    Thanks for the help. Unfortunately, when I looked inside via the port you described, the bug is definitely not on the inside either, it has somehow become squashed between the lens'.

It is unlikely the bug got between the inner Fresnel lens and the outer cylindrical disperser lens of this DLP as the separation is minimal and blocked off all around. Much more likely is that is inside the Fresnel lens and may be cleared off with a clean microfiber cloth through a port to be found on each side (guessing) of the set. Try not to add dust. You can also go to avsforum <http://www.avsforum.com/> and search for Samsung HL-P6163 or similar 5-year old. -Ken

    While trying to clean it, gently lay the TV face down on a clear cloth so the bug does no fall on color wheel or bulb.

Most times when i turn on my computer, the screen flashes.


it means your computer has caught the ati2dvag bug. This bug seems to affect ATI video cards.

The 2 most common “solutions” are:
  • Reinstall the ATI driver. You are advised to launch Windows in Safe Mode (press F8 before Windows boots), go to Windows Add/Remove programs and uninstall everything ATI. Remove the DAO/MDAC component as well. You can use the ATI removal tool utility which can be downloaded from the ATI website. The complete set of instructions on removing ATI can be found here on the ATI website.
  • Go to System Devices in My Computer > Properties > Hardware, and locate the option, PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge. This could under other names on your PC, so contact your PC vendor if you’re unsure. Right click, and select the “update driver” option. Manually search and install the PCI standard PCI-to-PCI bridge.

Bug behind plastic screen cover and loose right side movement


Sadly the entire system needs to be taken apart. There is going to be at least 15 screws to remove and you need to move with surgical precision.

Grey spot on screen


It's not the lamp. It maybe dirt or dust or even a bug. The picture that is projected starts out 1/2 inch by 1 inch in size. Somewhere along the path to the screen a piece of dust gets in and after it's projected it looks like a blob on the screen. The closer it is to the DLP chip itself the bigger it looks. If this is the case you should have a professional service it. The Light engine needs to be removed and cleaned.
If you lightly push on the screen does the blob move slightly ? If it does it's not on the screen it's in the optics or the mirror.
You may also have a bug or smug on the main mirror that causes the same thing. This will appear about 2 times the normal size of the object. If your up to removing the screen Take a look closely at the mirror on the back of the set. You can clean this with windex it's glass. If you do take the screen off hold it up to the light. Sometimes spiders make webs and leave marks.
Good Luck
