RCA DLP color wheel issue

Hi, I saw you answering other DLP questions on here, and figured I would ask you if you knew anything about installing color wheels on RCA DLPs? I have the color wheel, but don't have much in the way of instructions. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

The color wheel is a straight forward installation the indexing is where most people have the trouble as the color wheel needs to be indexed properly after instalation or the tints will be off. I always recomend that anyone needing to replace the color wheel go to this following link as they have the DLP service manuals which will help you get the set apart without harming anything and the site will provide free tech support to actually take you step by step with the replacement as well as the indexing proceedure by on line instant message and thats all free when you purchase the service manual which they email to you right after ordering. Is a very good deal as it makes the job easier and you will always have the manual and free tech support even for other models when you become one of their customers. Heres the link.

I have the m50wh72s rca dlp....and will be changing my bulb with thanks to this site!.....but what about the colorwheel? it easy to change ?....and is it exspensive to buy?

The color wheel if used may no longer be available from RCA. With the exact model number GOOGLE the model number with the words COLOR WHEEL after it and if I remember some of the wheels were rather expensive.

Let me know if you have questions.

Color Wheel Replacement

Hi Hampton,

Here is the link, email me if you have any questions. But a quick (I learned the hard way) hint is to go in from the front behind the screen. After removing the screws that hold it to the chasis you can quickly gain access to the color wheel, remove it's 4 screws and 2 connector cables and it is out.

Let me know if you have any questions.

How to replace the color wheel on a RCA DLP

RCA DLP color wheel replacment is most efficiently done from the behind the screen, not the back panels where the guts of the DLP are located.

From there you do not need to remove anything but the color wheel and disconnect the two wires.

If you want to see pictures, email me and I can send you pictures. email:

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.
