Have sound no picture fan makes noise then stops

If lamp, color wheel (if used), or a number of other things are wrong set will do just as you describe.

remove lamp and inspect to see if shattered inside.

with lamp removed look where it faces (may need a mirror) to see if the wheel is there and or shattered or broken.

first two things to look at. Lamps in general have a 2,000 hour life=average user that is 2 years.

Something is moving by lamp is making noise

The color wheels are famous for needing replacement when the bearings wear out. Thats usually the only thing other than the Lamp fan that can cause noise near the lamp.

Hd50lpw164 noises

You are right it is the color wheel that is causing all that noise. The color wheel has to replaced, oil or WD will not fix it. To get a replacement it is best to call the manufacture and they will ship the part directly to you.

Color wheel

as a technician i dont feel the color wheel is a difficult repair. HOWEVER ..color wheel relacement means sometimes depending on model removal of light engine. which means you can get into alignment issues. then once the color wheel is replaced then it too has to be alligned.
