The DLP chip has failed and must be replaced. Samsung was covering the cost of repair for this problem on certain models, but I am not sure if yours is covered. You can call 1-800-samsung to find out if your unit is covered and where the closest service center is located.

How do you clean the dust out of the projector, there are particles that look like small white stars on the black areas and black stars on the white areas. Is this dust?


If you focus the image on a screen up close to the projector and notice small rectangular black and white spots, then you have pixel failures.

I have white and black spots on my 65in hd1080p what is it tv is on 2 years old


Hi, I have a mitsubishi 65" DLP model # 65733 that I bought in December 2007 brand new, about six months ago I started spoting white dots on my screen that started blinking and then became permanent, thinking is was dust I cleaned everything inside with compressed air without success.
The stars multiply daily to a point that it was intolerable to watch anything with all the white stars and a few black ones that showed up.
We called mitsubishi but got no where, I was out of warranty. (they still deny having a problem with their DLP's)

I had a service tech inspect the tv and was told it could run about $800 to $1000 to replace the light engine with refurbished parts with 90 day warranties.

Researching on line I came across a DLP chip that is compatible with several mitsubishi and samsung models, so I decided to chance it, and replace just the DMD chip before we trash the tv, it was unthinkable to pay $800 to repair a tv that we could buy now for under $900.
Thanks God the "gamble" paid out and the problem got solve with just $150 DLP chip in about 15 minutes of my time.
If you are not mechanically nor electronically inclined, I recommend you use a technician for the installation, but don't let anyone tell you you need to replace the whole light engine, it is a ripoff.
If your problem is just white or black dots on the screen that do not move.......this will solve your problem!!

P.S. Hope this will help you and for the record..... "I will never buy a mitsubishi product again".

Sir, its white small dots on complete screen, like sky with stars,


Place a white piece of paper about 1000mm in front of the screen and focus the image sharply.
Choose menu, image, advanced then select color manager.
go through the color options and check if some pixels are permanently on or off (ie small dots or black) instead of a uniform colour on the screen.

The DLP chip is most likely the faulty component

White dots on screen


Your DLP chip is failing. The tiny micro mirrors within this chip are stuck. More white dots will appear over time until it looks like a star field on your screen. Most places will tell you that you need a new light engine, however you can replace the DLP chip itself and it will take you about 30 mins. You can find the chip online for around $349 but I think I have DLP chip you need brand new for $225. If you are interested in this contact me. tharizen@yahoo.com

My projector is showing multiple white dots, looks like lots of small stars all over the screen when projected to screens. is this mean I need to replace the lamp? TDP-XP1 model.


The link to the article explains the the cause of the white syndrome none of the previous internet experts have a correct solution. I have the same problem the link to the article attached is for a Mitsubishi projector but all the chips are the same. http://www.fixyourdlp.com/2012/04/26/solve-the-mitsubishi-white-dot-problem-for-under-200/
