Lamp fan removal

My DLP was Dx as having a bad lamp fan. I ordered a fan and thought I could take care of the problem based on the location of the fan(behind color wheel/facing right side). I removed the four screws on the fan ***. and it will not budge. Am I missing some screws? Is there a trick?? There is not enough tolerence to simply lift the top of the bracket off to replace the fan.

Thanks for your help,

There may be a brace the needs to be removed and then there will be a screw below it that is still holding in the fan, do you see any such brace and screw?

If the fan was bad it would take a bit more than 10 minutes for the lamp to be destroyed as the set monitors the temp of the lamp constantly.

I would actually suspect if a genric lamp you got two bad ones OR the Lamp ballast that fires the lamp is bad, ballast is most likely the issue.

Samsung HLR5064W DLP TV load vibrating noise like a fan blade hitting something, lamp light is one, Tv will light up but discolored

Sounds like a bad color wheel----remove lamp---the wheel faces it--look for missing pieces or the wheel shattered---these are known for the wheel making a loud high pitched sound or even a grinding sound if the wheel shatters.

if wheel bad You Tube has video instructions for replacing it---seen several people able to do this themselves in about a hour. Google the model number to ("color wheel") to locate a replacement on the internet.10_24_2012_3_58_01_pm.jpg

My screen went black but I can still hear everything I removed the back panel and the lamp does come on but still no picture

If there is lamp ON and there is no picture at all, the DLP drive IC on the main board has damaged. Normally, damage to this IC will also couse to DLP [Digital Light Processor] also may get damaged. A thorough check to your Tv is needed. As it is DLP based one, proper care should be taken to repair this set. If DLP drive has damaged, it will be best o repalce the porcessor board as card basis. Anyway, keep in mind that the circuit for this tV is very complicated, such that even an expereinced service technician will also take time to pinpoint the exact fault point. A very high quality multimeter is needed to measure the voltages at the DLP board. Moreover experience is a must to do work with this TV. As far as lamp il ON, there is no fault to its power supply board. The fault lied in the main board itself. If you are aware in electronics, inform me. I'll assist you firther. Otherwise get this TV repaired by any experienced service parsonal or by the authorised service center for Samsung at your town. Authorised service center will have all sophisticated testing equipements ot do this service and it will be perfect in all respect. OK

Your Lamp maybe going out replace it,also CK your Fan right behind lamp set will stop coming on if it is not running, Fan could be bad.Order Lamp on E-Bay I found lamps for 82.00 fixing to order one for My TV which is also a Samsung.Last TV I repair that did like that it was the Fan.But always remember lamp only has 5,000 to 8000 playing hours.

TV Magnavox 50ML8105D/17 Problem

I have the same problem my DLP TV would shut off after 30 minutes or less all red LED's. Solution: The fan on the lamp assembly was not turning at the proper RPM (bearing going bad) so it was going into overtemp mode. The original part number was a SUNON KDE1209ptv3 12v 1.3W I had a hard time finding one to match that spec. DIGI-KeyCorp ( was able to cross reference it to a 3 lead P11034-ND part number (NMB-MAT model fba09a12L).

I Installed the fan and problem went away.
Remove the lamp from the lamp assembly
Remove the back panel.
From the back, slide the main circuit board to the left (loose one screw)
Remove the power interlock on the lamp assembly (2 screws)
Disconnect Lamp assembly cooling fan lead.
Remove the 4 silver slotted screws on the lamp assembly, 2 in the front and 2 in the back.
Carefully remove the lamp assembly from the rear. WATCH the Mirror.
Remove fan, cut leads and solder or **** splice on to the new fan.
Repeat steps for installation
