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.

Hi, It sounds like your TV has a Pincushion problem based on your post/description. There is a big chance that this is just a colder solder/loose connection but of course an on-site diagnosis would be better. Since this involve opening the unit and working on the electronics inside, I would suggest that you seek the services of a qualified TV professional.
