I am positive

Could it be the bulb fan?
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

You have made a mistake with the installation or the new color wheel is bad did you replace teh complete assembly which includes the motor?not just the glass wheel?

Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

Not lamp fan

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
it was the complete assembly. The color on the TV are great. The only problem is the low loud clunking noise that is in sync with the brightness of the tv dimming and darkening.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Sounds like it is coming from the lamp housing assembly.
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

So its not the color that is affected but the brightness?

When did you replace the color wheel?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the color wheel is working fine. The tv makes a loud clunk, then the screen starts to flicker between normal and dark. It only makes a clunking noise when switching from a show to commercial or when changing channels
I replaced the color wheel about 2 months ago but have not been using the tv cause of the clunking
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The color wheel was bad as I could hear the high pitched humming, that has gone away. But the clunking has been the same even after I have changed the color wheel.
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 1 year ago.

OK if it was the color wheel the color will be affected not the brightness the thing is you are going to need to monitor it with the back off, and monitor where the sound comes from it could now on reflection be the lamp fan or another fan or maybe the lamp itself as the only thing that will affect the brightness is the lamp, so you should consider replacing that if the lamp has been in for more than 3 years.
