Sounds like one of the Bulbs has burnt out. This is a very easy problem to fix. You just have to remove the back panel of the TV and replace the bulb on the side that has gone black.

The bulbs can be purchased directly from the dealer. (And are rather pricey)

BEFORE purchasing the bulb...I would first make sure that the current bulb has not become loose. Try reseeding the bulb and see if it will function correctly.

Haveing a black shaddow on the left of the screen


Most commonly I see this issue with Samsung DLP TVs. In that case it is caused by a collapse of some mirrors in the light engine. If your unit is a Samsung call 1-800-SAMSUNG and report the problem to them. There has been a class action lawsuit regarding this issue and you may qualify for a free repair.

I have a 56" DLP Samsung (HLR5668W) Right side goes solid black


The color wheels will never fix an issue like that. The only things that will cause that issue is a bad DMD board which is part of the light engine or the digital board which is not. Freak Squad need to replace the digital board.

Samsung 50" DLP Lamp died, new lamp will not light`


Bad news.  Mine did the same thing.  Mine is the 61", but the internals are basically the same.  I replaced the lamp and the problem was fixed.  Then after a couple days, it died again.  I replaced the ballast, to no avail.  Took it to the certified repair center and they said I needed a new DLP Light Engine.  They wanted $1250 to fix it, but I was able to order one online from partstore.com for $700 and fixed it myself.  No problems since.
Your certified repair center will charge a minimal fee to diagnose and then you can fix it yourself if you choose.
The easist fixes for the lamp problems are A) replacing the bulb and B) replacing the ballast.  Anything else, you'll want a certified tech to diagnose the problem.

Power issues (Tv not turning on) were typically due to faulty ballast. While the TV reports a bad lamp it is the ballast itself causing the issue. Samsung is well aware and will replace both the ballast and the lamp (since the lamp can be prematurely aged but the bad ballast). After replacment most people stop having issues.

Light cone


It is an optical issue as the light engine has to be replaced to fix the problem. I have seen a few DLP Samsungs do this. Hopefully you have some kind of warranty to repair it.
