The part to clean is the sensor that wraps around the colour wheel or some thing on it's axle.
This sensor identifies when the colour wheel has made a revolution and syncs the video output to the right segment in the colour wheel so only the red image is displayed when the colourwheel is filtering red, etc...
If the sensor gets dirty it will not be able to tell exactly where the colourwheel is, and in my case started to report a segment off.
Consider this before you take your machine apart.. I live in New York City, and this area is rather dusty.. I've had my projector for 2 years running pretty constantly, so it was pretty dusty. I mention this because there are other possible causes to this problem. It could be an electronic issue.
There were three things that convinced me it was a colour wheel issue : 1) The problem appeared slowly over the period of about 2 weeks.. First it started flickering, and then all of a sudden it would switch back and forth.. 2) The color white was fine. In fact, the image was fine, just some colors were switched. I could even fix the image by adjusting the hue in my video.. 3) My machine was full of dust..

I don't know about the HP projectors, but this is the best I can do to describe how to locate the colour wheel...
If you take the bulb out of your projector, you'll probably see part of it.. The first thing wherever the bulb shines into is probably the colorwheel (or a protective cover). In my machine there is no way to access it from the bulb housing, so I had to take the entire case apart.
From there you can clearly see how the bulb shines through the colourwheel, and then then light enters a closed chamber (sealed, I assume, from dust).
If you are not able to locate the colorwheel after this, maybe take some pictures with the case apart and send them to me.. I'll look for a manual online in the meantime..
Also, I'd be happy to talk to you over skype to get more detail.

I have a Mitsubishi 65" dlp TV and the picture is green and yellow with no reds or magenta's so would that mean i need a new bulb or does it have something to do with the color wheel

It means that the color wheel or it's encoder is not properly syncing with the controller. It is therefore blanking the DLP chip on the red and blue sections of the color wheel. Clean the color wheel motor and encoder disk, lubricate the motor. This should correct the problem. There may be dirt in the opto-coupler that is reading the color wheel. Be sure to clean it with a vacuum and small brush. Regards.

53 inch projection tv...seems like the color red and color blue have shifted giving me a picture with red and blue shadows

For CRT projection TV's, this indicates that the Green picture tube is burned (warn out). The less green that strikes the screen, the more redish the image will look. You will need to find an old school TV repair shop that knows how to replace picture tubes.
In the case of a DLP style TV, the color wheel needs replacing.

You have probably have installed the wrong lamp or you installed a third party/off brand Lamp. If that is the case anything other than a Factory replacement Lamp will have a different color temprature. Install a Lamp that is listed from the manufacture.

3 year old Mitsubish 52" DLP mdl.WD-52627 TV displays all "Red" colors as Brown-Grey in color. Going to the color level menu and maxing out the Red color bar does no good. Also intensifying...

Found out I have extended warranty and I am awaiting service company to respond in order to conduct service to find the problem.

Thank You
