You didn't say what model you had, but I believe this to be a fairly generic issue anyway that's affecting a wide variety of manufacturers at this time.

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.

This sounds like the power supply board has gone bad. Someone knowledgeable in electronics can check the fuse(s) on the board. If necesary, the board can be replaced.

Black and White


on a low signal input to the set the first thing you loose is the color, then it goes snowy and then just snowwhite in a snow storm or all blue with no sound.

check your cables for no shorts and loose connections,
sometimes the color killer control inside the set in the color circuit has to be tweaked alittle.
