RCA 32V432T picture problem

I have a RCA 32" 32V432T, about 1 1/2 - 2 yrs old. Recently had a power outage, after which the picture on the screen is shaped like an hourglass. There's about a 2" black gap on each side of the screen. I've tried unplugging the TV for a few hours and plugging it back in, no luck. Sound is fine, and the color/quality of the hourglass shaped picture is good, just distorted into the shape of the hourglass. Any suggestions/solutions would be appreciated.

I have a RCA 32V432T 36in...the screen is light blue with white horizontal looks like a film in front of the actual picture...there is still audio though. what's going on?

There are two main causes for this fault. The first one is, advanced screen voltage to the screen grid of picture tube. The second one is leaky blue video output transisotr.
Just open your TV, and locate the screen control. It usually can be located with LOT [Line Output Transformer]. There will be two adjustable controls integrated to this LOT, marked as screen and focus. Out of which, the lower one will be for screen adjustment, and the upper one for focus adjustment. Just rotate the screen control [the lower one] to a little counterclockwise, so that the thin horoizontal lines on the screen just fade of. Adjustment is critical and should be done with care, and a small movement may just be enough. If it does not help you, repalce the blue video output transistor. This part can be located at the bace card [the printed circuit board fitted to the neck of the picture tube]. Locate it, replace it. OK.

I have a 32" RCA 32V432T TV that only shows snow now. I've checked everything externally but still no picture. Any solutions?

There could be several things that can cause this: 1. There are no analog channels in your area. 2. Check the menu setup and verify that you select the proper input (antenna, cable, etc). 3. The TV tuner is defective Try using the composite input on the TV (there are normally 3 jacks per input). Yellow for video and red and black for audio. If you dont have the proper cable, pick one up in you local 99 cent store or an electronic store.
Connect the "output" of your device (VCR, cable box, Tivo, dvd player, etc) to the "input" on the TV. Then use your TV remote to select the proper input.
Hopefully this helps. Good luck.

This set is not digital tuning and you would need a converter for off-the-air reception. You can get full specs and manual downloads from RCA's site:

32" rca picture stretched

Before you fool around with this, it may be under warranty. Check that first. Second, does the picture stretch in both directions or just vertically? If just vertically is it more pronounced at the top?
