Noisy colorwheel has finally faded to black! Can we replace it ourselves?
Thanks to this forum, we were able to determine the loud hum has been coming from the colorwheel. Already replaced the lamp last year. Called Toshiba and they offered no help. The colorwheel assembly is nearly $600 on-line. Know of any cheaper parts available and can we replace it ourselves if we order one?

Hi,sounds like you might be experimenting a color wheel problem.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.Your part # is BP96-00250A You can find it here http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-BP96-00250A-ColorWheel-Assembly-p/bp96-00250a-color-wheel.htm?Click=48173 and here's the instructions to replace it : http://www.fixyourdlp.com/guides/samsung/bp96-01579a.php Have a bless one!
it just needs a cleaning. blow the dust out of it with canned air. also check the colorwheel for caked-on dust. you can see the colorwheel if you remove the lamp. there will be a small opening with colored class behind it. if it's clear, it's ok. if it's milky, replace the colorwheel. you can try to clean it with a microfiber cloth, but be gentle and don't use solvents. just to be sure, check the lamp for bulges, black spots, and fogging. if it has any one of those, replace the lamp.
I sounds like a bad filter in the sudio supply circuit finally took out the sound output chip or the power supply that controls the sound circuit. its a soliud state set and there are no user replaceable parts inside this set. Unless you have had solid state repair experience, please be safe and call in a pro to assost you in this repair. good Luck
