Question about Toshiba 52HMX84 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Noisy colorwheel has finally faded to black! Can we replace it ourselves?

Thanks to this forum, we were able to determine the loud hum has been coming from the colorwheel. Already replaced the lamp last year. Called Toshiba and they offered no help. The colorwheel assembly is nearly $600 on-line. Know of any cheaper parts available and can we replace it ourselves if we order one?

You can replace it yourself if you are so inclined. I would suggest talking to the local repair shop. They can get them for a fraction of the cost.

My Samsung TV makes a loud humming sound when I m watching it. It is very annoying. What could the problem be?


Color wheel would be first suspect followed by a fan needing replacement. But if its a real loud humming I would almost bet its the colorwheel.

About a week ago I replaced the lamp in my samsung hls24266 with no incident. Now when I turn the tv on, I hear a very loud humming noise. I tried disconnecting the coaxial cable but it does not go away....


I can't explain the timing of your problem and why it showed up after lamp replacement, but Samsung color wheel failures are usually associated with a rather loud hum. I would removed the back, jumper the lamp door switch and try to determine exactly where the hum is originating from. I think you'll find the color wheel is the culprit.
