Question about RCA HD61LPW42 61" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a RCA HD61LPW42 TV, I replaced the color wheel but now the picture looks polarized and alittle fuzzy. I did read on here about removing a 2 wire jumper but I couldn't find it anywhere where he said to look. Any other ideas out there on fixing this problem?
Hey there! thanks for using Fixya.com!!
You probably replaced a bearing colored wheel, and maybe it was replaced with a bearingless. Try to look inside your TV, at the back of the engine or the light engine...it is the silver box in front and left of the color wheel... there must be a jumper...that connects the 2 wires from outside or coming out towards the bottom, just recessed little hole. You should remove the jumper if the color wheel was replaced with the air bearing type. Just be careful to remove it, just a bit gently with a pair of nose pliers, and pull it out very very slowly.
I hope it will restore a normal color veiew but maybe there will be some other adjustments that you need to do. I suggest that you check the manual for further information and clarification.
However, if its still doesn't work, I advised that you should contact your technician who specialized with, or if you still have the warranty card, it should be covered and you will not lose any penny. I know it is very simple and handy to do but, we need to be careful on this, we dont want to do more unnecessary things.
Good luck! cheers! don't forget to mark!!!
I hope I helped you a bit! take care!

The jumper is on Samsung, not on RCAs the Jumper is locate on the board behind the color wheel assembly, but that is a different TV.
Moreover when it is the jumper then red and blue colors are reversed, not polarized.
In your case sounds more like the color wheel is not mounted correctly.
