Sounds like the red convergence Ic is weak ready to go out. try replacing the ICs around 10.00 do the blue as well as that will be next.

Screen is showing a 3d effect. also the picture shows an outline also of pictures

The convergence IC has gone out. The convergence IC is either on the Main bd or the power supply bd depending on the specfic model and must be replaced and a Full convergence must be performed. Only a Samsung trained tech can do this. It will not be cheap.
