Whining noise

Post by gerrityj » Tue Apr 07, 2009 6:33 pm

My Sharp 65DR650 has started to whine. The lamp is only 8 months old and the fan appears to run ok. Anyone know what the problem may be?

Gerrityj,
Most likely it's your color wheel. Is it a pretty loud noise? Your color wheel spins around in it's bearings fairly quickly and tends to make a lot of noise when it's going out on you. Please provide more information if you can. Thanks.

It is loudest when I first turn it on. Then it seems to quiet some but still makes the noise in the background. How hard is it to change the color wheel? Where can I purchase one?

Gerrityj,
It's a little tricky to replace the color wheel, but not too bad. You can try discount-merchant.com for a color wheel if not then you'll have to look around.
