You have actually diagnosed your own problem, Let me explain; the line "I can slap the left side of the tv and picture will almost always come back on" This indicate some form of poor connection (cold solder joint). If you have a soldering iron, solder (circuit type not pipe type), and a multimeter. Use the soldering iron and solder to redo the cold solder joints , and then test it (the connection) with the multimeter.
I hope this helps

Sounds like you lost the power supply to guns, now this doen't mean you have to go looking for it, you will need a repair person to fix it. Word of advise, if you haven't had one of these fixed before it can range in upwards of 600.00 or more to fix now days.

SOURCE: picture goes out
Has the lamp ever been replaced on this TV? If not it would be the first suspect. The next time the picture goes out look for light coming from the back of the TV where the lamp is. If you see no light then replace the lamp. Please take a few moments to rate my answer. Thank you...

First to isolate the loose connection from fault, check the cable connectors from the lamp and the ballast board. Pull-out the cables and then re-insert. Also check the ballast board from bad solder joints (crack/cold/dry joints). This is hard to spot I would advice you to work in the brightest area or use table/portable lamp to locate it. Once found, re-solder it.
You have to check also leaky/dried electrolytic capacitor in the ballast board and its power supply. This will do the same symptom. You must have a capacitor checker because not all of it bulged/dome at the top.
Another parts concerned is the lamp itself. Once near to its peak burning life it will produced an intermittent fault like what you've experienced right now.
If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't do the job yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified technician to troubleshoot the unit.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
