1999 Pontiac Sunfire 5 speed won't start. Replaced spark plugs and checked ignition coil (fine). Sounds like it wants to turn over but makes a "whining" noise. Please assist. Thank you!


Is the engine turning over with the key in the start position? If the engine is not spinning over and you hear a whining noise, the starter is not engaging the flywheel. If the engine is turning over with the starter engaged, the engine has most likely jumped time that creates low or no compression which results in the whining noise.

yes ... you could have a color wheel problem.. this set get color from a spinning wheel called a color wheel.. when you unplug this and plug this back in you should hear a whining motor sound. During the "bootup" sequence this motor spins this wheel to test to see if it reaches speed. This is a motor that moves and anything that moves eventally dos not. i see this problem often in the shop and if it is the problem there not all that difficult repair. the hardest part is finding the color wheel

Projection tv has really loud buzz or hum


You may not see any deterioration in the picture when the color wheel begins to go bad. The noise will get louder and eventually, it will shut down or the wheel will shatter while the motor continues to spin. If that happens, you'll have a black and white picture.

If its a Samsung DLP that is mercury vapor lamp driven, its a safe bet the color wheel is going bad.

Negative image and then black and won't turn off!


The negative image on the screen is the DMD board (Digital Mirror Board). The cycle sound is the color wheel trying to spin but if the DMD board is going bad, it will effect the color wheel and not spin. There for your image will freeze.
