Replaced lamp as we had no picture, still no picture, but loud buzzing/humming noise coming from left hand rear side of tv. What's the answer to this one



Its the color wheel in all probability the bearings go on the motor and cause this dreadful noise

Hi there..

Should we replace the two fans as well seeing as we will have the back off and parts out to replace the wheel? Then all possibilities of noise makers are taken care of?


No need

The fans wont make the picture not appear if they fail they cause overheating issues


Usually the color wheel makes this dreadful humming or screeching noise the lamp wont fire up (because of it) and you get 3 blinking lights in the front
