krugie, get it replaced now or the lamp will burn up, be advised that they are expensive to get replaced, not an easy job to do, fix it now or pay much more later is the best advice I can give you, good luck, BMW Rider

This sounds like you may have a bad color wheel. If you want to change this yourself you need to be aware that even with the tv unplugged there are still dangerous voltages in the set.
Changing the color wheel is an involved repair the wheel it's self is very fragile to handle, they can be purchased on line from many sources.

The cost from a service center would be a normal service charge plus about $150.00 for a color wheel. If you have a service center come out to your house explain your problem clearly and they will know they need to bring a color wheel, it will prevent the tech from having to make a second visit.

You need to change the color wheel, if you want a temporary fix use WD-40 on the wheel bearings. This will stop the noise for a month or two....... but eventually you will need a new wheel then go to service mode and align the colors under 'index delay'..........

If set has high pitched or grinding sound it is bad color wheel.

See attached photo. I can tell you how to verify this if the wheel is shattered.

Very common problem in these sets and if you Google the model number with "color wheel" after it you will see where to get it.

You Tube and other sites have video and written instructions for its replacement---THIS IS A DO IT YOUR SELF JOB and takes less than 1 hour. There are some pitfalls to avoid that are not in the video instructions and I can explain them to you.

Wheel turns at 14,000 RPM and the bearings in the tiny motor lock up and the wheel either shatters or turns too slow--set detects too slow and shuts lamp off.

I can step you through the repair and tell you common pitfalls to avoid----EBAY SELLS A LOT OF THESE COLOR WHEELS.

Samsung HLS5086WX/XAA made popping noise and shut off, then made whirring noise.

When my TV did this in the past it ended up being the color wheel. I had someone replace it and it worked fine. I asked it if had to be calibrated after it is installed and he said no. Also make sure the door switch is pushed down when you install the back bulb door. Sometimes this switch can go bad as well.

How do i fix my color on my projection tv samsung hlr5677 everything else is fine just made loud noise and then color was gone

Remove the lamp and look where it faces---the color wheel is there and you need to carefully look at it to see if any of the plastic segments are missing or it is broken.

If even one tiny part of the wheel is gone it can cause this.

Why do i hear a fan noise when i turn on my samsung dlp4663wx/xaa?

Hi, there are fans inside your set to cool the lamp and the dmd section of the light engine, if they are objectionally loud then the "loud" one needs to be replaced, if you are just hearing a fan sound standing next to your set or just after you turn set off, that is normal and nothing to be concerned about, video-tek
