Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Motorized sound and picture quality poor and jumpy

When the pwoer is turned on, the TV sounds like a motor is running (perhaps a fan) but it sounds labored. The picture is dark for a few seconds and then it appears but the color is off and the images flicker a bit. My husband thinks it's the color wheel and I'm wondering if it's the lamp and lamp fan. Help!

    my tv started turning on and off after one year (13 mos). I replaced the lamp myself and its rolling along 6 mos now. The fan sounds like it's about to exit the back of the set. can the fan be replaced or is it the unit you all are talking about?

Your husband is correct it is most likely your color wheel very common and it will effect the picture. what will happen soon is your tv will not turn on. The cost is two possiablities. color wheel replacement 225,00 part is 80,00 complete light engine in rear cases cost is 650.00 dollars . I hope this helps

this might be a noisy color wheel . this is a motorized wheel that produces the color in the set. it could be something else because of your statement of picture is ok. if it the color wheel the set will eventally shut down. this part used to be avalible and fairly easy to replace. it has got harder to locate. The other possibilites includes a small leaky capacitor in the powers supply but that is more like a whine. a tech would have to take the back off and locate the noise.. i believe this unit might have 2 fans and a color wheel. three moving motors.. anything that moves eventally dosnt

POOR PICTURE QUALITY


The convergance IC's need to be replaced along with possibly a pico fuse in the same circuit.Theres a large heat sink with two IC's starts with a STK number,replace them and that should take care of it.

Tv sounds like motor running when turned on


It is no doubt the color wheel. Replace it soon or the ballast will also go out.

I have a teac plh4220sd and is about 18 months old. recently the picture quality started to degrade and yesterday completle lost picture but still have sound, is there anything that can be done


Hi I have the same problem and fixed it by running a fan behind the TV I think the Plasma screen runs to hot.
The fan completely fixed the screen if you feel the top of the TV you can see how hot it gets running a fan behind the set keeps it cool.

Low pitched grinding or groaning noise


Dan i recently had one of these in the shop and discovered a problems with blown capicitors in power supply.. however the low pitch groan indicates a fan or what is known as a color wheel. if this motorized part does not reach speed the lamp will not fire. replaceing the color wheel is not an easy task.
