First, it being a DLP that is likely... But your posting is under the header of an projection 42H81 and that is not a DLP... Can't help much beyond that without the model number...

Loud humming coming fromthr rear of Toshiba DLP 46HMX85. Humming is not connected to the volume control and sounds like a power supply transformer or a fan.Changes pitch momentarily when certian functions...


YOU are describing a color wheel, in this model it may or may not be available as a part; some of these sets it is only sold with the light engine.

See attached photo of a typical color wheel.

In DLP type sets the wheel turns at up to 12,000 rpm and if bearings in the tiny motor fail it sounds like a fan or even a grinding sound.

Let me know if you have questions.

Flashing in Blk,Wht, and a little color


Sounds like maybe your color wheel needs to be replaced. If you have noticed a humming noise in conjunction with the intermittent colors, then that is most likely the issue.
My 51" Vivitek started to hum loudly about 2 months ago and I kind of ignored it ,but it got so loud and annoying I had to do something.First changed the bulb and then bought a color wheel at www.vancebaldwin.com .Login as guest and then enter your model number into corresponding box.They have a few Vivitek parts.
I replaced my color wheel myself and it works great!
I'd be happy to help any way I can.
Good luck!

Toshiba 56HM195 56 in HD DLP Loud Buzzing and color distortion


If the sound, sounds more like a Hum with some vibration chances are the Cooling fan located behind the lamp is going bad, about $20 to repair, if its a high pitch hum most likely the Color Wheel and if thats the case about $30.
Good luck, my fan just went bad now seeing green dots everywhere, so debating on just junking it out or fixing it, with winter coming on might just breakdown and buy LCD and say the heck with DLP from now on.
Good luck to you..
