It is a dead pixel and samsung will not honor any warranty on dead pixels under 20 of them. It is considered within tolerence level despite it being a damn pain and a fault that shjould be rectified by replacement.

But you can try.

Good luck!

That is the first sign of the DLP chip failing ,the number of white dots will increase as time goes on.
The only solution is to have the DLP chip replaced, but it is an expensive part. You can call Samsung at 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center.

Own a Samsung DLP TV 42 inch and white dots have


The random whit dots you are seeing is more than not the DMD or million little mirrors board. The white spots represent some of the mirrors that are sticking in the on position. In that case they are always reflecting white light from the lamp. I don't concider the DMD board a do it yourself repair since on the older DLP set it requires mechanical alignment as well. The best thing to do is contact a techincian and see what they might charge to repair the TV for you. Please take a few moments to rate my answer...Thanks..
