Question about Samsung HL-R6167W 61" HDTV

1 Answer

Buzzing Noise We've owned the Samsumg 61" DLP for 2 years now and we've noticed an annoying buzzing noise coming from the TV. We opened up the lid for lamp replacement and used compressed air to clear out the dust and it still doesn't do the job. Does anyone know how to fix it? The noise makes watch TV unbearable. I'm getting a headache watching TV =(
