No the symptoms are not the same. If you hear a lou whine or buzzing or see the color fluctuating or no color then it is the Color Wheel. If any one of the three fans are bad you will see a CHECK FAN# on the screen. Fans on these sets very rarely go out. The Color Wheels will fail before a fan will. Color Wheel part# is BP96-00250A.

Yes,the problem is the colors wheel it dead.That one of the cause by the colors wheel,other are alots of squiling noises and making very loud buzzing sound.The cooling fan that u think is overheating,does it stop sometimes,when the tv is still on?Yes,than replaced it also,no than it still ok.Just hire the tv repairman,the parts he'll take care of it,don't order the parts,u might get the wrong parts or different sizes,that will not fit in ur tv.

With the back off of the set it will shut off. There is a lever it engages to prevent the set being operated with the back off.

The color Wheel will cause a fan like or high pitched grinding noise. I can tell you where to buy it and also there are on the internet places with written and VIDEO instructions for the replacement in most of these sets.

Put the back on and see if the set again works and still has the noise.

Noise from Samsung rear projection DLP HD TV.


this noise is an indication of a bad color wheel. aa dlp uses a mechanical motor to spin a coloered segment disk. this turn the white light of the lamp into your colors of pictures. Now anything that moves will eventally break. the flickering is also an indication of a color wheel going bad. eventally this will cause the set to shut down. Color wheels can be replaced. i dont know your model so i am not sure of the exact replacement procedure. at my shop we charge average 250 for such a repair

Noise from tv


I had the same problem with a 5065. I purchased and installed a new color wheel and that solved the noise problem. The color wheel has a bearing that gets "dry", and when it fails it does sound like a fan bearing.
