Finally cheap color wheel for any brand and models projector,
if one color wheel just cost less than USD110 and with shipping, and with 12 month warranty, do you want to let your disabled projector recover?? for any one who need color wheel, you can freely write down your projector model, perhaps some one have this parts will help you to find it.

you can doubt with this pleasantly surprised, but you can fully try to do as i said.

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.

I need a Color Wheel for a Dell 2300MP Projector


sending it in for service will cost about $300-400 to fix as I've already gotten quotes - I figure if I can get a color wheel for < $100 it's worth it to me since I can install it myself. The dell is still a nice projector... if I sell it for parts it's worth $100 or less... if I fix it to work it's worth $400-500... so I figure "why not try"
Buy another projector. Your current dell model is not worth repairing IMO.

An optoma h70 is a fantastic replacement that will provide far superior performance.

another idea is to try craigs list and look for a dell for a projector for parts.

good luck

I HAVE A SAMSUNG SP46L6HV REAR PROJECTION HD DLP TV AND IT HAD MAKING A NOISE BUT NOT THAT LOUD AND THEN ONE DAY IT WAS ON AS NOMAL AND JUST WENT OFF , MY HUBBY TOOK THE BACK OFF AND SAID THE LAMP WAS...


Before it went out, was the sound like a fan or high pitched in nature?

Lamp can be removed (is is customer replaceable) to see if shattered inside.

I suspect a bad color wheel, which is not hard to replace. See attached photo of color wheel.

Examine lamp and if not shattered do not buy one to try.

I am here to help you for free.

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.

Our samsung tv was making loud noises. the color would get distorted and it would turn off on its own. after unplugging it and plugging it back in, we watched it for a short while and we heard a shatter...


That was probably your color wheel being destroyed. This repair is not for the DIY'er you need to see a tech for thione believe me... The light engine housing needs to be removed justy above the color wheel and a new color wheel needs to be installed. Wheels are not cheap 2-3 hundred dollars and you would be surprised how much tear-down the tech will have to do to get at the wheel housing. But believe me it's well worth it...
If you have any problem locating a good reputable tech for the repair you might try NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealers Assn.) or let me know about what city/state you're located in and I can recommend someone.
Good Luck!

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.

http://www.geekfest.info/DV10/dv10.html

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
