You can replace it your self but it's the re-alignment in the service mode software you will have a major problem with. Not an area to be into if you've never done one before.

I have a Samsung DLPTV, picture is fine. There is a "whining" noise associated with the TV the whole time its on. Stops as TV shuts down, It's about 4 years old and have not replaced lamp. Could this be...


Google your model number; I suspect it is a bad color wheel--lots of these sets have a fan like noise or even a grinding sound sometimes called a high pitched whine.

The part can be customer replaceable and YOUTube has actual video instructions for its replacement.

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help.

My Samsung DLP is making a loud humming noise


Most likely if you are hearing a fan like noise from this DLP it is not the fan.

These sets use a replaceable color wheel that before it fails makes either a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

Part is usually customer replaceable and there are free written instructions and video instructions on YouTube for most models.

THE FAN STARTED WHINING AND NOW THE LAMP WARNING LIGHT IS ON AND IT WONT TURN ON. IS THE FAN A PART I CAN REPLACE MYSELF?


It's not likely the fan - it is more likely the color wheel making that noise and causing your set to shut down. See link for more info

When I turn it on I get a buzzing whine, picture is fine, and now noise has a rattle to it. Would this be the color wheel or maybe the cooling fan?


could be either. remove the lamp. you'll see on the lamp door a plastic protrusion. this is to press the door switch. find that switch and hold it in with a screwdriver. now turn the projector on and look inside the lamp housing in the direction that the lamp would be pointing. do you see the colorwheel spin? it should spin with a high-pitched whir. if you hear the bad noise when it starts up, replace the colorwheel. otherwise, locate the bad fan and replace it.

Samsung HL-P5063W makes a whining sound and then goes off


The most common failure in the DLP that makes a whining sound would be the color wheel. They cost about $135 + labor because I wouldn't advise changing it by yourself.

Whining noise


Color wheel is going or gone out. New colorwheels are air bearing and not mechanical.

Samsung DLP HDTV wide screen


Sounds like the colorwheel (used in DLP projection sets with a single DLP panel) is going bad, either the wheel itself or the bearings on the motor driving the wheel are starting to fail. I would recommend getting a professional to service the TV set.

Whining Noise - hardrive or fan?


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.

Samsung HLM507W will not turn on Alright so here's the deal....I got this TV for free from a guy on craigslist. He said he couldnt get it to turn on. He replaced the lamp, it still didn't work, so he gave up and now I have it. First thing I did was try and turn it on... The TV powered up for about 5 seconds, and then the screen started to flicker all kinds of crazy colors, and it shutdown shortly after with all 3 lights blinking. I figured this probably has to do with the color wheel, so I bought a new one and popped it in. Once installed, the TV started right up, and worked for the entire duration of it being on (approx 7 hours). Now it will not turn on. Here's the startup sequence: -Push power -A couple of audible clicks, and both cooling fans energize. -Lamp does not turn on, and after about 45 seconds of having just the fans running, the TV cycles off and tries to power itself back on. -Rinse and repeat about 3 times total. -After the 3rd attempt, the TV shuts down completely and all 3 lights start blinking in front. -Pushing power does not do anything with the 3 lights blinking. TV must be unplugged and pplugged back in before sequence can be attempted again. Looking for a possible solution/troubleshoot technique. Checked the fuses and they are fine, triple checked all of the connections. Seeing as the lamp doesnt even attempt to energize, Im thinking it could be the ballast, but I'm trying not to dump money into something that might not fix the problem. Thanks for your help!
