That would be covered under warranty, I believe that's caused by a bad light engine. Normally warranty covers most issues except lamp, unless lamp prematurely dies.

I have about five white spots on my screeen tv. what is that from?


That is the first sign of the DLP chip failing ,the number of white dots will increase as time goes on.
The only solution is to have the DLP chip replaced, but it is an expensive part. You can call Samsung at 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

My Samsung 67" has white


I have the same problem on my 42" Samsung. It started as one dot now there are six. The TV repair shop told me they can sometimes fix it by adjsuting the voltages. If not it is the DMD board. I called Samsung on Jan. 6/11. They told me that as of Dec. 31/10 they would no longer repair the sets for free.

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 on the screen of my hsl4266wx/xaa?


If these dots are only seen when the picture is on I would look for the Optical Block to be causing it. Are the dots in the same place each time you turn it on?

Hello auntthumps, I have posted this eariler, it applies here so here goes: As the commercial goes, "It's the mirrors" and that is exactly what it is. The DMD (digital micromirror device) DLP chip that is the problem. The areas that are white are due to stuck or malfunctioning mirrors. This will only get more pronounced as time goes on. The fix is to replace the DLP chip and or module. I would advise that you get a qualified TV technician to do this. I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV


If your Mitsubishi TV has white spots in the picture , you can call Mitsubishi @ 1-800-332-2119 and request a free DLP Chip to fix the problem. They will send the New DLP Chip at no charge to a TV Tech in your area to install it for $200 flat rate. That is about a $250 savings if you had to pay for the chip . Call them with your TV's Model number and serial number and let them know when and where you bought the TV.
It saved me some hard earned money and now my TV is like New !
