Try opening it up, then cleaning the dust out of the heatsinks, and casing.

Your power supply will always get warm. Since it is an old gaming system the technology in the supply is not as efficient as todays power supplies.

If there is a slight alteration with the graphics then perhaps the AV cables you purchased are old. Inspect the ports that it is connected to for any broken pins or excessive dirt. If the slight graphics issue poses an annoying problem you could look into testing a different cable.
