Extremely loud fan...shaky picture

For the past two months the fan has been louder than normal. A couple of days ago the fan got extremely loud and the picture became shaky...like it was about to go out. Finally, it did. You could still hear the sound but the screen went to total blackness. Now when I come home...I can turn on the tv, but after about 30 minutes the same thing happens again. Is this the light engine...or a problem with the cooling fan? Has this happened to anyone else...and if anyone knows whats wrong..what do I need to fix it? Thanks so much for the help guys....

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF STEPS TO FIX THIS PROBLEM WHEN IT OCCURS:
1. clean the filter an fans regularly (every 4-6 weeks or less) to provide an air flow
2: oil the fan bearings annualy with vegetable oil or motor oil
3:regularly change the lamp, it loses intensity as it continues to age, and it produces more heat *** it's arc blackens as the heat reflects back inti the lamp, there have been a few cases of exploding lamps as they were dangerously worn, and lost almost all intensity, check the arc is in good shape every 4 months, this should increase the life of the television aswell, I had a DLP TV that I did these checks with, and it was over warranty by 5 years before it gave up and died!

I would suggest to replace the fun to keep the light running cooler, the reason you loose the video after a period of time is because the fun is not providing enough cooling.
If the fun is noise it means the bearings inside of it are not working well anymore.
Let me know if you need more help.

Furnace sounds louder and feels stronger heat coming through???


The service technician probably installed a larger motor pulley which increases the fan speed to blow more air which results in a slight increase in duct noise which is normal.

Sony Vaio fan making noise


Hi:
Not sure of a user cause for the fan to run full speed, unless you are using the laptop in a high heat environment, or setting it on a bed or other area where it is not getting adequet cooling air. If it does it right away, when you turn it on , cold, then there might be a laptop hardware problem. If you leave your laptop on all the time, then you might be inducing the problem. I had a HP high performance laptop, that the fans would not turn on at all till it ran an hour or so, then they would stay on loud for 10 or 15 minutes, then shut off, then cycle.

Dell 3000 PC is extremely loud like a vacumn cleaner right next to your ear... and gets louder and louder throughout the day. Have ran disk clean, Registry Mechanic, and Disk Defrag. Lots of room left on...


Check your cpu fan, chassis fan, and the fan on the power supply. If all the fans are working then the bearings in the hard drive is about to go out. That is if you are not using a cd or dvd rom.

Sound problems


I have had the identical problem from the beginning. It happens in humid weather. Unplug the set while it's on, wait a second, plug it back in, and turn it on. Sound should be fine.

Unplug, and take cardboard cover at bottom off using 1/4 nut diver. Look at the fan; is there anything touching it? Spin it with your finger. Wait a few minutes then plug back in. Is it comming from the roundish black thing the size of a basketball? If so its not worth fixing?GOODLUCK>>>
