Question about Samsung HLP4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV
When I turn on the TV I get a loud humming noise and no picture or suond except the loud Hum it is like a loud vibration and th lamp light turns on, then after a few minutes all three lights start to flash? Help what does this mean?
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.
