Question about Samsung DLP HL-P5663W 56" TV
Previous answers are wrong unfortunately. And I'm sorry you've spent the kind of money you have to fix it. Its actually a very basic, tiny, annoying cause. So much so you'll be quite angry when you hear it: When you open the lamp door on the back of the TV, youll see a small toggle type switch that gets pushed in when the door gets re-installed and allows the TV to turn on. This is to make the power shut off in case someone tries to access the lamp with the set on. If memory serves, the toggle on my 50" samsung was blue I think. You can use duct tape or something but I actually used a very small zip tie to hold the toggle in place for a neater, less ghetto-fabulous fix. NEVER had it shut off by itself since.

My Samsung 50 in DLP began turning off spontaneously shortly after we purchased the set nearly 5 years ago. This problem has recently become more frequent. This afternoon I secured the blue switch with a plastic tie and the tv has not turned off since. Your problem sounds different from mine. Mine simply turned off - no flasing lights.
I talked with Best Buy earlier today and they told me that in some Samsung sets the problem was solved by a software update. If your set has a USB port you may be able to get this update directly from the internet.
