Re: [74f100] Samsung HLS6187W DLP/Weird Problem/ Part 2

You can't call it a chassis...That breaks all Television repair etiquette standards. LOL
If you take the shiny silver cover off, it will make sense. Just don't remove the 3 screws under those white plastic covers. They align the dmd board to the light tunnel. When you have the new dmd board and are ready to exchange them, then you take those 3 out.
When that cover is off, you'll see how the board itself is spaced vertically and horizontally within the mounting area. This is what you want to mark, measure, or what ever you choose to do. The new one MUST go back in, in the same position. If it doesn't, you will still get a picture, it'll just be shifted up, down, left, right, or canted.
Okay Jim, I see where those screws are behind the plastic covers. I will not touch them for now. Are there any other screws I should take out for now?
I don't understand it when you say this:
"When that cover is off, you'll see how the board itself is spaced vertically and horizontally within the mounting area. This is what you want to mark, measure, or what ever you choose to do.

1st- I don't understand all this vertical and horizontal spacing and measuring, you are talking about. Wouldn't all the screws go back into the spots they come from when the DMD board is slipped out, and new DMD board slipped back in?
2nd- From the pictures of the DMD board I am going to buy off ebay, the square metal gizmo (LOL) directly in the middle, (you know the one) the one with the 4 outer screws, and the 4 inner screws with springs trying to pop out from behind them, will have to come off the DMD board too. When will I be taking them out?
The screws that seem to be the ones that should give me problems, are the ones with those springs behind them.
One last thing. The last picture will be a picture of my unit with the cover off. But there are 2 DMD boards on fleabay, both saying that they are for my model TV, and both look identical to my DMD board.
The first picture of the DMD board on fleabay is "NEW" but it has a different CODE number BP94-02269A then what mine says on my DMD board, but they say it is for my TV. It looks identical to mine. Take a look yourself, and tell me if you think it would be okay!
Here is what is in the listing: "Ordered for customer, but never used. Used on Samsung TV's known models that use this part: SAMSUNG HLS5087WX/XAA SAMSUNG HLS5088WX SAMSUNG HLS5088WX/XAA SAMSUNG HLS5688WX SAMSUNG "SAMSUNG HLS6187WX/XAA" HLS6167WX SAMSUNG HLS6188WX SAMSUNG HLS6767WX SAMSUNG HLS7178WX SAMSUNG HLT6156WX/XAA SAMSUNG HLT6156WXXAA SAMSUNG HLT6756W"
The second picture of the DMD on fleabay is "USED" but it has the same CODE number BP41-00273B as the one in my TV, which it also looks identical to mine. Take a look at it too.
The reason I am asking about this is because I feel better about the seller from the different model number. Give me your opinion please on if you would feel safe in buying the one in the first picture.
