I posted this over at CNET, but thought I might get a more knowledgeable crowd from here.
I've got this 42inch Samsung DLP (model # HL S4266WX/XAA, version PB02) that has started showing off mostly black and three white dots. What is strange is that every piece of information I find about it only talks about the white dots. I even talked to Samsung about it, and they said they will only fix the white ones and not the black ones! Does anybody have any idea what is wrong that I have predominantly black dots popping up instead of white ones? It looks like little bugs!
They show up across every input channel, and they don't move. I think there are more now than there were about a month ago... they sort of crept up on me.
It looks like you have a few white dots too. Generally, over a short period of time the white dots increase. At that point you will have a claim on the white dot issue. So call Samsung CS if you get more white dots, and tell them that. Don't talk about the black dots as they will just tell you to go away.
