    Oerlikon Optiks manufactures the colorwheel for LG. LG will not sell the component by itself, you have to purchase the Chassis Assay 31419EN050N for approx $1000. I had the same problem with LG and decided to buy a new TV due to the cost and the horrible customer service from LG. I plan on boxing up my TV and sending it to Zenith with a note to the CEO that he can kiss my A$$.

    Same issue on my RU44-SZ63D. Color wheel exploded in less than 3 years. Bad planning by LG. Samsung has color wheels separate. You can buy the whole light engine from for $495.00 but with prices low on new plasmas and lcds, it still doesn't make sense. If anyone is ditching their LG TVs, I and others may want to purchase the spare parts, like color wheels, lamps, ballasts, etc until we break down and buy new TVs.

Lamp Failure, Ballast, or color wheel?

The ballast board for sure. If the color doesn't come back, try cleaning all the lens elements in the box in front of the lamp. If that still doesn't restore the color correctly, then look at the color wheel.

LG RU-44SZ63D turned off while watching, heard click and red light indicator went on, tried to turn the TV on but after the yellow light blinks for a few seconds, it turns red and shuts down again.

Locate and remove the lamp which should be behind a removable door on the right side as you look from the front of the set.

If it is shattered you have found your problem; if it looks undamaged you have either a possible bad ballast which powers it or a power problem.

This model can be difficult to work on as there are at least 3 different versions which use different circuit boards.

Let me know what you find as I am here to help.

Lets statrt with the obvious, did the lamp that you replaced showed any type of damage(blown, broken) and when you put in the replacement lamp did you also replaced the lamp cover? or at least remembered to activate the door switch? these tvs have a starter board if everything checks out see if you get any type of activation sound whent you turn the power on, kind of a click sound and another thing to look for is the ventilation fan, is it activating when you push the power button?

I'm sure that many lamps in these models get replaced unnecessarily. The problem is the contacts where the lamp assembly plugs in. Remove and replug the lamp.. Mine has aluminium foil jammed in the connectors for 2 years now and hasn't failed since.. Prior to doing that I had EXACTLY what you described. No more LG for me

More on Ballasts from Alanx

By looking at the photo of the ballast on eBay, it doesn't appear to match the one that is in my television, but I haven't looked at it lately, but I will check it later this week and see if it perhaps matches. My set actually has a new bulb already in it, so I really won't need other bulbs right now since I don't have any extra money for backup parts. I might be interested in your ballast if our tvs take the same one; but like I said, I'll check later this week when i get back home and I'll let you know if it fits or not. Thanks, -Travis
