There are probably others who can give you concrete repair advice.
However, I just want to check with you that you are aware that the SAM
has a non-standard SCART connector? See:
http://www.worldofsam.org/node/350. I believe the symptoms you
describe can result in this when you are lucky. It does not need the
RF part in the power supply for SCART. I'm sure others will chime in
with better advice as they wake up. :-)
