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?

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

The fan is mounted on a very poor quality 3 angle mount. The weight of the motor distorts the mount over time so the the fan starts clipping other fittings when spinning. You can turn the mount around so the motor hangs upright again. The latest EBACs are of very poor quality...

You may hear drop outs or poor sound quality in this call. Your Internet connection currently has reliability problems, perhaps due to a weak WiFi signal this massage apear to me when use voice chat...


Probably out of your control, if you have a strong internet connection.
I often get this message chatting to contacts in Asia Pacific in rural areas.
It can make voice calls a bit hit and miss and the script can be a bit jumpy.
Making the setting via 'Proxy' can be succesful in some situations.

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.
