Magnavox ms 3252s431 Bad picture and turns off by itself

I have a 32 inch Magnavox ms 3252s431 the picture on the right side from top to bottom about 1-2 inches in is wavey. The set also turns itself off,runs the volume on it's own.Sometimes when I push the volume control on the tv itself it turns the set off. Other than the wavey area the picture & color are normal as is the volume.

Small picture

If a standard set and not a LCD etc it has a picture tube, width is a product of the high voltage circuit in that set---this is called the deflection circuit----deflects the picture top to bottom and also left to right, most likely a bad cap or if a wave like motion can be seen in the picture maybe power supply but that is rare.

Not knowing the age, size or value of the set if it is over 5 years old or the screen size is under 32 inches just replace it.

If no major part is bad the repair could exceed 100 dollars.

Tv turns off right after i turn it on

I have not repaired one of these in a lonng time. But lets take a stab at it. I would guess You have bad solder connections on the vertical IC. Resolder this and replace the cap near the IC. Now the reason for the shut down is cured. The white screen will appear and you will have audio and be able to hear the channels change, You need to replace the eeprom. Hope this will help you! I don't have location #s, so this is just off the top of my mind.

Folddover at top of picture about an inch from top

Replace cap. 2465 and cap. 2561. That should take care of it unless the vertical transistors are bad or there are other bad caps.
