Bad Color Wheel

The color wheel in my X1a is gone bad, I believe. The high pitch screeching noise I hear when I turn it on is due to the color wheel is what I have read on similar blogs. If I could purchase a matching product so I can replace it myself that would be great. Thanks dynoh

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.

The high pitch noise is the color wheel that needs replace the noise is coming from a bad bushing that goes to the color wheel and is a common problem.

The fan intermittenly makes a noise and the color changes on the tv


You need to give model #. Most likely you have a dlp tv and its not the fan but the color wheel that spins at very high speed and creates correct colors on your screen. This color wheel makes noise when its bad and colors go off when its running at slower speeds. Its going to fail sooner or later as its going bad now. Its a professional job to change the color wheel and could cost you $280-320 depending on the model. Fan generally never make anoise that is loud enoug to be heard unless its blades are hitting some obstru ction. Color wheels make whining or in worst case screeching noise when bad. check out www.fixurtvs.com for more FAQs. Thanks if you voted for me.

Color wheel or did i break something else?


Usually a bad color wheel will produce a high pitched sound or even a grinding noise; some sets may actually shut down if the wheel is bad or shattered.

To determine if you have a bad color wheel:
  1. Turn set off and wait for main fan to shut off.
  2. Unplug the set.
  3. Remove the lamp door and then remove the lamp.
  4. In the direction the lamp faces you will see a round opening; the color wheel is facing this opening. It is a round plastic wheel with colored segments—we want to look to see if any of the segments are missing; a shattered wheel should be clear to see.
I have also posted the general instructions for Do it yourself replacement of this part in the TIPS AND TRICKS section of this site.

I will attach a photo of the color wheel for you to know what you are looking for----

X1A DLP No picture no buttons work only get white light


possibly the colorwheel. remove the lamp and see if the colorwheel is still there (colored glass through the hole). if it is, replace the lamp and turn the projector on. if you hear a high pitched whir, the colorwheel motor is ok. if not, it's one of 2 things: the main board has come loose from the dmd chip board, or the main board (eca controller) is bad. if the board is bad, you'll need to replace it, but it's over $500.

High pitched whine when the motor starts


Had the same problem. It quit within about 5 seconds after turning the TV off. Replaced the color wheel and the whine is gone. The picture also looks brighter, which may be due to dusting the projection lens with lens-cleaning compressed air (from a can). The color wheel was about $100 from Samsung parts and it took less than 3 hours to replace. See http://www.jangro.com/a/2006/07/24/samsung-dlp-replace-color-wheel/ for good info, and be sure to read the cautions.
