SOURCE: Ballast or Lamp?
my tv is also turning off and the three light keep blinking. the tech came out and changed the lamp and was ready to leave and then the tv started to flickering again. He then said that it was the light engine and it would cost about 1000 dollars to fix. Is it something that I can replace?

SOURCE: ballast or color wheel next?
The color wheel will normally spin-up even for a brief moment when the set is powered up. I have not seen a color wheel go out with a lamp. I have seen a ballast go bad with a lamp. I would replace the ballast first. You did not state wheather the color wheel was noisy or not. On the Samsung DLP, the color wheel is normally very noisy before it is gone. I hope this will help you.

Be sure to label your wirers when disconnecting, it really is easy to change out the color wheel,thats what I had to do to mine another expert on FY did post How to replace Color Wheel see if you can find it they did an excellent job on that Post.Color wheel is located in front of the Lamp, Pull lamp out and use a flash light you will see it. You will also have to pull the chassis out good enough to be albe to reach color wheel .Good Luck with your Repair.

Testimonial: "Appreciate your help link. Unfortunately, my problem didn't stop there but at the main power board at the heart of the set; a big ticket item if you can find one! So I took my lumps and bought a new model. Regards, Mark"
