73737 DMD housing stuck, wtf
So I'm trying to do what should be a simple, easy task replacing the flimsy DMD or DLP chip or whatever the heck you prefer calling it. If you have a 73737, good luck trying to watch a shopjimmy video, it will be of hardly any use. The DMD housing is completely different than the video, with extra screws, and when they are all unscrewed, the stupid cheap looking house is still stuck to the DMD board. I'm pulling on it from the bottom, I've tried lightly prying around every screw hole and it still wants to stay stuck on to the board for God knows what reason why. Just Genius! What a fantastic design and awesome video! I love getting stuck in the middle of simple, easy tasks...and I'm sure you will love it too when you have to fix your TV that looks nothing like a shopjimmy video I can find.
I used to build computers for a living, and that's why I'm not going to pry on the housing any harder, something is going to break. I'm sure Jimmy will cover that...
Have fun with your 2009 series TV's lol.
Edit: Another fun inconsistency with the video. The "lens shroud cover" which looks easily removable with 3 screws in the video, only looks like it has two. Then when you start to remove it, there is some foam on the opposite side that has a sticky backing holding the other side together, instead of a screw like the video suggests. I don't feel like ripping the sticky backing off of the foam near the lens just to take it off, which doesn't even look remotely necessary to fix the DMD chip. Except, the DMD housing is completely stuck and 100% opposite of whatever variety they show in the video.
Someone definitely needs to post an up-to-date video using at least somewhat similar screens. It is 2014 after all.
