There is probably some cold solder connections on the circuit board, or with some of the connectors that are working with the pin correction and or convergence circuits.

An experienced TV service man should be able to service this for you. These types of faults can be time consuming to locate and service.

Considering that the set is 8 years old, I would be seriously looking at a new set! As the set ages its reliability will decrease. Investing money to service it does not mean there will not be other problems with it.

Tv picture distorted

Depending on how long it has been used. Many a times the problem is caused with DJs or simply dry joints what I normally do is open the panel in a clean environment then switch it on make sure the picture is on then with the back of a screw driver tap gently on the ddc card if you see pictures coming back to normal and off again you have your culprit go ahead and solder carefully the dry joints on the ddc card ddc stands for data display channel

What's the usual shape of a coffee table?

The textbook coffee table shape is rectangular although furniture designers create endless variations on this shape, in which the table surface is just one component. You should consider how you'll be using it. If you frequently entertain guests, you may want to consider a circular or oval coffee table. Round furniture pieces tend to be better at gathering groups of people, and they are easier to maneuver around safely.

Dirty tank has no water after the whole cycle.

Turn the tank over. It's transparent on the underside, and there are two oval-shaped openings that stick out more than an inch, located toward the middle. On the far right and far left sides, next to each oval opening, there is another opening. (These are oddly shaped-- one round, one large and curved like Roomba's filter.) Rinse all four of these openings really thoroughly with warm water. The water should go in one opening and come out one of the others. (This should happen when you put water in every one of the four ports.) Do not be surprised if you get clots of dirt out of there. This is generally what keeps Scooba from being able to pick up water. Then, if this works for you, make the tank rinse part of your regular cleaning routine and it shouldn't happen again.

Fuzzy picture, oval shaped, scrolling up slowly

I would start by checking the large filter capacitors in the power supply. I can't be sure since I'm not seeing the set, but it sounds like you're describing AC ripple. In a 20-year-old set, some of those electrolytics will be drying out. A few replacements may take care of the trouble for you.

Picture on monitor is distorted

I went to the panel buttons, and then punched the reset for each of the icons on the menu. That restored the display picture to its factory settings. The degaussing did not help the picture, and any stray magnetism is generally automatically degaussed when the computer starts up. As to the flickering of the picture, that is because of the refresh rate. I am using a relatively updated operating system, and the refresh rate has changed somewhat. I also believe the temperature of the computer affects the flickering. I hope this comment helps someone who has a similar problem.
