White dots is usually the DMD itself. Never heard of it combined with freeze, but my guess is DMD board. Some freeze spray might be useful for troubleshooting.
Thanks for the quick reply!White dots is usually the DMD itself. Never heard of it combined with freeze, but my guess is DMD board. Some freeze spray might be useful for troubleshooting.
Good to know. Thanks! I guess I will be looking for a replacement DMD board then. Thanks again for your input!There are very few servicers these days that are skilled enough to repair boards at the component level, and none of the companies that do it are very reliable these days. If someone has figured out how to fix them it is most likely going to be a servicer who is a member of NESDA or ProSquad.
I was able to find a new DMD board and decided to replace the Digital board as well. I got them installed last night, and it seems to have fixed my problem. I've tested it out for several hours and no more freeze problem.
I do have one issue now that I never noticed before. The top right corner of the screen is a little darker than the rest. Like a shadow. I tried to research the problem, but could only find other models that had mirror adjustments you could do by turning screws. As far as I know, my HLN567w does not have that kind of adjustment.
Any idea on what the issue could be?
I don't know where a reset will leave you. I would set each setting from where you are.
Thanks for the input! The lines are stationary. I found a good deal on a new light tunnel. Should be here in a few days. I'll let you know if that is the issue.Probably reflections in the light tunnel. Those things tend to fall apart. Could still be some power supply artifact but if they are stationary it is likely optical.
Got the new light tunnel installed, but the lines are still there.Thanks for the input! The lines are stationary. I found a good deal on a new light tunnel. Should be here in a few days. I'll let you know if that is the issue.
I was able to talk to a guy who works on Samsung DLPs and he said if it was a screen lamination problem, I would see a difference when I pressed on the screen. There was no difference, so I guess I am back to it being an internal issue.Got the new light tunnel installed, but the lines are still there.
I finally found a thread on a different forum where a guy had the exact same problem with the faint grey lines on the screen. Only one person had a reply with any info. That guy who replied said a Samsung tech told him that it was a problem with the screen lamination and said it was not repairable.
Have you ever heard of problems with screen lamination? What are the odds that I start having issues with the lamination on the screen just days after replacing boards in the T.V?
