    I have taken the color wheel out and put some graphite on it, but there was no difference in humming noise

    I contacted sharp and explained that my lamp had just been replaced and 3days after I installed it, the color wheel goes bad.
    So Sharp offered me a discount on 4 different new and refurbt 52" aqua models.
    Prices for a brand new one ranges between $1380-$1555 and refurbished $$970-$ 1yr warranty and refurb 30days.
    I went online, of course, and checked out the models and prices and found out that their so-called discount is very lame.. I found 2 of 4 models at B&H for $100 less than their direct Sharp price.. I wouldn't consider refurb since they only give me 30 day warranty.
    Sharp has disappointed me and I will probably never buy a sharp tv again.
    Bad color wheel and nowhere to find the part.

I have the original color wheel avaible if you need one let me know -

Posted on Jun 06, 2008


I have a Sharp 56dr650. The color wheel bearing failed. Sharp cares not for its customers and won't even respond to my pleads for help in obtaining the replacement. So, with that said, I went to ebay and bought a vizio color wheel (Omega TV in Hollywood, FL). Color wheel is incorrect and colors are all blue as is, so I pulled the color wheel off and did the same from the old one-BIG note, the wheels are glass and fragile, DO NOT BREAK the old color wheel! I viced the old bearing and carefully worked the shaft out of the bearing (it is snapped into the bearing). The vice distorted the old bearing but it was trash anyway. The new bearing, I broke the new color wheel off and viced the shaft. I then pulled the old bearing from the wheel. I then carefully push the old shaft and color wheel into the new bearing (you will know when it snaps in place) asserting preasure ONLY on the metal center hub with my thumb. I had to file a new slot on the cast housing as the ribbon connector is about 1/2 inch shorter on the new bearing. I installed and it all works great!!! Saved from tossing a $2,000 plus tv out! SHAME ON SHARP! Never buy another Sharp product!

Sharp 56DR650- Does anyone know how to remove the shaft on which the color wheel is mounted, from the color wheel assembly, without damaging the wheel or motor?

Why are you changing the color wheel? Color wheels are factory built and cannot be taking apart. You have to replace as an assy.

Projector turns on but does not illuminate bulb is good

may be either the colorwheel or the ballast. if you hear the colorwheel spin up (high-pitched whir), replace the ballast. if you don't hear it, replace the colorwheel.

I searched for over a month for this custmer and had no luck at all finaly the ony option was to get the light engine from Sharps board exchange for $600.00 that is beter than the 1300.00 that Andrews wanted for it. Then found that RCA used the same wheel in one of there DLP's and sure enough this part number had been discontinued and the entire set has crush and exchange order on it as well.
