Chad Ross post some images of what your screen displays. Use this guide Adding images to an existing question for that. It will allow us to see what you see. If your screen clears up and shows properly after a while then it is most likely a capacitor issue most likely on the power board but possibly on the t-con board as well. Verify that your TV is a Samsung LA40R81BD

You just have to let it warm up until you're able to find a permanent solution.
