After at least 1/2 hour of use, the screen on my Samsung TV

Customer Question

After at least 1/2 hour of use, the screen on my Samsung TV goes black. I still have audio. If I turn it off, then turn it on again, the picture will come back for a short while.
This problem started infrequently about 2 weeks ago, but is getting more frequent. What should I do?

Hello my name is Anthony<
Thanks for the Question
If you press the menu button of the sets own remote control during the fault does the menu come up please?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
My TV has been off for awhile, and is currently working as it should when I turned it back on.
It only shuts down after a period of time.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Should I wait until it goes black again? That may be awhile.
Expert:  Anthony_Infotech replied 2 years ago.
No there is no need to wait I can tell you with 95% surety that its very likely the back-light is going out intermittently now the suspects in the frame for this are the inverters the powerboard and the backlights themselves checks would be needed beginning with the inverters as the issue is intermittent its likely to be bad grounding on the inverters are you able to perform any work yourself with the set?as an overview the back of the set will need to come off and the inverters removed
