Color wheel I opened my rca scenium 50" DLP. My color wheel was making alot of noise. I removed the colorwheel and added wd40 to bearing of colorwheel. Now my tv is turning on with no problem but my picture does not fill screen. I tried adjusting lens but that only affects sharpness. I noticed i have 4 extra screws could that be the problem. I have rca#hd50lpw164.

I would make sure the assy you pulled out to get to the color wheel is pushed all the way back in. If it is then you may just need to adjust a setting in the picture menu.

The motor is nothing more than a harddrive motor, not sure that was the right solution but.... I would suggest that your chassis is not in the right location. Verify that the chasis is centered on the mounting bosses. The screws might be a good clue. Good luck.

I have an RCA Scenium HD DLP 50" TV Rear


What is the Model Number that is printed on back of TV?
You say TV is DLP ,but you are posting Model# HD52W59 that is for Projection that has 3 Tubes Red/Green/Blue Tubes.
If TV is DLP then problem will be the Color Wheel
If it is Projection then it has a coil on the deflection board that either needs to be replaced or
resolder ciol and take a Glue gun and glue over the top of coil. Coil LL037 on the right handside of the FBT flyback transfomer.

If this is a DLP set, which I suspect it is....you need a new color wheel. Common problem for these sets. If you don't have an extended service plan, about a 300--400 fix, in home.

Its the color wheel assy. Its changing speed due to worn bearings. You may also hear a hum coming from the rear of the TV. Seek an RCA authorized service center to resolve this.

Color wheel was making a sqealing noise then locked up


The clorwheel is the problem. Once the bearings go bad in the colorwheel, it's toast. Replace the colorwheel and you'll be ok

Sharp 56dr650 Dlp colorwheel for Mike miaer


I have a Sharp 56dr650. The color wheel bearing failed. Sharp cares not for its customers and won't even respond to my pleads for help in obtaining the replacement. So, with that said, I went to ebay and bought a vizio color wheel (Omega TV in Hollywood, FL). Color wheel is incorrect and colors are all blue as is, so I pulled the color wheel off and did the same from the old one-BIG note, the wheels are glass and fragile, DO NOT BREAK the old color wheel! I viced the old bearing and carefully worked the shaft out of the bearing (it is snapped into the bearing). The vice distorted the old bearing but it was trash anyway. The new bearing, I broke the new color wheel off and viced the shaft. I then pulled the old bearing from the wheel. I then carefully push the old shaft and color wheel into the new bearing (you will know when it snaps in place) asserting preasure ONLY on the metal center hub with my thumb. I had to file a new slot on the cast housing as the ribbon connector is about 1/2 inch shorter on the new bearing. I installed and it all works great!!! Saved from tossing a $2,000 plus tv out! SHAME ON SHARP! Never buy another Sharp product!
