Trying to locate RCA part 268175, color wheel, for a HD61THW263

Trying to locate RCA part 268175, color wheel.
I've been searching internet for 2 days. All the major sites are out. The smaller sites say they can get it in 4-6 days, but from actually calling, I'm told they don't know where to get them anymore.

Anyone have ideas?
Can't find any used parts sites...

Probably looking in all the wrong places.

This part is no longer available from RCA and there is no substitute listed. Your only option at this point is to try local service shops that may have one in stock.

Hd50lpw166 my tv the sound is good but the picture is not view and wear sound back the tv let me know where is the problem thanks for you helps soon


Sounds like a color wheel.

Color wheel problems are common with the RCA's. Those have been selling for around $125 - 145 from RCA. The lamp will cost you another $170 - 200. So you're looking a spending at least another $300 in parts IF that's really all that's wrong with that model. The lamp is easy enough to replace but the color wheel will require the front cabinet/screen to come off to access it. It's bolted in with 2 screw and is top loaded. The worst part with the RCA wheels is trying to keep the rubber gasket that comes with it aligned as you drop the new wheel assy into place.

As for manuals? There's not much to that model. The power supply board, System board (exchange only), ballast*(exchange) and the engine. Only the power board would be considered serviceable, everything else, including the ballast is replace only.

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.

If the picture comes on a its blue the lamp is ok. If you dont't get a menu then you really have a problem. A technician can bring up test patterns on this set that can tell you what the problem is.

REMOTE NOT WORKING NO AUDIO AND NO PICTURE


Most times this unit goes dead because either the lamp is bad or need to be reseated. Pull the from cover off to find the lamp. First pull out the lamp, clean the contacts on the lamp by just wiping them with a soft cloth and reseat the lamp. Re-assemble and see if that helps. If not you will need to replace the lamp.
