Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

Cooling fan buzzing

I think I have a bad cooling fan. The tv begins to make a loud buzzing noise shortly after it comes on. The picture and color are fine, so I don't think it is the color wheel. Is it difficult to change the fan motor?

Yes,don't do it yourself,and you need to have repair tech. asap,cause if the cooling fan is not working properly,that could trigger other parts in the tv to be malfunction.

I have a Samsung hlp5063w dlp tv. 1- loud buzzing noise coming from the left side of the set (looking from the front). When I tap it the noise tends to go away and come back. So I'm thinking it's...


It is much more likely considering all these the wheel fails to be your issue.

The problem is often described as a fan like or high pitched sound which since the motor on the wheel turns at over 12,000 rpm is likely to be the cause.

Hint: most color wheels if you listen from the rear when the set is shut down the whine/fan noise instantly slows down until the wheel stops.

Eventually wheel will seize up and shatter and set will not come on.

Loud sound would be coming from defective color wheel that is mounted i light engine, next to lamp housing. Replacement of color wheel is required expertise/ experience and professional will do that for you in correct and in safe manner.
Contact local tv repair shop to get color wheel replaced in tv.
Thanks.

We have a constant buzzing/whining noise when the TV is on.


Is it a whuring or buzzing sound? When color wheels go bad they can make a lot of mechanical nose, cooling fans can do the same but they do not spin as fast as a color wheel does

Humming noise coming from TV and picture color fluctuating


Humming is very common on this brand and model of tv. It is usually the cooling fan and the color wheel, the color wheel is the one that get loud. I think that is our culprit. I will get back to you with more information shortly.

Loud humming or buzzing when set is in operation


Does the picture gets distorted in any way when you hear the buzzing noise?
I would suggest to check all the cooling fans for proper operation.

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..
