This might be a noisy color wheel . this is a motorized wheel that produces the color in the set. it could be something else because of your statement of picture is ok. if it the color wheel the set will eventally shut down. this part used to be avalible and fairly easy to replace. it has got harder to locate. The other possibilites includes a small leaky capacitor in the powers supply but that is more like a whine. a tech would have to take the back off and locate the noise.. i believe this unit might have 2 fans and a color wheel. three moving motors.. anything that moves eventally dosnt

Why is my Haier washer making a loud high pitched noise?


No. The high pitched noise did not originate in the control panel but rather in a part of the machine that was chafing or rubbing against something. And now the mechanism is stuck. Check for that first before messing with a control panel.

Visually inspect the fan and the inside of the fan housing. It sounds like it's rubbing against something or is loose and therefore rubbing against something. May be as simple as adjusting and tightening a bolt or removing something that got into the fan housing.

Our refrigerator is making a high pitched ringing/buzzing sound. Any way to fix this? Thanks!


You need to pull the refrig. out from the wall and determine the source of the noise. It maybe comming from the "condensor fan" usually located at the bottom rear. The blade maybe rubbing against something. Eg. paper or shield around the fan. It is also possible that the noise is comming from the inside. In this case, it could be the "evaporator fan" rubbing against something. Good luck ...Jerry

WHEN I TRUN OFF THE TV IT MAKES A NOISE LIKE SOMETHING IS TURNING AND RUBBING SOUND.


2 solutions for problem. ONE color wheel is grinding. IF high pitched sound is heard. Second bad fan or fan contaminated with dust. Turn TV off unplug. LET cool down ... Using canned air clean all vents on rear of set. MAY also need to remove cover and find the 3 fans inside of set.

RCA HD61LPW42 - no picture


I haven't worked on an RCA DLP but have on Samsung DLP, based on your description it sounds like the color wheel is bad. Take the back off and turn on TV make sure its not a fan making the noise ,but most likely its the "wheel" it is inside the light engine probably right next to where the lamp is plugged in. If the whine comes from this area definitely the wheel.
