Colors displaying wrong on Toshiba DLP 56HMX96

My Toshiba DLP 56HMX96 has been displaying false colors (for example, something that should be blue comes out greenish and faces of people are pink). Is it 100% for sure that the light engine is the problem and needs to be replaced? If it is, please show me where to look for the part and how to replace it because I want to do this by myself. Your help would be greatly appreciated. My email address is

    Thank you mjbartel for all your help. I ordered a light engine refurbished from partstore through eBay. swapping the old one with the new won was simpler than I thought, and it turns out you only need to remove the smaller back panel and not the entire back of the tv. word of notice, the light engine did not come with a lamp, so make sure you use your old lamp to put back into the new light engine. i found this out the hard way when i installed everything and turned it one to see a black screen. anyways everything is working fine now and i hope this light engine lasts more than the just over two years the old one did.
    thanks again, mjbartel

    If your getting pinkish or greeninsh streaks in the peoples faces sort of giving it like a color bleed look then its 95% percent sure its the color wheel that's defective and you can only get the light engine I believe the color wheel does not come separate from the light engine like Samsung does. Anymore problems send a comment back thanks !

You have probably have installed the wrong lamp or you installed a third party/off brand Lamp. If that is the case anything other than a Factory replacement Lamp will have a different color temprature. Install a Lamp that is listed from the manufacture.

Colors look smeared on screen

If the colour wheel on your projector is out of sync, you will get incorrect colours.
If it is out of focus, focus the lens assembly, if misaligned colours, perform a re-convergence procedure at a fully equipped work shop with a qualified Toshiba engineer.
