Dlp tv strange noise

Most dlp tvs have a color wheel but not all have them that you can change, most of the Mitsubishi's and Toshiba's and Hitachi's all have them in the light engine and can not be gotten to but Samson's did make all of their units so you could get to them and replace them yourself. Symptom is a grinding noise if the glass breaks then you will have the same as if a lamp is out, most of the time the color wheel needs to be changed by your second lamp.

60 inch mitsubishi comes on no picture only sound and then it will turn off by its self


Most mornons seem to think that your TV is a traditional crt projection when in fact it is a DLP projection set and does not have convergence chips or CRTs. Instead, your set has a DMD chip and a projector lamp that passes light through the light engine where a color wheel is and the DMD chip itself. Often times DLP TVs cycle on and off again when the lamp is starting to go out. Mitsubishi is well known for this. However, it can also be a symptom of the color wheel going bad as well or simply updating the software by downloading it from http://support.mitsubishi-tv.com/
Good luck and rate me when you can.

We have a toshiba rear projection 61" DLP tv and the fan is making a horrendous buzzing sound. We have contacted Toshiba about ordering a fan, but they claim that the parts are no longer made. The tv is only 4 yrs old! Can someone help us find parts for the tv?


Are you sure it is the Fan and Not the color wheel,when color wheel is bad it will make a high squealing noise,and the claim of Parts no longer made is BS Only parts being discounted are OLD TVs,I think it is your color wheel that is bad not Fan. What is your chassis & model number ? Let me know ASAP!
