My Samsung was fixed for "free." Call Samsung service 800 number. When asked why you are calling tell them it is about the white dots problem. The tech said he would help me solve the issue and provide me with repair order from a local Electronics dealer. I was given a work order number by the tech and did receive a call from the local repair organization. My DLP is over 36 months old so I asked if this was a "no charge" fix. He assured me that it is. Low and behold I am 100% satisfied with Samsung and the standing behind the product. The fix is a chip replacement that Samsung is well aware of.

    I have the same problem with my Samsung 67-inch DLP TV. Samsung Cusotmer Service Manager said that the TV model is not experiencing high breakdown so they will not cover the repair cost. It will cost me between $300 to $400 to replace a stupid defective chip. Whar a lousy excuse and poor customer service.

    Wow Don I it sounds alot like what they told me, I was told the same thing about the model I have. The rep told me it wasnt on their list of free repair so I have to pay out of pocket to get it fixed. That happened in Aug last year.

Thanks to Butch351. I first called Bestbuy and they wanted $149 just to come and check the problem. Instead I follwed Butch351 advise and called Samsung directly. The said that they will send someone to repair it for FREE even that my TV is 2 yrs.old.

Hi there lets see.

i will be better for me if you post a picture of your TV problem so i can see better and diagnostic i can't say for sure its the DMD. white spots usually are. Maybe its just the chip,

try this link below they talk about this problem and they have pictures probably you can see similar problem like your TV and fix it..

These white dots are a very conmenissue when the DMD board is starting to go bad (the integrated DMV chip). The DMDcontrols the color wheel and the light engine; it’s in charge of manipulatingthe light engine so it can project a picture on the screen. A test you can try:bring up the TV menu. If the white dots appear in the menu, then that willincrease the probability of a malfunctioning DMD, if not then the digital videoboard will raise suspicion. Now if you decide to buy a new DMD you’ll have tosearch by part number, NOT by model number, the main reason is that two TVs withthe same model number me have none compatible components because they are differentgeneration when they where assembled.
Also if by any chance you can’tfind the DMD sold separately, your next option is to buy the entire lightengine that includes the DMD, and obviously that’s going to be more expensive. Ifyour trying to save lots of money and you really know what your buying try eBay,you can get a really good deal, how ever if you are not familiar with TV parts,and don’t want to take a chance buying something that might not work, tryonline stores that specialize in TV parts (my personal recommendation: Discount-Merchant.com ).

Samsung plasma TV model #pn42b400p3dxza problem with no image. The TV has sound but no image. I've tried using other components on the TV like RCA jacks with a separate TV digital tuner. Thank you


The main power supply regulator section circuit fault. Either it will be a separate board, or the part of main board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time. Even though you can make it right, it will cost around an amount equal to the cost of a new board; including the cost of (spare parts + service charge) More to say, most of the spare parts to it will be difficult to get from open electronic spare part market. This is true to most of the flat panel TV power supply boards; irrespective of its brand and screen size.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
Check whether Va & Vs voltage come to the display panel, from the main power supply regulator board. If not, the SMPS board [power supply regulator board] is faulty.

Samsung TV Displaying Dual Images. It appears as 2 of the same images offset from each other. There are also some lines in the images. Talked to samsung and they wanted to send a tech but I simply can't...


Overlapping video signals are generally adjustments made when turning various pots on the rear circuit board. You may need the service manual to follow the directions on how to reset and stabilize the picture. If you cannot be your own technician; you have no choice or other options.
