Question about Samsung HLN617W 61" Rear Projection HDTV
After turning on tv, lamp light comes on as green. A high pitch whine starts and lasts for 3-5 seconds as if something is trying to start up. Whine stops and recycles 3 times total. Set shuts down and 3 blinking lights come on in front of set. I have replaced the bulb and the ballast with no improvement.
The whine or squealing you hear is either the color wheel or fan. To determine which, when the noise is heard from the set, turn it off and listen carefully. If squealing stops immediately then Tthe fault is the color wheel, not the fan. And sounds like that are generally the color wheel. A new color wheel is Samsung p/n# BP96-00250A for this model. Vance Baldwin carries them for $97.20 plus shipping. https://www.vancebaldwin.com Logon as guest, select parts and copy past the above part number in without any dashes. Good luck... Bill
