I have a picture but the tv will periodically turn itself off during the day and then flash the 3 blinking lights...anyone know what the problem could be. We can fix it ourselves if we knew for sure what it is.

SOURCE: Samsung DLS not working(with new lamp)

The grinding sound is most likely the color wheel. The lamp will not fire up if the computer senses the color wheel is not in motion or turning too slowly. It does this to protect the color wheel from being burned.
Something else you need to realize is the fans sometimes make some noise(especially the fan at the rear of the DMD Board).
The Ballast does not go bad that often and is misdiagnosed more times than it actually needs to be replaced. Sometimes the DMD Board is defective and won't send the color wheel the signal to start which in turn doesn't let the lamp turn on. I have read this misdiagnosed as a bad lamp, ballast, and color wheel multiple times. I currently have two of these in my shop at the moment and they were both verified by swapping known good DMD Boards.
There is some very good information available on this site but many times it isn't that simple of a repair. You need to get all the information and verify before buying parts. Most of the time it will pay for someone to have a reputable shop do a repair rather than buy parts that are not needed. I have had three people buy lamps in the last week, and two replace capacitors, only to give me a call and fix the problem correctly. All of these people got the repair tips from the internet.

Please Help. I have a 56" DLP Samsung and the lights just flash

Sounds like the lamp might be burned out. The Lamp should be replaced every couple years. If they are not replaced they will eventually burn out. Replacement is not that difficult and just requires a screwdriver. The lamp is located at the back of the DLP TV on the left side. The lamp can be purchased online from Samsung for about $130 dollars. You might be able to find a aftermarket one for less. Just use your telivision's model number located on the right side of the TV on sticker to cross reference the bulb that is needed or there might be a sticker on the back at the lamp housing that has the lamp part number. And make sure to spend the extra money and get the Lamp with the housing together. You can buy just the lamp for cheaper but that will require you to remove the old lamp from the housing and they are fragile. Much easier installation with the housing/lamp combo.

TV went off, and three lights come on (green "power", red "temp", and red "lamp")for just a second, in succession from left to right.

My television had two red lights flashing, one for Temp and the other for the lamp. I removed mythe lamp assembly and the bulb filament was burnt out. I order a new lamp and housing unit UX21517 and replaced it and now I have the red light flashing which is calling out the lamp again.

Samsung DLP TV time, temp and lamp lights blinking... won't turn

I'm not a TV repair guy but my owners manual states that when all three LED's or lights on the front of the TV are flashing, that the lamp needs to be replaced. Might want to look into this. Good luck!

Look in the owner's manual. These lights indicate the current condition. Usually the lamp light will go on if the lamp has failed and similarly the temp light if the fan has failed. With both, there may be a different problem. If you can confirm your model number, I can look up the problem indication as well.
