If its poor starting to begin with then its likely the set has bad capacitors on the power-board a very common issue with samsungs of this era, your other issues will all be associated with that so the first thing that needs to be done is a visual inspection of these devices looking for leaking\ballooning up\raised domed tops, do you think you can do this yourself?or are you not comfortable doing this?ultimately it will mean replacing the capacitors or easier replacing the board (subject to the visual checks) let me know please thanks
