Question about Projection Televisions
SOURCE: HDTV Rear Projection
The color wheel is the most common problem when it comes to noise from DLP's. To determine if it is a color wheel or fan: Turn on the set. When the noise starts, turn off the set. If the noise goes away within 5 seconds, then the color wheel is bad. If the noise goes away after one to one and a half minutes after the set was shut off, then one of the fans are making the noise.

UUUUggggghhhh I have a 1 year old Toshiba 50" DLP rear projection and it had fan noise. It also had a wierd dark spot on the screen that really wasn't on the screen itself. I was taken to a service center and held captive for 2-3 weeks and returned with a new light engine. I thought great! 3 weeks to a month later and bordering on expiration of warranty it starts to make a low screeching sound like a small motor in need of lubricant. The picture jumps all over and resembles a 256 color PC Monitor. The service center comes and picks it up and holds it captive for another 2.5 weeks and says they cannot duplicate the problem. I had even sent them a quicktime movie of it in action.
They drop it off and an hour goes by and off she goes again. Now the longer I leave it on the worse it gets and shuts itself down and sometimes blinks the "light engine" code. Spoke with Toshiba and they are escalating it and should hear back in 3 days... OMG. Kinda off on a tangent, but they do make strange noises.
Did Toshiba get out of the DLP game???

I had the same problem with a 5065. I purchased and installed a new color wheel and that solved the noise problem. The color wheel has a bearing that gets "dry", and when it fails it does sound like a fan bearing.
