Loud screeching noise when it powers on

Over the last month or so I had heard a noise coming from my tv faintly but you could not hear it over the volume unless you really focused in on it... today I turned the power on on the tv and its making a very loud screeching whining sound i shut the tv off and it continues for a couple of minutes and then stops... also the color is all messed up on the picture... if anyone could be of help that would be greatly appreciated.. thank you

    Thanks so much for your help. My husband is crazy and took the entire TV apart and found the part that was making the screeching noise but he didn't know what it was called. He brought the part to a TV repair place and it is the colorwheel. The guy at the shop told him that the RCA tv's have samsung parts inside. So he had the part replaced for $200 and is now going to put it all back together. I found a great site where someone explains step by step with pictures how to replace your own samsung colorwheel. If you would have someone come to check it out the whole thing would've cost like $500 or so. Here's the link in case anyone has the same problem and is handy and can do it themselves. Thanks! http://www.jangro.com/a/2006/07/24/samsu...

Loud buzzing noise which became a very loud screech over the last week. Turning tv off and on seemed to remedy it. Today screen was only black and white, now no video only audio. Is this the picture...


This TV uses a lamp and color wheel. the color wheel is likely the problem since it is known to make noise over time and will eventually sieze. The repair is in the $400 range.

Loud sound of air and screeching tv keeps powering down


Sounds like a CRT is arching internally. to confirm remove the covers to have a view of the picture tube necks- in adimly lit room you should see bue arching in one of the tubes. (there are three piture tube with glass necks)

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on


If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.

T.v. clicking and wont turn on..


Hello:

The loud pop you heard is usually indicative of a failed lamp. The clicking noise you hear is likely the ballast trying to turn the lamp on.

If you need assistance with a new lamp, please feel free to contact us at www.dlplampsource.com or 866-764-5822.

HEARD LOUD POP NOISE DLP TV DOES NOT WORK


Following up on my Feb 7 post. My new lamp arrived, and I replaced it and it works great. The old lamp had many shards of glass come out of it. It was tore up. I saved some money buy purchasing just the lamp and not the cartridge. It's a little bit more work to take apart, but saves money. Mitsubishi wanted $289 for the lamp replacement kit. I got a lamp for $114. TV is working just fine now!

Loud noise from tv


if this is a very annoying screeching or sqeualing type sound, it is, in my experience, the "color wheel" which is located inside the lite engine. this is a replaceable component whick costs about $110....i've done this repair many times with no problem....
