Optoma color wheel issue

I just installed the color wheel and it isn't showing all the colors. Rather, it looks dark or bluish. I saw that you recommended reseting the wheel rate (or something). How would I go about doing that?

Any help is appreciated.

Hi Brad

You'll have to go into the service menu and check if all the colours are showing the same percentage.

We normally set all of them on 50%

    *How* to get into the service menu might actually have been a helpful bit of information, but otherwise, this suggestion, while correct, is ultimately useless . . .

HD70 DLP Projector: The projector is used and about a year old. It cur...

Did this start occurring after you replaced the lamp?

The reason I ask is I had the same issue after changing the lamp and it was caused because when I took out the old lamp I noticed dust in the lamp housing which I attempted to blow away.

This caused the problem because some dust got further into the projector, specifically around the color wheel. I sorted it out by taking the projector apart following the instructions here:

(note my HD70 was out of warranty, if yours is not, I would recommend contacting Optoma to get it fixed).

Follow the above instructions to step 14 and then locate the color wheel which is at the front of the projector behind a dark gray, plastic type square shaped cover.

You have to be very careful here, but remove the color wheel (there is one screw holding it in place) - note it

Easiest and cheapest to just fix it yourself! The problem is with dust/debris accumulation on the color wheel. Very simple to fix. Remove the lamp and you can see the color wheel. You may be able to clean it from that hole using compressed air. If not, you will have to take the outer casing off. A film will build up on the color wheel in certain environments, smoking, dusty areas, placement next to ceiling fans. To remove the film build up, use a q-tip with denatured alcohol. start from the inner part of the color wheel and work the q-tip upward towards the outer part of the wheel. you may have to remove the cover plate to the color wheel to clean the other side( side facing the lens). Not a big deal and will bring your projector back to its original vivid colors. As for LCD projectors, they are only good for one lamp. You will never get the full use out of a second lamp as the lcd panels degrade fairly quickly. Usually the blue lcd panel is the first to go. A DLP projector can last you for years and many replacement bulbs. Replacing a color wheel is fairly easy. Replacing lcd panels, not going to happen as they have to be calibrated and are very expensive. P.S. If you are a smoker and you do it in the same area as your projector, you will get a tar build-up inside the projector. The tar will accumulate on EVERYTHING and eventually lead to overheating as well as color wheel issues. The reason I mention this is I just repaired a Optoma EP721 (very similar to the HD65) that had this issue.

Color wheel sounds like a buzz saw. Fan is quiet because there is no noise in the cool-down mode. Can this be replaced by user?

Baily, I have had my HC1500U color wheel replaced two times due to the color wheel's unpleasant "buzz saw" effect showing up every few thousand hours of usage. It is happening again for the third time and I am still within Coscto's warranty so I am going to have it replaced again...will never buy a DLP projector again...too many moving parts that can break!

Would love to be able to replace it myself if you ever find a place that sells the color wheel.
