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.

if it's still under warranty- get it replaced!! while you can!
shouldn't be doing this! at least until warranty runs out- you know how that goes!!
if it was quite expensive- might try for extended warranty- if not too outrageous!

SOURCE: i have a samsung flatscreen
With the lights in the room turned off, does your TV screen still glow when it is turned on even though there is no picture signal there?
Is the sound still working or does that shut off too?
Does the small power indicator light change color when you turn the set on and when it shuts off by itself?
If your screen stays completely black, then most often this symptom is a result of a failing POWER SUPPLY but a faulty MAIN BOARD or INVERTER BOARD can certainly cause very similar symptoms. Unfortunately, without a donor TV to swap parts with or a dedicated test rig, it can be very difficult to differentiate between these problems.
One quick way to test this is to remove the rear access panel on the TV and replace the power supply circuit board with a new one, since this is the most often the source of the trouble.
You can usually find replacement supply circuit boards online by searching for your TV's model number.
Here is a link to the SHOPJIMMY.COM parts supplier website which lists all the replacement circuit boards available for your model of TV along with their prices:
And here is the direct link to the POWER SUPPLY CIRCUIT BOARD for your set:
Just use your mouse to click on the link, which is the underlined and highlighted text just above. This will open a new web browser page automatically for you and allow you to view the information and items at the website indicated.
The repair / replacement procedure is not extremely difficult if you have some basic electrical safety knowledge and some basic electronics / mechanical repair skills.
You will need to unplug the power cord from the unit, lay the TV screen side down on something soft and flat like a bed if necessary, and then remove the rear access panel or the entire rear cover as required in order to access the circuit boards inside.
When you remove the rear cover and access the circuit boards inside, just check the part number that is printed right on your circuit boards and confirm that they exactly match the ones provided in the online listing. Also make sure that any part you order is labelled "TESTED WORKING" in the condition description. Any part with a condition description of "AS IS" is probably faulty itself as well.
Then unclip and remove the various electrical wire connectors leading to the power supply circuit boards. Then remove the screws securing the circuit board to the TV frame and then remove the power supply circuit board. Be sure to avoid touching any large capacitors on the circuit board which can retain a nasty charge even after the unit is unplugged.
Then just screw in the new circuit board and connect all the wire bundles to their appropriate connectors on the new circuit board and then replace the rear cover. Then plug in the power cord and test.
