It is but they don't make it easy to get at as I believe you have to remove the whole Light Engine to get at it. They would prefer a qualified technician would do this type of repair.

SOURCE: How to Access Color Wheel on Toshiba 46HM95

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.

Ebay carries this lamp for about $160. Tech prices are falling fast, you can get a similar sized lcd or plasma for around $900 brand new at sams or costco.

SOURCE: I recently replaced the lamp

This is problem of DMD chip that generates picture/ image in this tv and DMD chip is not available separately so complete light engine will be replaced to fix this issue. It is bit costly fix.
Click Discount-Merchant link to view light engine images and they offer required light engine for $330 and local tv repairman will help you to replace it because it needs expertise and skills.
Hope these info will help you.

I have a Toshiba 50HM67 DLP that is "strobing" after replacing the bulb

Actually it could be the color wheel issue not spinning at the correct speed. They are suppose to spin at 60 HZ. My suspicion is that it is slowing down so you are seeing with your eye the slower speed.

I have a toshiba 50hm67 the picture is prefect dont think the build is bad, but i have a humming coming out of the tv what could that be and how can i fix it.

If it is a high pitched or even fan like sound it may be the color wheel in that set which if I remember is not sold except with a complete light engine, do some research on that model for color wheel.

DLP TV starts to loose picture after 1 - 1/2 hours of use

This tv has a 3 board video path. Analog main pcb --->Digital main pcb --->DMD pcb. see which inputs have the problem to narrow it down. if only some inputs, suspect analog board. if everything flickers(all inputs and menu), suspect the dmd or engine. you can see the lamp shine out the back. if the lamp is flickering, suspect lamp or ballast.
