Having problems with your Projection Televisions ?

I have a Samsung hlp5063w dlp tv. 1- loud buzzing noise coming from the left side of the set (looking from the front). When I tap it the noise tends to go away and come back. So I'm thinking it's the cooling fan for the lamp which I just replaced. Would the color wheel act like that when I'm tapping the side of the tv? The picture is beautiful and there are no problems there. 2- If its the cooling fan, how do I replace it?



Answers :

It is much more likely considering all these the wheel fails to be your issue.

The problem is often described as a fan like or high pitched sound which since the motor on the wheel turns at over 12,000 rpm is likely to be the cause.

Hint: most color wheels if you listen from the rear when the set is shut down the whine/fan noise instantly slows down until the wheel stops.

Eventually wheel will seize up and shatter and set will not come on.

I have a 2008 Samsung 61" DLP TV Model #: HL61A750A1F. It is displaying a check fan 3 error on the screen then after a while it turns itself off. I've called in a technician that was adamant that the fan was fine and the lamp needs to be replaced. When he came over to replace the lamp he said that my model doesn't use the regular lamps that it uses a fluorescent lamp and that it can not be repaired outside of Samsung. Is what the tech said true?
