if the picture is still visible but lacking color, it is not the lamp. check the color wheel and make sure it is working. replacing the color wheel is a pretty easy task and can be performed by yourself without many problems. as a sidenote, older samsung dlp tvs seem to experience this problem quite often, although they usually sound like someone strangling a cat before the bearings go out..
partstore.com should carry your replacement for 100 USD or so, the part number is BP96-00250A.
before replacing it, make sure your old one isn't just stuck or not spinning at full rpm, if this is the case, you can usually remove it and clean the motor using electronic or contact cleaner that is safe for plastics.
to check everything out, you will need to remove the back panel of your tv, then power it up (keep kids, small animals, hands and such away from the back while powered up), take a look in front of the projection lamp and see if the wheel is turning. if not, a very good writeup is available here, this is the writeup i send my own customers to if they feel like attempting the repair themselves.
replacing the color wheel is actually not very hard at all, if you have ever worked on your own desktop pc (installed a new drive or upgraded it yourself) then you should be able to do this with limited difficulty.
hope this helps,

We have the same DLP set and had the same problem. The Color Wheel, P/N BP96-00250A, a $200 part needs replacement to eliminate your problem.

It is fairly simple to do. Just remember to turn OFF the tv, and DO NOT TOUCH THE LAMP ITSELF. Here is an online manual that has the instructions on page 10 of the manual. Just copy and paste this into your browser navigation bar.

To bring up the service menu, turn your TV off. On your Samsung TV remote, press Mute 1 8 2 Power. This WILL invoke 'service mode' and invoking this WILL reset all your custom picture and source name settings. I don't know the specific menu to find the lamp reset option, but I believe it is in the first menu context.
