This is from the computer being bogged down by too many processes. Close some programs and it will usually go away. If not, restart the machine and you should be fine.

Can bad color wheel cause lamp to not turn on


Actually yes, the thing is that the color wheel is also part opf the light engine system and if it's not working, it will prevent you to see an image, you will need to replace it and it's most probable to fix your issue, of course since it's a Samsunt Tv, you need to identify the type of color wheel that you have, it could either be one with a gold bearing or one with a silver bearing, just identify which one is the one you have, and you'll be goo to go

HL-R6768W not turning on. High pitch spin sound. Bad color wheel?


The high-pitched whine is definitely the color wheel.  The early color wheels had problems and many had to be replaced.  As part of the turn-on process, the TV checks for light and then checks for color wheel sync.  If the bearings are wearing out/dried out, it could cause issues with getting the proper color wheel sync, causing the set to not pass the turn on sequence.
Check Sears or partstore.com for a color wheel.  I like sears for experimental replacements since they allow easy returns.
BTW, mine is an early 61".  My color wheel was replaced when I had to replace my Light Engine.  My in-laws 50" was an early one and theirs went out within 2 years.

Referral from Ekse. DLP Samsung spinning noise


the most likely cause would be either the color wheel or the cooling fan. If you listen at the rear cover can you dtermine where the noise is loudest? does the noise instantly go away when you turn the power off after its been on awhile? If so its the color wheel, If not its the cooling fan.

I need help with my DLP TV


If you have verified the votages are there at the color wheel and its not spinning the color wheel is most likely defective. the sound you hear when spinning by hand is most likely the bearing but that shouldnt stop it from spinning. but as i said if the supply voltage is present but it still wont spin. the color wheel must be defective.

Can you help


Hello Brandon B
Great Job at trying to fix your own TV.....Bravo!! Ok, you may very well have a bad Color wheel. You have already change your Ballast and Lamp. The lamp would have been my first step. If you have a defective color this will surely cause the set not to come on. The DM board detects what going on with the color wheel and will not start the lamp. There are 2 types of color wheel listed for this TV.

My DLP TV wont turn on.


As part of the power up sequence on the Samsung HLP-4336W the lamp isn't turned until timing pulses are detected from the color wheel. The color wheel motor is powered through the flat brown four conductor ribbon cable and the timing pulses are detected over the the three conductor ribbon table.
