Question about GE 46GW947 46" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV Turned off, now there is a clicking noise when plugged in.

The other night I was watching TV, and it turned off randomly. Now, whenever we plug it in, the tv just makes a clicking noise like a fan slowing down or something. Any help would be appreciated.

Had a 51" GE rear projection donated to myself. While off and power button pressed there was a clicking noise from the front of the unit. Rear cover was removed and it could be observed that the hv splitter had a crack in the casing and the power was arcing out of the splitter. I purchased a $72 dollar hv splitter, i read that the $20-$30 dollar one would break within a year, and the unit powered up no problems.

Samsung dlp tv HLP5663W makes loud noise


Yes, the set uses a color wheel and the lamp faces it.

The wheel turns at over 8,000 rpm and is well known for this problem=bearings in the tiny motor go bad.

The high pitched or fan like noise (classic description) is this part.

Sooner or later the wheel (plastic colored segments) will shatter and set will shut down lamp and not operate---set monitors the speed of the wheel so if it slows down or stops it knows.

The part is readily available on the internet (Google the model number with "color wheel").

This can be a do it yourself repair and You Tube has video instructions for replacing the wheel by model number.

There are two common pitfalls to avoid which the instructions that come with the replacement part usually do not mention---if you decide to do this repair let me know and I will explain.

Whenever i watch tv mybe for 1hr i can hear that there is sound behind its very disturbing..is true that there a 2yr unlimited warranty for it???my tv is not even a year..thanks


most likely the sound you are hearing is the intercooling fan blowing out warm air from inside the TV. When the fan gets covered in dust/dirt it tends to make more noise. Usually a buzzing and/or light grinding noise.

The best thing to do would be to open the TV from behind and clean the fan. You can buy some compressed air at most office, tech, and supermarkets. Just get as much of the junk off as you can and you should hear a remarkable difference.

hope this helps!

Sony KDF-E50A10 50 in. HDTV LCD Television has a ringing sound like a cellular phone whenever the TV is turned on. I have isolated it to near the projector. I have taken out the projector and it still...


There are more than 1 fan in the set; however, the last one to turn off is the lamp fan. The lamp fan keeps your lamp cool and helps extend the life of your projection bulb.

You could either replace the fan, or remove the fan from the set and give it a good cleaning (that's all it might need). However, be aware, fans that go bad in these sets will start to shut down your tv and decrease the life of your lamp. Be on the lookout for intermittent or sudden shutdowns, as those can definitely indicate a bad fan.

Loud whirring. Not the fan.


The fan noise is normal on this set. The lamps are cooled via this method. Your users manual explains this issue..and it is the fan as you can see it slows down after the tv is switched off..

TV went out


Hey Jim, The high voltage protection circuit has gone out on the D-board and will need to be replaced. The fuse to the power supply is probably fine. A good repair tech shouldn't charge over $125 for this and it only takes a couple of hours. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.
