    Only the color issues i can speak for. Ive fixed maybe 9 or 10 with this sensor. Mines been working 1 year in august without a hiccup. Knock on wood.

    Many thanks to brad2388, he sent me a new sensor with instructions.

    I installed the sensor and the TV is functioning like new again!

    The local repair shop wanted $800 to install a reconditioned light engine:eek2:

    I always prefer replacing a componet over installing a "recon or rebuilt" assembly. Rebuilt assemblys may have other componets nearly ready to fail. Kind of like buying a rebuilt car engine where only the bad parts have been replaced, the rest of it is still used or worn.

    Again, great call on the sensor replacement Brad!

    I had this tv (or a similar model) The color wheel went out in the second year. I had the extended warranty from Frys and I got a plasma as a replacement.

    My wd73831 is having similar color issues. It will run for about 30 minutes and then it becomes predominately green. I believe it may be the sensor brad2388 mentioned. I found this site when looking for a color wheel replacement and would be very happy to attempt the sensor replacement.
