Samsung HLN567W DLP whining problem

After 4+ years my Samsung HLN567W started whining in the bottom front. I've read about color wheel and fan noise. Is there any way to tell the difference?

If it is the bottom front, it is the color wheel. To tell for sure, take the back off (fake out the cover switch) and listen to the fans.

I have a Samsung DLPTV, picture is fine. There is a "whining" noise associated with the TV the whole time its on. Stops as TV shuts down, It's about 4 years old and have not replaced lamp. Could this be...

Google your model number; I suspect it is a bad color wheel--lots of these sets have a fan like noise or even a grinding sound sometimes called a high pitched whine.

The part can be customer replaceable and YOUTube has actual video instructions for its replacement.

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help.

My Samsung DLP is making a loud humming noise

Most likely if you are hearing a fan like noise from this DLP it is not the fan.

These sets use a replaceable color wheel that before it fails makes either a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

Part is usually customer replaceable and there are free written instructions and video instructions on YouTube for most models.

It's not likely the fan - it is more likely the color wheel making that noise and causing your set to shut down. See link for more info

Samsung HL-P5063W makes a whining sound and then goes off

The most common failure in the DLP that makes a whining sound would be the color wheel. They cost about $135 + labor because I wouldn't advise changing it by yourself.

High pitched whine when the motor starts

Had the same problem. It quit within about 5 seconds after turning the TV off. Replaced the color wheel and the whine is gone. The picture also looks brighter, which may be due to dusting the projection lens with lens-cleaning compressed air (from a can). The color wheel was about $100 from Samsung parts and it took less than 3 hours to replace. See for good info, and be sure to read the cautions.

Samsung dlp

HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?

Whining Noise - hardrive or fan?

The color wheel is the most common problem when it comes to noise from DLP's. To determine if it is a color wheel or fan: Turn on the set. When the noise starts, turn off the set. If the noise goes away within 5 seconds, then the color wheel is bad. If the noise goes away after one to one and a half minutes after the set was shut off, then one of the fans are making the noise.
