Question about Toshiba 50HM66 52" Television
The color wheel is not behind the screen, it in the optical engine. Most likely thats your issue.

Let us say you cannot wait for the lamp to go down in price $25-$50 a piece.
Put it in your driveway and draw a little circle on the center of the screen. Call some kids stand 20 feet away and exercise with a toy gun of their choosing.
When it 's all done, I mean completely obliterated, gone, gone, gone; then drag it to the curb and let it wait with satisfaction for the garbage truck.
That is what you do with **** like this Toshiba, Sony, Panasonic and others create so you can sleep at night with their hands in your pockets.
I just can't believe than I wasted $2,500 on this thing.
It's unbelievable how people stop thinking nowadays. I just bought my first and last big screen.

I bought a used 46hm95 but it had a greenish "band" that streched from the upper right corner to the lower left corner. It was only noticeable on a white or light colored background, which is why I overlooked it when I tested out the TV.
I took out the bulb and shined a flashlight into the color wheel. I could see a fingerprint smudge on it. I took off the lower rear plastic panel. the rear is split into two section (the light engine is on the right. You'll have to unscrew a metal guard (three scerws), then disconnect the wires coming from the left section, and then unscrew the plastic guard that protects the lens. Then unscrew the light engine (two screws) and slide it out carefully (you don't have to take it completely out, just far enough to reach the screws to the color wheel covers). There are two covers protecting the color wheel, one plastic and one metal. Unscrew the plastic cover first than the four screws to the metal cover. I left the color wheel in place while I cleaned it with a microfiber cloth. I did pull the glass square in front of the color wheel and wiped that down too.
I put everything back together, and now the picture is perfect.
Things to remember are:
*Keep track of the screws and where they belong, as you remove them so you'll remember where they go when it's time to put things back together.
*Mark the wire connectors from any wire you disconnect in case you forget where they go.
*Be gentle with the color wheel and the glass square because they are fragile.
Hope this helps.
