Replace DLP Chip On Samsung HLT6187




What do you think about this video?

Christopher K: can you take out the detracting music ? 

Joe Basnett: Have fixed mine now too. This video is very helpful. Shame about the music, but even so, even as a novice I felt confident that this was a job I could do. Considering that I got the TV for free, and have just had to pay for a part (shopjimmy dot com), I am a very happy man.

Coco Mandrake: Skip the first paragraph if you are not interested in the long rambling version : Hi there, are there any other symptoms of a DLP LED chip failing other that white dots? I'm currently battling Samsung over a repair I had done by a Samsung affiliated service center roughly a year and a half ago. The tv would have to be turned on many times, progressively taking longer and longer, to start up. When it did the picture was fine while the TV was on. I never had white dots or anything similar yet the repairman told me it was the DLP chip and charge me $350. Now I am on the third repair with the exact same symptoms. The first they claimed it was the DLP(though Samsung claims they cannot tell me what part was put in the TV), the second they claimed it was the subpower(a cheap repair compared to the first and Samsung has the part number), and now it looks like another capacitor related power issue. The below paragraph is vital and I am pleading from some answer before I speak with Samsung again : So long story short, other than white dots are there any other symptoms of a DLP Chip failure? Can the chip fail without white dots? And would a failing chip sometimes after turning the tv on a million times work fine until it was turned off again? Thank you greatly. :)

Michael Lacelle: This video was awesome. Could not have repaired my TV with out it. Thanks

Jake Lonergan: Too bad I saw your video AFTER watching the Shopjimmy video and replacing the chip. White spots are gone but I removed the three "Do Not Remove These" screws. I take it they align the picture. Picture is a little high on the right. Now I get to figure out how to re-align it. Fun.

Jason Sugimura: I want to express my gratitude for this video! I've replaced parts inside desktop & laptop computers but never inside a TV. Bought the replacement chip online via ShopJimmy for $179 including 2 day shipping and a 20% off discount code. My TV is the HLT6187SAX/XAA model so its disassembly/reassembly were both different (but not extremely) from the video. My biggest issue was removing the board to get to the chip. My TV model has a small wire assembly that plugs into the top right of the chip board through a hole in the unmovable metal casing. I bought and downloaded a service manual which unfortunately turned out to be zero help. To resolve, I ended up loosening a plastic hood over the interior cooling fan to get to the offending wire assembly. After that the rest was easy and I successfully completed the chip replacement. THANK YOU!

Ken Jorgenson: Bought a new chip for $50 through ShopJimmy.com. This tutorial goes through the specific steps far too quickly, and is missing a step just before removing the old chip. The loud music is distracting. Other than that, it is very helpful - thank you.

Adam Miller: Replaced my DLP chip on Samsung HLT5087SAX TV today. Great video. Thanks!!

Keith Koloff: Could you slow down the reverse process . ?

WdnUlik2no: Just wanted to drop back in and say thanks again for your excellent video. I finally did my replacement this past weekend and everything went great! Some of the connectors on my HLT6187s were slightly different than what you have (like the monitor cables), but I was able to figure it out since they were in the same general location. My picture looks great again, and you saved me so much money by not having to pay a repairman!

Jordan Grosh: Good video, except for the music. The music made it almost impossible to watch. 

James Hall: I had white dots for a few months, today my screen wont come on... is this 2 seperate problems does anyone have any idea?

sproulman1: my samsung hlt6187 had 50 white dots. i got new dlp chip which had no. 1910-6143w on chip. after taking old one out it had different no.1910-6103w. everythingwas fine on video here and is great help. i had no issues with alignment of screen etc. my color and picture is much better also. inside of tv was bad. it had dust on 3 fans inside. 2 fans are in rear and 1 in front inside. dont order anything from co. called RETECHTV. they scammed me for price of a dlp chip . i turned them into my credit card co for arrest.

donahuevid: Thanks for posting this. I hit a brick wall because my Samsung HL61A750A didn't match what they were showing in the ShopJimmy video, but your TV is almost identical. So glad I found this and your other video about cleaning out the components while it was apart. My TV looks like new now!

109harold: Thanks for video I replaced a chip in Samsung tv and I have a shadow line about one inch wide vertical Line on left edge of screen . I tried to adjust by moving board slightly but no luck any ideas thanks in advance ... Harold

alfredo ayala: Go Easy on the Thermal Paste Billy!!!

Janet Boyd: I want to thank you for the step-by-step video on how to replace the dlp chip. I started getting white dots about 3 months ago and getting more dots daily. I ordered the part for only $184.99 at BuyNESP.com. I replaced it last night while letting the video guide me. THANK YOU SO MUCH - it worked. It fixed the problem.

Brandon Bristow: Wanted to thank you for taking the time to make this video. It made replacing my DLP chip much easier.

Baymond Rell: Same here man...thanks a ton really.

bigtorque: howd you get the board out ? I got to 4:57 then all of a sudden youre putting in the new chip .

WdnUlik2no: Thanks for the great video. I just noticed a dead pixel on my HLT6187S. I bought this TV in 2007 so I guess its about time for it to start having issues. I've already been in there to replace a fan, so it looks like I'll be going back in there to replace the DLP chip eventually. I love this TV and don't want to spend a couple of grand on a new one, plus I don't want to pay a repairman to rip me off. I'll go ahead and order the chip and when I notice more dead pixels I'll just replace it. Thanks again!! 

BigDrinky: Awesome... this was very easy to follow and it saved me an expensive service call. Knocked it out in a few hours and the picture on the set is great. No more dots!

lca473: Thank you for posting this video. I got my chip on ebay, and used your video as a guide. I was expecting to run into problems, but everything went smoothly. TV works great; no more stars.

Don McGreal: I just did this and it worked great. That is once I figured out that the back cover must be on for the lamp to turn on. So don't try to test it out without taking the final step of replacing the back cover. I would have saved hours if I had known.

sgayres: Note the 3 plastic buttons on the shiny cover that gets removed to expose the DMD board. Do not loosen these screws. These release the board and are used to align the projected image vertically and horizontally. If these are not loosened during this procedure, your picture's alignment will not change. So leave em alone! :)

jb1234: Thank you for the video. Your instructions made the DLP chip replacement easy, and now my picture is back to normal.

LAURA STALNAKER: Hi, I have a Samsung LCD rear projection ready TV Model # HL-R5087W that has great sound but no picture at all, I have hooked different thing to it DVD player, Computer, another TV, ECT... trying to get a picture, I have even done the flashlight test with the menu screen, but it does not show anything, I was told the Lamp was recently changed and the color wheel is good, it shows smiley face when its done booting up. it does not turn of by itself, when the lamp is changed and you reset the lamp hours, doesn't you TV need to have some sort of picture to be able to reset it ? and should the lamp light, when on shine up thru the square hole that sets right behind the screen , can anyone help me figure out what is wrong with this TV. Thank You Laura. 

DrewFromNC: I'm replacing my DLP chip in the same model to fix the white dots. I'm down to the step where I've removed the 8 screws that secure the bracket piece above the DLP chip and I see the chip thru the opening in the middle of the board. In the video, it looks like this board pops out to permit access to the other side where the chip is. However, even with the 8 screws loose, my board appears to still be secure. How did you get the board out? Is there a step omitted from video that I'm missing? Thanks!

m cat: Bob O posted the following 6 months ago. "My picture is a bit too high. I adjusted the screen in both settings and service mode, but still too high. Any ideas what caused this? My guess would be maybe I moved the mirror slightly when cleaning or tightened the screws down to hard. Just guessing." I have the same problem after replacing my dlp chip. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

WdnUlik2no: I usually buy my parts from Samsungparts com. But this chip is running nearly $400, I see the same chip on Ebay from a seller for $189 who currently has a 99.4% feedback rating. Where did you get your chip from and how much did you pay?

Izlude Tingel: sooooo lucky... my TV required a few hours of manually adjusting the DMD to align to the screen. pain in the neck.

wils2208: Have a guy that wants to charge an arm and a leg to replace this chip but after watching this video I'm pretty sure i can handle it. He mentioned something about programming the chip or something in that manner (i wasn't the one who spoke with him), but just to make sure...there is no programming necessary for replacing this part correct? and anywhere you suggest getting the part from. Only place I've found them new is eBay for about $180. Thanks
