Broken Mirror I have the Samsung HL-S6187W 61 in. DLP tv. It's a fantastic tv. However, the mirror was broken. I have heard you can go to your local store and purchase a regular mirror that fits your tv for a cheap price and you can have a good picture. However, I have also heard that with broken mirrors your tv can be "scratched" or something on the inside, which requires you to replace the whole thing for perfect picture. Anyone have any advice? And how hard is it to change a mirror?
You need to see if the lens where the light comes out is scratched.. if it is then the picture will never be right until you replace it..as for a cheap replacement mirror the picture might be watchable if it is a good quality mirror

Your DMD (Digital Micromirror Device) is failing, It roughly has 900,000 mirrors on the chip that move away or towards the light for shading. You may be able to find this board through Shop Jimmy or by simply googling dmd board for your model#
You need to replace the light tunnel.you will need to remove the lamp and color wheel along with the lamp housing and fan housing to replace it .If you are not comfortable taking things apart you might want a tech.
