This TV set is a 2004 and there is no yellow sticker on sheilding to indicate jumper plug position. I removed sheild and on pcb found test points had been soldered together, no pins on this pcb. Removed solder bridge and tried picture again and now it is working as normal, good color, no noises from color wheel, and good picture. This set was miss leading because access to pcb thru sheilding was blocked.
Hope this may help others out there.

I'm not sure you received the correct color wheel. Do you have anything left of the shattered color wheel to compare it to the new one? Seems if you got the correct wheel then the colors should of been the same. Color wheels spin at the same rate of 60Hz. The only reason why you would get the wrong color is that the color on the wheel is in the wrong placed at the right time. I would see if you can get a wheel the same # as your original one.
Youve probably got something gone wrong with your dlp chip with the million mirrors on it, see when the mirror tilts away from the light you get a black shade- tilted toward light lighter shade now throw the color wheel in which gives you color youve got green and blue so the color wheel is fine. Now how to replace chip? Dont. Look for a digital board or video board replace that and that should take care of ya. Good luck hope this helped ya-
Heres the best way to set a phillips screen controls. Go into the picture controls and set picture or contrast to roughly 75%, then set brightness to 50% and then set the color level completely off. Then adjust the screen with the 3 color controls untill you recieve the best black and white picture as possible. If you are unable to achieve a good black and white picture change the coolant in the green and blue tubes. But if you can get a good black and white picture stop there then turn your color level back up and the picture should be correct. Let me know if you need further assistance.
Most times color does not to be reset. If you have a very ugly green or blue picture, then you did not pull the jumper on the dm board. This jumper must be removed when a bering type color wheel has be replaced with a new airless bering color wheel.
I also replaced the color wheel in my EP739 after the old one disintegrated suddenly. Colours were then all over the place. Actually, it looked like each colour channel was displaying all the colours of the rainbow!
Here is the procedure I used to solve the problem - maybe not as elegant as Marrie's solution, but it will not cause any damage, will most likely solve the problem, and you will be able to get everything back to the way it was if it doesn't work:
Have the projector running and displaying a stationary picture. The right sort of picture to use is one that has a full range of brightness values from near-black to peak white. I used my lap-top as the source. Also, this way you can compare the projector's picture with the picture on the lap-top.
Press the power button once. "Power off the lamp" dialogue box appears. Hold down the left arrow button until the service menu appears (takes about 8 seconds).
Using the up/down arrow buttons, scroll down to "Color Setting" and press "enter".
Scroll up to "Color Wheel Index". Make a note of the existing setting for later reference. You can change the Index setting over a range of 100 to 550 by holding down the left/right arrow buttons. As the setting changes, the colour rendition will slowly change, and at some point the colours will come right. Note that the changes are quite slow. Find the lower and higher settings where colour aberrations just start to appear, and set the Index mid-way between.
If this doesn't fix the problem, return the Index setting to original. My original setting was 354 and the new setting was 461.
I do not advise touching any other settings in the service menu unless you have access to a service manual and know what you are doing.
First of all, make sure that you have the colors of the component cable matched correctly. You can switch the Pr and Pb cable and still get a picture although in the wrong color.
Secondly, go to the TV menu... the menu should still be in color. If it is in B/W then you might have a hardware issue. Try adjusting the custom color setting so that you get a blue picture or red picture. There is an option for adjusting the color called "blue mute" it should give you a perfectly blue picture. If you still don't get any color than it is a hardware issue. It could be the Main Board or the Control Board.
