    Can a person replace it without a service call? How would you do that?

    Low hum or loud roaring? How loud is it? If a DLP tv, it could be the motorized color wheel going bad.

Yes - I believe a person can with moderate technical skill. I think it's called a light engine. Partstore.com is a decent online resource for parts but it looks a little pricey there. You might dig around and see if you can find one cheaper. It also might not hurt to bug Samsung on the phone about this problem to see if they issued any program/ recall or extended service regarding the issue. I don't believe it will damage anything else, and as time wears on, the color wheel will get slower with colors less acurate on the screen or the bad motor will burn out completely leaving you probably stuck on one color similar to a black and white tv. Good luck and hope you get it fix.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise


First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

We lost the pcture on our Samsung HL-R4266W and we got a blinking "Lamp" in the center of the screen while there was a deep humming noise. I called Fry's Electronics where I had purchased the TV in Dec....


I learned that the problem was a broken color wheel instead of a bad lamp. It appears that the color wheel gets very hot and brittle because of the proximity to the lamp. Eventually, parts of one or more of the glass wheel-blades break off and make noise if they are still next to the wheel.

Problem may be lamp is failing or ballast which operates lamp may be Bad. Could also be Temperature fault from Inoperable fan or Color wheel. Bulb of course is first choice of possible problem followed by color wheel then ballast. Color wheels usually will start making bearing noise when they start to fail. Hope this helps.
