Question about Samsung 61" Slim-Depth DLP HDTV
This is a VERY COMMON problem on these sets. You could google and you would be shocked that how many people actually face this problem.This isn't a problem with Samsung, it is for almost all manufacturer's including Sony.
I'm afraid then its not very good news you have a failed light engine
The options are for either the DMD board (part of the light engine) to be replaced however this is very difficult to align and in any case the DMD board is very expensive or the whole light engine to be despatched to a re-build company like www.tristatemodule.com usually for under $300 however total cost for a tech to do could be $600-$1000.
If is under warranty, they would replace it without any charges. However, if it is out of warranty, call Samsung and confirm , if they have any recall for the same. If not, try to get some discount on the same as many people have been successful in getting the same.
