Well i received my DLP chip today, from encompass.com.
I went through the procedures that PezJunkie has shown here in this forum and the TV is as good as new. Took me about 1.5 hours to install from start to finish. It was pretty easy to install. I have a HLS5665WX/XAC type PB02 version TV. The part that I ordered is 4719-001981 Type X (thanks to Pez for helping me out with that).
. this link also helped alot in repairing my set, thanks supremeoverlord.
I too have written, called, spoken, with Samsung and have gotten the ole send off.........As usual Samsung never heard of this problem and cannot help me, suggesting a technician come over to repair my set for a measly $800+. Yeah right!!!!! like that's gonna happen.
I am dissapointed that this product failed soon after the warrenty and i will definatly NOT be replacing it with a Samsung product any time in the future.
