It was to cover early failures. Today we should be in the time of expected failure rates. I have a Ti document on the DMD and it shows we should log more of DMD failures in a few more years.
-> Since Ti is the source, I'm sure you will include anything from Ti in your purchase decisions from now on?
I called Samsung about the white dot issue my TV is having. They told me the DMD chip would be at no cost but they would have to contact a tech and the service charge would be $150. I have read 100s of these forums that people did not have to pay a dime. Can someone please help me with this? We have had our Samsung TV for 7 yrs now and every year our bulb goes out and we have to spend $150 on that too! I love my TV but if I have to pay for this chip to be installed I will not be owning another Samsung product. Thank you in advance!
