Yes more detail is definitely needed, however not ignoring may keep someone else from getting a solution they need so...

Whenever someone's television is displaying a bad picture the order of troubleshooting at home is first source, next signal, then service (what I like to call the three S's).

Personally, in your case natedoggs, I think it is a settings issue. Sometimes I see the pictures on some of these in the store and I frown :( thinking that no one is going to purchase a television with a picture like that even though it is a good television. So, the first thing I do is change the picture mode based on what is being shown.

Samsung's choices are standard, dynamic, natural, movie, game, custom...
I also try turning on/off/high/low the Eco dimming and the dynamic contrast.
If that still doesn't work, I tweak each of the settings until I am pleased. (Then reset picture settings if all else fails).

Back to everyone else: Source - check each device that is attached to the television to make sure you get a bad picture from all of them.

Setting - If all the sources show a bad picture, then do some tweaking like I recommended to natedoggs above

Service - If you are absolutely certain it is not one of the devices or the myriad of settings choices these days, you may have a service issue :(

Samsung has standby light, it blinks tone sounds no green light. Replaced t-con, power supply and control boards.

Hi Patrick,

have a close look at your LVDS cable and screen ribbons for signs of failure or heat damage, and you could try to pull a picture from an AV output in various formats to see if it's the screen itself is failing in some way,

After a thunder storm i have sound, no picture, the tv powers up, the back lights are on, should i suspect a bad lcd screen?

Something else is going on. The T-Con board has no other function than controlling the picture. If there is a separate board for the led drivers, I'd suspect that one. The main board controls the sound.
