    it is a Samsung DLP rear projection. Model HLP5063WX/XAA.



    The unit was 3 years old this past February. The color wheel is not making any noise, an increasing in pitch squeal usually means the color wheel is shot. The bulb has lasted far longer than I thought, nearly 9,000 hours. Thos are the only two moving parts. I was wondering if the IC chips were toast but thought I'd see what others knew before jumpin the case.

Had tv fot about 7 years, at top center of screen an area has appeared that is yellow in color. How can I fix problem?


If it's a 3 tube projector, the front of some of the tubes are cooled by an oily substance. this oil is replaceable. If it uses a light bulb, the bulb can be dimming, the color wheel may need to be cleaned as well as the lenses in front of the light. The DLP chip can also be going bad.

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.

your set is not a DLP its a traditional rear projection tv set and has three picture tubes
there is not a bulb or color wheel in this model
if its dead ? you would need to check the power supply first to see if you have the proper voltages . the trouble shoot the rest of the circuits to see what is shutting it down . convergence circuit failure is always a good suspect in these sets

60 inch mitsubishi comes on no picture only sound and then it will turn off by its self


Most mornons seem to think that your TV is a traditional crt projection when in fact it is a DLP projection set and does not have convergence chips or CRTs. Instead, your set has a DMD chip and a projector lamp that passes light through the light engine where a color wheel is and the DMD chip itself. Often times DLP TVs cycle on and off again when the lamp is starting to go out. Mitsubishi is well known for this. However, it can also be a symptom of the color wheel going bad as well or simply updating the software by downloading it from http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/
Good luck and rate me when you can.

I just finished replacing the color wheel on my samsung dlp tv and now there is a 3 inch wide dark stripe down the left edge of the tv. the stripe is transparent but it looks like something is covering up...


First thing you want to check is the bulb alignment and make sure there is nothing obstructing the light source. Check the foam sheath on the projector lens and I hope you didn't touch the color wheel with your fingers, you coauld be seeing the effects of finger prints.

After projector is on for a lilttle while the pic flash an changes to blues an greens...just changed the bulb an it has did it again..


hi,
first of all check the tint setting on your projectors picture menu.
if not get the correct color then, your projector is a dlp projector that means it have a color wheel in side. if the synchronization of color wheel is not correct this problem can occur. there is a sensor for counting the rpm of color wheel. also have a black mark on the color wheels rotating portion. the sensor scene this black mark for making count. if there is any dust in that portion it will make difficult to the sensor making the counts. you have to remove the color wheel to clean the same.
i have added a video how to clean the color wheel . not the same projector.

ok

Magnavox 50" DLP Tv power light comes on but then i hear a buzzing noise and then two red lights come on the tv. at no point does the picture turn on during this time. Can you please give me a possible...


Your bulb is burned out. I have had the same problem. It seems this television has an overheating problem--and short bulb life. I have had our 50 Magnavox dlp for two years and just put in the second bulb before Christmas. You can buy the bulb from a dealer on ebay for $99 and install it yourself. I is not in the housing so you have to carefully take out 4 screws and replace the bulb without touching the face of the bulb. To buy the one from Magnavox with the housing is much more expensive. I think the first time my husband replaced the bulb it took about 45 minutes--this time it took about 20.

Color problem + power problem


Since you say bulb, i will assume that this is a dlp projection set. Blurry color on a dlp usually means that dust has gotten into the optics assembly or that it has settled on the mirror. as for the cutting off periodically that could be the lamp (more often than not) or it could be an intermittant lamp thermistor which monitors the lamp tempature. If this is a tube projection set then in mitsubishi units this usually means that one of the projection tubes is weak and needs to be replaced. Hope this helps.
