Question about Toshiba 56HM195 56" Projection HDTV

4 Answers

FAN NOISE? It seems to be a loud fan noise, but not sure. The sound volume was set on "mute" (no sound) and the noise is still heard. When we "unplug" the TV on and off a couple of times, the buzzing noise disappears. Cannot hear it! Do you think the fan needs to be replaced? If so, is it easy to do?

    When the TV is "off", we don't hear the fan running.

    Unfortunately, no warranty.

    It's 2 1/2 years old.

    We unplug the TV 2-3 times waiting a few minutes each time. It's a pain doing it, but it works.

    It works great all night, with NO fan noise.

    You have a point.

    I am not sure if it is the color wheel or fan noise.

    Unplugging the TV 2-3 times seems to work

    I am very reluctant to fix the problem myself.

Apparently the ballast fan is a fairly common failure part. You should be able to replace it yourself. It is part number 23587527 at a cost of $36.95 and can be obtained from tritronicsinc.com

Good luck.

If the set is working many years perhaps fan shaft sleeves are worn. In this case i think it is better to replace it instead to attempt fixing it.It can continue operate without problem except the produced noise.

There is a possibility that this noise could be what is called a color wheel. a color wheel is much mor difficutl to replace than a fan does it have a whinning noise when yo9u turn it on

Sounds like the unit is running hot, making the fan run constantly....there is most likely something else involved..you have a warranty on this unit?

    well..it's cooler at night, no doubt, so I'm not surprised it's better then. You do have a potential issue here with some part of your internal workings starting to fail, and running hot, hence the fan issue.

    Do you feel inclined to try to do this one yourself, or are you in the market for a repair person(check the repair listings here at Fixya).

2 solutions for problem. ONE color wheel is grinding. IF high pitched sound is heard. Second bad fan or fan contaminated with dust. Turn TV off unplug. LET cool down ... Using canned air clean all vents on rear of set. MAY also need to remove cover and find the 3 fans inside of set.

Excessive Fan Noise


If I may - - the Grand Wega has a common color wheel problem and it may not be the fan at all... If while you are powered up listen carefully to the noise as you hit the power button - does the noise go away or is it still there? If rough noise stops and you can still here something in there running at a whisper then your problem is a bad color wheel not a fan... If it doesn't stop and it is the fan you'll most likely need to replace it.. Like Lemmor said you may need to clean your air intakes, which you can do with the hose on your vacuum but that is a brushless fan and no oil change in the world will help it..

Toshiba DLP fan noise (52hmx95)


i constantly hear complaints about fan noise in dlptvs if you sit in front of your computer you will hear the same noise even in the next room there is no solution to the fan noise problem this product has a huge cage fan and a second and third three inch fans in it.... more than the samsung product it can be noticeable if the tv is on hard surfaces ie wood floors ,inthe corner, glass top etc the vents on the back of the tv allow for proper cooling of the lamp at shutoff so it doesnt shatter the tube its kinda like annealing glass its designed to extend the life of the lamp .... which im sure youve priced call toshiba and tell them your lamp is bad right now and get a new one for an emergency ( warranty if you can do it ) they are also improved this product is known to have short bulb life sometimes the zinging noise you hear is indicative of a bad color wheel in the light engine which would require replacement ( not cheap) toshiba will not piece out the color wheel assembly individually
