No unusual noises. I had replaced bulb, even though it still worked. Replaced ballast and power supply just hoping to hit the right part. While I was in there I also replaced the fans.
I have read up on that and don't think it can be the problem. There is absolutely no noise coming from it when it turns off. I have even taken the whole back cover off and had my head very close to inner workings to listen to see if I can isolate it. Also it will turn right back on after less than a minute. When TV turns off, the lamp will stay on for a few seconds but screen is black, sound will stay on for another 10 seconds then lights on front will flash. I wait a minute and it will turn back on.
Yes, it does the same thing with either lamp, I now have two good ones. I have swapped them back and forth a couple times. I should note that the TV will run longer with the back cover off and getting more air.
I pulled the color wheel and spun it. I can tell it is bad because it slows rapidly and it make a slight rubbing noise when it is spun. I will order one of them. Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX me figure it out.
