Lamp is possible especially if the ballast was bad--it powers the lamp. Color wheel will usually display some issues--high pitched whine or fan like noise---with the lamp removed look where it faces--color wheel is there--any broken or missing pieces and it is the problem---
The wheel is directly connected to the set---set will detect if wheel not moving or moving too slow etc and almost instantly turn the lamp OFF.
from your description sound like you might have a stalling color wheel. the color wheel on a dlp is what provides the color. it is a spinning disk of different colored glass. that must reach certain speed for the tv to operate. and like all moving parts eventally break, and need replaced. you may be able to replace this if your tecnically inclined but i recommend a tech. it may need be setup
We just replaced our color wheel and it took about 2 hours. We used this site because it was the only one that somewhat resembled our TV http://guides.fixyourdlp.com/samsung/bp96-01579a.php Our TV had a loud humming noise and no picture. We also had to replace the bulb. Hope this helps.
go on the samsung website get the part number and then go on ebay and purchase the ballast. its half the price. pull out lamp assembly and right under it is the ballast. 2 or three screws hold it in. and there are 2 plugs that need to be undone. its very easy. hope this helps. i did it in about 15 min
