My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise

First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

Why do i hear a fan noise when i turn on my samsung dlp4663wx/xaa?

Hi, there are fans inside your set to cool the lamp and the dmd section of the light engine, if they are objectionally loud then the "loud" one needs to be replaced, if you are just hearing a fan sound standing next to your set or just after you turn set off, that is normal and nothing to be concerned about, video-tek

Loud noise, then shuts down after seconds , fans look ok

On U_Tube, there is a video that shows the replacement proceedure. I understand it is quite good. My neighbor used it and it went in pretty easy. If you Google the model # it should be able to give you a link to it.
Good luck !!,
Hope this helps,

Samsung DLP TV is making a buzzing sound. Sounds like something spinning. Can hear it speed up to full spend when turned on and slow down and stop when powering off the TV. Loud at times.

More than likely this is the cooling fan. I have a Samsung DLP myself, and at times, I can hear the fan running also. There could be something wrong with the fan, but I kind of doubt it. Just make sure that the TV is in a spot with lots of ventilation....otherwise, you might have to live with this noise.

Hope this helps!!

Loud whirring. Not the fan.

The fan noise is normal on this set. The lamps are cooled via this method. Your users manual explains this issue..and it is the fan as you can see it slows down after the tv is switched off..
