Question about Akai PT61DL34 Television
I had just replaced the lamp to my Akai Dlp TV & it works fine it just has a loud humming to it. It started happening about a week before the lamp went out. I figured that when i change the lamp out it might fix the problem with the humming also. Any advice on what might be the problem?
Most likely the color wheel is the problem. The color wheel is exactly what it sounds like, it is a wheel with multiple colors on it that spins at a very high RPM to produce the colors. When the bearings start to go, it starts to hum and will be very high pitched right before it breaks. Once it breaks, you will only see black and white images. It isn't that hard to replace for anyone who does general fix-it problems around the house, just make sure the tv is unplugged overnight before touching anything in it. You should be able to get a new color wheel through the manufacturer. Let me know how this works out for you. Benjamin
