That was probably your color wheel being destroyed. This repair is not for the DIY'er you need to see a tech for thione believe me... The light engine housing needs to be removed justy above the color wheel and a new color wheel needs to be installed. Wheels are not cheap 2-3 hundred dollars and you would be surprised how much tear-down the tech will have to do to get at the wheel housing. But believe me it's well worth it...
If you have any problem locating a good reputable tech for the repair you might try NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealers Assn.) or let me know about what city/state you're located in and I can recommend someone.
Good Luck!

Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA made popping noise and shut off, then made whirring noise.


When my TV did this in the past it ended up being the color wheel. I had someone replace it and it worked fine. I asked it if had to be calibrated after it is installed and he said no. Also make sure the door switch is pushed down when you install the back bulb door. Sometimes this switch can go bad as well.

Model 5063W - loud noise


The picture is pink, that would point more toward the color wheel, and you can see the fan through the vents in the back and you can go from there. It sounds more like the color wheel since you have a picture malfunction.

noise you are hearing can be the fans inside with bad bearings and or what im assuming given the info you gave.More likely the motor inside the optics engine (color wheel) is making noise..This will also cause picture problems..very expensive to repair..
