    My Scenium is only a 50inch; however, I was having the same issue a couple of months ago (whining / whirring sound). We ended up replacing the bulb, but evidently that wasn't the problem, because tonite it became much worse to the point that I had to shut it off. The whining sound got progressively worse and I thought the TV was going to blow up.



    A bad "color wheel" sounds like what I'm dealing with...$300 to fix doesn't sound too bad. Anyone know what the part# is and where I can get one?

    I have the 61 " version of this tv. and it is a big, big pain in the ***. Wish I would never had bought it. I have had it for 4 years and It has been in the shop every year, some time twice a year. Always the color wheel. Today they are picking it up for the reason we have blue people and the hd is gone out. Haven't been able to what tv for weeks. It is a piece of junk for the over $2000.00 I spent on it.

High pitched or even fan like noise usually means the Color wheel which are hard to find/expensive for this set.

When you shut set off noise should wind down as the wheel which turns at over 10,000 rpm slows down.

Color wheel

A noise had been gradually increasing from a grinding sound to a high-pitched whine. COntinues until the screen is completely off. Sounds like a fan motor may be out of lubrication.


THAT TV HAS WHAT IS CALLED A COLOR WHEEL WHICH SPINS AT VERY HIGH RPMS AND CAN MAKE HIGH PITCHED WHINING/GRINDING NOISES IF A FAN WAS BAD THE TV WOULD SHUTDOWN AND THE SOUND WOULD BE MORE DULL SOUNDING.

Dark picture on RCA Scenium 61 in DLP


Yes, the lamp will gradually get darker as it nears it's end. The rolling lines sounds more like the set is on a local channel for the cable hook up. If your local area has a channel 3 or 4 live terestrial broadcast simply tune the cable box output to the other one, the same for the tv.
If this is cable/local broadcast issue it will go away in Febuary when the NTSC broadcast ends.

I have a very high pitched sound and when I move the tv it will stop for a second or two and then start again. The sound sometimes stops all together. But very high pitch sound.
