52HM95 - Color Wheel noise - and then it stopped ....

I have a 2.5 year old 52HM95 Toshiba. About a week ago, we started hearing the high pitched noise that appears to be associated with at bad color wheel. I scheduled a tech to come out, but he told me over the phone that it was likely the color wheel and would cost $800 to repair, so I contemplated just buying a new TV (shelled out for 3 bulbs already). In the mean time however, the noise has stopped completely. The tech had indicated that if this happened ...I was doomed....but it has been going a couple of days now working fine ...... Should I be worried ???? Is there anything else I can check to see the state of my color wheel ?

Thanks!

My toshiba mod. 52hm95 lamp cooling fan is making noise and i am having trouble locating a replacement


Fan like noise may be a fan or the color wheel---color wheel spins at high speed(lamp faces it) and when failing you will have a high pitched or fan like sound---hard failure and you will hear a grinding sound.

High pitch whine when tv started then it lowers in pitch

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W


First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

HAVE GRINDING OR HIGH PITCHED SOUND?

Hi I have a Samsung HLN467W, a 46" DLP TV. And after 50-60 minutes, it starts to flicker white, like lightning flashes. But the whole screen is not blank white, it's more like the images are...


Hi,
It seems color wheel problem in your tv that gets problem after some time and you hear high pitch noise along with picture flicker.
Color wheel need to be replaced to solve this issue. Required color wheel is available with PartStore.com (click to view image of part and price info) and it is job of qualified tv repairman because light engine will take apart for that.
Hope these info will help you.
Thanks.
