Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

I have the same problem. I am up to 6 spots in one week. I called samsung and they were useless. The cost of repair is over $900.00. I told the rep. that many people are having the same problem. He answered that I couldn't believe everything I read on the net. Please everyone with this problem, call Samsung. I am sure they know it is a major flaw in their TVs but they refuse to take action.

Same problem for me ... check out this thread on AVSforums about it.

I have the same exact tv as you and had the same problem. I took it to a repair shop who told me I needed a new DMD chip and that it would be 850 to fix. I used the information in thread above to get the part number and bought the chip on ebay for under 200. Here is a link to the listing CHIP

People have had good success. I will be replacing mine tomorrow.

**UPDATE**I received the part last Wednesday and it took me about 45 minutes on Saturday to fix it. No more spots and the tv is working fine so far.

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.

Samsung lnt4065f lcd tv clicks along time before turning on


I also had the same problem. Called the local Samsung authorized repair center and was told my TV was not in the serial number range of those out-of-warranty units that the company was going to repair. I called the same 1 800 726-7864 and they said they had extended the out-of-warranty on TVs they will repair if the problem is related to the capacitors. I just called and they have given me an in-home repair authorization and the local repair center has ordered the parts and will be out next week to fix the TV...Kudos to Samsung. I have 3 of their TVs, a cell phone and 2 blluRay DVD players. This is the reason I bougjht Samsung, their reputation for standing behind their product. Hdh Shardale Acres Tallahassee FL

Viore 52' TV randomly shuts off. front lights blink then stop.


I am having the same problem with my PRT50V24D shutting off and blinking lights. After going to viore.com and calling the number listed, I got recording to call another number. When got rep on line I was told it is made by Samsung, Called their tech support and was told that sounds like power problem or bulb getting ready to go. Also if outside of warranty will have to call repair man to see what's wrong. I will have a repair man out next week and will post his results here. Most likely it's the same issue. This is the tech support number for Samsung 1-888-697-2247. Good Luck man. Matt

At this stage, call AT&T is probably the best bet. Call back until you get a more knowledgable technical support rep.

Hitachi 50v710 Yellow spot


I found out that Hitachi has a class action law suit against them for the light engine problem. I called them and asked what they were going to do for my tv which is out of warrenty. The reply was that they would pay for new light engine. I said what about labor. No they would not pay for labor. I asked to speak to supervisor. I was told by supervisor that the tv had to be inspected by certified repair person. Cost for this was $125 but would be applied towards the total labor cost. Repair guy came to house walked in and said he did not even have to turn tv on to know the problem. We called Hitachi to set up shipment of part. Hitachi told me at that point that they would cover all labor costs also. Part has been installed this week and tv is like brand new set.

Good Day;

It sounds like the DLP may have a bad light engine (optical block), if so call the factory's customer service rep and ask for a concession, it is a very costly repair and they will normally cover. Call a factory authorized service dealer to confirm your concern.

Good Luck, big irish.

Spots spots spots!!!! Everywhere


It sounds like it could be either an issue with the video processing in the unit or an issue with the light engine in the unit.
