How can I get oil into this motor?
I have a very special request, I want everyone to take a look and offer their opinions. Here's the situation:
I recently aquired a 50" rear projection DLP Tv, quite a sweet deal and it still works... for the most part.. The sad thing is, the color wheel is starting to fail inside of it, for those of you who don't know what one of http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_Light_Processing#The_color_wheel_.22rainbow_effect.22 these are.
This tv still actually works fine, but the motor is getting louder and louder, and sometimes the colors go out of sync and I have to restart the tv. It'll cost me $150 at least to replace the wheel, but really there's no need for it, the motor just need some oil!
So anyways, I've had it apart before and oiled the motor, tried to squeeze some in the motor housing and in the divot on the backside where I presume is a bearing, but it appears sealed, as the video will show, as the whole outside moves, there is no visible moving parts of the shaft or the bearings :S
So what I want to know, is anyone familiar with this type of motor and how I can pull it apart/oil it (I've done it with computer fans, why can't I do it with this). Worst come to worst, I'd even try drilling a small hole with my dremel that I could inject oil inside with? (Btw I have 3-1 oil, which I think should suffice enough). I was even thinking of getting a container so the motor can sit in oil without the glass having to, and just let it soak for a week or something, Ideas people???
