The DLP chip is failing and will have to be replaced. Samsung is covering the cost of repair for this problem on SOME models. You can call 1-800-samsung to find out if your unit is covered or to find the nearest service center.
<span id="ctl00_ctl00_MainColumn_CenterColumn_ThreadSolutions1_Repeater1_ctl00_lblSolution">DLP/mirror chip is going bad. A common problem on Sammy TVs after 2-3 years. Chip is user replaceable (try samsungparts.com or ebay) for about $150-200. Sammy was (last year) repairing the DLP White Spot problem for free. You MUST talk to ECR (executive customer service) to even think about getting that consideration--forget the standard CS people. Don't know if they are still covering this out of warranty in 2010.</span>
Bad news, The Light engine has gone bad.The cost of the light engine is usually over $800.
Do Not Repair. Cut your loses. Always buy an extended warranty on any new electronic gadget, especially a TV. It will pay for itself.
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 !
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.
