btw........Joe....how you doing with your repair? We didn't mean to derail your thread.
I am glad to hear that others are making progress!
In terms of my TV status, I am still going through the approval process with Visa for their "extended" warranty repair. After submitting the rational for the repair online, I had to send in the sales receipt and explaination for the claim. After a week they contacted me and told me I needed a written repair estimate. In another day they should contact me with their resolution.
BTW the shop I brought the tv to for an estaimate has originally told me a month earlier that it needed a color wheel and light engine. However, the technician who handled me at the repair store , called Samsung to get the parts needed etc. The written estimate just replaces the DLP and DMD board: total cost came to $840.
For the record these are the same part numbers as Pez's eventhought my TV is a 46" unit -HLS-S4666W ( vers PB02). So it seems all these HLS PB02 units may have the same DLP and DMD boards.
DMD Board BP96-01636A
The labor cost was quoted as 300$.
I don't understand why the DMD board is to be replaced and did not wish to ask. It is likely that they order it assembled which then makes the replacement trivial.
