Question about Samsung HCM4215W 42" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Samsung HLP5063WX -- 50 inch DLP

Hi--
Have owned this TV for three years and have loved it. Recently, the TV has been making a sound when I turn it on that sounds like a fan revving up. It has become pretty loud so that it drowns out the tv sound. After a few minutes, the sound subsides almost back to normal. But it's annoying ffor those first few minutes and I want to be sure that I'm not damaging the TV by neglecting this issue.

I'm told this is a common fan problem with this model.
Thanks for any insights you can provide!

The problem is the color wheel. It is going bad and soon... it will break and your t.v. will not work. Order the color wheel, I ordered it from partstore.com and replaced it myself. It is not very hard, there are a couple of websites out there that showed me what i had to do.

good luck.

I have the same problem. I called Samsung and talked to a tech who thinks it could be the barrings in the "color wheel" are going out and making the noise. He didn't think it was the fan because that doesn't turn on until the tv warms up. After a 30 minute discussion he felt certain that was my problem. I haven't had it repaired yet so I can't be sure. Hope this helps.
P.S. I don't have any problems with the color.

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W


First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

HAVE GRINDING OR HIGH PITCHED SOUND?

Chris,

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

I suspect that you may need to replace the ballast for the lamp and the power supply board.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.

My Samsung 50" DLP HDTV keeps humming when the DLP lamp comes on.


Hi, you have one of two problems, either the color wheel is going or one of the cooling fans are going, the color wheels are a very common problem in samsung dlp`s, sorry I can`t nail it to a specific part but I`d bet it`s the color wheel as they are notorious for failing in samsungs, video-tek
