Have a good day and good luck with your tv.
I need to reserrect this thread. My TV just died and it think it's the color wheel.
It made a buzzing sound for a couple months and now won't turn on and just blinks 10 times and keeps doing it over and over.
I think it is the color wheel, but all I can find on-line is $350 color wheels. For that cost, I might as well get a new TV!
Does anyone have a cheaper source?
