I bought my Samsung, model number HL67A750A1F, in Dec. of 2008. White dots started appearing about 3 weeks ago. As of today, 6 dots. I've contacted Samsung over the phone, and submitted a ticket through their Facebook support page. Same response from both - my set isn't included in the list of affected TVs, it is "normal wear and tear." In other words, they aren't willing to support their DLP sets anymore since they have moved on to flat screens. I don't believe for one second that several models, manufactured within a couple years of each other, all displaying the same problem, are NOT sharing the same defect. And the TV repair shop that they reccommended to me, whom I will have to pay out of my pocket, wants $85 just to walk through my door, and will not give any estimate of repair costs over the phone. I guess I'll have to try working my way up the phone support hierarchy and see if anybody at Samsung still cares about their product reliability and customer service.
