Samsung dlp the picture is all shadows with dark green/black colors after replacing with new color wheel..what is wrong? Is it a bad color wheel?


no you need to adjust the color wheel to factory specs by getting into the service software. The color wheel has to be timed to the engine.

Just replaced color wheel. When TV turned on seemed fine but then i noticed a grey/black shadow band on one side. What could be the cause?


I had a similar issue with mine from the factory. There was a grey/black shadow in the upper left. Called for repair. The guy took off the circular access panel on the left back side and there was a fingerprint on the projection lense. He cleaned it and it disappeared. Sounds the same. Maybe touched the lense replacing the color wheel?

There is a line, like a shadow on the right side of the screen all the way up and down. What is that from?


Your TV uses a "Light Tunnel". A part which has various filters to create the proper "color" of light needed to produce the picture. Sometimes, one of these filters slips, causing a shadow to appear in a corner or along an edge. The appearance is this defect is more of a shadow and does not have a sharp, defined edge (like a letterbox image would). You can replace the entire light engine to repair this or just replace the light tunnel. The light tunnel repair is much more difficult... I would recommend a service call, as this is not a simple procedure. I hope this helps.

Dark shadow about 4'' at top of screen of 56'' dlp samsung hlr5667


There is a piece connected to the color wheel assembly called a light tunnel. It is between the color wheel and optic assembly. There is 4 mirrors inside. One of them probably got dislodged when the wheel shattered. Sometimes they can be repaired using high temp glue or you may have to replace the tunnel.

Black and white picture only


The color wheel is not the problem. If the spinning color wheel is impaired in its RPMs it will cause picture distortion, not black and white picture. If the color wheel looses any of its color fins, like if it is broken, there will be a loud vibrating noise inside the tv which you did not mention. Also if the color wheel is broken and doesn't spin, the tv will not start up.

The likely problem is on the digital control board or the power supply and should be referred to a local repair shop for repair.

There is an outside chance that you will receive color if you experiment with using all of the different input ports to see if you can find one that will bring back color.

TV has alittle dark haze,not bad,9inchs in from side,top to Bott


Probably the light tunnel. The tunnel is a square tube made up of 4 mirrors glued together.

It looks like this from the side: |_| (with a piece on top too.)
When the glue breaks down, it shifts inside the little mirror holder. The shifted mirrors looks like this /_/ what you are seeing is the shadow of the tilted mirror tunnel.
ON the RCA's there's not a good fix.

RCA's response:
"Ok, well sadly they do not offer the light tunnel anymore, which is what you need. Sadly you would be rendered to get a whole new light engine assembly. That would be the D.N.D module, light tunnel,color wheel,optic spanner, and oci. mirror. Your best bet would be to search ebay2_bing.gif for a broken engine and replace it that ways."

That is the ONLY response I got from them.

I took the set apart and found the 4 tiny mirrors. I will be attempting to epoxy them together. (The set is dead anyway, why not try?)
