Re: Loud noise from tv

If this is a very annoying screeching or sqeualing type sound, it is, in my experience, the "color wheel" which is located inside the lite engine. this is a replaceable component whick costs about $110....i've done this repair many times with no problem....

Bulb has gone out and now makes a loud noise

The noise depending on where it came from may be normal. You wont be sure unless a TV repairman checks the boards to know for sure, or you could replace the bulb and hope for the best.

Loud noise coming from Lamp area

The fans in these generaly do not go bad, the part nubmer for the lamp cooling fan is 265943. But my guess is that the color wheel is starting to go out of you light engine. I am not sure if these are still avalable but the part nubmer for it would be 267888. Worst case you could send your engine in for repair engine nubmer should be 265864 or order a repacement try this site. GOOD LUCK

T.v. clicking and wont turn on..


The loud pop you heard is usually indicative of a failed lamp. The clicking noise you hear is likely the ballast trying to turn the lamp on.

My tv is making a loud roaring noise in the back

I had the same problem, it was the color wheel (part # 270916). The bearings go and it starts making noise. It was fairly easy to replace.

I have owned a Sony Grand Wega for about 3 years now and for the past few months the TV has been making a very loud noise. I thought the noise was the fan but came to find out it was not the fan and was...


There is a fan beside the lamp chamber in this TV. There should be 4 fans total, and the one beside the lamp chamber might be making some noise. They are all bearingless fans, so the noise should be relatively low-pitched "whirr" if it is the fan. If the noise is more of a buzzing sound, it could be coming from the lamp driver (ballast) or from the lamp itself. Lamps tend to do strange things toward the end of their life.

If you have never changed the lamp, it is about time. They have a 2.5 -3 year life span with average use.

One thing you can try is to turn the TV on from a cold start, and watch inside the vent areas beside the lamp chamber. If you hear the noise before you see the lamp light up, then it is probably a fan. If it starts as soon as you see the lamp light up, it is the lamp or ballast.

Hope this helps you...

I believe it is the color wheel. The motor might be going bad or it has dirt or dust in it.
