I have a HL-T5087SX-XAA Samsung model DLP.
I know that the part number for the chip is 4719-001997.
However the stamp on the chip is 1910-6103W. Some have referred to this as the "board number".
When I look for a replacement part, all seem to indicate that 4719-001997, 1910-6103W and 1910-6143W are all the same part.
Do you have any info on this ??
Thanks in advance.
The part I removed from my TV does have the 1910-6103W stamped on it. I don't know if this is a Samsung part number or not. If you put following in to a web search:
You'll find the part you want. Based on information I've read at resellers and the service manual, the DLP chip itself is mounted in a package called the "DMD panel". In my video while I'm inserting the new DLP chip, I have a graphic that points out the plastic ring that helps you line it up. This is actually a PCB (printed circuit board) that is mounted around the actual DLP chip. My guess is that this PCB package for the DLP is being referred to as "board number" since this the "board"/"package" that works in the HLT-??87s TV's.
I was well past my warranty time. I assume Samsung had no reason to help me. I had also read that to get it serviced cost $500 and up. I figured I'd do it myself for half that. I'm still a little worried that my TV will have "other problems" after reading more of this forum. But, I figured if I can fix my TV for ~$200 and it last for 5-6months (i.e. till Christmas) then the price of any currently selling TV will have drop by at least that much and probably more. In fact, before I committed to doing the DLP replacement, I started searching for what TV I'd get next (just in case I destroyed the TV in the process of "fixing" it). The TV I decided upon has already drop from 3200 to 2800 in the last 4 months. Hopefully I can put off buying a new one for longer. The technologies just keep getting better.
As for your HDMI issue, I scanned through the service manual I have. The "Jack Board" I see on page 74, is for analog signals only. Back on page 65, they show the main board. it looks like the HDMI ports sit/connect directly to the main board. I have not taken that board out or tinkered with it so I'm just going by the pictures. Sorry I can't be of any more help. Good luck.
