There are only two parts in this set that have moving parts and can create noise. One is the color wheel and the other is the fan. There are actually two fans. One you can easily see from the back of the set when you remove the cover and the other is not visible. The most likely cause of this hum is the color wheel. It has bearings and they wear out. You need to be careful when or if you attempt to replace it. There are actually two types of color wheel for this model. Samsung doesn't tell you this. One has air bearings and the other has ball bearings. Mine had ball bearings and I ordered the part I thought was correct. I replaced it and it worked for about at day then failed. I thought maybe I had a defective part and returned the color wheel and ordered another one. Same result. I did some further research and ended up ordering the ball bearing type of color wheel instead of the air bearing type. There is a website that shows you the difference.
This seems to have resolved the issue. Good luck. It's not too difficult to change this color wheel but you do have to dismantle the set a bit and it helps to be somewhat mechanically inclined. make sure to take notes as you take it apart so you remember how to get it back together.

I have a pair of JM lab Electra 905 speakers, running through a DNM amp and power amps. When powered up, the left speaker makes a very loud humming noise. This has happened recently. I haven't changed...


Hello
Switch on your amp, keep its volue down to extreme low, and listen if there is still hum through the left channel or not. If still there is hum, the left side power amplifier section inside the amp;ifier is faulty. If htere is no hum at this state, hum enters thorugh the audio input terminal, and the input wires must be checked for open sheild connection. OK.

About a week ago I replaced the lamp in my samsung hls24266 with no incident. Now when I turn the tv on, I hear a very loud humming noise. I tried disconnecting the coaxial cable but it does not go away....


I can't explain the timing of your problem and why it showed up after lamp replacement, but Samsung color wheel failures are usually associated with a rather loud hum. I would removed the back, jumper the lamp door switch and try to determine exactly where the hum is originating from. I think you'll find the color wheel is the culprit.

Toshiba 62HM195, Loud hum noise when TV is first turned on.


I have the exact TV and had the exact same problems. It is the light engine with color wheel that needs to be replaced, and they are VERY hard to come by for this model. Our repairman has had our TV for 5 months and still cannot locate a vendor that carries the part. He said according to Toshiba, the part has been discontinued. If you happen to find one, please post. I'll do the same.

Loud humming noise from new hdtv


hello, the speakers are fualty or have a shorted connection if they came with the tv contac your seller and arrange for a replacement imediately dont wait. since they are giving you feedback dont use them they may cuase other fualts in your tv, any component thats cuases hum or noise when pluged into the tv should not be used at all.

one important thing is to have a grounded plug this also may cuase fualts down the line,
if posible get a power line conditioner or ups (uniteruptable power supply)

flat panels are very over protective you dont want the tv to start blinking. since flat panels have built in protection circuts any slight short or fualt may cuase the wide screen to go into circut shutdown mode and this will cost you more if the speakers create a short in your audio circut it may damage your widescreen internal boards and cuase a system shutdown circut (red light flashing no picture)

contac your sellers site let them know your speaker are cuasing a loud hum
and that you will need the speakers replaced these are definitely fualty
if you dont have any coverage or you got the set as is then dont take any chances use other speakers.
if you are electronically inclined you can open these up and find out whats wrong with them internaly it may be a loose connection, since opening up the equipment may void your warantee contac the store first see what they say..
good luck happy holidays

Loud noise


I believe it is the color wheel. The motor might be going bad or it has dirt or dust in it.

I hope this helps

Loud hum when attempting to turn on my RCA F27628 27"TV


could be that the main b+ filter Capacitor went bad and blew up. Also could have been the horizontal output transistor shorted and the flyback poped. In eather case it would be recommended that you take this set into a repair shop unless your familar with HV circuits in tv sets. Good Luck
