Question about Samsung HL-R4266W 42" HDTV-Ready Projection Television

Whining Noise and Image Problems

I have had the Samsung HL-R4266W for about 2 years. A couple of months ago, I started noticing a whining noise from this TV. Now when I turn the TV on, occasionally the whining noise will change pitch while pixelation occurs in the image. Sometimes, the picture will go away entirely, but audio will remain momentarily. Sometimes the set goes into standby and Stby/Temp, Lamp, and Timer Flash.

1. I believe the lamp needs replaced.
2. Could the whining and pixelation be a failing color wheel?

You better to check the color wheel or Lamp ballast.

Normally, the noise comes from color wheel.

If the alternator belt was correctly tensioned, it could be a defective alternator. Have it tested. Warranty is usually good for at least a year.

If this is happening instantly.......I guess that the color wheel is not starting........if you hear the whining noise(the wheel) then the problem may be with the ballast or Lamp

Im getting a whirring noise in the back of the tv but the picture and sound is still on. picture quality is still good. i dont know if its the fan. color wheel was replaced a year ago. but the tv stopped...


Well that whirring noise is most probable to be the color wheel. Funny thing you replaced it a year ago. But it's most probable that is the issue. You did get the right one, did you? Because with Samsung TVs they have 2 types of color wheels, either gold or silver bearing.

Samsung DLP HL-R4266W..no sound or picture. TV is completely dead


Assuming the noise is a high-pitched whine, then yes, it is the color wheel.  If the color wheel goes out, the TV will turn on for a while, then turn off when it can't establish color wheel sync.  The color wheel has to be in sync with the mirrors on the DLP, so if sync can't be established, the TV turns off.
You can order a new color wheel from Sears or partstore.com (among other places) and replace it yourself, if you are so inclined.

If it is the bottom front, it is the color wheel. To tell for sure, take the back off (fake out the cover switch) and listen to the fans.
