Samsung DLP smeared spots on inside of screen

Model #: HL-P5085W (with the pedistal built into the TV)

About a inch in from both sides of the screen I have these spots. Best I can describe them, they look like a clear, oily substance was smeared on the screen from the inside. These spots are see through for the most part and are only visible when the screen displays white or very bright colors.

They have been there from the day I purchased the TV but I honestly let the spots go until I recently got a xbox 360. It seems to get much more noticable when I display movies and games in Hi-Def.

I have a extended service contract with Conn's but they said cleanings aren't covered ($160 service call for cleanings). Samsung said it might be something in the display mechanism but it's out of warranty.

Is it hard to dissassemble the screen on these and clean the inside myself?
Or do I get Conn's service to come check it out then decide?

SOURCE: Bright blue pixels on left side of plasma screen

I have had the same problems with blue pixelation on the left hand side of the screen after 1.5 years of owning the TV. However I took out the extended warranty and had it repaired just yesterday. It was a firmware update that needs to be done on the TV to allow more voltage through the board, and it seems to have worked. Had the TV on all day yesterday and no sign of blue pixelation.
Im sorry to say I cant tell you what firmware version it was upgraded to. Hope this points you in the right direction for the fix though

SOURCE: Numerous white spots on Smasung DLP TV

You will actually get white and black dots , the black ones are tougher to see because of the color in the background , within 2 months youre picture will be fully covered with dots....I went through the Samsung website troubleshooting flow chart , and it led me to a bad Digital Micromiror Device , or DMD board . What is actually the problem is the DMV chip connected to this board . Inside this chip are 3 million tiny mirrors ,and when they physically get stuck , they either show black or white instead of a color . Samsung will not tell me the part number of the chip , they will only offer to send a service tech to my house .

SOURCE: samsung 40 inch lcd mode not supported

My 360 and samsung hdtv worked fine for about a year and now im getting the problems mentioned above, not sure if its a console/cable/telly problem but i did the following (temporary?) fix

Unplug your 360 and plug it into another television set, it seems to reset/calibrate itself somehow and then when you plug it back into your samsung tv it will work - mine did but for how long i dont know.

My SAMSUNG DLP HLT5675SX TV seems to develop little black spots all over the screen and after a while these black spots become bright white spots. In fact if a non-used Input is selected and the screen is...


It is the chip that controls the millions of mirrors inside the tv. If they are black, they are stuck closed. If they are white, they are stuck open. I JUST had the same the same thing happen with mine. I bought it 3yr and 2 months ago and I had an extended warranty on it for 3 years. Well, needless to say, it was out of warranty and I was pissed. The store I bought it from suggested I call Samsung. Which, I did. They asked for the model number and told me that my model (hlt5675sx) was one of the ones that is covered becasue they had a problem with the chip. Within 2 weeks, my tv was fixed by a repairman who came to my house. It works perfectly, now and it didn't cost me a penny. Good luck.

Samsung, DLP TV 50 inches Model # HL-T5075X/XAA


Samsung just told me they wouldn't fix my tv because it was produced in Nov. of '06 and the only ones they would fix were made in August of '06 or earlier. I am way too angry right now to call the service tech number they so very nicely provided.

Yes. This is a good set. Picture is good. But keep in mind that Samsung no longer makes this set and stopped making DLP tv"s. Parts are dwindling.
