Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

I have a Nice Samsung HD wide screen television that started making noise last week and this noise got proggressively louder and louder to the point that we cannot watch it now. It sounds like an internal fan is rubbing on a piece of plastic or wire or tape or something because if you turn the tv off, you can hear the noise wind down. The noise is kind of like a clicking or rubbing noise. I was already able to take the back cover off and see that the little black fan is free and clear so I dont think its that. Also I was able to see that same little fan completely stop while the noise went on. Is there another fan in there somewhere.? Does anyone know what this might be ? Thank you

Give me model number (it is on back and also should be on right side of cabinet)

I suspect it is a DLP set with a bad color wheel.

Wheel faces lamps in DLP type sets and bearings in motor fail causing either high pitched whine/fan like sound.

If wheel shatters set will shut down.

There are instructions and videos on You Tube for replacement of the kind of part---do it your self repair.

Look at photo and add comment here with model number.

If this told you something you did not know rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Testimonial: "Thats pretty helpful. However, do you think 100 percent that the color wheel is the issue or is there a possibility it may be somthing else"

    the sound is more like a clicking noise rather than a high pitched whining. Do you think its the a bad color wheel for sure or could it be somthing else. It is the DLP and the model number is hlp4663wx/xaa

    Any fan like noise (you should hear it clearly from back of set) will be the color wheel--the set mentioned is very prone to this trouble--I have probably replaced 50 of them in these sets.

Humming noise


If you are using a dimmer switch to operate the fan instead of a fan speed controller, that is the cause of the humming. If you turn down the speed to the lowest setting and the hum gets louder, then your controller needs to be replaced.

Noise from Samsung rear projection DLP HD TV.


this noise is an indication of a bad color wheel. aa dlp uses a mechanical motor to spin a coloered segment disk. this turn the white light of the lamp into your colors of pictures. Now anything that moves will eventally break. the flickering is also an indication of a color wheel going bad. eventally this will cause the set to shut down. Color wheels can be replaced. i dont know your model so i am not sure of the exact replacement procedure. at my shop we charge average 250 for such a repair

Samsung LE26R73BDX 26INCH - LOSS OF DIGITAL SERVICE


Solution that worked for me:

Beware: Although the process should be safe, it technically voids your warranty.

Enter the service menu:
1 - turn of tv with remote
2 - press and release in the following order on the remote: Info, Menu, Mute. Make sure remote is pointing at the tv
3 - turn on the tv from the remote
4 - you will see the service menu. using the down arrow on the remote select the Reset option. Using the right arrow button at this point will do a hard reset.
5 - Wait a few seconds, turn TV on
6 - you will have to rescan analogue and digital channel but it should be working now.
