Picture has hourglass look and has split screen picture hourglass comes and goes but split screen is continual

If hour glass on conventional set it is either pincussion circuit or power supply---by split screen if you mean folded over top to bottom in the middle that is in the same areas.

I own a Philips 34PW8502/37, The picture is hourglass shaped, the images "bow-in" on the left and right of the screen

You have an East/West error caused by an amplifier that "modifies" the frame pulse and modulates the line scan to compensate for a tupe that has not got a 90degree scan.
Follow the scan coil leads and there will be probable dry joints and the pcboard or a power IC that has failed.
Hope this helps but a service manual will be of great assistance to you.

TV comes on but after a while there becomes a hourglass shape on screen. It is drawn in 1/2 inch on the sides. Can this be fixed cheap?

yes. has a pincushion circuit problem. since tv works and then starts to bow, its a bad solder connection. when tv warms up the metal expands and looses connection. when cold, the solder constricts and unit works fine. just solder deflection area. you can probably tap on board and locally find area to solder.

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.

Hourglass Picture

Pulling in from the sides usually results from poor regulation or width problems related to the horizontal circiut. These are not usually repaireable by a non technician.

Hourglass shape on left and right side-ballpark repair price please

The shape your seeing is called 'V Bow' and 'Pincushion' which needs to be calibrated again. Theres probably a diode that went out. The tech can open it up and adjust the angles back. I wouldn't charge over $100-$150. Shop around for a good repair tech. Good Luck poe_diddley.
