Hello, I'm Shahid and will be happy to assist you. I need additional info of TV symptoms to troubleshoot the problem.
This is not an answer so do not rate it.

- Was the same "whirring" or humming noise coming from TV before the bulb replacement?

- Do you get any solid/ flashing light on TV front when TV switches Off/ refuse to turn On?

Thanks.

The sound started before I replaced the bulb, but after there was no picture or sound. The lights on the front are normal, i.e. a solid green light when tv is on.

The only thing that I can think it might be is a cooling fan of some sort. Otherwise, I am not aware of any moving parts that would make that noise.

I turned it on tonight after replacing the bulb and pressed "Menu" to see what might happen. It did stop the noise for a few seconds and then it started again.

Sorry about delayed reply, I was away from computer.

There is another moving part inside TV calls 'color wheel' and it is located in light engine that projects the image to TV front screen, that noise would be coming from color wheel and this part tends to go out after long time service.

Please click following link to view color wheel image for better idea..
