Hello weidenmeyer

dust can get on the DMD screen. Remove DMD board and look carefully, with a magnifier, on the little window even a spec of dust can cause weird translucent images (spots) on screen. Take a can of air and blow off the dust particles. Take care when reinstalling and look for correct azimuth/tilt on screen.

Also, check to see is the Digital Micromirror Device is not damaged (mirrors not working), you will need a digital signal analyzer (with static picture) to look at the signal going in to the chip to make sure it is actating the transistor which controls the mirrors, this is a tedious task, if you are using a standard analyzer, so what you could do is use a video signal generator and see if the dots occur, if they do suspect the DMD and either clean it with air or replace it.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

I believe it is the digital projection chip that is beginning to fail. Causing white and black spots to appear. To repair this may cost more than a new tv. If you want to attempt it yourself check out the above link. Hope this helps

My SAMSUNG DLP HLT5675SX TV seems to develop little black spots all over the screen and after a while these black spots become bright white spots. In fact if a non-used Input is selected and the screen is...


It is the chip that controls the millions of mirrors inside the tv. If they are black, they are stuck closed. If they are white, they are stuck open. I JUST had the same the same thing happen with mine. I bought it 3yr and 2 months ago and I had an extended warranty on it for 3 years. Well, needless to say, it was out of warranty and I was pissed. The store I bought it from suggested I call Samsung. Which, I did. They asked for the model number and told me that my model (hlt5675sx) was one of the ones that is covered becasue they had a problem with the chip. Within 2 weeks, my tv was fixed by a repairman who came to my house. It works perfectly, now and it didn't cost me a penny. Good luck.

White spots on TV Screen


<span id="ctl00_ctl00_MainColumn_CenterColumn_ThreadSolutions1_Repeater1_ctl00_lblSolution">DLP/mirror chip is going bad. A common problem on Sammy TVs after 2-3 years. Chip is user replaceable (try samsungparts.com or ebay) for about $150-200. Sammy was (last year) repairing the DLP White Spot problem for free. You MUST talk to ECR (executive customer service) to even think about getting that consideration--forget the standard CS people. Don't know if they are still covering this out of warranty in 2010.</span>

Own a Samsung DLP TV 42 inch and white dots have


The random whit dots you are seeing is more than not the DMD or million little mirrors board. The white spots represent some of the mirrors that are sticking in the on position. In that case they are always reflecting white light from the lamp. I don't concider the DMD board a do it yourself repair since on the older DLP set it requires mechanical alignment as well. The best thing to do is contact a techincian and see what they might charge to repair the TV for you. Please take a few moments to rate my answer...Thanks..

I have white dots appearing on my samsung dlp.


If the white spots are appearing in different spots or "Moving" it is the DMD board beginning to fail. Samsung DLPs seem to have a lot of DMD board failures. I would expect it to completely fail in the next couple months.

If there are only a couple small white spots that never go away it could be a mirror that is seized on the chip, but it's far more likely that the DMD board is going bad.

Mysterious White Spots


Your projection lenses need to be clean including the lamp. Call the service technician in order to fix the problem.
