Noise in color wheel and has actually quit working now

Our son has had some problems with noise for a while and seems to have quit working and says it's the color wheel. Understands there could have been a recall but we are unable to find it. Wants to know if parts are available to fix or if it is worth it.
I do not have a model # as this is the only info we have. I just want to try and help to get this taken care of.

It likely isn't worth fixing because the repair will probably cost a minimum or $200 to $250 and a new 42" LCD at walmart.com is only $578. Do you want to put half of the cost of a new LCD into one that will still be out of warranty after you repair it?

Samsung dlp tv HLP5663W makes loud noise


Yes, the set uses a color wheel and the lamp faces it.

The wheel turns at over 8,000 rpm and is well known for this problem=bearings in the tiny motor go bad.

The high pitched or fan like noise (classic description) is this part.

Sooner or later the wheel (plastic colored segments) will shatter and set will shut down lamp and not operate---set monitors the speed of the wheel so if it slows down or stops it knows.

The part is readily available on the internet (Google the model number with "color wheel").

This can be a do it yourself repair and You Tube has video instructions for replacing the wheel by model number.

There are two common pitfalls to avoid which the instructions that come with the replacement part usually do not mention---if you decide to do this repair let me know and I will explain.

Honda Pilot 111,000 miles. Wheel or tire noise?


it can be any of the above, rotate the tires and see if the noise location seems to change, but the last thing i would suspect is the CV, they just click when turning, the wheel bearing is my choice here, they roar, tires make a diff noise.

Color wheel or did i break something else?


Usually a bad color wheel will produce a high pitched sound or even a grinding noise; some sets may actually shut down if the wheel is bad or shattered.

To determine if you have a bad color wheel:
  1. Turn set off and wait for main fan to shut off.
  2. Unplug the set.
  3. Remove the lamp door and then remove the lamp.
  4. In the direction the lamp faces you will see a round opening; the color wheel is facing this opening. It is a round plastic wheel with colored segments—we want to look to see if any of the segments are missing; a shattered wheel should be clear to see.
I have also posted the general instructions for Do it yourself replacement of this part in the TIPS AND TRICKS section of this site.

I will attach a photo of the color wheel for you to know what you are looking for----

Loud humming after turning on.


I have sort of the same problem...there was a loud snap(kind of electical spark like) then the unit started humming loudly which changes sound as you move the unit around. The picture remains clear and the fan is quiet in shut down mode...still the wheel you think?

Loud humming noise when you turn on the TV


There are only two parts in this set that have moving parts and can create noise. One is the color wheel and the other is the fan. There are actually two fans. One you can easily see from the back of the set when you remove the cover and the other is not visible. The most likely cause of this hum is the color wheel. It has bearings and they wear out. You need to be careful when or if you attempt to replace it. There are actually two types of color wheel for this model. Samsung doesn't tell you this. One has air bearings and the other has ball bearings. Mine had ball bearings and I ordered the part I thought was correct. I replaced it and it worked for about at day then failed. I thought maybe I had a defective part and returned the color wheel and ordered another one. Same result. I did some further research and ended up ordering the ball bearing type of color wheel instead of the air bearing type. There is a website that shows you the difference.
This seems to have resolved the issue. Good luck. It's not too difficult to change this color wheel but you do have to dismantle the set a bit and it helps to be somewhat mechanically inclined. make sure to take notes as you take it apart so you remember how to get it back together.

Our Samsung HL-P4663W DLP is makes noise and shuts off


It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.

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.

I am wondering if this sound might be your color wheel spinning. The color wheel often makes a low humming noise as it spins. Try checking to see if this is not the source of your noise. You need the color wheel to generate the colors needed to turn the B&W picture generated by the DLP into a color picture.

Thank you,
