Sounds like the color wheel is not turning properly. I would recommend calling 1-800-samsung to set up repair with an authorized service center. I would not try to replace it yourself. The part costs $120.00- $180.00.

If you can access the three projector lenses you will probably find them covered in dust, this shifts the light slightly giving a blurry 3D effect on the screen. Clean the dust off with lens tissue and window cleaner or a cleaner made for glasses and this will restore your picture.

Sounds like light engine or DMD board is going out. Is it on all inputs? when did it start doing; after a move, part being replaced, power outage etc? Does the menu screen have the same issue?

I recently had this issue on my Samsung HL-R4667W. Did the new lamp (phillips) but it still wouldn't light up and was flashing the lamp light and then stanby. I started to remove the rear covers of the TV thinking maybe the wheel or ballast finally gave out. After removing the lower cover I noticed a wire hanging at a unusual angle from a circuit board. I touched it and it fell off. Traced the wire back to the main control board and found that it was a ground wire. I re-soldered it to the board and the TV fired right up. My other lamp was fine too. I hadn't moved the TV in 4 years and only once since I bought it in 2006 so I can't think of anything that would cause it to come loose short of bad soldering from the assembly line. That was a year ago and it works fine still.

If this TV is a DLP - their should be a rear access panel on the back. Remove it and pull out the bulb cage. Then either replace the entire cage - or save money and just replace the bulb.

My HLS 4666WX/AXX had a similar problem. I replaced the lamp, I also used an air compressor to blow out all of the dust, and the picture improved, but, the problem still occurred. I then found info about how to reset the TV to factory spects. Power off, press Mute or Menu, 1, 8, 2, power. The set came on and started to work even better. I put a fan in back near the air intake vents. and the set worked great, maybe sutting down after 3 four hours and then I would power it back on. I finally called a repair service to come out to see if the set could be repaired. While waiting for the service tech. to show up the next day, I did another reset. This time, I unplugged the set from the power source, and also the power cord from the back set. I left it off for 2 minutes, previously it was 1 minute, I then plucgged it back in. I did the fractory reset over, Mute,1,8,2, power, it turned on, I removed the external fan I had set up, and it has been working like new sence then. One week now and everything is as new. The repairman said the external fan blowning in was not the best thing to do. As the fan inside sucks air through the cabinet and out through the vents. All my fan was doing was stopping the proper air flow. There were a few dark spots near the top of the screen that I thought were pressure marks. They have since disappeared. The technitian said there is a protective cover over the LCD screen and dust sometimes acumaltes in between the screen and the protective shield. So the fan thing evidently was able to pull the acumilated dust out as well.
