Question about Samsung HLP4663W 46" Rear Projection HDTV
We have the same problem. Is your tv still working fine since you replaced the DMD board? How much did that part cost, or how much do you think it will cost to repair? We'd rather repair the TV than buy a new one as we really love the picture. Thanks.
Yes, my TV is working just great since I replaced the board,
I can't tell you much about the cost of having somebody else do it. When I first started this a Sears tech gave me a price of $1500 to replace the entire projection unit, which was ridiculous enough to cause me to attempt a DYI solution.
If you are moderately handy, you can order one from SamsungParts.com and install it yourself. They are selling them for a little over $500 with a $50 core charge. (I'm pretty sure these are refurbished modules, because they were charging in excess of $900 last year).
The replacement is pretty easy, but aligning the board can be a tad tricky. It's no catastrophe if it isn't perfect, but it's nice if it's done well.
You can e-mail me at email@example.com if you opt to attempt this, and I can give you a few specific tips when the time comes.
