I think that you will have to call a TV engineer out or if under warranty call Samsung as I suspect that your screen has developed a fault.

* With the TV in standby, press the {INFO} {MENU} {MUTE} {POWER} buttons on the remote.
* The TV will turn On with the Service Menu displayed.
go to reset
* Press the {POWER} button to exit the Service Menu.
