    I have a Samsung HLR5067W that I purchased in May 06. A few months ago
    it started getting horizontal colored lines across the entire screen.
    The Technician is saying it is the light engine. I know they have
    issues with the light tunnel but can the light tunnel make it appear
    the light engine is bad? Is there a high incidence of light engine
    failures that Samsung is not admitting to? Should they replace the
    light engine at no cost?

    We have Samsung HLR4266 with intermittent video problem. Sometimes horizontal bands of color move over the screen. Other times picture is perfect for days or weeks. Video clip of problem: http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/photo/yBD...

Yes this has been a common problem since 2005 and I have had 2 light engines replaced in my Samsung. Luckily I have the 5 year warentee.

White spots on samsung DLP tv


DLP/mirror chip is going bad. A common problem on Sammy TVs after 2-3 years. Chip is user replaceable (try samsungparts.com or ebay) for about $150-200. Sammy was (last year) repairing the DLP White Spot problem for free. You MUST talk to ECR (executive customer service) to even think about getting that consideration--forget the standard CS people. Don't know if they are still covering this out of warranty in 2010.

TV has little stars, and cuts off automatically


Go to the Samsung website, find your model under the search function, and click on one of the returned links. Once there, you should see a link that says "Featured Accessories". Click on that and you will go to the Authorized Samsung parts site, where you can find the EXACT cost of the parts needed. Hope this helps. Mine went out, and it was only $65.
