How did this problem come about? I replaced the DMD chip. TV previously had white dots issue, took light engine out and replaced chip reinstalled engine. Been thinking if one of the thin ribbon cable that goes beneath the lens shroud got damaged or was improperly inserted, the PE & PE2 cable looks OK.
TV Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 6 months ago

Yes, Error code 17 definitely indicates a problem with the connection.

If the cable is connected securely and looks undamaged then check the connectors themselves for any poor soldering joints - sometimes even if the solder joints look ok they can be cracked or dry on the inside, so try reflowing each solder joint by heating them up with a soldering iron.

Let me know if that works?
