Hi

OK their are one of two issues in the main that are causing this problem.
The first and easiest check of the two is bad elco capacitors on the powerboard, samsung have had global issues with capacitors across all models worldwide and should be visually checked first as luckily they show telltale signs of physical stress when they are failing, they either leak electrolyte/balloon up/have raised/domed tops/or dry out
The rear of the set needs to be removed and the powercord traced to the powerboard on here is were you will see these devices like in the photograph, once found they will need to be replaced so an ability to utilise a soldering iron is required

The second likely cause is failure of the tcon (LCD Driver board)board this is the upper middle board of the set and drives the LCD display, if available its very easy to fit
I say if available because sometimes its not as its considered part of the LCD panel itself... their is also a chance that indeed it is the LCD panel
I will locate the tcon board

Let me know your capabilities here for handling this
