Question about Hitachi 60V500 60" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Noisy TV (Hitachi)

TV produces a loud humming sound as if there's a cooling fan that's working extra hard. The problem is sporadic in the sense that it can run for several hours without making any noise and then it can also produce the noise when it has just been running for a few minutes. The temperature light has not come on at all, but the noise is getting more frequent. Is it a cooling fan and if so, is it separate or is it part of the engine assembly(meaning all inclusive)? Any easy solution or is this going to require a professional technician?
PS....we're on our second lamp (replaced over six months ago), the noise problem has surfaced in just the last 3 weeks.

The noise in question relates to capacitors, which are (unfortunately) largely dependant upon environmental elements. You most probably find that when outdoors is wet and humid, there is no issue, but the moment the sun is out and it drys out, your problem rears its ugly head again. This is a basic fault and should be able to be solved by a standard TV tech shop, as its in short, humidity dependant. To explain caps, are moisture based electric storage devices; under normal circumstances the chemicals react ideally to provide the expected volts and or current. Alter the environment subastantially and the cheaper versions will not adapt and they will put the unit 'out of spec' as a dryer environment will produce less volts/current and more humid environment will make it perform closer to spec. Its a sod of a feature but thats earth. :) Higer class ie Class 'A' components tend not to suffer dramatic changes and produce more reliable results.

To sum up, the loud humming is caused by out of spec components or for that matter dried up used up components, the fact it runs for hours at a time is most likely weather dependant and if not its likely to be a dry joint somewhere on the board. These are also unfortunately largely dependant upon environmental conditions. Best of luck. :o)

maxie99,

Fan is available at https://www.encompassparts.com/webwiz/wwiz.asp?wwizmstr=WEB.SEE&partnumber=6475656&smodel=52HM95 for about $80.00. Replacement should be as simple as unplugging the fan cord and removing a couple screws to remove. Do the work with the unit unplugged from the wall. Reverse the procedure to install the new unit.

Thanks for using FixYa and the great rating.

Sporadic Hum on HLP4663W


I would guess that its the fan for the lamp, as the color wheel will power down as soon as the power is cut. the cooling fans will continue to run

Problem


Sounds like the color wheel or coolin fan both can cause this symptom. If it stops as soon as the set is turned off its probably the color wheel. If it continues for a minute after power is off its most likely the cooling fan.

Toshiba 46HM95 Buzzing


I have the same thing, mine is the cooling fan for the lamp. If the sound continues for a short time after you turn off the TV then this is the most likely cause as the cooling fan will continue to run for a short time to cool off the bulb. I have looked into replacing mine, the part runs around $50 but I can't say yet how easy it is to replace yet.

Toshiba DLP fan noise (52hmx95)


i constantly hear complaints about fan noise in dlptvs if you sit in front of your computer you will hear the same noise even in the next room there is no solution to the fan noise problem this product has a huge cage fan and a second and third three inch fans in it.... more than the samsung product it can be noticeable if the tv is on hard surfaces ie wood floors ,inthe corner, glass top etc the vents on the back of the tv allow for proper cooling of the lamp at shutoff so it doesnt shatter the tube its kinda like annealing glass its designed to extend the life of the lamp .... which im sure youve priced call toshiba and tell them your lamp is bad right now and get a new one for an emergency ( warranty if you can do it ) they are also improved this product is known to have short bulb life sometimes the zinging noise you hear is indicative of a bad color wheel in the light engine which would require replacement ( not cheap) toshiba will not piece out the color wheel assembly individually
