I have installed a new color wheel in my acer project and the color is green or black and white.  Adjusting colors does not change anything.  Cables are all secure.
i would appreciate any ideas.  I have tried menu all settings with no luck

Adjusting colours does not change anything.
What model do you have?

There's more to this calibration than simply adjusting from the menu KCC
It's best to leave to defaults.
if the wheel spins at the correct speed and is functioning ok.
Ensure none of the connector pins are bent or broken.
look in the manual
The installation menu provides an onscreen display (OSD) for projector
installation and maintenance.
Use the OSD only when the message "No signal input" is displayed on the screen.
