Its likely to be the color wheel which when fails can do several things: A high pitched whine or what is often described as a fan like sound.

Since the set monitors the speed of the wheel if it slows down even a little image may look odd or dark.

you can at worst hear a grinding sound and it means segments in the wheel are shattered or missing

Good news is it is readily available and many average people can replace it---you tube even has video instructions for most of the Samsung models for this.

Only two models were made and Google the model number with Color wheel to locate the one your set uses.

I have a Samsung 50 inch DLP tv bout in 2007. the picture quality is still good, but after it's turned on it will make a humming noise for up to 20 minutes. After being on for while it will cut off and...

Usually a color wheel will not quiet down after warmup----the kind of sound it makes is like a fan or a high pitched whine and in some cases even a grinding sound.

It is possible for it to shut the set down as the set monitors its speed and if it changes or runs too slow or fast it will trigger the shutdown.

Part of the optical light engine is a metal box that the two leads from the color wheel plug into, it will not cause noise but if bad the set will either lock up (have to be unplugged) or refuse to turn off/on etc.

You do not want that unit to be your problem as you would have to replace the light engine(the part is sold alone but is almost as much as the whole light engine)

Let me know if you have comments or questions.

There is no picture and there is a tick tick ticking noise coming from inside the TV

The ticdk tick sound is probably the switched mode power supply making noise due to the fact that there is a shorted component inside(may be the horiz. output transistor). You may need to have service personell look at unit and get an estimate...this is older set n may not be worth repair

A 1995 60 inch rca good picture and sound. Then it started a cracking noise and a hissing sound, then the picture went blurry. then it was nice picture and sound, then it died. took the back off and turned out the lights. Plugged the tv in and out from the wall socket and there was a sparking noise and a small arc when i plugged it in and out a few times ,at the part that the power plug plugs into.The white part that is beside the white power plug part has thick red wire coming out of it and goes into another plug that has more red wires in it. but the big white part beside the power plug part looks burnt and has black powder on it. that part is probably the problem but maybe not, what it the name of that part and how much would it cost and is it plugged in or soldered.

Samsung 21inch tv turned of while watching tried fuse still not working making a low ticking noise with the back removed?

is the noise coming from Flyback (a big greyish color unit inside the board, having a connector from picture tube).
if yes, then it could be caused by this..
