Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer.Your DMD is most likely failing. The DMD (Digital Micromirror Device) is a small chip. In this case, it contains roughly a million micro-mirrors that make up the picture you see. CLICK HERE to go to a link that shows you the chip. Click on the video in the upper right hand side of the linked page.That chip is actually part of the engine board. The board itself costs between $150-300, not counting labor to replace it.I have a Samsung DLP. I'm awaiting my first dot as well. They seem to multiply rapidly after the first one appears.Please don't forget to accept my answer unless you have further questions. I would be happy to assist you.Rob

Can just the chip be replaced
It can, if you can locate it. But I wouldn't unless you've got a lot of practice soldering.
