Question about Toshiba 52HM95 52" HDTV Projection Television
I am hearing a noise in the back of tv and I know it is the color wheel I am just wondering is there anyway I could replace it on my own or do I need to take it to someone and get it fixed. I just recently had to get my lamp fixed in the tv, I didn't know that it goes out so frequently. After I had it fixed I realized, once I called toshiba, that I had an extended warranty on the lamp and that it only takes about 5 or 10 minutes to install, this is after I already spent 500 dollars to a tv repair man in the area to repair it. So I really can't afford to pay 500 more dollars to repair the color wheel I mean I could just purchase another tv for as much money as I would be putting in it. What is the price of the color wheel and is it difficult to put in? If I had to take it to a tv repair shop what should I be looking at as far as the price? I don't want someone to get over on me again like he did with the lamp, charging me 127 dollars for installation time. If you have any solutions or know anything about the prices or anyone in the north carolina area that could install it for a reasonable price let me know?
A color wheel is not so difficult to put in - it's dismantling the unit to get to the color wheel.. While $500 seems to me a little bit high for your area it might have been about average and $127 for labor is probably a pretty good deal if he did this as an in-home repair figuring his time installing the new lamp into the housing and the housing into the unit, plus travel time to and from the shop.
The noise you're experiencing could be the fan and not the color wheel.. Easiest way to tell is take the back off and as the set is turned off unplug the flat ribbon cable going to the color wheel. If the noise quits immediately it's color wheel if not guess what - it's the cooling fan...
A shop would be the only I would know to advise you to have this repaired - I'm a CET myself and it's a pretty difficult task taking one of those DLP format projectors apart. And I've been at this more than twenty years. But you can test whether or not that's your problem and go from there.. If you have to have the color wheel replaced have the tech look into having it rebuilt and see if Tri-State Module services that wheel.
A good way to research techs in your area is with NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealers Association) here's a link:
Hope this helps!
