a cheaper color wheel !

Sorry, the color wheel is only available in the Light Engine Assembly. You can not purchase it as a single part. You will have to purchase the engine and replace it to repair your TV. PN: 23405476 it runs about $450 with a $200 core. You may find it cheaper... I don't think it is readily available... Best of luck to you, I hope this was helpful.

Problem when you turn it on,

You have a bad color wheel motor. Its bearings are humming and the shifts in color are due to the speed of the motor changing. Obtaining a color wheel for these Toshiba DLPs is difficult. The manufacturer does not sell any of the most often needed components, color wheels, ballast boards separately form the light engine assembly resulting in a very expensive repair bill.

Call Toshiba. Maybe they'll have mercy on you and help with the cost of repairs.

Good Luck!

Shattered color wheel

The color wheels for these projectors can run anywhere from $50-$150 plus installation. With projectors now in the 3-400 range it may actually cost less to replace instead of repair.

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

Can someone help me with my phillips 50P8341A

It could be caps around the power supply. If this is a LCD projection TV, it might be the color wheel.

I would call some TV repair places to see what they say. If it is a power supply issue, I cannot see it costing more than $50 to fix it. If it is a color wheel or something like that, the cost will be quite a bit higher.

Does the power light still come on?
