I picked up a LG CT-29K30E TV it was working fine, then I put it in the car and drove for an hour and a half with it on the backseat.
Got home turned it on and the right and left edges of the screen are curved inward about an inch or so.
I didn't bump the TV whilst moving it and I have gone through the user manual to be sure it is not set to wide screen and to make sure all the settings are correct.
My dad gave me the TV and he has never had a problem with it.
I hope you can help,

Re: Bowed vertical edges on screen
This is a problem with the pincushoin circuit, most likely a bqd capacitor. I don't have service information for your specific model, but a service shp shouldbe able to resolve this cheaply. It is possible that there are poor solder connections inside the set that the move may have aggrivated as well. If the set is no longer under warranty and you can solder, try resoldering any connections on the board that appear grainy or have rings. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside hte set even when unplugged.

Most common are soldering problems on the vertical deflection IC's.
If this line is quite bright: shut down the set, it might damage the picture tube permanently. Resolder all pcb connections under the vertical defl. part. With a magnifier you can see "craters" around the footprints. Where is the vert. deflection. ? Mostly an integrated circuit
on a vetically mounted heatsink . Typnumber: mostly something TDA53xx like. Gently knocking with a screwdriver and observing the screen might lead you to it's location if you're not familiar with TV's.
Watch out: lethal voltages !
There is an IC which controls the vertical deflection and over the course of a few (or 8) years with the set heating up and cooling off some of the connections work their way loose causing the symptoms you describe. If you were to bang on the side of the set you could likely "pop" it back in but this is not a good solution. The vertical IC needs to be re-soldered. This is especially common in Panasonic sets. About 10 minutes with a soldering iron should have it worked out.
If you're handy with a soldering iron I can tell you what to look for.
Check its vertical output section circuit for any component damage or loose soldering terminals. Check the solder terminals of the vertical output IC. Resolder all the suspected solder terminals by applying al little more fresh solder, without making any solder bridge short in between adjacent solder terminals. If this do not help you, replace the vertical output IC. Lose of Vertical Scan is the problem of your TV.
What you're describing sounds like a vertical deflection problem if it also occurs when you're watching a TV program. This type of trouble is a component failing in the vertical circuit of your set. A loose solder connection could cause this.
On the other hand, if it just happens when you run the VCR, your problem could be somewhere in the tape drive mechanism or possibly a bad tape. Things like slipping clutches,bad belts sticking guide rollers are a few things that will cause this in a VCR.
You need to have a tech check it for you.
Hope this gives you some help.
