The fan in the tv is too loud.

When you turn on the tv you can hear the fan turn on and whir loudly. Its annoying. How do I make it softer. Can I fix it by myself?

Thiscan happen for two min reasons.
1. Dust
2. Fan's bearing gone bad.

Easiest way is get a compressed air can and clean the fan. (You do not need to take the TV apart)

If it did not work, replace the fan. (Will not cost you more than $20)

My Samsung TV makes a loud humming sound when I m watching it. It is very annoying. What could the problem be?


Color wheel would be first suspect followed by a fan needing replacement. But if its a real loud humming I would almost bet its the colorwheel.

Model 5063W - loud noise


The picture is pink, that would point more toward the color wheel, and you can see the fan through the vents in the back and you can go from there. It sounds more like the color wheel since you have a picture malfunction.

Big Screen gets loud, mad and turns off


without a model number, i can't be much help. if this is a newer dlp or similar tv, the fan is probably going out. some newer tv's have a fan that is part of the light assembly, some have a separate fan.. the loud whirring noise is usually caused by bad bearings or the blades of the fan may have become unbalanced, either way, the fan making the noise will need replacing. the color going is usually caused by the lcd or dlp overheating and/or the lamp overheating.

if the tv is out of warranty, remove the back panel, locate the fan making the noise, and search for a replacement. if you have a model number, i can check around and see if i can find the part number for you.

hope this helps,
trin

Loud whirring. Not the fan.


The fan noise is normal on this set. The lamps are cooled via this method. Your users manual explains this issue..and it is the fan as you can see it slows down after the tv is switched off..

Whirring noise. No other problems.


Sounds like you have a noisy color wheel. Very common on all Samsung DLP`s. The part # is BP96-00250A for model HLN5065W.
