HELP!We have had our Samsung DLP TV for 2yrs 11months when all of a sudden white dots started to appear on the screen.

Does anyone know of a recall or a lawsuit that is going on so we can join. We Called Samsung and they just basically blew us off and told us our warranty was up and there is nothing they could do. I even spoke to the manager at Samsung. We still have a copy of the reciept and a transaction record.

I have a photo and a transaction # that shows I contacted Samsung.

Someone anyone with info please e-mail me.Thanks

I have the HL61A750 I purchased in 2008. I did not get any offer for a new chip. I called Samsung and they stated that this model is not under recall and would not be repaired. I would be liable for an "out of warranty service call" if I wanted it fixed. They would not acknowledge that this TV had a chip problem and stated there are no issues with this model. You only need to put the model in google to find a plethora of people with white dot issues. I am now awaiting a supervisor to call me back within two days.

Samsung is aware of bad DMD chips being sold as part of defective nature over a couple of years. They only fix certain models free of charge because they sold many of them and have HAD a certain quantity of these chips on hand (spare parts). They no longer offer free replacement on HL61A750 models. So next time you buy Samsung HD TV make sure you purchase a DMD chip that you will have to replace a few years later.

Mine is model HL_T6176S Fixed it one time fix free,today Sept 17 2013. it was bought in March 2010 and had no warranty!Replaced chip.
I have white dots all over my television.... I've also contacted Samsung.... Mine of course is not one of the models that they are fixing for free. A CRS made the mistake of telling me that if I was firm enough with the escalated customer service rep, that, in the past people have gotten their televisions repaired, free of charge. I commented without cursing, on their Samsung TV USA.... even responded to other posts, my experience. They banned me from posting or commenting on their page. Nothing says, You're right... wer're wrong... and we don't care.... like banning a customer who has lined their pockets. My new television is on order.... It's NOT a Samsung... nor will I ever purchase anything from them again.

I was having the same problem in the beginning of the year and I called 1-800-SAMSUNG and the representative said that it was covered under the white dot issue and that a technician would be sent to my house in a couple of days. The technician came and replaced the DLP chip at no cost to me and I was happy about that, but now here it is 3 months later and the dots are back!I just got off the phone with Samsung rep again and she said same thing, "technician will be there in a couple of days at no cost" Wondering if this is gonna be a routine... :roll

My 50 inch DLP began getting the infamous white dots. I called support and was told my model HL50a650C was not part of the recall. I complained to higher ups and they told me they never received this complaint with my model, but agreed to send a new chip if I would pay to have it installed. The repairman showed up and installed the new chip. This replacement chip had more white dots then my original. This apparently is not as rare as I was told. The repairman put my original defective chip back in my tv.
