It could be one or both, but i would just try the lamp first. There has been only a few times whre i have seen both fail, the lamp can dammage the ballast. But if the lamp is striking the ballist is working to some extent, so i would not assume the ballist is bad at this point. Although if you are still having trouble after the lamp repacement then i would suspect the ballast.

SOURCE: I have a Samsung HLP-5085W
I suspect it is a power supply, and has been the whole time unfortunately. I am not finding any videos for how to change it out, but it is not much more difficult than doing the color wheel and lamp ballast, if you can handle those I think you can do a power supply. Just get the new part, find the old part in the TV based on the new part... and pay attention to how to take it out.. it is not much more beyond that..
I am still checking for a video walk-through for it, or a site with step by step pictures.
Thanks, let me know if you have any questions or concerns, just reply to my answer here and I will be right back with you.
