I need just a color wheel replacement for a Sharp 56DR650 part# P/N oc-cw7bb-bc017. How much are they


A new color wheel can run anywhere from $250 to $350. You can get your current bulb and color wheel repaired for around $300. If you want it repaired, you can check this link:

but I would definitely recommend buying a used one to replace your current one instead.

Color wheel or did i break something else?


Usually a bad color wheel will produce a high pitched sound or even a grinding noise; some sets may actually shut down if the wheel is bad or shattered.

To determine if you have a bad color wheel:
  1. Turn set off and wait for main fan to shut off.
  2. Unplug the set.
  3. Remove the lamp door and then remove the lamp.
  4. In the direction the lamp faces you will see a round opening; the color wheel is facing this opening. It is a round plastic wheel with colored segments—we want to look to see if any of the segments are missing; a shattered wheel should be clear to see.
I have also posted the general instructions for Do it yourself replacement of this part in the TIPS AND TRICKS section of this site.

I will attach a photo of the color wheel for you to know what you are looking for----

Shattered color wheel


The color wheels for these projectors can run anywhere from $50-$150 plus installation. With projectors now in the 3-400 range it may actually cost less to replace instead of repair.

Want to know if color wheel can be repaired?


Unfortunately, you can't replace just the bearing. You would have to replace the complete color wheel. Here's a link for a major parts distributor so you can get an idea on priceing:

HL-R6768W not turning on. High pitch spin sound. Bad color wheel?


The high-pitched whine is definitely the color wheel.  The early color wheels had problems and many had to be replaced.  As part of the turn-on process, the TV checks for light and then checks for color wheel sync.  If the bearings are wearing out/dried out, it could cause issues with getting the proper color wheel sync, causing the set to not pass the turn on sequence.
Check Sears or partstore.com for a color wheel.  I like sears for experimental replacements since they allow easy returns.
BTW, mine is an early 61".  My color wheel was replaced when I had to replace my Light Engine.  My in-laws 50" was an early one and theirs went out within 2 years.

My RCA is screeching


To install the color wheel, turn off and unplug the tv, take off the lower back casing (17 star type screws), remove the lamp door, remove the lower back casing. Look just left of the lamp you will see 3 smaller star type screws near a small circuit board (which is on the color wheel), remove those screws unplug cable from color wheel, unplug other end of 2nd cable from tv circuit board (just to the upper left nearest to the color wheel.

All you have to do is install the color wheel, plug in both cables, put the back on and place the lamp door back in its position, the lamp door pushes in a lillte blue lever which allows the lamp bulb to light up.

I'm in the process of doing the same myself on my RCA same model. Where did you buy the color wheel from?
