Question about Samsung HL-R5078W 50" HDTV
After tripping and falling against the TV stand (ouch) my set now has a permanent shadow on the lower left quadrant of the screen and a dot of what appears to be a reflection near the center of the screen on the edge of the shadow. The projector lense was cleaned, but the shadow remains. The repair guy says it is "the light engine", but I have my doubts. The estimated cost of replacement is $1500.00.
By knocking into the tv you have shifted the light tunnel in the light engine. The repair for this is to replace the light engine the part number is BP96-01198B you can order it from Samsung parts.com The cost for the part is 985 dollars but if you return the one the repair man takes out you get a core credit of 350 making the light engine only 630 dollars or so...You should be able to find a repair shop to put this in for labor of less than 300 maybe even 250...our shop does a Samsung for 190 Labor. Hope this helps.
