Loud squealing noise first 5 minutes after tv is turned on

I replaced my lamp about 3 mths ago and ever since my tv has made a LOUD squealing sound. I took the lamp access panel off and it feels like the lamp is making the noise. Is it the fan? if so, does anyone know what the part # is? The model # is RCA HD61LPW165. Thanks

    I forgot to say that the squealing started out lasting for about 5 minutes after I turned the tv on then stopped. then eventually it started sporatically doing it after it had been on for a while and the picture would get distorted. now it won't show a picture at all.

    • I have the same problem. I've bought 2 expensive lamps, but they have not helped. The squealing is getting on my nerves. I can't afford another projection lamp. verne1231

Sounds like the color wheel. It's the only moving part in most DLP's and the bearings can go bad. If it manages to get up to speed the picture may look normal. One temporary solution may be to let it run a few minutes, then turn the set off for 10 minutes, then turn back on. When my color wheel was going bad that would often quieten it down. For the rest of the day, try to leave the set on, especially if you're only going to be away from the TV for short periods. You can turn off your cable or satellite box but leave the set on and you won't have to go through the hassle of trying to quieten down the color wheel until the next cold start. Of course the best solution is to replace the color wheel which even with a rebuilt unit won't be cheap if your warranty is expired.

What kind of noise ae you hearing ????,,,

If it is a screeching/squealing sound this might be the fan belt, which when it gets loose, can slip and squeal on the pulleys. It should just ned to retensioned or at worst case, replaced.....

If it is some other noise, please let me know and I will hope to identify it for you.

Toshiba 62HM195, Loud hum noise when TV is first turned on.


I have the exact TV and had the exact same problems. It is the light engine with color wheel that needs to be replaced, and they are VERY hard to come by for this model. Our repairman has had our TV for 5 months and still cannot locate a vendor that carries the part. He said according to Toshiba, the part has been discontinued. If you happen to find one, please post. I'll do the same.
