Question about Samsung Projection Televisions
It sounds as though your light chamber is collapsing. This is caused by intense heat from the lamp inside the light engine causing the glue to melt that holds several tiny mirrors in a pyramid shape. This is a very intricate repair but can be performed relatively cheap compared to the replacement cost of entire light engine if you find the right service person. Look for an authorized service center or at least someone who knows what the expression light chamber collapse means. The small group of mirrors is located right behind the color wheel and requires the lamp, ballast, color wheel and housing to be removed in order to be replaced. Caution should be used when replacing this fragile compenent.
