There is a noise coming from the back of the TV. It sounds like the fan is making a very loud noise when it comes on and goes off. It won't even stop when we turn the TV off. Any idea how serious a problem this is?

You can attempt to remove the back cover, but there is a very delicate mirror in the back. I'd just move it away from the wall, used compressed air to clean out the fans, and put everything back together. Just make sure you don't damage the color wheel or light engine.

Had similar problem. Thought it was the lamp. Examined old lamp but it appeared to be good. Ordered a new one anyway. Changed the lamp but the TV screen would not come on. It would make the usual noise as it was going to come on normally but it would cycle 3 times & then turn off. The LED lights in the front panel would indicate a defective lamp. Then read about the ballast. Changed the ballast & still same problem. Tried starting the TV without the lamp installed & noticed that the color wheel did not spin. Removed old color wheel & discovered it was broken. This appears to be the cause of all of my problems. I wish I new earlier of the test-turn on the TV without the lamp being installed & check to see if the color wheel is spinning. Would have save money on the lamp & ballast.

SOURCE: check fan 3 comes on samsung DLP tv

Its a tiny fan inside the silver cabinet where all the plug in jacks are. It keeps the pc boards in the cabinet cool. Most of the time you can blow out the dust in the fan with canned air. If this doesnt work, you will need to replace it. Partsstore.com carries them. You have to get the exact match since the TV reads the amperage so computer cooling fans wont work.

I have cleaned the fans in the back of the tv and the light still blinks four times. I have lubricated the fans as well. What do I do now?


You said you "cleaned" the fans. Have you tried removing the large fan -- on the left side when you are standing in the back of the TV -- and actually pulling out the fan itself? One side of the fan casing has a sticker -- with the model number written on it -- and the other side is the fan itself. Carefully pull the fan out -- it's held by magnets, no screws -- then clean the spindle thoroughly with a Q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Also, clean the opening on the casing itself -- the hole is too small for a Q-tip, so use a toothpick, again dipped in rubbing alcohol.

For additional cleaning, use compressed air to blow the hole. After the alcohol dries, use another Q-tip and spray a little WD40 on one of the tips. Sparingly apply the WD40 to the fan spindle. Place the fan back into the casing, screw the cover back on and try the TV again.

Good luck!

Samsung HL56186W Fan question


It's been a while since I had to clean the fans, from memory, there was a small fan close to the base of the removable lamp assembly, and the larger one with a shroud directing the airflow round the lamp.

Hope that helps.

I would recommend replacing the fan, cleaning it doesn't solve the problem...If it does, it's only a temporary fix. Replacement fan is around $30 and easy enough to do yourself...

SONY XBR1 SXRD


I get the same problem (4 flashing red lights).
I done some internet troubleshooting and narrowed it down to an overheated power circuit card/fan issue.

It turns out one of the fans is failing and will not rotate at the appropriate speed to cool the power circuit card, this will kick out the 4 flashing lights from the diagnostics.

In lieu of replacing the fans I have a temporary solution:
For my TV (kdsr50xbr1) the fan in question is located on the far left side (facing the rear). You will see a grill on the back of the TV showing you where the fan is located.

First, get a can of compressed air and blow it into every fan. This will clear away a lot of dust and help the fans move easier.
There is one blower type fan located inside the TV, remove the back panel and look for a tall yellow circuit card just to the left off the center of the TV. Behind that card is a blower (stands upright looks like a tube). Blow air into that blower, you will see a lot of dust come through the duct and out where the large fan in the center is located.
Put everything back together. and provided the fans aren't too far gone the TV should be working again.

Also, if the issue comes back, try this:
When you turn on the TV, shoot a short squirt of compressed air into the fan (Far left facing the rear). This will give it a kick start and bring it up to speed.

It is important to note that the compressed air cans do contain a liquid and as such are not compatible with electronics when they are plugged in. Try your hardest to keep the can upright and not allow the liquid to squirt out where it shouldn't. If it does it will evaporate in a few seconds.

Ok, relatively long post, to summarize:

1. Open back of TV, blow compressed air into every fan to clean them.
2. Blow air into whichever fan is causing problem if it happens again.
3. Keep the can upright if the TV is still plugged in. Don't sue me if you fry your TV.
4. If this doesn't work (has for me) replace fans

TV will not power on 4 red blinks


I found the following suggestion on avsforum.com and it worked perfectly (going through the lamp door).

I'm a longtime lurker not much of a poster, but this happened to me to yesterday. I used civicsixxx's advice and this works. However you don't have to take anything apart. All I did was take out the lamp then put your hand in carefully to the right and you'l feel the fan just give it a spin and plug back in the light and the TV your good to go. Hope this helps.

Sony SXRD Projection TV


I have the 50" SXRD TV and have expereienced many of the same problems as other owners. Sony replaced the optical block at no charge after the screen yellowing effect took place. Recently, I have the TV shut down with the flashing red light blinking in sequences of 4. After unplugging the TV for a few minutes, replugging it, and turning it back on, it worked again. However, this was not a pemanent solution as the problem returned. After reading several posts here, I turned the TV to look into the fans and voila, the one on the left was not spinning.

I took the back off of the TV (9 screws) and took apart the fan housing to vacuum everything. In addition, I vacummed everything else I could see. After putting it back together, the problem was solved. Save yourself a repair call. Get out a phillips screwdriver and a vacuum cleaner. Thanks to the posters on this site!!

Have you contacted Hunter? Have you turned off the wireless internet to see if fans work? You may have to try another internet brand or try moving to another part of the house.
