Hi,
As per symptoms that said in question, new tv would be better as this plasma has already served you since 5 years and repair cost could be more then its worth.
Thanks.

Hello,

yes, it can be fixed. I don't think its something you can fix yourself because of the level of fault of the TV, you will be needing the help of a Tech.

Now, you need to consider the cost of fixing with the cost of getting a new TV. If the cost of repair is close or up to the amount of getting another one, I would advice that you look forward to a new TV.

But if the cost of repairs is not up to the price of getting another TV, you can simply go ahead for the repairs.

I wish you good luck.

    So with that out of the way, are there any possible test that can be done to determine what is wrong? Having an idea of cost going forward would be great.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise


First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

Try changing the H/V position in the TV Set Up menu. You can adjust the horizontal and vertical position of the screen and move it enough that the green line disappears from the screen.

Toshiba 56HM195 56 in HD DLP Loud Buzzing and color distortion


If the sound, sounds more like a Hum with some vibration chances are the Cooling fan located behind the lamp is going bad, about $20 to repair, if its a high pitch hum most likely the Color Wheel and if thats the case about $30.
Good luck, my fan just went bad now seeing green dots everywhere, so debating on just junking it out or fixing it, with winter coming on might just breakdown and buy LCD and say the heck with DLP from now on.
Good luck to you..

You can go into the menu and adjust the picture setting. If that does not fix the iss and the set is under a year old then it will still be in warranty. Contact Philips at 1-88- 744-5477 and have them do the repairs under warranty. Don't do it your self because that will void your warranty.
