Intermittent whining, screeching noise from Samsung DLP. Replaced lamp not that long ago. Noise was there before and after lamp replacement. Happens most on start-up. Often stops after running for a while.

    I have the same problem. My Samsung DLP makes whining, screeching noise at start up. Seems to lessen over time while the tv is on

    I found it was the color wheel - the bearings in the wheel were going out, causing the noise. Got the color wheel replaced. Cost me ~$350 at a local repair shop.

    It is most likely the color wheel or fan slipping on start up once the unit heats up the sound goes away?

I have a humming noise coming from my 5 year old samsung 50 inch dlp tv , I have replaced the lamp 6 months ago so what else couyld the noise be coming from? I have a great picture and color.


If it is a high pitched whine it is most likely the color wheel; the bearings in the wheel go bad and if you google the model number with color wheel you will find it.

The whine is the early stages of the wheel failing; when it goes out you will either have shutdown or a grinding sound.

Let me know if you have questions as I am here to help.

Whining noise


Color wheel is going or gone out. New colorwheels are air bearing and not mechanical.

My Samsung 50" DLP HDTV keeps humming when the DLP lamp comes on.


Hi, you have one of two problems, either the color wheel is going or one of the cooling fans are going, the color wheels are a very common problem in samsung dlp`s, sorry I can`t nail it to a specific part but I`d bet it`s the color wheel as they are notorious for failing in samsungs, video-tek

Samsung DLP HL-R4266W..no sound or picture. TV is completely dead


Assuming the noise is a high-pitched whine, then yes, it is the color wheel.  If the color wheel goes out, the TV will turn on for a while, then turn off when it can't establish color wheel sync.  The color wheel has to be in sync with the mirrors on the DLP, so if sync can't be established, the TV turns off.
You can order a new color wheel from Sears or partstore.com (among other places) and replace it yourself, if you are so inclined.

DLP TV Samsung HLP4674w No Picture


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.

Samsung dlp


HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?
