This sounds like either a convergence or pincushion problem.

SOURCE: Picture distortion

This should cost you about 300 to 400 bucks to repair. If the service wants more, they are ripping you off. The convergence IC's are whats bad in this set and both of them cost less the 30 bucks. Good Luck

SOURCE: distorted picture on RCA LCD TV

I have the same tv. Had repair man come to my home in late april. Said it is the power convergence board. $225 for parts and labor I was told. Bad thing is part was supposed to arrive mid-may,then mid-june and now mid-july. He say's part is on back order. I'm actually going to contact RCA soon to find out if this is true. This seems to be a common problem with this particular T.V

SOURCE: Sony kP-57ws500 picture is distorted not right

It calls convergence problem due to failure of convergence output ICs.
If you want to repair it at your own, let me know if you have basic electronics knowledge and little experience to guide you more.

could be a deflection problem or if picture is somewhat small top or bottom or both only a vertical problem--if very old set parts may no longer be available.

Fujifilm s1730 when i take a picture the buildings on the outside of the picture curve inwards and are not vertical as it should be


When shooting wide angle pictures (as you would be doing when shooting buildings) the sides of the pictures will curve inwards...the wider the angle, the more pronounced the curve will be. This is perfectly normal.

Bad convergence IC possible - It's cheap if you do it your self, expensive if you take it to a repair shop. My Toshiba finally came on and stayed on after the IC's burned completely up and smoke poured out the back. Then mine stayed on with a distorted image.
