    Are you using the stock launcher (TouchWiz) or a 3rd party one (Nova, Go, etc.).? Are you using any lock screen manager?

    Touchwiz, stock. Even after reinstalls etc. No lock screen manager, it happened on 4.1 and still on 4.2. Just fades black from the top gradually.

    Yes.. Mine is Galaxy S3 JB 4.2.1 official Firmware. Am not using any third party launchers. If I change the wallpaper its appearing fine. After some time screen is going black gradually from the top.
    I already did reset 2 times. No use.

    Is there any solution?

    Are you using a stock wallpaper?
    How long does it take for the screen to start going black?
    If you reboot the phone does the screen "refresh" or does it still stay black?
    Have you checked Settings -> Display -> Auto adjust screen tone?
    I haven't seen anything like this, but I've only used one of the stock wallpapers.

    Wait. You have 4.2? It's not out officially for the phone so I assume that you're rooted and running a rom? Maybe a problem with that rom?

    I have the same problem.
    using android 4.2 downloaded from samsung official site.
    no root no hack nothing on it. the problem appear with default wallpaper, with pictures from phone camera and any other type of wallpapers.
    if the wallpaper is changed or reapply it appears ok, or reboot.
    But it starts again to fade in black from the top.
