Question about Sony Grand WEGA KDF-60XS955 60" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Grinding Noise My LCD TV made a loud popping noise last night. Now there is a medium "grinding" noise (sounds like a grinding wheel) and the TV does not turn on.

    I was *hoping* it was something easily replaced like the cooling fan. The posted solution gave me the guts to actually take the back off my TV and check. Unfortunately, it is not the fan :(. The sound was actually a "sparking" coming from the front center when the screen was trying to come on. I believe the "do it myself" solution is out of the window. Does anyone have any idea what a repair might cost me?

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W


First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

HAVE GRINDING OR HIGH PITCHED SOUND?

RCA HD50LPW164 turned on TV made a pop


the loud pop you heard was probably a capacitor blowing its top. The grinding noise is likely high voltage arching that was occuring due to rising voltage since capacitor isn't there to smooth it out.

No picture or sound


Hi, your color wheel needs to be replaced, the bearings fail causing the grinding noise, the new ones use "air bearings" so they are supposed to last much longer, video-tek

TV grinding noise


A grinding noise in that model usaully means the light engine is defective or it could be the color wheel. But light engine is most suspect as there have been some issues with the light engine assemblies

Grinding Noise


sounds like the light engine there are alot of problems with the light engines and quite a few have had a grinding noise. The only other possibility would be the color wheel. But I would lean heavier toward the light engine being the fault.
