    My HLN617 display just turns B&W. When power on, all 3 lights look normal. After 15 seconds, there is a humming noise. Is this the color wheel damaged, or the digital control board? Thanks.

The color wheel is not the problem. If the spinning color wheel is impaired in its RPMs it will cause picture distortion, not black and white picture. If the color wheel looses any of its color fins, like if it is broken, there will be a loud vibrating noise inside the tv which you did not mention. Also if the color wheel is broken and doesn't spin, the tv will not start up.

The likely problem is on the digital control board or the power supply and should be referred to a local repair shop for repair.

There is an outside chance that you will receive color if you experiment with using all of the different input ports to see if you can find one that will bring back color.

    My HLN617W had catastrophic color wheel failure with most of the wheel gone. It was not making a loud noise but was only BW including menu's. Color wheel replacement fixed the problem.

That sounds like one of 2 things:
  1. Color wheel
  2. Light engine
Color wheel because of the losing color, but the light engine because of the picture freeze. It's very difficult to judge since I can't be there to see it. I'm leaning toward the light engine though. The only fix is to replace the DMD board, or entire light engine.

Only black and white


The same thing happened to my HLP5063W. Researching the internet forums I concluded the problem was with the color wheel, which I replaced. As it turns out the old one was completely smashed. Go to www.jangro.com for replacement instructions.
