Re: the picture is fuzzy and shaped like a hour glass

I had the same issue. The screen would shrink and then expand over and over. After thrity minutes it would correct itself. 
After a few months of doing this it just broke - no sound and no videe but the power light was still on. 

I searched these forums but did not find clear instructions or kits on how to fix it. I gave up and called in a repair tech. He fixed my TV in less than 30 minutes. 

To help others I documented the fix and created a repair kit and step by step quide on how to fix the problem. You can find it here.

replace the convergence ICs STK392-120 you will need both of them also check the 6.8 ohm resistors right next to the ICs as often 1 or 2 of them burn open. You should be able to notice the discoloration in the center of the resistors.

Are your colors out of convergence also? If so this is a classic symptom of bad Convergence ICs.
