Question about RCA Televison & Video

1 Answer

My RCA 52inch DLP TV has 5 blink red lights and is making a loud buzzing sound. I am pretty sure it's the color wheel, but from your experience, could this be it?

    Thanks, some of the guys here were trying to figure out why it's buzzing instead of whirring.

The loud buzzing could mean something is stuck in the color wheel or that it's shattered. Either way, you're going to need a new color wheel, I agree.

I own a Samsung HL-R5067W 50'' DLP. Set is about 3 years old. Recently I heard a loud pop while viewing, picture distorted, but never went blank. I turned set off. When turned on again a loud whining noise...


Check your color wheel. There is a DIY guide for replacing the color wheel. Mine did the same thing yours is and my color wheel was all busted up. Unfortunately after replacing the color wheel my set continues to do the same thing, but this could mean I need to replace the ballast as well.
