Does your TV make a “whining, whirling, clicking, or humming
noise?” If you have the infamous blinking lights problem and you’ve
replaced your lamp without success, it’s most likely a problem with
your color wheel.
The Samsung color wheels spin anywhere from 6,000 to
15,000 revolutions per minute (RPMs)–It is one of the few consumable
parts in your Samsung TV. The average life expectancy from our
datalogging shows the Samsung color wheels are fairly reliable with a
MEAN average of 5-8 years, compared to the trouble prone RCA
color wheels which on average last only 3-5 years!
The following pictures are from Samsung’s latest color wheel,
utilitized in the HLS and select-available HLT Series DLPs. The
following TV’s are known to be compatible with it. If you’re color
wheel looks the same, let us know and we’ll update this list!
