When I first got my PS3, It had the annoying high pitched fan sound as well, but went away after a week and has worked fine ever since, no problems at all. I have the 60 gig version, so. Maybe if yours is new you just need to break it in?

Samsung dlp tv HLP5663W makes loud noise


Yes, the set uses a color wheel and the lamp faces it.

The wheel turns at over 8,000 rpm and is well known for this problem=bearings in the tiny motor go bad.

The high pitched or fan like noise (classic description) is this part.

Sooner or later the wheel (plastic colored segments) will shatter and set will shut down lamp and not operate---set monitors the speed of the wheel so if it slows down or stops it knows.

The part is readily available on the internet (Google the model number with "color wheel").

This can be a do it yourself repair and You Tube has video instructions for replacing the wheel by model number.

There are two common pitfalls to avoid which the instructions that come with the replacement part usually do not mention---if you decide to do this repair let me know and I will explain.

Electric cooling fan bearing failed and the cooling fan needs to be replaced. Start with inspecting the cooling fan behind the radiator and determine if that is where the noise is coming from. Replace any worn or damaged parts.

Acer aspire4920 makes loud noise at start up


This could be caused by the harddrive. There might be a bad bearing or something. Please backup all your data. You will probably have to replace the hard drive sooner or later.

Loud high pitched noise from belt


When you have the belt off, spin that idler pulley and see if it turns easily or makes noise. Check if the bearing feels good and smooth or if it wobbles any. While you are at it, check the fan and fan clutch to see if they turn smoothly also. There should be some resistance to the fan clutch, and make sure the fan isn't rubbing on anything.

Replacing the idler pulley is usually done as a unit since the bearing is part of the pulley.

I have owned a Sony Grand Wega for about 3 years now and for the past few months the TV has been making a very loud noise. I thought the noise was the fan but came to find out it was not the fan and was...


Hello,

There is a fan beside the lamp chamber in this TV. There should be 4 fans total, and the one beside the lamp chamber might be making some noise. They are all bearingless fans, so the noise should be relatively low-pitched "whirr" if it is the fan. If the noise is more of a buzzing sound, it could be coming from the lamp driver (ballast) or from the lamp itself. Lamps tend to do strange things toward the end of their life.

If you have never changed the lamp, it is about time. They have a 2.5 -3 year life span with average use.

One thing you can try is to turn the TV on from a cold start, and watch inside the vent areas beside the lamp chamber. If you hear the noise before you see the lamp light up, then it is probably a fan. If it starts as soon as you see the lamp light up, it is the lamp or ballast.

Hope this helps you...

High pitch noise coming from laptop


Likely it is the system cooling fan or processor cooling fan so check to see if you would like to put it back under a manufacturer warranty if possible or whether you have the skill to review, follow, and carefully open up and inspect and clean and reassemble your notebook PC. What price is it worth to you to fix this problem - the downtown computer retailer that sells CDs and PCs and appliances will charge you to fix it. Again, most likely it is a simple small fan inside the PC. It could just have lint, dust, fuzz in it and after a clean out could work quietly again. The CPU cooling fins or cooling fan blades after cleaning will allow the CPU or system to operate more coolly, and then the fan RPM could drop a bit and the notebook PC whining sound may decrease. Oh, finally, putting the notebook PC on a grate or grill or a notebook cooling ventilation platform could alleviate the problem if it is just lint or dust.
