Here is a site for ColorWheel replacement, which is what you need to do if you hear that screeching or fan running noise coming from your TV. Sometimes the wheel just explodes which gives you no picture.

If you open up a small panel in the back of your TV, there is a little blue switch that you can see. You need to tie the switch down tight, and then start up the TV. It should work.
If it doen't work, press Mute>1>8>2>Power on your remote, go into debug mode, and then it might stop working.

If your having the "3 light" problem it could be an indication of a bad lamp however if there is a buzzing or a grinding sound it could be one of two moving parts. The color wheel or the cooling fan. I would go the cheaper route and replace the color wheel first since you say the fan is spinning. The thing is the lamp will not turn on if there is a problem with one of the other two parts. The motor on the cooling fan is too small for such a big fan so I would definately try it next. It's a big problem with the DLP tvs. good luck!

My samsung tv hlr5067wx/xaa screen turns black, sounds is fine. if i turn it off for awhile i can get picture for a few minutes, but it goes back to black screen

I suspect the lamp is failing on your TV. The lamp replacement code is listed on the side of the TV on a sticker that is orange and white. It will start with BP96-. The lamp code is crucial on these older Samsung DLP's because they used quite a few different styles. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you...

the lamp led will light when the color wheel is defective. If the noise you hear is a buzzing or screeching the color wheel is the most likely cause.
