Question about Samsung Projection Televisions

4 Answers

I bought a Samsung LNT5265FX\xac in April of 2008 ad it worked well until about January 2009. At that time dead or frozen pixels began to appear near the center of the screen. It has now reached about the size of a credit card. I contacted Samsung by phone in February 2009 and after dealing with a rude, impatient person from Samsung he basically told me that "dead pixels happen" and that I would just have to live with it as Samsung would not look at it, repair it or replace it! This was very upsetting as I had switched to Samsung from Sony and expected the same good service. A repair man from ConnectPro came out to install a Home Theatre unit( Samsung as well)and he told me to contact Samsung immediately as it was the worst set of dead pixels that he had ever seen ( approximately 50-60 dead pixels)and felt that the unit should be repaired or replaced. The model number is LNT5265FX\xac and the Serial Number is AJBW3CFPC00943J and the version is SS02. I bought the set from the local Future Shop in Chatham, Ontario My name is Jim Gilbert 508 King Street West Chatham Ontario Canada N7M 1G9. Phone number is 519-360-2058 and my e-mail is jgilbert@ciaccess.com. After I bought this Samsung I have heard some frightening stories about Samsung's reputation for customer service. I sure hope that these stories are incorrect.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

A few dead pixels is to be expected but not the number/size you have described. Since to my understanding, the warranty would not have expired yet, it would be to your advantage to seek replacement or repair by any of their authorized Service Centers. This is because dead pixels would require screen replacement which is either expensive or hard to procure.

At this point, may I suggest that all your communications/complains with Samsung be documented and not through voice/telephone. Perhaps a registered mail rather than an email would be better. Additionally, it would help if you provide proof of purchase with date indicated attached to your initial letter.

Any attempt to repair the unit would void your warranty.

Pls post back. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

I have dots slowly starting to appear on my wd-73735. I bought the tv in February 2009 and the light engine had to be replaced once in September of last year. now what do I do?


These dots are called pixels and if they are a certain color, they are stuck. If they are black, they are dead. You can't do anything about to fix the dots neither the service without the replacement of the display (screen)

Hi , 2 weeks ago i noticed some dead pixels showing up on my screen (white dots) since then i'm up to 10 dead pixels. What can i do? I heard it might be the dlp projector that has to be replaced...


White pixels are STUCK pixels, not dead. Read the warranty beacuse at a certain number of stuck/dead pixels, the tv is repaired for free by the seller if is in warranty period.

Samsung DLP white spots


Are the spots fixed or do they move with the image? Verify that all venting is clean of dust. If the spots are fixed and upon close examination are a square shape, The device is overheating of failing. If the spots are moving with image it's a front end problem, and can be overheating as well.

Hi, Yes! the convergance board can stop the unit from coming On. No need to change the board, just change the ICs. This is what it looks like,you will have to remove the board from the unit take note of the wires before removing them, -794a500.jpg
