Your plasma screen is made up of 1080 verticle lines and now a few of these lines are not working. This is the screen itself and needs replacing.

Screen on JVC TV distorted

There is an Aspect button on the Remote for the TV. This button will fix this problem.

Aspect function strectches the picture horizontally or vertically to get rid of black bars in some movies. Sometimes this is good....sometimes bad

Our 37" Toshiba has developed a concave picture

This is called "pincushion distortion" and the circuit that is supposed to correct it is not working. This is often due to solder connections to some parts failing because of heat. It may also be caused by component failure. It is a problem that is not difficult to correct once the bad connections are repaired or parts replaced, and the cost of a repair would be far less than replacement cost.

The screen picture bulges inwardly on the right and the left

you have defective horizontal linearity! replace the capacitor at the hot side mostly 160uf 180V or 160uf 160V.
