If you want to try to do it your self and save some money, here is a howto for the color wheel... there is also a link on the page to a website that sells the color wheels for under $100 http://www.jangro.com/a/2006/07/24/samsung-dlp-replace-color-wheel/
Sounds like your color wheel may be at fault. Do you ever hear any unusual noises coming from the rear of the TV? Color Wheels usually make a humming sound as they go bad. This is because the tiny bearings in the color wheel motor have begun to misshape from use and heat. This is a known issue in this TV! Expect to spend $300-500 to have this serviced by a service company. If you have the right stuff, you can do it yourself. If you search the web, you'll find a color wheel for this TV for under $100, but installation can be tricky.michtech
