Keep in mind that your television has a color wheel which if failing won't allow for the lamp to ignite. Basically the ballast never gets the signal to send the voltage to ignite the lamp. The color wheel came to mind when you mentioned a loud fan bearing noise. A lot of times people assume it's a fan when in reality it's the color wheel which will eventually need to be replaced . It's a consumable part and will only last so long. I would check the color wheel they will definitely make a loud bearing noise this is usually always a sign that it needs to be replaced. Please advise if the color wheel can be ruled as the culprit but from what you describe I believe there is a god chance for that being the problem.
I believe what your talking about is the window where the light shines thorough the wheel. I could be mistaken but if you can provide images that would be helpful. If you ordered the wheel with the housing I believe you don't have anything to worry about. Still keep me updated but I believe with the new wheel you will be fine.
Yes that makes sense. The plastic rectangular item the color wheel was rubbing on as you have stated would be the light bar that passes through the color wheel palet. Yes that makes sence. Thanks again. Great information. Onward and upward. peace out!
Ok recieved my color wheel and installed it and YYYAAAHHHOOOOOOOOO the picture came on. you were correct it was my color wheel. I just have what would seems to be a small issue. I have a shadow at the top of the picture. On the right top of the screen it is smaller then gets larger on the left side of picture only on the top half of the picture. The trailing edge of the shadow has a very light rainbow. I did not see an ajustment for the color wheel. It went together like clock work. Just that see though shadow at the top if the picture. Any thoughts or past experiences. Thanks for the professional help you have so kind to help me it has helped me to get this beast up and running!
It sounds like your light tunnel could be needing adjustment. Please check out the link I am providing. It's a YouTube video which shows how to make this adjustment. I believe this should help. Please let me know how it turns out.
