More than likely this is the cooling fan. I have a Samsung DLP myself, and at times, I can hear the fan running also. There could be something wrong with the fan, but I kind of doubt it. Just make sure that the TV is in a spot with lots of ventilation....otherwise, you might have to live with this noise.

Hope this helps!!

My tv makes a buzzing or grinding sound when i first turn it on and stops after the lamp warms up. is this just my lamp starting to die?


You may have a bad color wheel if your TV is DLP based. If its a Samsung then you most likely have a failing color wheel. Lamps will not cause grinding or buzzing sounds.

We have a Samsung 61 inch DLP tv. That started buzzing a few weeks ago when it was turned on. At first it only lasted a few seconds. Kinda sounds like a bad barring, Then this last week it began to last...


Highly likely that the sound was coming from the bearing in the color wheel assembly. When the bearing fails, the color wheel cannot spin at the correct speed, and because the speed is measured by the control board, the TV will shut down.

If you can handle a screwdriver - entire color wheel assembly can be replaced for about $100 and 30 minutes of your time.

It sounds like a bad color wheel (see photo) which will give a fan like or high pitched sound.

Very common on these sets and can be a do it yourself repair.

You Tube has complete video instructions for replacement for most of these models.

The wheel turns at over 12,000 rpm (very small part) and the bearings in the motor fail causing a fan like or whine noise.

If it fails all the way and shatters (it can) set will not even make it on---set is monitoring the wheel and if not at right speed or stops almost instant shutdown will happen.

see the photo and let me know if questions--replaced a lot of them and your description is classic.

It sounds like the compressor isnt starting just because the lights on doesnt mean it is actually on.
If it is the compressor thats making the buzz heres what to look for when you start to hear the buzz does the fan slow down and then speed up after the buzzing stops? If it does your compressor is locked up you can try to replace the capacitor on the unit. If that dont work I wouldnt spend the money to replace the compressor too much money.

When you turn on the TV it makes this buzzing sound like something is spinning inside the TV. After a while the TV cut off on its own. It has a new bulb in it.


check the fan that cools the bulb. if its rubbing something that would make the buzzing sound, and if its not cooling the bulb it will shut off when it over heats.

When turning on the TV, I hear a banging/grinding sound.


Hi,

If you hear a grinding,whirling,spining or buzzing sound, that sounds to me like the COLOR WHEEL,the reason for that is because your color wheel spins at 5,000 rpms(revolution per minute) and something that modifies the balance of the disc can cause different things,Unfortionatelly the only way to check that the color wheel is working properlyis you need to check it out physically

I did some research and I found the color wheel at DM;http://www.discount-merchant.com/Samsung-Replacement-Color-Wheel-HLS-HLT-Series-p/samsungcolor_wheel_bp96-01579a.htm?CLICK=52978

Please keep us posted.
