3 yr old Samsung 61" color unwatchable after it warms up

Started getting shimmers of blue, then red screens a couple of weeks ago.  This only happens when the set has been turned on for 15-30 minutes, before then it is perfect.  The problem has degenerated since then, now is a completely unwatchable jumble of colors.  The set is about three years old, I replaced the bulb about 8 months ago, but that's all it's had done -- any ideas or suggestions??

Whats the model number man? I am good but there are many many 61 inch Samsung TV sets. Is it a plasma set, LCD?

If the set loses the color

If the set loses the color completely, there is some good news. The color wheel could be going bad inside the light engine. If the color does not go out completely, bad news, it could be the DMD board and that is on Nationwide backorder BUT get this, it cost ALmost a 1000 bucks!
