Yes. part number 525-0146-00. you can get it through any infocus authorized service center. some won't sell parts to you. try av solutions in rochester, ny. i know they will.

to replace the colorwheel:
remove the 4 brass and 4 silver screws from the bottom and the 2 silver screws from the back. through the top vent on the back panel and using a flat head screwdriver, unclip the 3 clips holding the back panel on. once removed, unplug the 2 wire harnesses. remove the top and front panel. now unplug the large wire harness and remove all the brass screws on the 2 power supply boards (also the screw for the ground wire). there is a black clip in the middle of the larger power board. remove the boards. now remove the brass screws holding the metal plate on. once removed, unplug the flat ribbon cable (for the colorwheel). now facing the front end, remove the lamp and the 4 screws holding the lamp housing (with fans) on to the bottom case. remove the tiny black screw on the small circuit board and remove the board. now you can get to the colorwheel. there are 2 small black screws holding the bracket. pull the ribbon cable through from under the fan. replace with new colorwheel and reverse the instructions. the only difference, remove the front panel from the top by undoing the clips. good luck!

Just replaced burnt out bulb in Infocus 4805 projector. Great picture with new bulb but only black and white. Is this a bulb issue or something else in the projector?


This is most likely the color wheel. When the bulb blows, it can damage the color wheel. The color wheel is a wheel composed of thin layers of colored glass that spins in front of the projected image. It is possible to repair it with super glue, but the best way is to try to find a new one to buy.

Everything that is supposed to be black is showing


Hi,It sounds like a problem with the color wheel or DMD board. The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will hear ,humming,buzzing,high pitch noises ,you might also experiment color distortion ,black and white picture. This is how the DMD works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

My InFocus 4805 SP projector is showing just black and white


If you have any video at all and it's only Black and white there is a 99.99% chance that your Color Wheel has lost all of it's glass color filters.
You can confirm this by removing the lamp. then look straight into the projector where the lamp was and you should see the color wheel of colored glass segments (Red, Green and blue) I believe you won't see them because they came off of the wheel.
Also if you lift up the projector and turn it around in various angles and you will hear the small pieces of broken glass from the color wheel.
Unfortunately you will need to take it to an authorized service center for repair. Be prepared to spend upwards of $300 for the repair.

Cheers

Mitsubishi HD 50" rear projection tv is only showing picture in black and white. What is the problem?


Is sounds like to need to go to SETUP and set the unit to color. Also, weak signals will cause the unit to switch to B/W. Try using OTHER inputs (like DVD) to see if you still have no color. If no color, it could just be a SETUP problem...or..(ugh!) you have lost your color wheel or related circutry. (no easy fix)

Samsung HLN5065W only displays black & white picture


Hello,This problem denotes a defective color wheel, I would not suggest that you attempt to change it becuse of the risk of causing more damage. I would advise that you have the Tv repaired by a qualified TV technician, due to problems I have seen when repairing sets like this due to improper reinstallation of the color wheel.I hope this helps,Thank you,Shuttle83http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

Black and white picture only


The color wheel is not the problem. If the spinning color wheel is impaired in its RPMs it will cause picture distortion, not black and white picture. If the color wheel looses any of its color fins, like if it is broken, there will be a loud vibrating noise inside the tv which you did not mention. Also if the color wheel is broken and doesn't spin, the tv will not start up.

The likely problem is on the digital control board or the power supply and should be referred to a local repair shop for repair.

There is an outside chance that you will receive color if you experiment with using all of the different input ports to see if you can find one that will bring back color.

I heard a pop and now the projector only shows black and white.


The color wheel has failed in youtr projector. There are 4 pieces of glass in the color wheel which fit togeter in a "pie" formation and they are red, blue, yellow & clear. This wheel is spun by a motor. The glass is glued to the motor's hub, and, when it fails the glass segments are thown off the hub. This gives you a B&W picture because all of the light is allowed to shine through the optics all of the time. Replace the color wheel with Toshiba part no: 23125963. It will be about $65. No soldering is involved, just use care with the ribbon cable to the motor. You will need a no. 2 phillips screwdriver and a set of jeweles screwdrivers to do this.

HLN617W1 SAMSUNG BLACK AND WHITE FLICKING PICTURE


That is likely the color wheel assembly and not for the DIY'er... Find a reputable tech to take it to and s/he should have it on it's feet in no time. They will need to order the color wheel Part # Bp96-00250a and costs about $108.00 plus shipping and maybe core then your labor. But it's a well worth it repair...
