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

Optoma EP719 projector broken circular glass disk


The piece that's cracked is called a color wheel. I spoke with the parts department at optoma and they want $300 for a new color wheel for my ep 732h projector. I'm not sure if it's the same part but you can contact optoma on their website and they'll get back to you with a price quote for that part.

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!

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.

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.
