    Its most definately something to do with overheat, however I does give me any LED indications, and can turn the unit back on within 15 seconds, it lasts ofr another 10 minutes and shuts down again after a slight period of colour flicking.

That was not the bulb, your old bulb is still fine, when the bulb needs replacement, it turns off, do not start flashing.

Reasons for this can be a fault in the small board powering the lamp, a fault on the main board, or a bad cable or connector.

When it is properly overheating, it means that the unit is developing more than the normal amount of heat, and for this reason it shuts down (do not stays on flashing).
In your case , is more likely a faulty component, like a defective IC, that is manifesting the fault only after a while.

You can try inscecting the connectors (always power unplugged), checking if there is excessive dust on the inside and eventually hoovering it (from distance not to damage components inside), and eventually, carefully removing and putting back lamp. I don't think that will fix it, but you can try.

To fix this you will probably need a technician. If you decide to call for repairs, you can use the phone number listed on the owner manual to contact factory service.

Sounds like it could be the power supply. Try changing the brightness of the screen and changing picture modes like movie or standard. If this causes the flashing to change in severity, it will most likely be the power supply board

you have the same problem I have. The problem is fixed by changing the new light bulb. The problem appears again after 1500 hours of use. You can keep buying new light bulbs or avoid it by not buying another Samsung TV.
