How to install toshiba dlp light chip

This is a part of folk lore, the DLP display "chip" is not available from the company who made this (or for that matter any other brand) and even if it was you would need the $1,000 plus desoldering station to attempt its replacement.

What is your problem? dots? if that is it the answer is either buy a optical light engine or buy a new set.

We are having white dots appearing on our Mitsubishi DLP 65 inch television, approx. 3 years old. It looks like a constellation is appearing. New dot every day.

That means you need to replace the Optical Unit Block/Light Engine.Dmd board has been known to cause this also, but most of the companys replace Dmd and optical unit.

White dots on a DLP mean that some of the tiny mirrors on the DMD board have failed and are stuck in the on posisiton and always reflecting the white light from the lamp. The DMD on this model is not available sepratley so the complete light engine needs to be replaced. The part number for the light engine is 75006693.

White spots on samsung DLP tv

DLP/mirror chip is going bad. A common problem on Sammy TVs after 2-3 years. Chip is user replaceable (try 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.

Samsung HL-S4266W 42 in. TV has a bad DLP module. Specifically, an increasing number of bright white dots are appearing on the screen. What's the part number for a replacement module, and where can I buy...

The part # all depends on which version of the set that you have. Take a gander round the side of your side. Right side, if memory serves. You should see a sticker with 3 lines. One for model #, one for serial and one for version.

On the off chance you don't see one, check around the left side of the screen and take note of the lamp code. Your version will probably be a PB01 or PB02.

Depending on the version, the part # changes. Either way, you're looking at about $200.00 for a DLP chip. That's just the chip mind you, not the DMD PCB that drives it, or the rest of the light engine that helps process that information. I have had, during the course of my career, replaced a DLP chip to address white spots on the screen and found that insufficient voltage from the power supply cause the issue in the first place, or that the light engine itself was a contributing factor.

If you were to replace the light engine itself, you would replace all three components here and guarantee yourself a solid repair. You would hit the LE, the DLP and DMD all at once by doing a light engine. Granted, the cost is substantially more, but it might be easier in the long run to swallow $600.00 for a completed set than to swallow $200.00 for a DLP chip that didn't fix the issue and now can't be returned. Plus, a light engine will literally take you 30 minutes to put in and be done. Maybe even less.

PS - Don't touch the surface of that chip. And when you remove the DMD, pull out the old DLP chip and insert the new're going to have to have help. Someone is going to need to watch the screen while you manipulate the DMD--set on and running--to align it back to the aperture. Have fun.

Part #s: Version PB01 :
Version PB02:

Spots on screen

Spots on screen do not automatically mean you need to replace the light engine. It depends on the brand. Panasonics can reset the eeprom. Samsung can replace the DLP chip. Hitachi needs a light engine replaced.
