I bounced between both of these, initially not wanting to pull the mounted assembly out but then doing it anyway to make things easier. Make sure to read all the comments.....the three covered screws he removes DO NOT need to be removed....eliminated the need to refocus if you do.

Thanks very much for the reply.

Should receive the part tomorrow and will have a go at the replacement.

Thought about a new TV, but like the way this one shows BluRays.

Here's another link I found also:

On the phone with Samsung, appears I qualify for a free replacement chip, but not the labor. They are being vague on the labor cost, though - I guess it depends on the vendor used. Anybody have a ballpark figure? I'm still pressing for labor also, and have been transferred to the next level, so we will see what happens. Seems some are getting full cost and some are chip only.

EDIT - Oh Snap, executive support just told me to stuff it - I get no chip, no labor, nothing! Damn. Back on hold again...

EDIT2 - Doh Transferred again...

EDIT3 - 4th person, same deal. Frig this - they don't care. I'll just get it from ShopJimmy.

Just got my new DMD installed.

Bought the chip from ShopJimmy.

Thanks for the help from "tcrews", and other posters.

Much easier than I anticipated. Pulled the light assembly and worked on it on the table. Just be sure to NOT touch the three green headed screws!

Fired up the TV and it looks as good as the day I purchased it, and needed no adjustments!

Got my chip, will be doing my 67". Did everyone use plastic glovess, or a grounding strap, or similar?

I suppose it's best to leave it off for a while before starting so no hot/warm components, etc?

I used neither. No grounding strap and no gloves. Pulled the components out, replaced the chip then reassembled. Done. It's your TV so you need to make the call on what you are willing to risk vs. effort/safety.

I noticed some folks said they were using heat sink paste on the replacement DLP chip, but don't see it on the videos I found. Anybody had any bad experiences or experience of any kind with that? I generally use paste on my chips that have heat sinks, but would prefer some user experience on the subject of this exact chip replacement. Thanks in advance! Doing this in a few minutes, so I really appreciate any comments.

Also, did anyone ever find a source for replacement fans? I read until I was blind and didn't find any.

Used heat sink paste, the tape (stock) was intact but came off too easy as it was very dry.

I was amazingly surprised at how dust free the inside of my TV was. I blew off the fans with compressed air but other than that, it was just a pull and replace chip. All my fans looked, ran great so I haven't investigated that yet.

Did it over the weekend, took about 30 minutes. Didn't use straps or gloves, I'm pretty familiar with working on PC's etc so it was pretty strait-forward, just made sure to ground myself often on the metal frame. Longest part was removing/re-installing the screws. . Picture is awesome again. Heat sink material was still good to go so didn't have to mess with that either, although I had some on hand.
