Question about Samsung PCL5415R TV

1 Answer

When I turn on TV I would get a clicking sound and a whinning noise. After the whinning noise would stop I could unplug the TV, plug it back in and get a picture and sound. Now all I get is a clicking sound and nothing, no whinning, no picture, no sound.

Hi,

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:

http://www.jangro.com/electronics/samsung-dlp-replace-color-wheel/

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cx4pbNjsxfU&feature=related

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!!

When I turn my dvd player on, the volume will lower on its own to almost mute. It is hit or miss weather or not the unit will turn off on its own saying protect. All connections are good. Inside is clean....


When you've got good volume, try unplugging the speakers (only for a very short time) to see if that whining noise is still there or if it's stopped. We're trying to see if the whining is related to the low volume and "protect" or if it's only coincidental.

Try unplugging all the cables (except the power cord). Turn the player on & off several times & see if that whining noise acts the same. Also see if the player goes into "protect". What we're trying to do here is see if it NEVER goes into "protect" with the cables unplugged.

Last... try to get it to start & run without going into "protect", with all the cables unplugged (except power). Plug the cables in, one at a time, and see if plugging one of the cables in forces it into "protect". If so, there's something wrong with that cable or whatever's on the other end of that cable. Unplug it again & restart the player - no "protect"? Wait a little while, plug the cable in. "Protect"? Check the other end of that cable.

If it goes into "protect" with nothing plugged in except the power, then the player is probably a write-off, ready to be replaced (it's not very often that DVD players are worth repairing these days).

Have a 27 in Rca t.v and it will not turn on. I also tried unplugging it, but still the t.v will not come back on how do i change the fuse


FORGET the fuse for the moment. If you unplug the set and plug it in do you hear a high pitched whinning sound?

This model is prone to the High voltage transformer failing and usually the Horz output transistor at the same time.

You hear a buzz if you unplug it and plug it back in?

My tv turns off by itself and makes a clicking noise


Most likely it has some bad capacitors in the power supply. Flat--panel sets are VERY hard on capacitors, due to the fact that the "rising heat' from the set "cooks" the caps and they fail VERY early.

Our Samsung HL-P4663W DLP is makes noise and shuts off


It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.
