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.

Tv making loud buzzing noise


A common cause are failure of decopling capacitors in the audio section, and or the circuit board power distribution that feeds the audio board. Most of the capacitors are surface mount components. The standard fix is to start by changing the circuit boards that have the defective parts.

If the set is under warranty, call for warranty service. Out of warranty service is expensive for these TV sets.

My background on my screen recently developed a purple hue to it, instead of a white. Can this be corrected?


This is likley a problem with the monitor's signal cable. Try moving the cable around steadily and see if the color suddenly goes back to normal or changes to a yellow hue. If this is the case and you are able to remove both ends of the cable then a replacement can easily be purchased from a local computer store or online. (Try www.amazon.com or www.monoprice.com).

Loud sound would be coming from defective color wheel that is mounted i light engine, next to lamp housing. Replacement of color wheel is required expertise/ experience and professional will do that for you in correct and in safe manner.
Contact local tv repair shop to get color wheel replaced in tv.
Thanks.

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
