I am having the same problem, loud vibrating buzzing sound comming from the tv, and the picture looks distorted. I changed the lamp, because it had almost 12000 hours on it, but no difference. I am thinking its the color wheel but I am skeptical. Did you find out what was wrong with yours? if it was the color wheel did you change it yourself? thanks for ur time.
My Samsung HLP5063W is almost 4 years old now and this morning the humming sound turned "grinding" sound! I immediately opened the cover from the back (put a tape on the cover switch) and saw the bulb working just fine.
I removed the bulb encasing and saw the fan located behind the encasing slot (right hand side) and the smaller fan attached to the silver holed plate encasement (left hand side) and both were not the source of the noise....
My next suspicion is the color wheel. I tried to find it. Couldn't. I Googled some sites and stumbled here.
I hope there's a tutorial here on how to replace THIS model's color wheel. I have a suspicion where it is, but it may involve complex removal of screws and pin wires to get to it. I just want a good reference to finally get on to it. I already ordered the part and I want to be ready to install it once it arrives.

Its so high pitched that some people can barely hear it, but I guess I have sensitive hearing. ... Anyway, this seems to be a fairly common issue and it is caused by either the ... You're probably hearing a transformer humming.
You have a bad COLOR WHEEL! The part number is BP96-00674A, it cost around $120.00 for the part.
It is easy to replace if you are some what handy with a screwdriver.
To replace this part is would be wise to place the TV on the floor so that you can have access to the back of TV.
1) Remove back panel (bottom portion only), about 20 screws. 2) On the right hand side is what they call the light engine, remove that.3) A couple of screws on the bottom and top. 4) Pull towards back gently, you will notice some cables will restrict movement, disconnect those cables (make note). 5) With the light engine out, the color wheel will be just to the right of the optical lense, sort of black/grayes object.
The Color Wheel is mounted with the Wheel > facing down.Disconnect the 2 cables from Color Wheel assy. 6) remove the screws (4) pull up and replace with new.
Let me know if you need any more help or how it went.
If you are hearing this noises,that's your Color Wheel. The reason fot that is because your color wheel spins 5000rpms(revolution per minute) and something that modifies the balance if the disc can cause different things.Unfortunately in order to check if your color wheel is working properly you need to open your TV and physically check out.
Grinding= Most probably the color disc is broken and you need to replace it.
Spinning / Buzzing = The bearing of the wheel is loose and is loosing its balance,eventually it will brake.
The best thing to do is to take the color wheel out and spin it ,if you feel that the disc kind of wobbles or doesn't spin smoothly you have to replace it.

Your symptoms sounds like the set may have a damaged color wheel.
It is also possible that you have a noisy fan, but they don't get very loud.

Hello, The grinding sound that you are hearing is your color wheel. They can make a noise from a buzz to a power saw type of noise. Usually the set will continue to play with the noise, but it is annoying. You will need to replace the color wheel now. This is not as easy as the lamp replacement, as you have to pull the light engine to access the color wheel. It is not hard just more work and be careful of the color wheel lenses.

I just responded to your other post check the connection between the lamp and ballast at both ends. Also did you get the same exact lamp as your old lamp, as Samsung has two different arc gaps and they wont work if you get the other type even though they look the same physically.
Is this buzz from the speakers?
Is this buzz from the set itself when the sound is turned down?
Is this buzz a low pitch sound?
Is this buzz a high pich sound?
Does this buzz vary in loudness with the volume control?
Does this buzz change in level from time to time?
You should post the details and the circumstances of use in order to give some idea of the conditions.
