Thanks for the info.

Sorry to hear that, this kind of problem occurs due to internal failure of display panel (the screen) and entire screen will be replaced to resolve the issue but it would not be feasible repair because the display panel would cost more than new TV price of same size if it is still available with Samsung parts. You would be better off with a new TV instead of spending money on this old one.
I wish I had better news about the TV problem, Please feel free to respond if you have any additional questions.
