Re: shuts off

Sounds like the high voltage transformer
or could be high voltage off the tubes.

not a good idea to keep this running as it will cause more damage, best to have service tech look at this since it's high voltage.

Be careful. This same problem burned a mark in the Blue crt on my pro730HD. Three months and the Service Tech and Pioneer have been unable to determine the cause (they claim). In the process they have blown two more crt's.

When your tv goes off, try turning it back on using the main power button instead of the remote. The button should be behind a flip-down strip below the screen. When it is working again, look for any faint colored spots in the picture most prominent on light backgrounds. Mine is a yellow Y in the center of the screen.

If there are no spots, I would suggest you don't use the TV until you get it fixed because eventually it will damage your crt ($750). Of course, as I said, they have been unable to fix my problem and I have had no TV for three months.

Samsung model HLP4663WX/XAA with loud buzzing noise, need to know which part to replace.

See attached photo: you have a bad color wheel----it turns at about 12,000 rpm and bearings in the tiny motor go bad.

High pitched or fan like sound is classic symptom.

The wheel is available on the internet and You Tube has video instructions by model number for replacing it---Google the model number for the part number for your set to locate the part and instructions.

This for most people is a do it yourself job---takes like 45 minutes start to finish.

If color wheel slows too much set will shut down as its speed is monitored and the wheel can even shatter causing shutdown of the set.

Loud buzzing sound

It is the color wheel. They are usualy less than $150. I recommend having a Samsung authorized service center do the work as it is very difficult for someone without the experience doing this particular job. Labor cost should be $300 or less.

TV made a very loud pop and shut off. When trying to turn it on again, just get a buzzing sound.

Sounds like you blew the horizontal transister in the CRT's high voltage circuit. It's common with tv's that are old or full of dust on the inside.

Loud Buzzing Sound

since you changed the lamp my next thought is that the color wheel has failed,,,most good road techs can replace it in the home..the cost would be between 220.00 and 350,00 depending on the company...
