Symptoms like this are often to do with bad elco capacitors on the powerboard they either leak electrolyte/balloon up/have raised domed tops/ these will need to be visually examined first for these signs then the board will need to come out and the capacitors replaced, do you have any soldering experience or know someone who has?the caacitors themselves are about $1 each from radio shack or similar
Here is a photo of what I mean notice the leaking and slightly raised tops....graphic

If you can't do this another option is to replace the powerboard however this would depend on availibility

A tech would probaby charge $200 to replace the capacitors subject to the set being brought to a repair facility

Let me know if you need any more info
