Eventually the set will refuse to power up, better to change the color wheel, as it could shatter and cause further damage in the light tunnel

Remove the lamp and look at the color wheel that faces it.

If wheel is shattered or missing pieces set will know it is not moving or moving too slow and shut set and lamp off.

Not all color wheels when fail make a sound

Hi,If your tv is a dlp you might be experimenting a color wheel problem.The color wheel is a rotating disc that has a gamma of colors it spins at high rpms.The light of the lamp goes through it to create the colors on your tv.When it starts to go bad you will get color distortion ,black and white picture and sometimes you will hear humming noises.

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

Lost color, loud buzzing sound HLP4663W


This can be the colour wheel assembly, or the servo drive board, or a fault on the circuit board that does the sync processing for the colour wheel.

You will have to have the set properly serviced.

Samsung dlp tv hls 5688w problem


Possibly a bad fan. operate the set for at least an hour to warm it up then shut it off does the noise continue for a moment? If so its probaly the fan for the lamp that is making the noise.

HDTV Rear Projection


The color wheel is the most common problem when it comes to noise from DLP's. To determine if it is a color wheel or fan: Turn on the set. When the noise starts, turn off the set. If the noise goes away within 5 seconds, then the color wheel is bad. If the noise goes away after one to one and a half minutes after the set was shut off, then one of the fans are making the noise.
