The white dots indicate a problem with the optical light engine---Parts for this set are very expensive and my suggestion would be NOT to repair it but replace it.

If you want some more information Google the model with "problems" to see what the common issues are fot this set

If you still own this tv, you need to consider changing the DLP operating chip. This part is part of the light engine located in the DMD module. (the silver clad box) you need only a screwdrivers, probably # 10 torx to chage this part. It's available from ShopJimmy @ http://www.shopjimmy.com/samsung-4719-001981-dlp-chip.htm

This will repair the starry night syndrome on a DLP television.

SOURCE: little blue dots on screen and large blue haze in upper left corn

Sounds like the light engine is going bad...that's why they stopped making these rear projection sets using LCD's. Costs almost as much as a new set! But get a second opinion before trashing it.

SOURCE: We have a Sony Wega

Hi,
First of all, 3 times blinking red light indicates that lamp cover is not in place or fixed securely after checking lamp in tv, make sure lamp cover is fixed properly.
Regarding multi-colored lines running vertically across the entire screen problem, it seems problem with light engine (optical block) that generates image to project on front screen of tv, visual check by professional is required to confirm and replacement of light engine.
Lamp is light source in this tv similar to multimedia projector that throws image on wall/ big screen etc.
Light engine is bit costly part that seems need to be replaced to fix multi-colored lines running vertically across the entire screen issue.
Hope these info will help you.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

SOURCE: I have little white dots showing up on my screen

You need a new dlp chip. The tiny Micro mirrors inside of it are getting stuck and there is no way of freeing them. You can either buy a new light engine which is very expensive or buy a new DLP chip and change it yourself. It takes about 30 minutes to do and is very easy. I have the DLP chip for $225 new. Other places will charge you about $345. tharizen@yahoo.com

5 yr old tv goes through cycle and tries to come on, eventually does but after many tries.


My sony did almost the exact same thing. I removed the bulb & cleaned all the dust out of the cooling ducts & the screen on the bulb was full of dust. That bought me about a month, then I replaced the bulb & haven't had a problem since(over a year ago). Just make sure you NEVER touch the glass of the new bulb with your hands,oil on your skin will greatly shorten the bulb life! I found a bulb at a local electronics store for under $200.00... don"t forget to clean dust from cooling ducts,& make sure cooling fan is working, bulb gets extremely hot!

SAMSUNG DLP SLIM 50" AFTER I TURN IT OFF IT WONT TURN BACK ON TILL 30 TO 50 MINS LATER THE THREE LIGHTS IN THE FRONT BLINK. iT ACTS LIKE ITS GONA TURN ON BUT IT DOESNT IT JUST MAKES THE NOISE AND FLASHING...


Chris,

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

I have a 2 year old Sony Bravia KDS 50A3000 rear projection TV. We replaced the bulb about 2 months ago and now all of a sudden the bulb will go off and we loose the picture for 35 seconds, nothing happens...


well if you replace the lamp 2 months ago this could be a ballast issue go to your back of the TV and if you ear a weird mechanical noises like a tick,tick when you are down there this is the ballast.

Tv turns on w/pic then pic dissapears light blinks 4 times


I have the same issue, we've had to change our bulb three times in less than two years. now we have 61" expensive paper weight. Our current bulb is less than 6 months old. The TV is only 2 years old and like i said this is our third bulb.

the blue light blinks 4 times. you get sound. then a few minutes the the picture returns... then it goes out, and the cycle goes on.

A solution to this would be greatly appreciated.

RCA HD52LP: Composite video inputs don't work


RCA Authorized service tech looked at it. He determined that the DM Module need to be replaced. The part alone costs $550 + labor. Since the HDMI and component video inputs seem to work, he suggested buying a VCR DVD combo with HDMI output which would be far less than repairing the tv itself. I'n researching the possibility of purchasing the part myself.
