I have a Samsung DLP HLR4667. This thing has worked great for the past 4 years, but last week the bulb finally died. I replaced the bulb and turned the tv back on. The color is great, but after about 10 minutes it started to make a very loud whirring noise. I turned it off and it stopped within a few seconds.
I waited until the evening and turned it on again. I watched for a few minutes and then heard a very low humming. A couple of minutes went by and it became the loud whirring again.
I'm hoping its not the color wheel, but I checked the exhaust fan and nothing is touching it. I was hoping that a wire was getting in the way... Any ideas?? Again the color is perfect, its just this loud noise.

The color wheel could be going bad... it hasn't happened yet, but that's what a bad ball bearing sounds like inside a color wheel. You'll start to notice color anomalies eventually and then the TV will stop turning on.
