Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Mysterious White Spots

46" DLP Samsung purchased Nov 2007, suddenly - with no direct cause, (the tv hasn't been relocated since purchase) I am having white specs/spots appear on the screen. Very frusterating, especially after investing the money I did. I have a warrenty on it, hopefully that'll solve this...micro-mirror/imaging situation. I'll keep the forum posted.

Your projection lenses need to be clean including the lamp. Call the service technician in order to fix the problem.

The DMD chip is failing. The little mirrors on it are sticking in the on position therefore always reflecting the white light from the lamp. The part number you will need is 4719-001981 and is available from the Samsung parts website. I have included a link to directly purchase the part from them. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

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.

Samsung dlp tv hl-s4266w has white spots on it? How much to fix?


Are they spots or dots? If they are spots then the optics are contaminates. If they are dots either white or black then you have a bad DMD chip. The cost of repair depends on who you hire to repair the set or if you do it yourself it depands who you purcahse the part from.

Mirrors going bad. White and black spots are apperaing on my screen. More each day. It is my understanding that tiny mirrors are not turning off or on. Purchased DLP 46'' Samsung January 2007


Well here's the scoop. White spots mean that the mirrors are stuck "on" reflecting light. Black spots mean that other mirrors are not actuating and are not reflecting light. In any case the DMD bs or the DMD chip needs to be replaced by a trained Samsung tech only.
The DMD bd controls the DMD chip.

Actually I need you to do this... while the tv is on, go to the service menu, if the menu also has those twinkleish spots.. it's most probable to be your dmd board, if not, it's probable to be your digital video board

Are the spots fixed or do they move with the image? Verify that all venting is clean of dust. If the spots are fixed and upon close examination are a square shape, The device is overheating of failing. If the spots are moving with image it's a front end problem, and can be overheating as well.

Samsung DLP with white spots


Hello rockel, As the commercial goes, "It's the mirrors" and that is exactly what it is. The DMD (digital micromirror device) DLP chip that is the problem. The areas that are white are due to stuck or malfunctioning mirrors. This will only get more pronounced as time goes on. The fix is to replace the DLP chip and or module. I would advise that you get a qualified TV technician to do this. I hope this helps Thank you, Shuttle83 http://www.electron-age-technologies-llc.com

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.
