Question about Samsung PCL5415R TV
The whining noise you are hearing is very likely caused by the color wheel motor, and not a fan. Usually a bad fan will make a fluttering, low pitched sound; but the color wheel spins much faster, so it will make a higher pitched sound when it starts to go bad.
If you wish to change this yourself, very good instructions (and a video) can be found at these two links:
The instructions are not necessarily exact to your model, but it is basically just screws and a few connectors.
If you wish to have a technician replace this, the labor should be in the $150-200 if you were to take it to a shop. Please add a trip charge if done in the home.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
