    I'm looking to find a rca color wheel 267888 for my tv, & i can't find it anywhere online except for partstore.com but they are backordered, can anyone help?

  • tbcompdesign Feb 07, 2009

    I've also been waiting with a backorder from multiple vendors for this exact part. A few repair shops I've tried sourcing the part from tell me it's pretty likely that RCA is not actually going to make the part and not to hold my breath.
    @Trableshooter - I've disassembled the TV and removed the colorwheel. What did you do to rebuild the bearings and make it work right again. Mine is simply just begining to squeel and send the color off once in a while, so I know the structure of everything should still be intact. I just don't see a way to get to the bearings once the color wheel comes out in it's silver "heatsink" casing??

Want to know if color wheel can be repaired?


Unfortunately, you can't replace just the bearing. You would have to replace the complete color wheel. Here's a link for a major parts distributor so you can get an idea on priceing:

50" RCA DLP color wheel replacement procedure


Mine started to howl last year, I sprayed out the motor using carb cleaner / lubricant. Its been running fine for over a year since.

My guess is, the bushing gets plugged with dust particals. If you catch it as soon as it starts to squeek, the carb cleaner trick may work for you too.
