Fan making noise

Hi, my projector is working great, but the fan is making some noise and buzzing. Is this something that I could fix myself?

Thanks!

    I also have a weird buzzing noise, but I know it's not the fan. When changing image modes (ie, if the projector changes resolutions from 480i to 720p) or when only black is displayed (such as when movies fade to black for transition), the buzzing calms until the next scene appears.

    I may try a new bulb assembly because after the bulb turns off during the cooldown period, the buzz is gone while the fans are still pulling air out of the unit.

    buzzing noise when it gets hotter. Doesn't take long for the buzzing sound to come. I have air to blow out. I going to take the bulb out first. Build up on a fan blade could be the noise, or a broken blade or worn out fan blade from getting to hot. Just a guess. I could not take the top off. White powder on the inside screen of the bulb unit.

Hi, you probably have something rubbing against the fan or a faulty fan. To investigate, you'll have to open up your projector and look at the fan.

To start the process, you'll have to remove the cover of the unit. I just opened my Sharp xr-10x DLP projector today, which had no power, no lights, no functions. A previous post worked for me...Remove the 6 screws on the bottom of the unit (you'll need a longer phillips) and the two screws on the back, toward the top of the unit. Obviously, be sure to keep these handy for reassembly (I have two curious dogs and a 4 year old to contend with). Then, to remove the housing...use a std screwdriver and slightly pry the cover off from the rear of the unit. This should losen allowing you to pivot the cover forward and then off from the projector lens. Once removed, look toward to rear of the projector...the fan is located here...it's a small unit that vents out the rear. Before removing this, check to see if there is any debris in the vent area that will be need to be removed. If you need to remove the fan, you can do so with the screws attached to the fan unit. Once this is done, you'll be able to plug the unit in and see where the noise is coming from. If it is from the fan unit itself, you'll have to order a replacement from Sharp. Just contact their service/warranty dept and tell them the make/model and they can obtain the part for you. At this point, reassemble the unit by reversing the above instructions. At least your projector should work while you await a replacement part to arrive.

Good Luck...Hope this helps you out.

If it's under warranty it should be covered. It might be the fan, dvd drive or hard drive that is making the noise.

I replaced the lamp and the projector is make a very loud buzzing noise. How do i remedy this problem?


There may be a fan rubbing against a cable or something, but more than likely there is a vibration damper clip that has come loose off of the colorwheel and will have to be fixed by a technician.

I have a one year old epson ex51 and was working great until last night. Since last night the fan noise has increased significantly. Does anyone know how to fix the fan noise?


Mine just started doing that too. I'm pretty sure the fan blades are rubbing against the casing. If you have had it for under a year, call and get it fixed, but if its over a year you're on your own. I nudged the fan with a metal hanger, and it has stopped making noise. I think eventually I'll need to take it apart and get a new fan for it that has better bearings.

Color wheel sounds like a buzz saw. Fan is quiet because there is no noise in the cool-down mode. Can this be replaced by user?


Baily, I have had my HC1500U color wheel replaced two times due to the color wheel's unpleasant "buzz saw" effect showing up every few thousand hours of usage. It is happening again for the third time and I am still within Coscto's warranty so I am going to have it replaced again...will never buy a DLP projector again...too many moving parts that can break!

Would love to be able to replace it myself if you ever find a place that sells the color wheel.
