Have a wd60638 changed the lamp because old one busted now the TV works fine for about 3-5 minutes starts to hum and a clicking sound and pictures begins to flicker with colors going in and out

normally no bulb will bust ever unless you have oil on the lamp. sooo , it got too hot then. even if the fans turning its not putting out.
check the exhaust it should blow a lot of air past the lamp.

The picture flickers occasionally. I am wondering if the bulb is going.

The WS-55809 is a rear projection TV and does not have a bulb, it has 3 picture tubes. DLP and LCD Projection sets have bulbs, or mercury vapor lamps. Does your picture flicker equally with different inputs?

Hi I have a Samsung HLN467W, a 46" DLP TV. And after 50-60 minutes, it starts to flicker white, like lightning flashes. But the whole screen is not blank white, it's more like the images are...

It seems color wheel problem in your tv that gets problem after some time and you hear high pitch noise along with picture flicker.
Color wheel need to be replaced to solve this issue. Required color wheel is available with (click to view image of part and price info) and it is job of qualified tv repairman because light engine will take apart for that.
Hope these info will help you.

Picture flickers on Sony HDTV

Hi,It seems your ballast(board that powers light bulb) is going weak.The ballast was used to provide a lower voltage because lamp didn't use as much as brand new one. A newer one takes more voltage and when ballast doesn't provide as much power it will flicker or produce a dimmer image.I found the one for your tv here: Good luck and God bless you!

Rca tv will not power on

Check the horizontal output transistor. This may be shorted.

When the TV is flickering, do you notice any noise in the audio? If so, it could be a loose connection inside the set or a High voltage transformer going bad. Does it constantly flicker or come and go. If the latter, can you slap the side of the TV or jar it to get the problem to come and go? If so, it is likely a bad connection inside the set. I'm assuming that when you were playing the movie that you used the A/V input jacks rather than using the tuner on channel 3. Otherwise the tuner could have bad connections or bad grounds inside. A repair shop will most likely have to fix this problem. If the set was over 9 years old however, I'd upgrade to a new HDTV set.
