Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Very noisy when turned on, then shuts down, Samsung 61 inch

It sounds like a fan running then binding up, but a visual of both fans shows no problem. Even replaced the small one! Just Replaced the bulb, because of previous bad bulb indicators on the front ,but the racket continues until the set shuts itself down in 30 seconds or so. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

    If in fact it is the color wheel and you order the part , can this be done in the home by the owner or does it require a tech to do the install? I have the simular DLP TV HL-R4667W and just got done replacing the projection Lamp myself, it was a pull and plug component. Took me about 3 minutes to change out. Ordered part on line cost$149.99 plus shipping ,but avoided the cost of labor, and taking to shop.

    I called the authorized service shop to check on the color wheel problem ,they said it would take one day to fix and cost approx. $400.00 for part ,labor and tax, with me bringing the TV to the shop.

    Love the TV, but I have not had it 2 years yet and it looks like its going to cost me about $600.00 in repairs so far when I replace the color wheel. HELP. The part on line is $97.00, plus shipping, that means labor is approx. $300.00 WHAT!, HELP.

Get a small but powerful used computer fan and place it in the TV to replace the defective old fan.That's the best way.The factory fans in these TVs don't last.

If you hear the Lamp fan turn, it is probably the lamp it self that has failed. If you do not hear the lamp fan turn then the fan could be bad or binding.

Cooling fan is loud . I'm going to replace the lamp in the unit because all 3 lamps are blinking on the front panel. Unit shuts down but I'm wondering if there is a seperate cooling fan in the back of the...

That's probably the Color Wheel you are hearing. When you turn the set on the color wheel has to run, one of the several things that has to happen for the set to come on. The color wheel sends a signal back to the control circuit to tell it it's running. If these sets fail to light the lamp they will shut off and try again, that's why you hear the color wheel start then wind down then start again. The set should try three times before it decides it's not going to be able to turn on.

One way you can tell the difference in the fan sound and color wheel sound is if you can get the set on, let it run for a little while so it gets warm, then when you turn it off the color wheel will start winding down but the fans will continue to run for a minute or two.
