Question about Panasonic CT-35XF53 35" TV
Has an hourglass shape when first turned on but then goes away after a few minutes
Your TV set has trouble in its "pincushion correction" circuitry, which corrects distortion so the picture is straight on the screen. Unfortunately, it's not possible to pin the trouble down to a specific part without having the set for troubleshooting. Since the trouble clears up after the set's on for a time, it's probably due to a faulty capacitor or intermittent solder connections. Because of the troubleshooting skills and tools needed, you should let a professional service shop handle the repair. This kind of problem is relatively inexpensive to repair (at least parts-wise; I've been out of the repair business for a while now, and have no idea what kind of labor prices shops are charging) and would not cost nearly as much as a replacement TV.
