    I have a hd50lpw164. I to thought the fan was making a noise, come to find out the noise is in the area where the bulb points in. Am I correct to assume it is the color wheel? I haven't been able to find a replacement part and living in a rural area it's hard to find a repair shop. Any suggestions? Thanks

    I have a sony grand wega 42. After a recent power outage the power returned and several of my electronic devices were fried. My Sony wega 42 now has a discolored splotch on the screen that seems to be growing, the splotch looks like a bullseye target sometimes and others like a cloud, it is more apparenet on a green backround. Just wondered what it might be and if Im looking at major expense?

As a technician i dont feel the color wheel is a difficult repair. HOWEVER ..color wheel relacement means sometimes depending on model removal of light engine. which means you can get into alignment issues. then once the color wheel is replaced then it too has to be alligned.

Color wheel for 73


Color wheel is not sold as a part--only the entire optical light engine for the model indicated and it is a small chance it will cause this kind of problem----possible but not likely.

Buy a cheaper color wheel !


Sorry, the color wheel is only available in the Light Engine Assembly. You can not purchase it as a single part. You will have to purchase the engine and replace it to repair your TV. PN: 23405476 it runs about $450 with a $200 core. You may find it cheaper... I don't think it is readily available... Best of luck to you, I hope this was helpful.

My Samsung 56 DLP picture lost is color and is making a buzzing noise which I suspect is the color wheel. The picture is now black


you need to change the color wheel

Samsung's digital light projection (DLP) televisions use a spinning color wheel to create the colors that are seen on the screen. If the color wheel becomes misaligned during use, it will become damaged and have to be replaced. Replacing the color wheel on a Samsung DLP television can be done at home, once a compatible-sized color wheel has been bought from a TV supply store.Replacing the color wheel yourself will void any Samsung warranty that might be in place, but is the only solution for getting the TV working again in as short a time as possible.
Put on the anti-static grounding strap to keep static electricity from damaging the internal components of the Samsung DLP TV. Turn the Samsung around so that the back is facing you. Make sure the Samsung is unplugged from the AC socket.
2
Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove all of the screws from the back panel. Put the screws aside. Pull off the back panel.
3
Loosen the two screws from each side of the projection bulb's case. Pull the projection bulb out. Put the projection bulb aside. Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the two screws from the left side panel. Pull the side panel and the circuit board attached to it out carefully and put it down so that the cables attached to it have not been pulled out.
4
Take a picture of the power cable's position with the digital camera so that you can put it back correctly later. Pull the power cable out from inside of the Samsung's case so that the center panel is free to be pulled out. Remove the two large headed screws from the center panel with the Phillips screwdriver. Remove the top two screws holding the panel to the plastic case using the Phillips screwdriver.
5
Slowly slide the center unit out a few inches. Take a picture of the projector lens' positioning with the digital camera so that you can put it back correctly later. Unplug the two cables from the left side of the center panel. Unscrew the sensor switch using the Phillips screwdriver. Slide the center panel completely out of the Samsung and put it down on the clean cloth. Blow off the color wheel assembly with the compressed air.
6
Use the tweezers to remove the green plug from the top of the color wheel cover. Use the tweezers to remove the two cables at the side that are coming from the color wheel. Use the Phillips jeweler's screwdriver to remove the screws from the top, front and back of the color wheel cover. Slide the color wheel cover straight up to expose the color wheel.
7
Use the Phillips screwdriver to remove the three screws holding the color wheel to the color wheel assembly. Lift the color wheel up and out of the color wheel assembly and discard it.
8
Position the replacement color wheel in the color wheel assembly. Reassemble the color wheel and reassemble the color wheel assembly. Put the color wheel assembly back into position in the rear of the Samsung DLP TV. Reassemble the Samsung DLP TV. Plug the Samsung DLP TV back in for power. Turn the Samsung on and enjoy seeing the colors displayed properly again now that you have replaced the color wheel.

Television began making a loud audio noise and the picture went purple


Does your TV make a "whining, whirling, clicking, or humming noise?" If the TV have the infamous blinking lights problem , it's most likely a problem with your color wheel. The Samsung BP96-00674A color wheels spin anywhere from 6,000 to 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM’s)--It is one of the few consumable parts in your Samsung TV. The average life expectancy from our data logging shows the Samsung color wheels are fairly reliable with a MEAN average of 5-8 years. Its basically in charge of creating the colors .God bless you here;s how to take it out and replace it: http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/samsung/bp96-01579a.php

Color wheel - light engine assembly is bad, must be replaced. New assemblies not available, try ebay. You''ll need technical expertise or you'll need to hire a tv service shop. MOst shops will NOT sel you a used color wheel assembly, but they will install one if you buy it.
