I have green vertical squiggles lines over whole screen

possibly the DMD chip goes bad, you can try to disassemble your tv, and take out the DMD chip, when carefully inspect its mirror, whether you found any lines or white pots in it.

if it had lines or white pots, you have to replace it.

White vertical lines

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : Have a blessed one!

Samsung HL-S4266W 42 in. TV has a bad DLP module. Specifically, an increasing number of bright white dots are appearing on the screen. What's the part number for a replacement module, and where can I buy...

The part # all depends on which version of the set that you have. Take a gander round the side of your side. Right side, if memory serves. You should see a sticker with 3 lines. One for model #, one for serial and one for version.

On the off chance you don't see one, check around the left side of the screen and take note of the lamp code. Your version will probably be a PB01 or PB02.

Depending on the version, the part # changes. Either way, you're looking at about $200.00 for a DLP chip. That's just the chip mind you, not the DMD PCB that drives it, or the rest of the light engine that helps process that information. I have had, during the course of my career, replaced a DLP chip to address white spots on the screen and found that insufficient voltage from the power supply cause the issue in the first place, or that the light engine itself was a contributing factor.

If you were to replace the light engine itself, you would replace all three components here and guarantee yourself a solid repair. You would hit the LE, the DLP and DMD all at once by doing a light engine. Granted, the cost is substantially more, but it might be easier in the long run to swallow $600.00 for a completed set than to swallow $200.00 for a DLP chip that didn't fix the issue and now can't be returned. Plus, a light engine will literally take you 30 minutes to put in and be done. Maybe even less.

PS - Don't touch the surface of that chip. And when you remove the DMD, pull out the old DLP chip and insert the new're going to have to have help. Someone is going to need to watch the screen while you manipulate the DMD--set on and running--to align it back to the aperture. Have fun.

Part #s: Version PB01 :
Version PB02:

Try to secure parts.
