Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
Purchased tv January 2006. Our first problem was that the tv shut down with all 3 indicator lights showing green. Referred to manual, which said the bulb needed to be replaced. Bulb was definately burnt out. Replaced bulb April 2008, then a few months later the tv starting making a very loud whinning noise eventually shutting tv off. Checked bulb seems OK. Reset TV, turned on and still a whinning noise, but evetually a good picture came on again only to shut down 10-20 minutes later with same whinning noise. After turning it on and off several times it never came back on. Checked bulb again, it seems fine. I called repair shop who said they are hearing about alot of Samsung problems lately. Repair tech seems to think it is a color wheel issue. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. THX - Bill
It is the color wheel, inside the light engine. The bearings get dirty and makes it harder for the wheel to spin causing that whin.

Flents, can the color wheel be cleaned or does it have to be replaced once it starts whinning?
