Question about Toshiba 62HM95 62" HDTV

1 Answer

Loud noise When I turn the tv on there is a loud noise when the color wheel of fan is starting (not sure which one). After it gets going there is a slight hum, but not as bad as when I first turned the tv on. The hum continues for a couple minutes after the tv is turned off. I may need a new lamp soon. Could a new lamp solve the problem? The humming noise seems to be coming from the same area as the lamp. Or is this the color wheel or a fan? If it is the color wheel or the fan, what are the average repair costs for those things? Thank you for any insight.

Re: Loud noise

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

I hope this helps

Loud sound would be coming from defective color wheel that is mounted i light engine, next to lamp housing. Replacement of color wheel is required expertise/ experience and professional will do that for you in correct and in safe manner.

Model 5063W - loud noise

The picture is pink, that would point more toward the color wheel, and you can see the fan through the vents in the back and you can go from there. It sounds more like the color wheel since you have a picture malfunction.

Loud Humming Noise

Samsung is notorious for having the motor on the color wheel burn out. If the color on the tv starts to fade or shift tones when the rev'ing or noise is happening then you'll know its the color wheel. There are only two moving parts in this set, the color wheel and the fans. If you're smelling something, it could be either. Take the back off the set and put a piece of tape on the lamp door switch and turn the set on. Try to pinpoint the source of the noise. If its a fan, no big deal, Radio shack should have a replacement. If it sounds like its comming from under the set, dig a little deeper and try unhooking the color wheel motor, not as easy as I am making it sound but either way the fan is about $20 to fix and the color wheel is about $100. Sure beats a $400 tech bill. If you get stuck, comment back and I'll send pictures of the dismantle.

Big Screen gets loud, mad and turns off

without a model number, i can't be much help. if this is a newer dlp or similar tv, the fan is probably going out. some newer tv's have a fan that is part of the light assembly, some have a separate fan.. the loud whirring noise is usually caused by bad bearings or the blades of the fan may have become unbalanced, either way, the fan making the noise will need replacing. the color going is usually caused by the lcd or dlp overheating and/or the lamp overheating.

if the tv is out of warranty, remove the back panel, locate the fan making the noise, and search for a replacement. if you have a model number, i can check around and see if i can find the part number for you.

hope this helps,
