Hi I am vortash weird noise would you say it was a fan or that type of sound it could be your colour wheel . the spots may be particles of debris from the wheel being amplified by the light and the lens .. without looking it.s hard to say .. if the sound is coming from the rear it may be electrical arcing from the lamp ballast or a warped fan blade .. you may have a faulty relay and that is clicking repeatedly .. as I say without looking it is difficult . If You have electrical Knowledge .. and are safety trained you may be able to find the fault yourself.. but it is doubtful that you could repair it as most of the components in a DLP TV are surface mounted on the circuit board and you need specialist equipment to service and solder them .. about the only thing you could do would be block replacement of a circuit and that may prove expensive if it was not that one that caused the fault in the first place . With these units about the only user serviceable component is the Lamp .do not try to measure the voltage at the lamp socket voltages here are in excess of 12,0000 volts on initial spark up . if you don't have a manual for this set I found one on this site http://www.safemanuals.com it is listed as the HL-S5686 same model different case but your model is listed in the manual .. if your going to try and repair it you can find a manual here but it is $19.50 and you may be able to find one to download off Bit torrent free http://www.eserviceinfo.com I hope this helps good luck .. Regards Vortash

It is strongly advised that unqualified personnel do not attempt to repair High Voltage equipment but leave it to qualified engineers ..

White dots appearing on Samsung TV screen and multipling each day


It seems you might have an issue with the dmd board. Go to the menu, and if the dots still show on the menu, the issue definitely is with the dmd board but if they don't come up on the menu, the issue will be with the video board.

I have white dots appearing on my samsung dlp.


If the white spots are appearing in different spots or "Moving" it is the DMD board beginning to fail. Samsung DLPs seem to have a lot of DMD board failures. I would expect it to completely fail in the next couple months.

If there are only a couple small white spots that never go away it could be a mirror that is seized on the chip, but it's far more likely that the DMD board is going bad.

Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP 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 !
