After about 30-60 minutes TV starts to hum and picture gets distorted, could this be the color wheel...???

Sounds like a sync problem due to color wheel speed. clean and lubricate color wheel motor with tiny amount of Z-Max lubricant (liquid Buckey balls, available at Wal-Mart), on each bearing. make sure wheel is free-wheeling and turns easily. Should cure problem. If the color wheel is in good shape, there is a power supply problem, which may be due to dried out electrolytic capacitors or a regulator that's failing. Troubleshooting or controller board replacement may be needed. Regards.

My RCA rear projection wont turn on the light flashes when i push the power button, i got it to turn on once and i had a vertical line running through it. and colors a little distorted, i tried in the menu...

The flashing light opposed to a solid pwer indicator light usually means it needs to be serviced. I wouldn't reccomend home repairs, but repairs sometimes cost more than the product. You should compare prices and such before making your move.

Unplug the TV for maybe 10 minutes, then turn it on. Sometimes these units simply need to recycle. If that doesn't work, you've likely got serious problems.

No Picture

Did you have color problems in past? Most of these sets have convergence problems. Amps goes out. But you should have seen some type of distortion from color, red,blue, green. If no color problems then maybe vertical ouput out or horizontal output bad.

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
