Question about Samsung HL-P5063W 50" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a loud humming noise whenI first turn on the TV.. It lasts for about 10 minutes before eventually fading to a small buzz that the TV sound drowns out. The picture still looks fine though. Can anyone tell me what the problem could be?
Samsung is notorious for having the motor on the color wheel burn out. If the color on the tv starts to fade or shift tones when the rev'ing or noise is happening then you'll know its the color wheel. There are only two moving parts in this set, the color wheel and the fans. If you're smelling something, it could be either. Take the back off the set and put a piece of tape on the lamp door switch and turn the set on. Try to pinpoint the source of the noise. If its a fan, no big deal, Radio shack should have a replacement. If it sounds like its comming from under the set, dig a little deeper and try unhooking the color wheel motor, not as easy as I am making it sound but either way the fan is about $20 to fix and the color wheel is about $100. Sure beats a $400 tech bill. If you get stuck, comment back and I'll send pictures of the dismantle.

The power transformer. Nothing to worry about unless it goes out.
