Question about Samsung HLP6163W 61" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
We have a buzzing sound on our Samsung DLP Hlp 6163 and cannot figure out how to get rid of it. We thought it was a fan, but it happens whether the TV is hot or cold. It continues to happen even when the TV and Cable TV Connections are muted. We have been to the Samsung site and have done their troubleshooting with cables, but still the sound is there. ANY IDEAS? Cooling fan.... bulb going bad.... color wheel... How do you know which is the problem? According to the book, all three lights flashing indicates defective bulb. But I also get a loud humming noise (fan) at times. I have already replaced the bulb once plus got a bad bulb from "Matter of fax" website with very bad customer service. I couldn't return the bulb, which didn't fit properly into guides.
It sounds like your color wheel. If you are handy at all you can change it pretty easily for the price of the part (probably around $90-$110) and a couple hours of your time. Here is a link to a video showing you the step by step process. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cx4pbNjsxfU good luck..

It is the color wheel. not an east job to do either. I'd recommend taking it to a samsung authorized service center. Job should cost around $500 or less.
