Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.

The symptoms you're having point to a failed lamp in the TV. It will cause the exact problems you're having. The lamps typically last between 2-5 years tops and you should replace the lamp in your TV. The link below is where you can purchase the lamp for your set:

OK CAN YOU ANSWER ONE MORE QUESTION? WHEN TRYING TO PROGRAM THE DIRECT TV CONTROL BOX IT ASKS FOR THE CODE FOR THIS MODEL OF SAMSUNG THERE ARE ABOUT 50 CODES STARTING AT 5004 UP TO 5416 WOULD YOU KNOW THE PROPER CODE FOR THIS MODEL?
Expert:  Aric replied 2 years ago.
I do not know the proper code for this TV, you simply need to check all of the available codes, or run a code search if the Direct TV remote has this feature. Direct TV should be able to help you further on this seperate issue.
