They were very faint but all over the screen. He said the DMD board was bad--basically the DLP chip that has all the mirrors was mis-aligned and was causing those shadows. Luckily it was under warranty.
My HL67A750 was working fine until recently, and one day images started flickering/jumping all over the screen....no matter what video source...even the TV menus were jumping up and down....it kept doing it once every 30secs....i turned it off for a week.
Tried it again, but it had gotten worse every time...and now it is at a point where...I turn it on...it makes the startup sound then gives this blue screen and then the display goes blank. I have no idea what is going on.....appreciate any help. thanks
Please see the video hereSome pics here...
I bought this TV in May 2009, had warranty for 12+3 (15months)...I have this in my basement, as my home theater TV, I rarely use it, I would guesstimate and say that I'v used it for <150-200hrs.
Called Samsung, standard answer, out of warranty, u gotta go to the website, and get a quote for paid service.
Anyway..my question is that is this a common problem? Can anyone suggest any fixes....I personally don't want to hang on to an Old TV...i would rather buy a new one ( DEFINITELY NOT A SAMSUNG EVER!! AGAIN)....than put $$$$ into this old one.
thanks for your inputs...and help.
