Fixed and very QUIET now!

It was the color wheel drive motor. $90 + s&h

Took about 20 min to replace. The top of the color wheel housing comes off with a couple philips head screws.

The cooling fans can be purchased from or call
Digi-key Corp. at 1-800-344-4539 They don't sell a direct replacemant but they can sell you one that will work. It cost about 19.00 and alot of patience. You have to unplug somethings and remove the chassis. If you have some mechanical ability you can do it.

Why no picture, no sound?

A loud "pop" in any electronic device is the equivalent of a massive heart attack for a human. They normally don't survive them. The noise is from some capacitor somewhere in the device exploding from old age or a power surge. And old age for newer TVs is in the range of 3 years, some even less. It's the way they make them these days...they want you to be buying a new one in just a few years, so they under-engineer the electronics to the bare minimum so they don't have the long-lasting lifetime of the older style electronics we have come to appreciate.

A loud buz slash humming noise that only goes away when the sound

If the installation is as bad by Foxtel as mine was, that is your problem. In my case a loop was created when the filter was left loose in the junction box which was resting against signal booster. Find the point where your Foxtel enters your property. Open the junction box. Check that none of the components are touching each other.

have someone check speaker ground to the TV chassis. Your speakers are picking up reverb from the Video Signal.

Blown Picture

There is not much you can do to fix your plasma. Since the plasma is less then 1 year old, still under Samsung warranty.
I would suggest to call them to fix it.
Good luck.

Vivitek 51 DLP HD HDMI

You should have checked the troubleshooting section of your manual!! Okay, enough scolding. You need a new lamp. I do enjoy my Vivitek, but this is a definite downside of a DLP, especially if you watch a lot of TV. I am on my third lamp already, and they are NOT inexpensive. If you have your TV less than a year, your lamp may still be covered under warranty and may be replaced by Vivitek for free. If you have to buy your lamp, it can easily cost you over $200. This is the new lamp in a whole new assembly, which makes installing it EXTREMELY EASY and will just take a few moments. If you are a little more adventurous and want to save some money, you can buy the lamp alone. You then remove the lamp assembly from the television, open it up (there's several screws to remove), disconnect the old lamp, and reverse the process by making the proper connections with the new lamp and putting the new assembly back together and back into the television. It sounds more complicated than it is.. Biggest rule.-- don't touuch the surface of the lamp with your bare hands. You don't want your oils on the lamp. . And once you put everything back together and restart the TV, reset the timer for the lamp (the manual explains how). The lamp timer is very important for warning you of when to replace the lamp under ordinary conditions, when it does make it through its entire expected life. I don't know if it's appropriate to actually recommend specific vendors for the lamp, but I can if that's okay. email me midlomiss at yahoo dot com

Loud Fan

Yes, fans are somewhat the bane of these new TV technologies. With all the mechanical and optical stuf in them now, TV's are a lot less reliable than the good-ole CRT type.
Fans are easy to replace though.
