The fact that the picture was curved tells me that the pincussion circuit was faulty. If your not a tech then your gonna have to get a pro to assist you with this repair as everything is soldered in and theres no user replaceable parts in this set as they are all soldered in. If you know electronics then the most common parts for the set being dead would be the hi-voltage transformer and the horizontal output.. Also the small coil l401 has to be resoldered. Now for the pincussion circuit you gotta check waveform on base of tl81 for 13.7 vpp and if its not there replace IL81 and RL81. If its is there then check the transistor TL81 and TL82 & CL85. Im sure you will find on of them to be bad. Lke I said if your not a tech you can get a bad shock piddleing with this set. Good Luck

RCA 60" Rear Projection TV Model P60925bl TV screen curved on the top and bottom. Colors are not aligned and images are blurred.

this would be the convergence IC 's that need replacing
if you are going to have a tech come out to do the repair it will cost between 3 or 4 hundered dollars
if you are going to do the repair yourself ( meaning that you can solder and indentify the convergence chips and test the resitors on it) then it will cost about $40 or so
