What you have is quite common in your model. You have a bad DLP chip, this part will need to be replaced. If you have this done professionally you are looking at $500-600 for the repair.

However, I might have some good news for you. Samsung is replacing these for free on certain models. So the first thing you need to do is call them at 1-800-samsung to complain about the issue, they may fix it for you.

If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don’t hesitate to ask!
