on where to find parts , can a color wheel be cleaned manually , part # 23405476

No you cannot fix this by cleaning the color wheel. It is worn out. Being a moving part, over time it is normal to wear out. You will have to replace the color wheel. Then in another 5-7 years you will have to replace it again, and so on...

Your best option is buy online at eBay (new):

And you can see DIY videos on YouTube.

it has been stated I need a light engine , any resources I can try also, any thoughts dealing with the attached stereo speakers if I get rid of the tv

Unsure who stated you need a light engine...

Did you see my previous posts? Saying color wheel needs to be replaced, buy online at provided link https://www.ebay.com/itm/110698000524

And see YouTube videos for DIY...

Getting rid of it - lots of people on craigs list...

Excellent service and insightful
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
Last question would that apply to light engines , interchangeably and would have resources to install myself

The light engine is not widely available, probably very difficult to find in stock at all.... except USED which is not recommended. If you did find it, price would be way to expensive - more than a new 60 tv.
