Question about Samsung Televison & Video

1 Answer

Hi. I have a Samsung DLP that I purchased about 7 years ago. Over the last week when watching HDTV channels ( live or PVR) some faces of people are showing a green line on the left side and then a red line on the right side. These lines are not straight and they do shift around in the face of the people. Any ideas what is causing this? Any solutions? Thanks

Hi,Yes your problem sounds like the DMD board.This is how it works: http://electronics.howstuffworks.com/dlp1.htm Basically the light of the lamp goes through a tunnel that carries a color wheel(rotating disc with a gamma of colors that creates the colors on your tv)then the light of the lamp goes through the DMD board which is a chip composed of around 2 million pixels that creates the images and colors.When it starts to fail it will create black bars,pixelation,color distortion or white dots on screens. Here's a video that will help you find where the DMd chip is located : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jr_9A5Xd2Q Have a blessed one!

Chris,

I had the same problem. I bought my tv at Best Buy and my warranty included a new bulb for the lamp. They only last about 2 yrs or so depending on how much you watch the tv. You can also buy replacement bulbs online that don't cost too much. BUT, you will need to replace every couple of years. The things you listed are exactly what happens when the bulb goes out. Hope this helps!

The DLP chip is failing and must be replaced. You can call 1-800-samsung to find out if this is covered under any special warranty and to find the nearest service center.

Hi,

You get white spots inside the samsung DLP tv due to bad Digital Micromiror Device , or bad 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
This is well know problem with SAMSUNG DLP...

The DMD chip is failing.If not under warranty expect to pay a few hundred to several hundred to get it fixed

The mirrors on the DLP chip are slowly sticking either fully open (white) or fully closed (black). The part that contains the DLP chip is the Light Engine. It is the most expensive part of the TV.Only the Samsung TVs has this issue.

Replacing the DLP chip and the micro mirror would solve this issue...

Pleaserate this solution,

Picture is going dark to bright and making a clicking noise


Hi, sounds like you`ll need that tech again, your description sounds like a bad color wheel, if you let it continue and it shatters it can & probably will destroy your light tunnell, sorry for the bad news but now you know not to keep running the set, this is a very common problem with dlp`s and it`s exactly why we tell our customers not to purchase dlp`s, gl, video-tek

I have heard of some lamps only lasting a few months depending on where they are purchased. Sadly there is no way to test the lamp, short of substituting in a working set to try it. . and to test the ballast or DMD you would need detailed service info as DLPs are fairly easy to diagnose, however they have numerous things that must happen in proper sequence for the set to boot up. If you need any further info please let me know.
