It appears my colorwheel has died yet again. I've already replaced it once(3 years ago) and the lamp also. It had been making that humming/grinding noise for the past month or 2 and now it doesn't appear to spin at all. The TV turns on, all the fans work. I hear sound but no picture appears and the lamp won't light up. The TV turns off within 15 seconds.

I read that if the C-Wheel is dead the lamp won't fire up, is that true? I believe the ballast is still good because both fans still seem to work at full speed.

Any ideas? I appreciate any input..

It's obvious you need to replace it again.

Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.
