Is this happening on all input sources (HDMI, Component, etc), or just with your cable/satellite box source? The way the picture is distorting would suggest some sort of digital interference. Try switching it to a DVD when it starts that and see if it still happens. If it doesn?t, you might want to see if the cable box (or connection cable from the cable box to your tv) is the issue.

If you get that screen on all your inputs, then yes, I would definitely suggest a call to 800-SAMSUNG to set up a service.

Thanks for including the picture. That?s always helpful, since there are several different versions of picture distort on a screen.

Keep us posted!
