    Thanks!, I still hear a noise after turning the set off. If the problem is a fan, how labor intensive and expensive will it be for me to replace it?

    I have the same light flickering problem. I notice it mainly when im playing video games on my xbox 360. I thought it might be the lamp as when i replaced the lamp the last time the flicker stopped but then started again after the lamp was less than a year old. I do hear the fan slowing down after i power the tv down, but this normal isnt it? A fan will not instantly stop in any electronic device that requires one, Ive read alot and seen people saying it could be the DMD board or SEINE CBA. I would really like to know where the issue stems from so i may get it fixed. The flicker comes and goes, it will do it for about 30 minutes to an hour then stop for several hours then start again. If there is any accurate information on this problem please provide it. I spent alot of money on this tv and I really like the tv, the picture quality is incredible except the flickering light! I have no other problems with the tv nor have i ever.

When you turn off the set listen carefully... If the noise stops abruptly it's the color wheel, if it winds down a bit after you press power off it's a bad fan..

Tv went grayscreen, flickering. turned off, then

When you had gray screen and flickering you had only one problem - color wheel. After "putting everything together" you have totally different problem, caused by multiple possibilities like: forgotten connectors, cut/jammed cables/wires, lamp not being inserted properly, lamp door not being set properly, disconnected color wheel, etc. Try to open rear cover and redo what you have done. Remove optical block, check everything visually and slowly put everything back. If still no luck - then only skilled TV repairman may (or may not) help.

TV grinding noise

A grinding noise in that model usaully means the light engine is defective or it could be the color wheel. But light engine is most suspect as there have been some issues with the light engine assemblies

Missing Color.

the color wheel may spin but if you hear noise when it spins it's bad. the jumper is used when replacing one type of color wheel for a nother type. so donot remove jumper unless you've replaced the color wheel and the picture is bad. if the color wheel is good replace the DMD board. if the DMD is not available replace the optical engine.
