Samsung HLR4667 DLP picture problems

I have the 46 DLP from Samsung and it has been making a weird whining noise when I turn it on and then after about 3-4 rounds of that noise, it shuts off and the front lights blink as if the bulb were bad. I've replaced the bulb and it didn't help. Now, the picture is pixelated in the black areas and on actors skin and some colors. Can anyone tell me what may be wrong with this unit since its apparently not the lamp.

Thanks in advance for any help.

    Okay. First things first. Intermittently, when I turn it on I will hear a whining noise like a motor is spinning up, then down, then up, then down again. After about 3-4 tries, the unit shuts off and the lights on the on/off switch blink as if to indicate there is a lamp problem. However, I changed the lamp recently and it didn't fix the proble.

    Now, while that problem hasn't happened in a little while, I am seeing pixelation or maybe its just real bad contrast in the light and dark areas of the screen. You see really well on people's faces, on white areas, and in black or shadowed areas or the screen. This has gotten worse and if I change to some other mode besides "dynamic", the colors turn to **** altogether.

    I hope this explains it a little better. Thank you very much for your help so far.

SOURCE: dlp tv will not "fire up"

Hi there, your instruction manual should have a trouble shooting section, and will tell you what various warning lights are indicating (ie the Lamp/Temp lights will flash in a particular sequence), and will give you the probable cause. In some cases, it could be blocked vents (dust causing overheating/shutdown), or just the lamp failure or faulty switch (indicating loose cover).

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

SOURCE: Samsung DLP TV time, temp and lamp lights blinking... won't turn

Les,
I'm not a TV repair guy but my owners manual states that when all three LED's or lights on the front of the TV are flashing, that the lamp needs to be replaced. Might want to look into this. Good luck!

Whining noise


Color wheel is going or gone out. New colorwheels are air bearing and not mechanical.

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.

No Picture no sound


The color wheel will make a high pitched sound or even a clicking sound if it is bad. Also the ballast will make a clicking sound also if it is not seated to the lamp properly or if the ballast need replaced.

Unplug the set, pull out the lamp module (not all the way - leave it on the track) and push it back in.

Whining Noise - hardrive or fan?


The color wheel is the most common problem when it comes to noise from DLP's. To determine if it is a color wheel or fan: Turn on the set. When the noise starts, turn off the set. If the noise goes away within 5 seconds, then the color wheel is bad. If the noise goes away after one to one and a half minutes after the set was shut off, then one of the fans are making the noise.
