Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

Samsung DLP HDTV wide screen

I am hearing a loud grinding type noise coming from the inside of the tv. It sounds like some type of fan (maybe) that maybe going bad. I can still watch tv, the picture and program sounds are fine, its just that you can hear this grinding type noise. The noise that I am hearing is similar to the noise that you hear when you are using a tile saw while cutting tile. Thanks for any help offered.

Sounds like the colorwheel (used in DLP projection sets with a single DLP panel) is going bad, either the wheel itself or the bearings on the motor driving the wheel are starting to fail. I would recommend getting a professional to service the TV set.

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W


First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

HAVE GRINDING OR HIGH PITCHED SOUND?

When i turn the tv on ,sometimes i hear a high pitched fan noise.


Hi, bearings in color wheel are about to fail, get it fixed now before the wheel shatters the prisms all over the inside of the tv which of course will then cost you more to fix, video-tek

Why do i hear a fan noise when i turn on my samsung dlp4663wx/xaa?


Hi, there are fans inside your set to cool the lamp and the dmd section of the light engine, if they are objectionally loud then the "loud" one needs to be replaced, if you are just hearing a fan sound standing next to your set or just after you turn set off, that is normal and nothing to be concerned about, video-tek

noise you are hearing can be the fans inside with bad bearings and or what im assuming given the info you gave.More likely the motor inside the optics engine (color wheel) is making noise..This will also cause picture problems..very expensive to repair..
