I have a Samsung DLP TV. The TV is probably about 7-8 years old. I had to replace the BP96-00608A BP9600608A PHILIPS LAMP BULB FOR SAMSUNG about 15 months ago. For the past several months there has been a loud buzzing when turning the TV on, which would last for about 10 minutes and would then stop. Over the last month or so, the buzzing does not stop. When the TV is turned off, the buzzing continues for about six or seven seconds. Can you tell me what might be wrong with my TV. Do I need to replace the bulb again? Thanks.
Hello WelcomeThanks for the QuestionI will need the model number please found on the back of the set?Anthony
HiThis will be the color wheel and assembly causing the noise, its bearings go bad and make this noise, eventually the color wheel will seize and the set will shut down to 3 blinking lights in the frontYou can get a new color wheel for this set at www.partstore.comHere is a video to show you how to replace the color wheel should you want to do this yourselfhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cx4pbNjsxfUA tech would charge about $350 to replace the color wheel, you can find an approved tech in your area by using this link www.tvrepairpros.com Let me know if you need more infoPlease press the "continue conversation" or "reply to expert" button if you dont wish to rate me yet and require more infoPlease remember if you select "bad service smiley" or "poor service smiley"this will be a negative against my ratings and I wont receive a credit for helping you today instead of doing that please press the "continue conversation" or "reply to expert" and I will endeavour to help moreThe thread will still be open even if you do rate the answer nowMany ThanksAnthony
Thanks for your answer. Three follow-up questions:
1. Is this something that a reasonably handy person can do himself?
2. The YouTube video ends with the optic module being taken out from the TV set, but ends there. Is the replacement of the color wheel self-evident or is there another video clip that's needed to do this?he correct part number for this assembly (and does the chassis number matter)?
3. Is BP96-00674A
HelloYes this is something a practical person can do many have and succeededYou continue to number 2 on the videos?it will be in the colomn on the rightYour better off getting the old color wheel out first and getting the partnumber off it as sometimes their are variants of the wheel that wont work, its a bit of hassle as it means waiting for the new color wheel to arrive whils t you have the set disassembled however I have known others to end up with the wrong color wheel assemblyAnthony
