Samsung HLT5676SX/XAA Starts up, shows picture, powers down

Two LED's are lit - The first (red) and third (green) upon turnoff. I've found details on that error before but am currently unable to location them again. I have attempted the "tape the blue switch" maneuver, which failed, and I have additionally tried removing the back of the TV and blowing all the dust out of the inside. The TV is the recommended space away from the wall and had not been moved in quite some time before beginning to fail last Saturday. On brief startup, it seems that both fans are working. I do have a picture, if only for a moment, and sound as well. The picture does not have spots and seems bright and clear. In addition, I can see the lamp come and hear the high pitched startup sound.
Turned the unit around and restarted. TV with sound ran as normal for a personal count of 35. Then lamp went out, screen went black, and I heard two distinct electronic noises about .5 seconds apart. They were accompanied by what I would describe as a flash of light from underneath / near the lamp door. I'm unsure if this information is useful, but I thought that I would add it just in case.
Any thoughts here? I feel like I'm somehow well versed in the obvious fixes, but I'm striking out. I've read in various places that this was the place to ask a tough question
Thanks folks, I sure do appreciate it -
