When you turn the set off does the buzzing stop instantly? If so its the color wheel. If the buzzing continues for a minute or so after turning off the set its the fan. Let me know if you need more information.

61"RCA Scenium modle number d61w136d When turning

You are on the right track, if the lamp is not lighting bright enough it could do this exact thing, the three tries is standard on RCA products, called the 3 strikes and your out---set will try 3 times to make it on and then shut down.

The color wheel while possible usually makes a high pitched fan like sound and with lamp out you should be able to see it to know if missing parts of the wheel or shattered.
