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,

The problem lies not with the manufacturer but with the technology. While DLP is one of the clearer, crisper rear projection technologies, it is still rear projection, and therefore the most unreliable of the TV technologies, LCDs being the most reliable and the least expensive to fix (relatively speaking). Projection TVs require that the lamp be changed every 2 years (with about 6 hours a day of use) but this can be as often as 6 months to a year for households that use the TV all day long. Lamps cost 150 to 200 dollars in most cases. Beside the lamp, the other parts in the TV can go as you have learned and they are not cheap to repair. I would recommend an LCD tv as they usually manifest problems in the first year (under warranty) if they are going to have any at all. No man-made technology is 100 percent, but I have to say that Samsung is an excellent brand, very high quality, and more features than the competitors. I own one myself (LCD) and have had it for over a year with not a single problem and it gets heavy use as I use it for HD cable, PC monitor, blu-ray, and Xbox 360.
To wrap things up, let me just say that were this problem to be fixed, being a projection TV you might run into these issues in another couple of years again. I would cut my losses and try an LCD (current generation plasmas are also good but they are super expensive to fix if they do break).

First, A common mistake made is when you insert the orange ribbon cable from the Color Wheel into the DMD bd. To correctly insert the Ribbon Cable you need to look at both sides. You will see a shiny silver side and a dull black/orange side. You must insert the shiny silver side AWAY from the Color Wheel or towards the rear of the set. Now for the Ballast. When you power up the tv,Do you hear a short Buzzing sound? If you do that means that the Ballast is trying to fire up the Lamp and is working. Next, do you hear the Color Wheel spin up? If you do not then you have installed the Color Wheel incorrectly and you need to repeat the installation while making sure that you hold the rubber gasket in perfect place or else it won,t work. Chances are the gasket is in the wrong position and is binding the Glass Wheel. The Ballast is on the right side of the engine and on top of the Lamp Housing. You will see two RED High Voltage wires coming out of one end. Don't worry, there is no stored voltage in the ballast so you won't get a shock providing you have unplugged the tv from the outlet. That is the first step before you change any parts any way. Listen for the correct start sequence. With the rear backing off and the Safety Interlock Switch is being held in the up position, turn on the set. First sound you hear is a clicking which is the power on relay engageing. Then you will hear the fans turn on and then the Color Wheel spin up. Once the Color Wheel spins up and comes to full RPM then the Exciter on the Ballast will Buzz for less than half a second and then the Lamp should light up. Now if you have installed the correct Lamp and correctly installed the Color Wheel and you either are holding up the Interlock Switch or have reinstalled the rear cover and tightened all of the screws you should have a working tv.
