Samsung HL-R6167W DLP color problem/buzzing noise

My set suddenly started to buzz horribly loud (coming from back of unit) and the colors changed to a mostly purple hue? Any ideas?....is it possibly my color wheel gone bad?

    During start up, my HLR6167W has a loud noise similar to gears grinding in a car. Took the back cover off and it didn' sound like the fan at all. I've read a lot of other complaints about the color wheel going bad. Does anybody have a similar problem?

My 3 yr old Samsung DLP has the same buzzing noise, had a tech out today and he said "color wheel". Thank goodness I purchased that expensive warranty, This is my 4th repair in 3 years.

My samsung dlp has a loud buzz/hum noise when it comes on and them remains though somewhat less loud


The buzz can be the color wheel or one of the cooling fans going bad. The only other thing that could cause a buzz would be the ballast going bad. Call a local repair shop to further diagnose the problem

My 61" Samsung DLP has loud Buzzing sound - Everything else ok


There are only 2 moving parts on a dlp tv the color wheel and the fan. The color wheel needs to be replaced about every 4 to 5 years. Some start to make noise and others like mine blow up with a bang. Go to utube to get instructions on how to replace it only cost me for part $100 good luck
