Question about Vivitek V37655 56" DLP TV

3 Answers

I have a vivitek 56" DLP. I have found that I replace the lamp about every 14mon. We do watch it alot. This time I went to turn it on and the buuton did not click like it uually does. And it never comes on. There's a whirring sounds by the lamp, sounds like the balast is trying to turn on the lamp or color wheel but nothing ever happens. No sounds or LED lights. If I unplug the tv and plug back in it will make the clicking soundd to turn on, but nothing else happens.

    Is this something I can buy and replace myself. And if so, how difficult is it from 1 to 10. how much do they cost, where can I buy one and are there installation instructions somewhere?

    Well, I think I've found the answer. The people who are connected to this website Discount-Merchant, a re actually where I live. So I called down there and talked with a guy that went over everything with me. He says it's the color wheel. I'm really glad since it's a $59.95 fix. Thanks for your help.

This is indicative of a failed power supply now within the unit. For it's age that is not all that unusual at all, these (aside from lamps of course) are the most common part to fail. If you are not getting anything to come on then this is most certainly the culprit.

I have a Vivitek RP51HD41-A TV. The TV keeps turning off and on. The color and sound is fine. I have replaced the lamp and this has not fixed the problem.


If its a DLP it may have a color wheel which could be your problem (the colors will change etc)

Color wheels move at high speed and if slow down set will shut down.

The wheel if there will face the lamp. If often if failing will make a high pitched whine or a fan like sound.

One year to the date television stopped working ,,, tv would start blinking and could hear but not see


This happened to me also. I just made the deadline to receive a replacement lamp from Vivitek by 2 days, because of the warranty. If not, I would have had to pay $250. This happened in 2009. My replacement went out in Dec, 2010 and I can't find a replacement anywhere. Order a new lamp, hope this works.

Viviteck 56''in.HDTV DLP TV. replaced with a new lamp bulb since I replaced this the tv wont come on only the sound for about 5 seconds then tv is silent again. any tips, Please.


The first thing to check on any TV that has a replaceable lamp is to make sure the lamp door is back on and seated correctly. You also need to make sure that the lamp is seated all the way in. The lamp door and in most cases the lamps have saftey switches they have to activate for the TV to work normal.

Vivitek 56 inch dlp projection is humming. why and how to fix


In my experience, the humming means your color wheel is going. The bearings inside the wheel are probably giving out.
My Vivitek started humming a couple of months ago and first I replaced the lamp.
Still hummed.
I read in other forums that humming is linked to color wheels and that seemed like where the noise was coming from.
I purchased a new wheel online and replaced it myself...
..no more humming, the picture is great and now I can listen to the movie again...not the tv!
