Yes you could get the screen replaced, however the cost of this now-a-days is almost equal if not more expensive than purchasing a new TV. It is not always economical to have the screen replaced, it is maybe more worthwhile to think about buying a new one instead.

This sounds like a very common issue.
If set is hard to turn on (takes several tries)but will eventually turn on hereis what my guess would be.
Every set has a standby power supplythat is running 7/24 if the set is plugged in and it supplies voltage to theremote circuit that turn on the main power supply for the tv and hence turn theset on.
This is an area where companies cut corners by using lower rated voltage caps.By this I mean Standby usually provides under 10 volts to trigger the seton----what they do is use filter caps rated at say 10 volts max in a circuitwith 9 volts (example)=with the standby on all the time the filter caps(electrolytic caps) dry out and fail.
The problem usually begins where you have to turn set on or or two times andgradually gets worse--takes longer and more tries to get it to come up.
Once on it will stay on until turned off for a period of time.
The caps will begin to work better (regain some of thecapacitance) as they get hot--hence one it is on it will seem ok.
The beauty of this problem is most of themhappen when set is a year or two old (no warranty) and all you have to do islook at the top to locate bad ones.
They are generally black or blue and round and vary in --they have twoconnections each--a + for positive and a - for negative--not unlike a batterywhich in a way they are. The + and - are marked on top and bottom of most boards.
They are easy to replace and not expensive parts.
The tops are silverand metal looking with creases on top and if bad they will be puffed up ontop---tops must be perfectly flat with no brown material leaking top or bottom.
If this is your problem once you id them (make a drawing) you can begin.
Here is the critical part---on each cap is also marked the value like 220uf 10vdc---220 micro farad at 10 volts maximum.
If you find for example 6 puffed up and all are 10 vdc replace them with thesame value capacitance (like the 220 uf) but go up to at least in this case(from 10 volts) to a 16 or higher rated voltage cap.
The only issue is when you go up in voltage rated value the cap is larger sosometimes there is an issue of physical space for the replacement on the boardto fit them in.
The reason they cheapen these sets in this way is if 10 caps and you make25,000 sets there is a considerable savings in parts cost.
They do not care as long as it lasts past the usual one year parts warranty.
I have taken the time to be long winded because this really sounds like it maybe the problem you have.
See attached photo of a typical cap and if you have questions or need advicelet me know.
At the very least look at power supply board to see if puffed up on top caps like these which are bad.

Sky+ Remote Control Unit Programming Procedure Follow the steps below
1. Select any channel on the TV.
2. Point your Sky+ remote control away from the TV and press the tv button.
3. Press and hold down the Select and red buttons simultaneously on the Sky+ remote control until the red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control flashes twice.
4. Input the 3 digit number from the Sky+ remote control codes then press the Select button. The red light at the top of the Sky+ remote control should flash twice.
5. Point the Sky+ remote control at the TV and try the volume button.
* If this works try the other TV functions.
* If these work then the correct code has been selected.
* It's important to note that not all TV functions will be supported by the Sky+ remote control e.g. Picture in Picture.
If all functions do not work correctly, then repeat steps 1 - 3 and work through all the relevant 3 digit numbers from the Sky+ remote control codes, until you find the code which supports all or as many of the TV functions as possible.
Please note: In order to operate both your TV and Sky+ with your Sky+ remote control, you will be required to switch modes e.g. to switch on your TV from stand-by, you would need to press "TV" followed by the "Stand-by" button. Then to change channel on your Sky+ you would need to press the "Sky" button followed by the "TV guide" button
