Call Samsung. Sounds like(or at least it could be) a dead power supply from bad capacitors. Long running problem for Samsung TV.

Unless you want to buy an Ebay power supply(last I checked...which wasn't recently, there were people selling repair or exchange...or whole power supplies) repair/exchange.

 

Just like Onkyo X07 HDMI board(707, 807 etc) there are "fix-its" for Samsung. Unless you can drop it off somewhere for a quick look-see...

 

99% of the advice you are going to get is power supply. And even then it is a shot in the dark.

Not the cord. The "innards" that cord plugs into. 

 

Removing the power supply isn't difficult. You have to unplug the TV for 24-48 hours for complete electrical discharge first.

 

You can't "look in there", you have to remove it.

Ok thanks. When I said looked in there I just meant at the capacitors since all I can find online for the most part is that those I guess "explode" and u change those to fix it.

Just because a cap went bad, doesn't mean it ballooned. It could simply be the solder went bad.
