Question about Samsung HLR5067WX 50" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Color wheel or cooling fan ?

My Samsung 50inch started making an awful noise this morning. Sounds like someone is using a sander or something. Almost a noise and vibration at the same time. The picture started flickering and changing colors also. Never had any problem at all until this happened. This is a 2005 model. Does this sound like the color wheel going out or maybe the cooling fan ? I read your article on replacing the color wheel. Great directions. Would these directions also work for my T.V ? Hope this isn't too many questions all at once. Thank you, Tom

It could be 1 of 2 fans (fans are around $30.00 each) or more likely it is the color wheel beginning to fail. Color wheel will cost around $180.00-200.00, plus labor. I would recommend calling 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center. Part should take an hour to an hour and a half to complete repair.

Yes, the Color Wheel would be the only thing left. I am not sure about this exact model but the Color Wheel in other Samsung models are replaceable.

Tv makes a noise


This is definitely the color wheel. It is not the same thing as the cooling fans. The color wheel is buried; even if you took the back off the set you cannot even see it. It's a pretty pricey repair.

HDTV Rear Projection


The color wheel is the most common problem when it comes to noise from DLP's. To determine if it is a color wheel or fan: Turn on the set. When the noise starts, turn off the set. If the noise goes away within 5 seconds, then the color wheel is bad. If the noise goes away after one to one and a half minutes after the set was shut off, then one of the fans are making the noise.
