Question about Samsung DLP HL-P4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Vertical shadow I have a 50" samsung DLP tv circa 2006 and I have a vertical shadow creeping in from the right side . It is slowly progressing over several weeks. I would think it was a result of the lamp being missaligned by a shock or a move but no such thing has happened and it continues to slowly progress

We had the same problem -- it looked like we were looking through a 1" strip along the left side through very dark gray glass.

Replacing the light engine solved the problem. The technician said it was caused by a felt-like lining inside the light engine whose adhesive was coming loose and the material was blocking part of the picture.

This was handled under our extended warranty with Magnolia (Best Buy). We don't normally believe in extended warranties, but since the DLP is new technology, decided to get one in this case. Good decision.

I have read about this issue many times,
it is the mirror inside the light tube that is coming unglued , you have to take it apart and reglue the mirror in place.
I think if you remove the lamp you can see the mirror down the tube.
use some high temp silicone to reglue it.

About $600.00 to replace. That's why manufacturers stopped making DLP sets because longevity is horrible. 5 yrs MAX if your lucky.

I have a samsung 50 in. DLP PBO2. I have black specs all over the screen and a few white one. Whats wrong?


This is a failure of the DMD board. The DMD board is the device that has the "million little mirrors" that compose each pixel of your display. The black specs are mirrors that are stuck in the off posistion therefore not reflecting any light at all. The white specs are the opposite reflecting light all of the time. This is a repair you should leave to a TV technician as once this board is repalced there is some electrical and mechanical alignment needed. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks...

Possibly a bad light tunnel assembly if the part is only a shadow effect. If not then probably a bad DMD board. The DMD board is part of the light engine but needs to be replaced by a technician.

Fading screen


If you're seeing a shadow either vertically or at an angle the most common/probable cause is the light tunnel in the light engine. I have this same problem with my ru-44sz51d and have found many people with similar problems. For reference search "dlp light tunnel" as many samsung dlp's are suffering from the same problem and have been since they were purchased. You should be able to repair this yourself, but only if you feel comfortable and are knowledgable in such a situation. The repair may consist of replacing any number of the 4 or so mirrors or just reapplying the silicone adhesive to the original mirror. As I have not done this yet myself I can only speculate and refer to topics I've read about. Good luck

Optoma RD-50 DLP has dark vertical shadow on right side of screen


turning off the main can be very harmful to rear projectors if you dont wait for the cooling off period, for instance when you turn off the tv from the remote, the fans inside are still on in order to dissipate the heat given out by the lamp. as a result some of the lens inside the engine may have burns-in caused by excess of heat.thus leading to shadows on the screen.

hope this helps

please rate me!

Samsung dlp tv


Yes, it could. There is a light pipe in the light path that could now be broken from the bumping or it could just be out of line from the bumping. Another problem could be the mirrors in the projection path could just need adjusted by the 3 screws that are beside the mirrors. This may also happen when bumped.

DLP TV: Left half normal, vertical 6" band center is gray, right half almost black. What's wrong?


No. The optical engine is OK. You need an adjustment in the light tunel. Call a tech to do it.
