Question about Samsung HLP4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Samsung HLP4663W 46 in. fan noise when shutting off.

The TV works just fine, things turn on, and run just as if it were brand new. Now when you turn the TV off it sounds like something is rubbing up against a fan (which i have no clue). Is this the fan or color wheel? I have read other posts where people describe the wheel failing as a "squeel". This is more of a grind. Thoughts? How many fans does the TV have? I have seen 2 back by the lamp but I don't think it is either of those.

Thanks in advance.

My Samsung HLP4663W 46 in was making a buzzing noise for several months. I know it could have been either the fan(s) or the color wheel, but I never opened it up to determine which it was. Now the TV quit...


Great reasoning work! In fact, the lamp will not light if the color wheel does not spin-up. Fans will not stop the process of lamp ignition. Instead, a fan will be detected and a message will appear on the screen telling which fan has stopped. You need to have the color wheel replaced.

You have 4 different fans inside of your TV. The biggest challenge - to pinpoint which one is bad. I would recommend just to get 'em all and replace 'em all. They will start fail one after another anyway.

TV made humming noise for past few months and after it warmed up the humming would go away. It that same thing today and a pop noise came and the screen will not come on, and the tv shuts off and then...


i took off the back and pulled out the the fan. Then put in a fat screw between a slight gap whick kept the fan from hitting what ever is causing the noise. probably not safe but nothing bad happened yet.

TV on/off


How long is your TV on before it turns off? Check the fans and make sure they are all working. The TV may be shutting off due to overheating if a fan quit working.

If you think the lamp is still good maybe try replacing the lamp ballast.

Sporadic Hum on HLP4663W


I would guess that its the fan for the lamp, as the color wheel will power down as soon as the power is cut. the cooling fans will continue to run
