    Hi Woody,
    We haven’t done a blog for Samsung yet. They never had problems before. But check out this post from AVS Forum. It shows you how to replace the DMD chip which is the cause of those white dots. Good luck and let us know how things go. The DMD chip is the same for all these types of TVS so check out Discount-Merchant.com to find at a reasonable price.

      Careful here…there are different dLp chips required for different Sam, Mits and Tosh models. Resolution is the determining factor. Have your model number ready when speaking to the parts people.

    Yes. I just repaired my Sam 1080 RPDLP with the same Milky Way syndrome. It requires a new dLp chip. Check Youtube…there are several vids showing the repair in detail. It is simple and straightforward. I believe your model is 720P. The new chip is less than $100.00. I purchased my part from shopjimmy.com.

      Hi Def,
      Discount-merchant.com also sells the chip at a reasonable price. Glad to hear you got your white death syndrome fixed!
