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

Colors flickering


Easiest and cheapest to just fix it yourself! The problem is with dust/debris accumulation on the color wheel. Very simple to fix. Remove the lamp and you can see the color wheel. You may be able to clean it from that hole using compressed air. If not, you will have to take the outer casing off. A film will build up on the color wheel in certain environments, smoking, dusty areas, placement next to ceiling fans. To remove the film build up, use a q-tip with denatured alcohol. start from the inner part of the color wheel and work the q-tip upward towards the outer part of the wheel. you may have to remove the cover plate to the color wheel to clean the other side( side facing the lens). Not a big deal and will bring your projector back to its original vivid colors. As for LCD projectors, they are only good for one lamp. You will never get the full use out of a second lamp as the lcd panels degrade fairly quickly. Usually the blue lcd panel is the first to go. A DLP projector can last you for years and many replacement bulbs. Replacing a color wheel is fairly easy. Replacing lcd panels, not going to happen as they have to be calibrated and are very expensive. P.S. If you are a smoker and you do it in the same area as your projector, you will get a tar build-up inside the projector. The tar will accumulate on EVERYTHING and eventually lead to overheating as well as color wheel issues. The reason I mention this is I just repaired a Optoma EP721 (very similar to the HD65) that had this issue.

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.

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
