The clorwheel is the problem. Once the bearings go bad in the colorwheel, it's toast. Replace the colorwheel and you'll be ok

Hello I have a dlp samsung hlp4663wx/xaa. Last week the picture went black the sound is good . I replaced the lamp and the problem continues . I also replace the color wheel a year ago. know everything is...


It is the DMD board especially if the lamp stays lit. If the lamp is not lit... Be sure you have the lamp in properly...that is plugged in good and the door has the door switch engaged. Be sure door switch is still good and did not get damaged when replacing the lamp. DMD board can be found at encompassparts 1-800-638-3328 for 318.51 plus 150.00 for the core but right now is on FACTORY BACKORDER Part number
BP96-00678DCurrently on Ebay for 179.00 plus 15.00 shipping. Enter part number in search

I have an rca hdlp6iw51 and i found a color wheel on ebay but i dont know how to change it does anyone have any advice


Follow this steps:
1. Take the back panel off of your set, using your Phillips head screwdriver, to remove any screws. 2. Remove the projector lamp. You can reach the color wheel without doing it, but you are less likely to damage the projector lamp if you take it out. Loosen the screws at the base: depending on your DLP's brand, the screws may come out, or may just loosen. If they come out, set them in a safe place before removing the lamp. If not, just pull the entire lamp out, once the screws will not loosen further. 3. Take out the panel that is connected to the cable outlets, using the screwdriver to take out any screws. Pull the panel until the cables, attached from the inside, run out of slack.
4. Remove the screws at the bottom of the panel, in the center, and any screws connecting this panel to the outer case of your DLP. The number and location of these screws will vary depending on your DLP's brand.

  • 6 Pull out the entire center unit, pulling gradually. Then, unplug the power cable from the main set (this is generally blue and brown). Remove the sensor switch and any cables joining the center unit to either side of the set.
  • 7 Take out the plug from the cover of the color wheel. In most brands, it will have a black and blue wire connected to a green circuit board. Then, remove any cables coming out of the wheel. Depending on the brand, the screws may be small enough to require the jeweler's screwdriver.
  • 8 Remove the screws holding the color wheel cover in place. Remove the cover, then take out the screws holding the wheel in place. If tape is holding the wheel, just pull on the wheel until it comes free.
  • 9 Put the new wheel into the slot. You do not want to touch the wheel, or you will blemish it and leave impressions that will be visible when the light shines through it. Re-insert the screws. Then, replace the cover, making sure that the wire jacks are in the same places.

    Why does my samsung tv cut off by itself after 1-2 min and flash a red lamp button?


    A little explanation first- this model (as do most Samsung DLP sets) will try 3 times to get the lamp lit before the microprocessor will give up and then the 3 lites on the front will blink indicating a LAMP failure. This process takes about 1 to 2 minutes. In order of probabilty, the failures are:
    1) A faulty lamp and/or ballast. REPLACE LAMP AND/OR BALLAST
    However, a faulty lamp and/or ballast are not the only things that will give this blink code-
    2) If the color wheel has a bad bearing and turns too slow or not at all, the microprocessor WILL NOT let the lamp light, and then give a LAMP blink code. A bad color wheel will normally have some sort of abnormal sound- a low growl or high pitched whine is common. REPLACE COLOR WHEEL
    3) ALSO, if the microprocessor (on the DMD board) in its color wheel rotation detection or processing fails, once again the lamp is prevented from coming on and you get a LAMP blink code. REPLACE DMD BOARD
    IF THE SET EVER COMES ON WITH A PICTURE for even a fraction of a second or though it takes many tries, the lamp and ballast are good. The problem must be either the color wheel or DMD board.

    Buzzing sound coming from colorwheel and not spinning as if something was holding it in place. after some reserch I ordered a new color wheel but the same problem so I tried 2 more thinking defictive but...


    Sounds more like a lamp ballest. Listen for the sequence of events and please repost.
    Upon powerup the fans come on, and the color wheel spins up. Once up to speed the lamp ballest is commanded to arc the bulb,(clicking sound) once lit the power supply just sustains the glow in the lamp.

    Infocus 4805 blinking red light problem


    My first questions is:

    Is this the first lamp you have placed into your Infocus pj? If not, did you reset the hours when you did it last time? Otherwise that can also confuse the projectors internal system thinking there is NOT a new lamp in there and there for make it stop working once the clock hours are expired and over the 3000-6000 suggested hour life.

    Let me know so I can help trouble shoot other possible problems.
