    When you remove Lamp use flash light to look inside and you will be able to see the Color Wheel .Make sure you have paper and Lables to reconnect everything you unplug.You will have to pull chassis out in order to replace the color wheel.PS, Do Not get in a hurry,take your time.always double check everything to make sure you have connected all plugins back up before turning set on.Let me know if you need any more help.

    Use your search bar and Go to Encompas Parts Distribution website,type in your Model# they list parts and Free Service Manual you can print out online Color Wheel PN# BP96-00674A

    I appreciate the follow up. I've never installed a color wheel but I look forward to the challenge. A local TV repair shop wanted $200.00 just to order that same PN#. Told him no thanks and ordered one online. Thank you for the info, Steve

Toshiba 56HM195 56 in HD DLP Loud Buzzing and color distortion

If the sound, sounds more like a Hum with some vibration chances are the Cooling fan located behind the lamp is going bad, about $20 to repair, if its a high pitch hum most likely the Color Wheel and if thats the case about $30.
Good luck, my fan just went bad now seeing green dots everywhere, so debating on just junking it out or fixing it, with winter coming on might just breakdown and buy LCD and say the heck with DLP from now on.
Good luck to you..
