The picture on my Sony is shaped like an hour glass

There is an apparatus on the back of your picture tube called a yoke.This distributes your picture on your pic tube uniformly.If this or the circuits enabling it malfunction,then you will get distortion-namely an hour glass shape.Tv has to be trouble shooted.

Our Insignia NS-30HTV picture is sort of hour-glass shaped on the edges. About 2-3 inches on each side of the picture is missing. How do you fix?

In my experience, this indicative of TV tube failure. However, just to be sure, try resetting the TV to factory defaults by entering the onscreen menus, select Picture, then reset. Also, power-cycle your TV (turn it off and unplug for several minutes). More details can be found in the owner's manual. If these steps don't resolve the display issue, you may call 1-888-237-8289 in the U.S. or 1-866-237-8289 in Canada to schedule in-home service.

Tv picture shaped like hour glass

Big cap in the regulation ckt is bad. Depending on model could be various values, a shop could use their ESR meter to find and replace it.

The picture is convexed,or hour glass.

Sounds like problem in B+ voltage line to horizontal output transistor. Possible bad filter capacitor or leaky diode in power supply.
