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.

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

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 HLN567W whining sound from front bottom middle of tv

Here is the steps that I will suggest you to check.
Mute the sound completely and make sure sound is not coming from speakers. If you totally concluded that sound is not coming from speakers probably its from internal coils on the circuit or high voltage cable leaks statical electricity. that case asking assistance a qualified hands on technician will be best idea.

Good Luck
