Samsung LN-T4061F problems turning on, picture random lines

So I purchased a 40 inch model LCD Samsung flatscreen LN-T4061F in September 2007. Recently there had been problems with the TV turning on. At first it would take a minute or two but it progressively got worse. Eventually, when it did turn on I'd get these random lines and colors and such. At first if I turned it off and back on the picture would be fine.
Just the other day I started experiencing "image persistence" problems, so I decided to turn the tv off and unplug for several hours.
Now it won't turn on unless I leave it unplugged for a few minutes and when it does it's just random lines.
I've never had a problem with a tv before. It's annoying because I still owe close to 600 bucks on it and now it's going to cost 150 bucks for the service guy just to look at it.
The service rep mentioned it might be a power supply problem. Could that mean it could be as simple as a faulty power socket on my end or is it something to do with the TV.
