It sounds like you are saying the "video looks scrambled but the audio keeps playing OK"
Normally this is a Video Processor Problem that requires a Board to be replaced.
When the problem happens, can you see the TV menu or the TV's On Screen Display clearly.
I suggest checking to see if the problem happens with the video inputs like, Composite(yellow/red/black), component(RGB/yellow and black), HDMI and S-video. If it happens to all inputs then you need to replace a board.

may be a mainboard problem. If you can see the orange light it usualy means that there is power running through the TV... usually inverter boards are a problem when you do not see any backlight at all.

It seems to be a PSU (Power Supply Unit) problem. When you unplug it and replug, the screen comes on for a moment. That means that the capacitor does not hold charge for long. Open the back and look for bulged or burst capacitors on the module where the power cord meets inside. Replace the whole module if you can not replace the capacitor with exactly the same specs.

verify if it only happens on the antenna/cable input and if it works fine with dvd or other input, then it is a signal issue with the cable or antenna u r using and repair that problem and not the tv

if you have comcast you can use your remote to change the tV program from cabke to DVD then change it back to cable. your image should come back.
