    on a four 1/2 yr old 61" RCA, i've changed thee lamps.

    This latest was coincidentally when I experienced what may be a very loud color wheel spinning.

    nothing wrong with picture, but it sings louder than the sound from the tv!

    is it tough changing the color wheel.?? how much ? $150 i think.

    Light engine ***'y?? $400?

A service manual from rca would be beneficial and yes you can replace the color wheel. It is a fragile element made of wafer thin glass. I would suggest a pro due this task because if he breaks it, no cost to you.

if you don't hear a high-pitched whir, your colorwheel needs replacing. you can remove the lamp and see the colorwheel inside (colored glass wheel). if you turn it on without the lamp, the colorwheel should still spin. if it does, you have a ballast problem. if not, the colorwheel. you'd still need to send it in to an infocus authorized service center. try av solutions in ny. they're pretty good.

After 700 hrs the image gets faint..at first it was ok then the bulb light gets faintier..


clean out projector with canned air. if that doesn't work, the colorwheel may be dirty and needs cleaning or replacing. remove the lamp and look inside the lamp housing to see the colorwheel. if it is clear colored glass, it's fine. if it's milky, it's filthy.

High pitch noise from the projector and is not from the fans


it's the colorwheel. if you have an infocus x1a, it is a dlp projector and has a colorwheel and dmd chip instead of 3 lcd panels. the colorwheel spins to allow the lamp to stike. it should make a slight high-pitched squeal. if it's too loud, the motor is shot and needs replacing.

the colorwheel may be bad. if the colorwheel doesn't spin correctly, the lamp won't light. turn it on without the lamp in. look inside the lamp housing and see if the multi-colored glass disk (colorwheel) is spinning. if it isn't, or it's laboring, it needs replacing.

Light went out


then it may not be the lamp, but make sure you have the right one (sp-lamp-021). also check to see if the colorwheel is moving. turn the projector on and listen for a high-pitched whir. if you don't hear one, the colorwheel needs replacing. and the lamp won't light without the colorwheel spinning.

Color wheel


The motor is nothing more than a harddrive motor, not sure that was the right solution but.... I would suggest that your chassis is not in the right location. Verify that the chasis is centered on the mounting bosses. The screws might be a good clue. Good luck.

Color is wrong after color wheel replacement


Hello,

You probably replaced a bearing colorwheel, and it was replaced with a bearingless. If you look inside the TV on the back of the light engine (the silver box in front of and to the left of the color wheel), there should be a jumper (that connects two wires coming out) toward the bottom of it in a recessed little hole. That jumper should be removed if the color wheel was replaced with the air bearing type. Just grasp it gently with a pair of needle nose pliers, and pull it out slowly.

This should restore a normal color operation, but there might be some other adjustments that need to be made if it doesn't clear it up completely.

I hope this helps you...
