Question about RCA HD50LPW42 50" Rear Projection HDTV
Most DLP TVs have a color wheel. This allows the TV to be manufactured with a single chip to control the color for each spot on the screen and a white light source. As the wheel rotates, the desired color light gets transmitted to the screen. This happens so fast that most people do not see the screen refreshing each color.
Here is one source for a color wheel for your TV: http://chaparral.shopjimmy.com/catalog/product/view/id/200632/s/rca-color-wheel-212184/ . This is a part reclaimed from a TV that was damaged in shipping so it was only used during factory testing. The part number is RCA 212184.
Usually the symptom of a failing color wheel is the TV being very noisy on startup (a whining sound) followed by it shutting down. Although other problems can be involved - for example a power problem going into the assembly with the wheel (there is a motor that turns the wheel).
I hope this helps.
