Question about Akai PT61DL34 Television

There is a loud humming on my AKAI DLP PT61DL34

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

My akai dlp tv stopped working

Akai is really Samsung---

Remove and inspect lamp to see if shattered inside--it is a cartridge and very easy to remove.

With it out look where the lamp faces and see if the color wheel pictured here is intact (no pieces missing etc).

I have a akai 61 inch dlp tv, my son turned it off went back 1 hour later tv would not come on with remote or by push button on front, checked to make sure power was in cord to back of tv, any ideas what...

I'm assuming that no lights are blinking on the front of the tv and the bulb is in god working order - it has been replaced recently. In that case the tv will have to be opened and the voltages on the power source tested, starting with the ones on the main switching transistor, followed by the ones on the output rails - a good voltmeter will have to be used. If all are there then check the voltage going to the
