    That sounds good to me but the original glass did not break like tempered glass breaks (small tiny pieces) It came out in two cleanly broken pieces which seems like ordinary glass...Can this be try...thanks

    Lamp went "pop" and upon removing it, I too noticed the cracked heat shield glass in my set before the color wheel (?). Can't help but wonder if it's not the culprit behind the dark, translucent ~6" corner on the the top left of the tv screen. Any luck replacing it?

    Ordinary glass may be used, but I believe that this is what caused the original to break...accordianman

RCA HD50LPW42. Sound so loud it sounds like a jet engine coming from TV (very loud whining sound). I assume this is my color-wheel, but I'm not sure.Turns off when TV turns off.


You need a replacement color wheel or have yours rebuilt since the RCA color wheels are on nationwide back order. You can get your wheel rebuilt at the following link

My RCA is screeching


To install the color wheel, turn off and unplug the tv, take off the lower back casing (17 star type screws), remove the lamp door, remove the lower back casing. Look just left of the lamp you will see 3 smaller star type screws near a small circuit board (which is on the color wheel), remove those screws unplug cable from color wheel, unplug other end of 2nd cable from tv circuit board (just to the upper left nearest to the color wheel.

All you have to do is install the color wheel, plug in both cables, put the back on and place the lamp door back in its position, the lamp door pushes in a lillte blue lever which allows the lamp bulb to light up.

I'm in the process of doing the same myself on my RCA same model. Where did you buy the color wheel from?

The lamp on my Samsung HLP5085 burned out last night with a loud pop. I followed online instructions to remove it and orderd a new lamp. Then, I noticed that a small 1"x1" piece of glass...


It's doubtful that buying a new color wheel will solve that cracked glass problem. However, if you are going to buy a new color wheel you may as well purchase a new television as they are extremely expensive and most new units do not use them. I suspect the piece of glass may be protecting the lamp from anything on the inside of the TV or preventing anything from getting to the color wheel so it may work out just fine the way it is. I would suggest reporting back after you have replaced the bulb. In other words, don't order anything else just yet.
