Samsung LNT3253H is making a high-pitched noise

My Samsung LNT3253H is making a high-pitched noise after it's been on for a while. The TV is only a month old. I have it in an entertainment center and am wondering if it is getting too hot, causing the high-pitched noise. Is that the possible cause? Any others? Thanks.

I had the same issue. The tech that came out today removed the transformer on the power supply board, "resealed" it, and replaced it (re-soldered the same part back on) -- the transformer apparently vibrates because it was not properly sealed. BTW, mine was about the fifteenth that he has performed this repair on within the past couple of months -- all 32" and 26" Samsungs. Now, it appears to be absolutely silent.

The high-pitched noise you are hearing is the color wheel. It is a very common problem in Samsungs.

I have a Samsung HL-P5067W/HL DLP tv. When I turn it on cold the lamp light blinks on and off. The fan makes a high pitch sound a relay clicks the TV goes back to standby and the lamp light starts blinking...


This sounds like a lazy lamp--that is getting hard to start. Try a new lamp first. If you are inclined to do so--get a bard bulb and install in the old lamp housing and save some money. Get a real PHILLIPS bulb--it will last a while--compared to cheap generics that are good for maybe 6 months !!

Toshiba HD ready TV ct 90158 makes high pitched sound


A high pitch sound can be a capacitor losing power it would sound a bit like a fire work. most have back up on the board but it put more pressure on them the more times you use the tv. would check them and replace. all of them can be 5 in a row in some models.

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?

Hi I have a Samsung HLN467W, a 46" DLP TV. And after 50-60 minutes, it starts to flicker white, like lightning flashes. But the whole screen is not blank white, it's more like the images are...


Hi,
It seems color wheel problem in your tv that gets problem after some time and you hear high pitch noise along with picture flicker.
Color wheel need to be replaced to solve this issue. Required color wheel is available with PartStore.com (click to view image of part and price info) and it is job of qualified tv repairman because light engine will take apart for that.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.

I have a humming noise coming from my 5 year old samsung 50 inch dlp tv , I have replaced the lamp 6 months ago so what else couyld the noise be coming from? I have a great picture and color.


If it is a high pitched whine it is most likely the color wheel; the bearings in the wheel go bad and if you google the model number with color wheel you will find it.

The whine is the early stages of the wheel failing; when it goes out you will either have shutdown or a grinding sound.

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help.

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

Tv makes high pitch noise


Seems like your television is doing the same thing as mine. I dont have a resolution but this may help from it clonking out completly. Leave it alone for now. My television started doing this months ago and I rarely even used it for the first two years due to deployment. One day it startd the high pitch, and i ignored it because i rarely turned it on besides when company came. About a month later it completly clunked out. Now i only get the green power light. NO pic, No volume or anything. Just that loud screech. Eventually it will go out, causing more problems. Usually you can go to a repair shop, get the piece name from them and then order and fix it yourself. The shop is going to do the same thing as you will, except charge you more for having ordereing it when you can do so yourself. Shops here charge about $60 bucks to let you know what it is... Shouldnt be a big change where you are.
