Its fairly easy. Remove the back of the TV. You'll need torx head screwdrivers as RCA uses them exclusively on their TVs. The color wheel is mounted on the light engine to the left of the lamp assembly and has three screws holding it in place. There are also two connectors which have to be undone. You may have to transfer them from the old to the new one. On rare occassions, an alignment of the wheel speed is necessary. If that's the case, you'll need to contact an RCA authorized service center to have this done.

WHINING SOUND


More likely it is the color wheel this set uses---it is located inside the optical engine---part number for it:

267888This part is no longer available from RCA but is available on several sites on the internet (google the part number)

The wheel will when going bad sometimes make a fan like noise or even a high pitched whine.

Check out the sites on the net that sell this for price and decide if you want to attempt to replace it or if you have to have a shop do it for you.

Let me know if you have any questions or need advice.

REGARDS, SD TECH

50" RCA DLP color wheel replacement procedure


Mine started to howl last year, I sprayed out the motor using carb cleaner / lubricant. Its been running fine for over a year since.

My guess is, the bushing gets plugged with dust particals. If you catch it as soon as it starts to squeek, the carb cleaner trick may work for you too.

The color wheel can make a whinning sound for sure, However it should not continue to whine after shutting it off. That sounds more like the fan used to cool the lamp, as that will continue to run after the set is shut off. How soon does the whinning start when you push power? Let me know I should be able to help you out. DLPs are my specialty
