Question about RCA HD61LPW165 61" Projection HDTV
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
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.
