    my 42 inch vivtek dlp won't turn on- that's after replacing the bulb and ballast. I get dlp hardware error ( by way of flashing led's). Could it be just that I need to replace the color wheel? No one services this unit in my area.

    My TV does the same thing.....we did manage to get it to come on by unplugging it and allowing it to reset. Our tv fan is extra loud.
