Question about Toshiba 52HM95 52" HDTV Projection Television

2 Answers

Another color wheel goes bad

I am looking for a source to replace the CW only on this model. It screamed so loud that I couldn't turn up the volume enough to cover it up. My service tech says that Toshiba said he has to replace the whole optical engine, which we both disagree with. Any ideas where I can get the color wheel only? Otherwise, the tech says the repair will be over $900.

    I found a place called TriState Module (.com) that will rebuild the entire unit for $199. I guess that's what I'll do, and then sell the darn TV when I get it back. Never again, TOSHIBA! I guess that Toshiba stands for Televisions Only Stay Healthy In Brochure Ads.

Our color wheel has gone bad twice in two years and the tech had to replace the entire engine. Luckily we bought the service contract and haven't had to pay for any of the many repairs to this t.v.

Samsung HLR5064W DLP TV, lamp timer light flashing, but there is a loud vibration noise like a fan blade hitting something at the back of the set. I replaced the lamp a couple of years ago, and I think...


Sounds like a bad color wheel----remove lamp---the wheel faces it--look for missing pieces or the wheel shattered---these are known for the wheel making a loud high pitched sound or even a grinding sound if the wheel shatters.

if wheel bad You Tube has video instructions for replacing it---seen several people able to do this themselves in about a hour. Google the model number to ("color wheel") to locate a replacement on the internet.

Samsung DLP HLR5667wx/xaa. All sudden loud noise non stop


This sounds like you may have a bad color wheel. If you want to change this yourself you need to be aware that even with the tv unplugged there are still dangerous voltages in the set.
Changing the color wheel is an involved repair the wheel it's self is very fragile to handle, they can be purchased on line from many sources.

The cost from a service center would be a normal service charge plus about $150.00 for a color wheel. If you have a service center come out to your house explain your problem clearly and they will know they need to bring a color wheel, it will prevent the tech from having to make a second visit.

I have a samsung HL R5067W DLP TV. the fan makes loud noise and runs eradically (spins up and spins down) any suggestions? Is fan bad?


Hi, have you removed rear covers and verified it`s one of the fans ? Those sets are notorious for loud color wheels, we have replaced 2-3 fans but we`ve replaced 50 color wheels, light engine has to be pulled to replace cw so call and get an estimate first so you can verify which has failed but my moneys on the color wheel, good luck, video-tek

Loud Humming Noise


Samsung is notorious for having the motor on the color wheel burn out. If the color on the tv starts to fade or shift tones when the rev'ing or noise is happening then you'll know its the color wheel. There are only two moving parts in this set, the color wheel and the fans. If you're smelling something, it could be either. Take the back off the set and put a piece of tape on the lamp door switch and turn the set on. Try to pinpoint the source of the noise. If its a fan, no big deal, Radio shack should have a replacement. If it sounds like its comming from under the set, dig a little deeper and try unhooking the color wheel motor, not as easy as I am making it sound but either way the fan is about $20 to fix and the color wheel is about $100. Sure beats a $400 tech bill. If you get stuck, comment back and I'll send pictures of the dismantle.
