How to dust off color wheel in Optoma HD80 by myself?

Looks like I need to clean again color wheel in my Optoma HD80. I don't want to send it again and again to service. Can I do it by myself without braking something? Did anyone make it? Detailed instruction, how to do this, would be highly appreciated.

Hi Brad

You'll have to go into the service menu and check if all the colours are showing the same percentage.

We normally set all of them on 50%

SOURCE: 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.

Sound like the original color wheel for Optoma HD80 is bad.

If the unit has been moved when hot.

If not, try un-plugging the unit for a few minutes and re-connect.

Hope this helps

Color wheel sounds like a buzz saw. Fan is quiet because there is no noise in the cool-down mode. Can this be replaced by user?


Baily, I have had my HC1500U color wheel replaced two times due to the color wheel's unpleasant "buzz saw" effect showing up every few thousand hours of usage. It is happening again for the third time and I am still within Coscto's warranty so I am going to have it replaced again...will never buy a DLP projector again...too many moving parts that can break!

Would love to be able to replace it myself if you ever find a place that sells the color wheel.

Optoma projector HD806


its not the color wheel. Its the sensor that counts the black tape on the color wheel. The sensor has dust on it. It can't count how many times the wheel is going around because the dust is blocking it. the sensor is located by the wheel. if you have any questions you can callme 610-842-7442 ask for dan.

Need color wheel for Optoma EP745. Are any available?


Optoma sells a color wheel, same issue I have. Call 888-942-2929 & ask parts to send you a color wheel. Not sure the cost, BUT I read in another forum they are 89.99.
