Question about Projection Televisions

1 Answer

Fan/Engine noise. I bought a used tv, and it was fine in the store, but when we got it home and plugged it up, it started making this loud noise like a fan turning and it is annoying. Does anyone know what this is? The tv is worth some money and it has a great picture, please let me know if I can get this repaired?

Dig down inside and find where the noise is coming from. Just don't stick you hands inside while the TV is on.

Samsung dlp tv HLP5663W makes loud noise


Yes, the set uses a color wheel and the lamp faces it.

The wheel turns at over 8,000 rpm and is well known for this problem=bearings in the tiny motor go bad.

The high pitched or fan like noise (classic description) is this part.

Sooner or later the wheel (plastic colored segments) will shatter and set will shut down lamp and not operate---set monitors the speed of the wheel so if it slows down or stops it knows.

The part is readily available on the internet (Google the model number with "color wheel").

This can be a do it yourself repair and You Tube has video instructions for replacing the wheel by model number.

There are two common pitfalls to avoid which the instructions that come with the replacement part usually do not mention---if you decide to do this repair let me know and I will explain.

My hln5065w started making a loud noise like a fan noise upon startup recently. The color is fine (I've read the color wheel w/loud noise problems). It has been doing this for the past week, previously...


The loud noises came from the tv with a colors wheel design in it have to be replaced every few years,because the spinning of the colors wheel disc are spinning in very high speed in RPM to have it colors for the tv to operate correctly,the humming,loud motors noises and eventually the effect of the tv colors.The colors wheel disc are worn out and spinning hitting it axes motor,the colors wheel must be replaced to solved this problems.

No picture, siren type noise as restarting


My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Loud noise coming from Lamp area


The fans in these generaly do not go bad, the part nubmer for the lamp cooling fan is 265943. But my guess is that the color wheel is starting to go out of you light engine. I am not sure if these are still avalable but the part nubmer for it would be 267888. Worst case you could send your engine in for repair engine nubmer should be 265864 or order a repacement try this site. GOOD LUCK http://www.moduslinkptstvboards.com/Default.aspx

Loud noise from tv


if this is a very annoying screeching or sqeualing type sound, it is, in my experience, the "color wheel" which is located inside the lite engine. this is a replaceable component whick costs about $110....i've done this repair many times with no problem....
