Buzzing noise from lamp area.

Could this be the color wheel? If so, is it an easy fix to attempt? About how much would the part cost? I replaced the lamp about a year ago. Thanks.

    tv tries to turn on but makes a loud buzz from lamp. I removed the back and can see an electrical arc through the bulb (the source of the noise).

    But i'm not sure if it is a power supply problem or a bulb problem.

    any feedback would be great.

The tv wont turn on and there is a short buzzing noise


If the buzzing noise sounds like a fork in the microwave, it's time for a new lamp. If it sounds like a squealing noise, it's either a fan or the color wheel. Color wheels are not easy to replace, so I recommend hiring a Service Tech.

My samsung 42 inch hdtv is making a buzzing noise


First. The whirring or buzzing sound you hear is the Color Wheel and it needs to be replaced. Second, since I do not know when and if the original lamp has been replaced it is a good idea to replaced the lamp. The bad Color Wheel is the one causing the set to shut down.

I have a Samsung rear projection tv. It has been


The Lamp probably is bad but it going bad would not cause a buzzing sound. I have a hunch that the Color Wheel Motor is bad causing the buzzing noise. It is a major repair and the cost would be expensive. But this is the deal, you will need to get a qualified repair person out to confirm the symptom to be sure. You can go ahead and replace the Lamp to get the set working again and use it for as long as you can stand the buzzing noise. If it is the Color Wheel Motor, I would check prices on replacement sets just to get a feel of how much you are willing to spend for repairs.
I hope this helps,

If you hear a ticking and or buzzing sound as it is trying to start up then most likely the replacement lamp is bad. Take it out and reseat it one more time to see what happens. The noise you hear is the ballast attempting to fire the lamp up.

Loud Buzzing Sound


since you changed the lamp my next thought is that the color wheel has failed,,,most good road techs can replace it in the home..the cost would be between 220.00 and 350,00 depending on the company...
