It does sound a lot like a buffer board problem, Just which one is the question. Sometimes it is in fact a connection issue. But 1/2 of the screen missing sounds like maybe connection between the 2 buffer boards. It could possibly be the panel. If that is the case. ITs over for that set. But i would suggest first calling samsung and asking them to extend the warranty for 90 days or so. Sometimes they will do this for nice customer such as yourself. 1-800-SAMSUNG. Let me know how this turns out first then we can proceed further if needed. Good luck and keep me posted. Sincerely Jay

If these spots are small, they are likely the visual effect of a failing DLP chip. When some of the tiny mirrored surfaces on the chip stop moving, this is the result. This is not something you can fix yourself. A Samsung authorized service center will charge $400-$500 to replace it for you.

I had the same issue happen to my vizio lcd just this weekend. Everyone is telling me is a bulb or backlight or something. It would explain the loud pop and no picture, but I'm not getting sound either so I'm not sure what exactly happened. Only after about 2 years too. I'm trying to find parts to just fix it myself.
