Loud humming sound!

Post by hippiecargo » Tue Dec 07, 2010 10:56 pm

Unit is a Magnavox 50ML8150D/17. Manufactured Feb '06.

Got this from a friend and was hoping for some help/advice...

When I turn it on, I get a loud humming sound. I've cleaned as much dust as possible from the vents and both fans.
The fans do spin with power on.

I get picture on screen, but not sure it's at its best either. He replaced the bulb in Oct '09.

Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

After more investigation and disassembly, color wheel has gone south and is too costly to replace.

Other parts available! :lol:
