Well you need to take apart the TV to find out, also the color wheel can make a similar noise.

    To start , not only fans can make noise, however , if you are sere that you are hearing a fan like noise of bearing rotatings, the culprit are always one of the cooling fans bearing, or the color wheel.

    The only way to find out is by taking apart the TV, sometimes just opening the back is not even enough.

    The job should be done by a technician and not by the home user.

    If the Tv is less than 4 years old, it may be worth calloing Samsung at 800-SAMSUNG , and asking a warranty extention, they start at $85 and will cover the technician visit.

Zeith lg dlp 3110v00139b how to clean tv fans making noise wont turn on


It may not be the fans if this model uses a color wheel--fans can be cleaned with air to remove all dirt or dust(rest of set as well for that matter)

If possible I would remove cover and try to locate where the sound you are hearing is actually coming from.

After 10 sec. After start up the tv starts to make a large growling sound for about 5 secs. Then repeats every 15 sec. Sounds like if might be a fan. How many fans in this t.v. . Took the back cover off...


there's 3 fans. 1 by the video board. 1 in the middle of the set infront of the heatsink and 1 behind the lamp. make sure all 3 fans are running and put your ears by them to check. if all of them are running the sound might be coming from your colorwheel. If it sounds like a loud whinning/humming or buzzing noise then more then likely its your colorwheel. Let me know what you find and please rate me. Thanks

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.

SAMSUNG HLR4667WX/XAA Buzzing sound - iNTERMITTENT


It sounds like you have a bad color wheel--it will give a fan like noise before it fails--some describe it as a high pitched whine--if it shattered the set will shut down. It faces the lamp for your set--about 2 inch in diameter with colored segments colored like a pie--this model uses 2 different wheels--label on side of set will give full model number and version number---part is about 130 on Ebay and it requires the light engine to be removed to replace it--takes about 40 minutes--I have seen dozens of these with this problem--you can research it by taking the model number and Google it--lots of sites have general instructions for replacing it---I get lots of them local where someone buys the color wheel and has me come out and replace it(I usually charge 100 for trip and labor to replace it) bottom line is a shop will try to charge you 400 for this repair---but if you can buy it and find someone to do the labor you can repair the set for a reasonable price.

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...

SAMSUNG DLP BUZZ ONLY WHENBULB IS ON


A friend of mine does warranty work for samsung ,name is chip call him if you need too! 256-778-0300, most of the time when lamp needs replacing set will not play,the fan behind lamp is there to keep lamp cool when playing ,DO NOT touch lamp if you do this will leave fringer print and lamp will burn your inprint on it when hot!!! then you will have to replace lamp ,they are not cheap.replacing lamp is fairly easy, besides i really dont think lamp is your problem,most likely it would be fan making noise.

It is most likely a fan (there are 2 to 3 of them in the set) that is making the noise. I doubt seriously that the lamp is causing a buzzing noise. The only other buzzing sound can come from the ballast wich powers the lamp.

Toshiba DLP fan noise (52hmx95)


i constantly hear complaints about fan noise in dlptvs if you sit in front of your computer you will hear the same noise even in the next room there is no solution to the fan noise problem this product has a huge cage fan and a second and third three inch fans in it.... more than the samsung product it can be noticeable if the tv is on hard surfaces ie wood floors ,inthe corner, glass top etc the vents on the back of the tv allow for proper cooling of the lamp at shutoff so it doesnt shatter the tube its kinda like annealing glass its designed to extend the life of the lamp .... which im sure youve priced call toshiba and tell them your lamp is bad right now and get a new one for an emergency ( warranty if you can do it ) they are also improved this product is known to have short bulb life sometimes the zinging noise you hear is indicative of a bad color wheel in the light engine which would require replacement ( not cheap) toshiba will not piece out the color wheel assembly individually
