Part arrived today, 2 days after I placed the order. Got it here as dealer92 (and others) suggested: http://partstore.com/Part/Samsun...aspx?s=froogle
Display came right up like nothing happened and... found a bunch of weird shadows at the bottom of the screen.
Back to the workbench. Pulled the color wheel and looked a bit closer. Turns out that vacuuming out the broken glass wasn't enough. I turned the light engine upside down and shook out a whole bunch of glass shards that the vacuum didn't get.
There's an access hole at the bottom of the wheel well where a lot of glass escaped and scattered underneath. I made sure that I shook it with the light tunnel pointing down in case any glass got in there.
All OK now. However, the picture looks different than before. I'll have to play with the adjustments a bit. The index delay (service menu, color wheel timing) didn't need to be changed.Comments for the original instructions:
5. There is a connector that I have placed an arrow on. This is attached on the other end in the AV input unit on the left. Detach this cable and stow it in the A/V area.
The next connector to the right (above 61" label) connects to the front side of the light engine. It's a tight fit and if you pull out the LE, the force on the cable will try to pull the connector out. Detach the connector. When you slide out the LE, simply put it back. The problem is the adhesive cable tie on the side detaches, just stick it back on later.
The small green circuit board with the big blue switch (above "622" on the label) is the safety interlock. Push on this switch to let the unit power up when you're plugged into the main AC. However, it's easy enough to simply put the back panel on - there's enough force to keep the panel on without any screws. Don't bypass safety interlocks. 'nuff said.
7. There is a DVI cable attached to the AV unit that needs to be disconnected. Leave the end attached to the LE on. Just above the DVI cable on the A/V input wall is a plastic cable clip. Remove this clip as it will get in the way when the light engine is removed. It will come out with a little effort (and can be reinserted when done).
10. This is the DLP lens assembly if you’ve never seen it. In front of it there is an angled plastic shield. Careful not to bend it as you pull the LE out. To the right of the lens is a black plastic shield with a label on it (lower right corner in the photo). There are two small brass screws holding it in place. Remove these and keep them separate as the color wheel is held in by brass screws with a different thread type.
14. This is the wheel well. Inside you will probably find tiny bits of colored glass. Use a tiny vacuum, or a household vacuum with a narrow extension attachment and carefully
vacuum the area. Be sure the rubber gasket doesn't get caught on the intake.
Remove the DVI cable that was left attached in Step 7. Place a large box or on the floor that's sealed against leaks. Or, just line the box with a plastic trashbag. Take the light engine and invert it over the box. Shake it carefully until all the little glass shards are out of the light engine. Be sure to orient the light engine with the light tunnel pointed down (lamp on the bottom) so you can shake out any glass that may have gotten inside the light tunnel.
18. Index Delay
is under the Service
menu, near the bottom of the list. Hit Select
to enter the menu, Menu
to back out.
18a. A reminder to always wait for the lamp fan to turn off before unplugging the unit. The lamp needs time to dissipate heat or it's life will be severely shortened.
