15 year-old sony 27" - repair or replace

I have a HV27HSR10 that still has a great picture, but 2 issues. Can/Should I try to get it repaired?

1) when using composite inputs, it generates a lot of static on the internal speakers. The noise varies in pitch, and stops after a while. Pitch changes when I flex the tv's case.

2) sometimes on power-up the green overlay text (that shows the input) is not aligned where it should. Some of these times the entire image is stretched and cut-off. If I 'gently' punch the tube, the display will go blank. If i power off and on, it will display an image in black and while. Powering off and back on a 2nd time (all within 45 seconds) gives a perfect display (image and overlay). works every time.

Issue 2 is getting more frequent over time, Issue 1 has been around for a while, but is annoying now that I've removed the unit from my surround sound setup.

I appreciate any thoughts on the wisdom of trying to get it fixed (one shop said that parts would be hard to find for a unit built in 1991).

Dude its 15 years old let the poor soul retire and go for an upgrade. Hdtvs have come down alot in price now. And will continue to drop. I would suggest to you another sony tv. But sony is moving away from crt tvs.
