Question about Samsung HLS4676S Television

1 Answer

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.

If the converter goes out does the tv not do anything no screen light uponly red standby light?


if your question is that if cable or sat converter goes off for any reason , will your tv display a black screen , then the answer is yes , without an input most all tv sets will display the opposite of full white , this being full black , also any on screen displays might not work as well (no video to sync too)

I have checked cables and different methods of connecting, but the white and red audio out of my PVR appear to have stopped putting out sound.


Go through the setup of the PVR and check the sound settings. It sounds like it's only producing digital audio, that's why it works with HDMI but you want analog, so set the audio to stereo, or try every setting to see what works!
