On my HLT5087 purchased in March 2008, I am on my third red LED. The 2 bad ones were replaced under an extended Mack warranty that I bought for $105, so I made out on that. I replaced the DLP chip about a year ago, from a 6103 to a 6143. The old one only had one white dot, but it was right in the middle of the screen and it drove me nuts. The picture is stellar right now. Now I have the three flashing LED's on the front panel when the set is off, but it is working fine right now. I might go ahead and replace the caps on the 2 power boards.
My brother has owned a HLT6187 since January of 2008 and has had zero problems.
Looks like I missed the boat on the settlement, or is Samsung still doing exchanges?
