Re: Can't pinpoint sound coming from HL-S5686W

hi,
it could be that the color wheel bearing is starting to grind, i suggest you remove the back cover and turn the TV on, and try to pinpoint the source of the sound
if its coming from just beyond the lamp, i would say its a color wheel issue!

Re: Feedback Appreciated on the following symptoms.

ok the issue may depend on the type of buzzing sound that you get!

if it sounds more like a mechanical screeching sound you may have an issue with the color wheel in your tv

if you more like an electrical surge sound you might have a problem with the Ballast (the board that powers the lamp)

Re: HLT5076SX/XAA making a buzzing sound when powered.

some times the lamps explode and the electrodes are close enough that they arch, like a tazer and that causes a buzzing sound!
