Hi mstadisasta

This is a faulty colourwheel that will have to be replaced as a colourwheel cannot be repaired.

It is quite easy to replace and I would suggest you to do it yourself if this unit is no longer under warranty.
All you'll have to do is get your hands on the new colourwheel from your local or nearest retailer.

Thanks for using Fixya !

Why does my projector make a very loud buzzing sound.


the buzzing sound will be a frequency vibration from the mains power cycles
check for loose connections, transformer mounts, loose bulb or any thing else that can vibrate

Dlp projection, keeps switching to standby, also sometimes will start up and the picture goes blank but the sound remains


The lamp may be out. Projectors need high voltage/wattage lamps. They tend to only last 2000 hours or so, which is about a year or two with normal use.

My projector is making loud buzzing noises that arent normal.. I just ceiling mounted my projector its an InFocus ScreenPlay 4805 and the bulb has 1500 hours on it. The buzz started after it was on for 30...


If this sound you are describing is NOT constant and is intermittent in nature it is certainly not a color wheel problem. This sound is usually caused by failure of the Lamp cooling fan (the large one)'s Mos-Fet driver chip. Located on the bottom of the main board. These surface mount "chips" do fail and it's a fairly common problem however this is usually (but not always) accompanied by the projector shutting itself down after a few minuets or so as the high temp switch trips off. A color wheel common failure presents in two ways, either all the glass color filters fly off (there are six) and the image is monochrome (black and white) or just one or more of the segments has come off and the result is an imbalance of the color wheel which spins VERY fast resulting in a vibration
that is constant and can easily be felt by placing your hand on the projector. And all of these problems are very easy to repair.

Good Luck!

Loud humming after turning on.


I have sort of the same problem...there was a loud snap(kind of electical spark like) then the unit started humming loudly which changes sound as you move the unit around. The picture remains clear and the fan is quiet in shut down mode...still the wheel you think?
