First off make sure that the screen is professionally installed, and second try not to play any console games on your new screen!!!! By playing games on DLP and Plasma screens the resolution from the game is so strong that after time the backdrop of a game will be permentally burned into you screen!!! So try as hard as you can to not play games on the screen.

    I have been playing video games on my DLP TV daily for 5 years. I have never once had any image burned into the screen. Even after leaving my games paused for hours.

Can I diagonally adjust (clockwise/counterclockwise) my Mitsubishi DLP TV? The picture is off center

You need to align the optics mechanically. If you changed the dlp chip and its not centered then the chip is not shimmed properly or the reflection mirror behind the lens needs adjustment. You should get a service manual for that chassis and follow the directions. there may be an electronic method but I am not aware of one.

I do I fix white dots on screen

Have you tuned the channel frequency tuner? Use the remote to bring up setup menu on TV, scan channel frequencies & save. If it's an old TV that can't pick up digital signals, then you need to get a digital set top box & tune to TV.

When turned on there is nothing on the screen but sound works


It sounds like you have a bad lamp and should replace it. Generally sets will not power on if the lamp is bad but if you have not replaced the lamp and the set is more than 3 years old it would not hurt to replace it anyway. I have a tip at which will help with the replacement as well as where to get the parts at the best price.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

White dots all over the screen

call samsung. there are aware of this issue with several of their dlp sets. To avoid a class action lawsuit, they've extended the warranty of several models to cover the very issue. give samsung a call and see if you model is covered. i just got my 46" repaired at no cost and without a warranty.

The more i use my samsung flat screen tv the more white spots come on the screen. What do you think is the problem?

The DLP chip needs to be replaced. Samsung is aware of this problem and will probably cover the cost of part and labor. call 1-800-samsung for nearest service center. I replaced the chip on a 3 year old machine yesterday and Samsung covered all costs.

Have little white dot's on screen will changing

Highly unlikely the bulb could be at fault; it sounds a lot like a defective DLP chip. If you are not aware of how this device functions, it is an array of physical mirrors which can fail individually and cause the effect you are having. The bulb failing would cause a loss of the entire screen, not just a few points.

Samsung HLS5086W - spider crack on outer screen

The outer screen is called a Lenticular screen, it may come as a set with the Fresnel (the inner, and the way I would actually go) the screen is very hard to replace usually on a DLP as they have a somewhat sealed upper side and alot of screws.
