    I just acquired a Samsung HL-R5667W DLP set and today
    noticed (never really saw this previously) that there
    are 4 or 5 small dark flecks that appear to be coming
    from the inside of the screen. Most of them are tiny,
    barely noticeable, but one looks more enlongated, maybe
    1/8 of an inch. Since I never noticed them before, I wonder if this is something that likely was on the TV
    when I got it, or whether they could have developed after
    the fact? They all seem to be more or less in the same
    area of the screen - maybe it's nothing to be concerned
    about, as they are not terribly noticeable unless there
    is a bright, light solid color on the screen... but then
    again, I'd like to know now if this is something that is
    going to get worse.... and I take it there is no way to
    clean them? (I certainly don't feel comfortable removing
    the screen myself).

    The other thought I had was that maybe it was dust particles on the bulb itself .... not sure if that
    would produce a similar effect on the screen? I would
    think that if dust was the culprit, it would not be
    permanent, but these markings do not seem to ever change
    from day to day...

    Hey Mark. Ive got some on my HLR-6167W. I think it might be bad mirrors on the chip, or dust. I also have screen smudges that Samsung supposedly corrected but apparently hasn't. I'm calling for service after all the bowl games are over.
