The noise you describe is a color wheel. Dont know the cost for your set or if its even avaliable since I cant find it listed. Most color wheels for that size set run several hundred dollars.

It's not the lamp, most of the time they suspected it and the fan gone to malfunction when encountered this kind of symptoms but the fault came from the color wheel. You have to replaced it to resolve the issue.

definately sounds like a color wheel, You can tell by listening to where the sound is coming from if its coming from the right side when looking in the rearabout six inches in from the left side in the middle of the light engine is where the color wheel and housing are located. the housing is held in with two screws and then unplug the 2 wire cables. You can get the replacement color wheel from www.tvrepairworld.com which has instructions.

fribue,

I am not an expert but I had a similar situation with my 55. My 55 was only making a droning sound when I turned it on. I contacted the company and they told me it could be excess carbon build up in the exhaust fan.

I accessed the exhaust fan from the back of the heater. I took a pencil with an eraser stuck it in the exhaust port and gently begun to spin the fan using the pencil eraser. After a minute or so the exhaust fan starting moving very freely. Then it worked like a charm

I hope this helps.

The color wheel on this set is not available. First thing I would do is replace the lamp. MCM electronics has a Philips for $99.00. The hum could have been the lamp fan which is common on these sets. There is a kit from Hitachi the includes some rubber dampers. What I commonly see on these sets is when the lighr engine is going bad(this is where the color wheel is) the color gets a green,bue or yellow tint and trhe picture may get dim. its rare that the color wheel stops working on this model. Call adifferent tech for sevice. Anyone with experience on these sets will know whats up.

Model 5063W - loud noise


The picture is pink, that would point more toward the color wheel, and you can see the fan through the vents in the back and you can go from there. It sounds more like the color wheel since you have a picture malfunction.

HLN5065W picture turns black and white and shuts down


Sounds like your color wheel may be at fault. Do you ever hear any unusual noises coming from the rear of the TV? Color Wheels usually make a humming sound as they go bad. This is because the tiny bearings in the color wheel motor have begun to misshape from use and heat. This is a known issue in this TV! Expect to spend $300-500 to have this serviced by a service company. If you have the right stuff, you can do it yourself. If you search the web, you'll find a color wheel for this TV for under $100, but installation can be tricky.

Your TV may have a new type color wheel assy that has a slightly different configuration but the result is the same.

Color fades out on tv


I have the same tv and the same problem (color banding, incorrect colors, colors blinking) occured after I replaced the lamp. I had a tv repairman take a look at my unit and he said the color index was incorrect, the tv doesn't know the correct colors to display. The best way to fix that problem is to replace the "light engine". The repairman replaced the "light engine" to my tv and everything is working great. My tv was still until warrenty so I don't know how much a new "light engine" would have cost.
