There is only one fan inside the tv that is on all the time. it is the chassis. fan located on top of the chassis on the left side on tv looking from back.

Cooling Fan noise


Another possible source for the noise is the Color Wheel. It is spinning at a high rate and the noise will get louder as it wears out. You should be able to replace the part yourself. Take a look here first: http://www.fixya.com/support/t372149-samsung_hlp4663w_color_wheel_replacement

I have the same thing, mine is the cooling fan for the lamp. If the sound continues for a short time after you turn off the TV then this is the most likely cause as the cooling fan will continue to run for a short time to cool off the bulb. I have looked into replacing mine, the part runs around $50 but I can't say yet how easy it is to replace yet.

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..

My TV loudly hums when I turn it on


Ok, I just picked one of these babies up this past weekend. It was cheap, so I didn't bother with the research once i saw that it powered on and seemed to work.

It was sold very cheap because it was throwing codes, which the previous owner was told was a cooling fan. Due to my computer hardware experience, I decided to trace what the problem was. The 2 accessible fans were working flawlessly and silently, the 3rd fan (going to the input components) was stopped due to dust bunnies. A can of air and a complete cleanout solved all issues with the cooling fan codes. The loud annoying hum is the motor that turns the color wheel. Since I had everything out of the TV anyway, I decided to trace the sound which is actually behind the color wheel and sounds more like a bearing or mis-balance in the spinning motor. The color wheel itself is in perfect condition.

In the meantime....annoying hums are fixed simply by turning the volume on your tv or sound system up - it's barely noticable during normal operation and is only really annoying when initally turning it on.

Hope this helps someone.
