Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Loud humming or buzzing when set is in operation

We noted the the buzzing is located in the area of the lamp. As soon as the lamp ignites, the buzzing begins and continues to get louder as time passes.
We changed out the lamp but the errant sound begins with the lighting of the new lamp. We suspect the motor on the color wheel.

    Same thing happens to me and the picture colors change and distort. Can a color wheel be changed by me or do I have to get a technician?

Does the picture gets distorted in any way when you hear the buzzing noise?
I would suggest to check all the cooling fans for proper operation.

On off switch does not work somtimes set goes on and off comes on with sound but no picture un plug it and sometimes it works fine


i,
Well basically Sam sung most common parts that go out are,
LAMP: The generic lamp will go from 3500 to 4500 hours and a Phillips lamp will go for 6000 to 8000 lamp hours,
How It Works The lamp itself typically uses AC current and about 15,000 volts to ignite the lamp's mercury vapor gas. The gases inside the lamp react when electricity charges up the mercury gas creating very bright light. The voltage drops to keep the flow of electricity to the lamp. The lamp works with the ballast to project light into a light engine that separates the colors of the light, then recombines them with an image. The image is then reflected on the back of the TV and then onto the screen. But you need to listen carefully for any strange noise like (CLIKING,HUMMING,BUZZING,WHIRLING SOUNDS) that will help you narrow down whats is wrong with your TV because the BALLAST witch is the board in charge of sending the correct amount of current to your lamp could be weak and will not power up you will hear a clicking or electrical humming Also the color wheel is a common part that goes out on Samsung and that will give you a vibration and a loud whirling sound,you can get more help and real good prices at http://www.discount-merchant.com/?click=52978 good luck and keep us posted

I have owned a Sony Grand Wega for about 3 years now and for the past few months the TV has been making a very loud noise. I thought the noise was the fan but came to find out it was not the fan and was...


Hello,

There is a fan beside the lamp chamber in this TV. There should be 4 fans total, and the one beside the lamp chamber might be making some noise. They are all bearingless fans, so the noise should be relatively low-pitched "whirr" if it is the fan. If the noise is more of a buzzing sound, it could be coming from the lamp driver (ballast) or from the lamp itself. Lamps tend to do strange things toward the end of their life.

If you have never changed the lamp, it is about time. They have a 2.5 -3 year life span with average use.

One thing you can try is to turn the TV on from a cold start, and watch inside the vent areas beside the lamp chamber. If you hear the noise before you see the lamp light up, then it is probably a fan. If it starts as soon as you see the lamp light up, it is the lamp or ballast.

Hope this helps you...

Problem


Sounds like the color wheel or coolin fan both can cause this symptom. If it stops as soon as the set is turned off its probably the color wheel. If it continues for a minute after power is off its most likely the cooling fan.

Toshiba 56HM195 56 in HD DLP Loud Buzzing and color distortion


If the sound, sounds more like a Hum with some vibration chances are the Cooling fan located behind the lamp is going bad, about $20 to repair, if its a high pitch hum most likely the Color Wheel and if thats the case about $30.
Good luck, my fan just went bad now seeing green dots everywhere, so debating on just junking it out or fixing it, with winter coming on might just breakdown and buy LCD and say the heck with DLP from now on.
Good luck to you..

Loud noise


I believe it is the color wheel. The motor might be going bad or it has dirt or dust in it.

I hope this helps
