I'm sorry, I don't know my model number but I have a Phillips HDTV 56" rear projection tv. It was bought in 2002 and now the picture is kinda fuzzy and the color seems to have faded. I've tried adjusting everything and I even took the back off and cleaned the bulbs & glass but no luck. Is it worth fixing?

Re: color & sharpness problem
Sounds like you need Coolant fluid change, this is the fluid under the Lenses. If you have not done this before I suggest that you get some one who is qualified. Because if the coolant leaks and get to the circuit board, there goes your tv. You need new fluid in the 3 CRT's. If you look down with the back off and looking in the lense, you would see contamination in the fluid, this needs to be taken out and cleaned and replaced with new fluid. The fluid can come from places like MCM electronics corp.

If the color wheel is making noise then its best to replace it and not try to repair it, Unfortunatley the wheel is not available by itself and a complete optic block part # 9NK3797086200...Be careful when taking the bock apart as it runs $900.00
Hi - wanted to let you know that I have the same problem and I contacted Sharp (800) 237-4277. They offered me a prorated exchange. Select #1 prompt for Operations and then they will create a case number if you don't already have one and then send you over to the Disbatch Dept. They are picking up my 56" TV and are selling me a LC52"D65U for under $450 current retail value of the new TV $1900. Give them a call and see if they can work out a deal for you too. The whole transaction will take 7 - 10 days. Good Luck!
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!
your picture processor is broken. we have the same tv, after 1 year problem started. we got a tv tech out and he looked at it and said it would cost $1800 to fix and this is after we bought a $400 bulb from sharp. this problem is in many of the same tv's of this exact model as we've invstigated and sharp is unwilling to help. there should be a classaction suit or recall for this exact tv.do not buy bulb , it will not work
