HL-P5063W vibrating and won't turn on

Last night I was watching my DLP and the colors went all crazy. It's hard to explain exaclty but there was a lot of purple and red. I turned it off to reset it and now it won't turn back on. There is a loud vibrating noice coming from the back and the lamp light flashes, and it wil then shut itself back down and try to power up again. Eventually all three lights on the front power button will start to flash but the screen will not turn on, any ideas?

    Problem is a little different. Set will make loud vibrating noise and picture will flash in and out and looks hazy. We will immediately turn off TV and the vibrating noise gradually stops. It sounds very bad but maybe a quick fix?

Same problem: No onset, symptom or anything just all of a sudden, blank screen, and a loud humming/vibrating sound. Believe it or not I had the protection plan from Circuit City and called them up. Suprisingly they were easy to deal with, set up an appointment and the guy showed up on time! He knew right off the bat that it was the color wheel and it took him 20 minutes to replace it. The wheel itself actually shattered! He explained that the bearings can go bad and the wheel gets loose. Subsequently it wobbled, hitting the housing and shattered (explains the sudden blackout.)

I read somwhere else in this forum that it took someone an hour and a half to replace it. I'm pretty handy but when I opened the back of the TV, my wife gave me "the look" so I called.

For those who care: The guy was courteous, answered all my quests. and even vaccuumed ou the back of the TV. I don't advocate the Protection Plan but I was glad I had it. Cost me $499 in 2004 expiring this November. He explained that it would have cost me out of pocket $218 for them to come plus parts which in this case was another $130. So I guess I lose in the end but if you told me I had to dump $350 into the TV now, I seriously would have considered buying something new (That's just me).

I have Samsung DLP TV 50 inch HL-P5063W

First thing to look at is the color wheel this model uses--usually it will make a high pitched fan like sound but can make a grinding sound also.

If it slows down from the 12,000 or so RPM speed it will cause color issues.

Tv turns off after watching an hour - then proceeds to turn off every 15 to 20 minutes there after

Hi if your tv is a DLP or LCD and you hear clicking or like wanting to turn on ,most likely its an issue with the ballast which is the board that powers the lamp.(Discard if tv is )If you hear buzzing or spinning noises it could be you color wheel.Also check if fans are running ok or if they are dusty, clean them with an air pressure can if they are dirty.It could also be time to replace the lamp.they normally last 6000-8000 hrs if it's a Philips brand if it's na Osram lamp they will last 4000-5000 hrs 1-2 yrs.God bless you!

HL-P5063W vibrating and won't turn on

i have had this happen to me several times in the field, and if it is what i think it is, you are not going to be happy =(

inside of a DLP type TV, there is a device called a 'color wheel'... it is essentially a disc made up of different colored glass that spins really fast. this disc has 3 or 6 (depending on make/model) pieces of colored glass like pieces of a pie affixed (read: glued) to a hub.

what happens sometimes is that one of the pieces of colored glass flys out of the hub, and causes a massive unbalance in the spinning wheel, which causes the hum/vibration, and since the colored glass is missing, the colors will be all messed up.

if this is what happened, then your television will require a new DLP engine.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

Samsung DLP loud vibrating noise

The color wheel is the most common problem in DLPs that cause noise. To determine the cause: Turn the set off. If the noise goes away after about five seconds, then, the problem is the color wheel. If the noise goes away one to two minutes after shut off, then, the problem is a fan. You can find an Authorized Servicer in your area that can tell you the price of repair, by clicking on the Samsung link:
