I Need some help with Samsung DLp Model HLN617Wx

I been having this problem for about 6months now..first i thought it was a lamp but i just put a brand new lamp in about a month here we go ...when i first turn the tv on the picture comes on all washed out with no color and stays that way for 15 seconds than clears up...and it will run for few hours then the tv will turn off on it's on with all three led's in the front flashing and only thing i can do at that point is unplug the tv and wait about an hour or so then turn it on..(right before it turns off pic starts doing the same thing as it does at initial turn on..washed out )almost sounds like arcing from the lamp because lamp is flickering at that time..i have tried 2 different lamps...but have not changed the ballast yet. N E one ran into this problem...Help
