Question about Samsung HLS4676S Television

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV

White spots are just emerging on my 50 inch Samsung DLP TV everyday. It started with one two days ago and now there are almost 30, I gueww in two weeks the sreen would be covered.

Help I too own a 2-year old Samsung HLS4676S DLP TV with same white spot problem as others here described. For 4 weeks now I have been watching about 10-15 spots flicker for a day or two before each becomes permanent. Samsung needs to do the right thing and recall these TVs and preserve their reputation. Until then I too vow never to purchase ANY Samsung branded products.

    I have the same problem with my 2 1/2 yr old 46" set, Started with one white spot a couple weeks ago, now there are over 30. Apparently Samsung DLP sets really ****. There seems to be a lot of problems with this. I cannot afford a big repair bill on such a new set. Samsung needs to make this right for people. I will never purchase or recommend their products to anyone. If thery were a decent manufacturer they would recall these and try to keep customers.

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.

White spots are just emerging on my 46inch


There seems to be an issue with your DMD board, which is the on in charge of the pixelation. What you can do to confirm if it's indeed the DMD board, is the following: GO to the menu on the TV and if the dots show in the menu, it's your DMD board, but if they don't the issue might be with one of your Video Boards.

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV


Mine is having the same problem. It started around Memorial Day and is only getting worse. One white dot is now a dozen. I called Samsung several times and was given the brush off. They clearly know this is a problem and are failing to respond to the problem in hopes that people will deal with it on their own. It does not matter if your warranty is expired. This is a latent product defect. They are still liable and obligated to fix the problem. I have filed a complaint with the better business bureau. If the company does not respond, I'm taking this to small claims court to get reimbursed for any cost to fix my 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 !

White spots on screen and growing every day


If these spots are small, they are likely the visual effect of a failing DLP chip. When some of the tiny mirrored surfaces on the chip stop moving, this is the result. This is not something you can fix yourself. A Samsung authorized service center will charge $400-$500 to replace it for you.

Worked a charm on my 50" Samsung DLP. Read thread carefully as there are 2 different version of the DMD chip you will need to replace. I ended up fixing mine for less than $165!
