Color Wheel. Have this TV also. When the color is distorted that ratchet sound you are hearing is the wheel starting to rub and on the brink of breaking. Mine shattered to tiny bits. The fan would just get loud and would cause tv to shut off repeatedly. It's a bit annoying but make sure to doublecheck the type of "chassis" that your wheel has. Easy to replace as a DIY project.

Re: Model 5063W - loud noise
The picture is pink, that would point more toward the color wheel, and you can see the fan through the vents in the back and you can go from there. It sounds more like the color wheel since you have a picture malfunction.

See attached photo: you have a bad color wheel----it turns at about 12,000 rpm and bearings in the tiny motor go bad.
High pitched or fan like sound is classic symptom.
The wheel is available on the internet and You Tube has video instructions by model number for replacing it---Google the model number for the part number for your set to locate the part and instructions.
This for most people is a do it yourself job---takes like 45 minutes start to finish.
If color wheel slows too much set will shut down as its speed is monitored and the wheel can even shatter causing shutdown of the set.

It's likely your color wheel rather then your fan. I've replaced quite a few of these and the fans are usually good. Get and estimate - I generally charge $250-350 Total
also google your model # and color wheel to investigate further.
The color wheel is the most common problem in DLPs that cause noise.
To determine the cause:
Turn the set off.
If the noise goes away after about five seconds, then, the problem is the color wheel.
If the noise goes away one to two minutes after shut off, then, the problem is a fan.
You can find an Authorized Servicer in your area that can tell you the price of repair, by clicking on the Samsung link:
i constantly hear complaints about fan noise in dlptvs
if you sit in front of your computer you will hear the same noise
even in the next room
there is no solution to the fan noise problem
this product has a huge cage fan and a second and third three inch fans in it.... more than the samsung product
it can be noticeable if the tv is on hard surfaces
ie wood floors ,inthe corner, glass top etc
the vents on the back of the tv allow for proper cooling of the lamp at shutoff so it doesnt shatter the tube
its kinda like annealing glass
its designed to extend the life of the lamp ....
which im sure youve priced
call toshiba and tell them your lamp is bad right now and get a new one for an emergency ( warranty if you can do it )
they are also improved
this product is known to have short bulb life
sometimes the zinging noise you hear is indicative of a bad color wheel in the light engine which would require replacement
( not cheap)
toshiba will not piece out the color wheel assembly individually
