I turned on my tv and it was playing fine and then the picture bowed so i turned it off and it didnt come back on no picture or sound could it be the tube ? and where is the tube in the set and where if needed can
can i have it repaired or tube replaced also how much would that cost me.
The most common cause for a bowed picture is the convergence power supply module. The module will fail and sometimes blow the fuse.
Average cost of repair would be around $100, if you brought it to a tv shop, more for in home service.

i have had this problem on one of my tv s all i did was remove the back of the tv and re-solder all the joints around the tuner (thats where the arieal goes) they go with time because the joints there get so hot . hope this helps
Thats usually a very easy repair by replacing FL231, DL231 and CL230 total parts are about 11.00 at the following link and they provide free instructions. The components are all listed under RCA parts category. http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/
yes it could ba the cable itself even, but i suspect more the tuner circuit or tuner itself may have bad solder connections. Here is another test for you to try, plug another dvd or vcr, or xbox etc. into the back, using one odf the inputs. See if this works like the built in dvd. if so it will be more likely bad connections in the tuner or surrounding circuit.
