Mgs62872,

Is there any noise associated with the times that the unit flickers? Samsungs are notorious for losing the color wheel. I have replaced many and they usually make a high pitched whining sound. It could be high enough of a frequency that you may not hear it. If the lamp is new and the old lamp did not shatter or short out before you changed it I would say that the ballast is fine and I would change the color wheel. You will have to at some point as this is the weak point with the Samsung units. I have at tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4160054-replace_color_wheel_in_dlp_projection_tv which will walk you through the process as well as identify places to purchase the parts at the best price.

Thank you for using FixYa and for the great rating. Great ratings help keep experts solving everyone's problems. Thank you.

I had to replace my lamp bulb in my mitsubishi wd-60638 tv and now i have a picture again but it is fickering and greenish tint to the screen


If you tried a cheap bulb then that might be the problem as some of the bulb carrage may not be complete4lyto spec. I had one that was close but there was a gap between bulb and where it fits. I went with a bulb dealer that had I believe a 1 year warrante and I have had no problems. I had a 73838 tv set.
