Weird shaped picture

I have a 27" RCA built in Oct 92, Model #F26051EM. The picure has a strange shape. It is narrow at the top. It comes in about 3" on both sides. I just purchased it used so I do not know the history of the set. Can the picture problem be fixed and how?

You have whats called a pincussion problem. Its not or should'nt be a major repair, but unless your an experienced tech, Its not the type of repair you should attempt to do. Call a pro. Good Luck

We have a black screen with no picure, but dvd's have picture and so does close caption writing. Any ideas????

Sounds like its either your cable service or the cable being used to connect your cable box to your TV. The cable of course is my first suspect but on your tv how are you connecting to cable it is a coax cable or rca ect. ??

The picture on my Sony is shaped like an hour glass

There is an apparatus on the back of your picture tube called a yoke.This distributes your picture on your pic tube uniformly.If this or the circuits enabling it malfunction,then you will get distortion-namely an hour glass shape.Tv has to be trouble shooted.

good day.
The case you encounter with your unit is just a minor one. Most often caused by loose contacts particularly in the horizontal circuitry. Try to have the circuit be resoldered.

response is highly appreciated.
